    So I'm in the market for a big-ticket Transformer. I've got it narrowed down to RotF Leader Prime or wait for Masterpiece Skywarp.
    -The money isn't much of an issue (I can afford to pay the extra for Skywarp.)
    -I have limited shelf space
    -I've already got Masterpiece Prime. ( So I have a big OP)
    -I don't have Masterpiece Starscream and I'm kicking myself for passing that one up.
    -They're both awesome.


    Help!

    Skywarp. Movie toys have no soul.

    If I were you I would go for Badarse Convoy (RoTF Prime).
    Combining him with Jetfire gives a pure awesome display piece.

    Skywarp. That Prime mold can easily be found anywhere, but MP Skywarp is going to be hard to track down if he's like most WM exclusives. MP Skywarp will also be MUCH harder to find cheaper, as $60 is a steal compared to what the other version of him is.

    DEFINITELY Skywarp, just be careful and treat it like a collector's piece and you won't have any breaking issues. RoTF Optimus is a little overrated IMO.

    Another vote for Skywarp.

    The definitive version of Movie Prime hasn't been made yet, although they're getting closer.

    Skywarp. I find Prime to be highly overrated.

    Skywarp as he'll be the harder of the two to track down later.

    Get Skywarp first and if you can find him, then down the road get prime later.

    he'll ALWAYS be hard to track down (or nearly impossible) if the masterpiece starscream is any indication
