    Just saying this picture C60AD580-0F0A-4E60-BF7A-53CC3D1C1EC9.jpeg Had me like Randy from South Park B1D1DCBB-D092-4616-B324-09BB1560910C.png
    People are so certain that these pictures are of the final product when the fact is they could literally change the paint job even after they’ve sent early samples out to people. It depends on the feedback and I’m sure they’ve had plenty of people tell them but honestly I still really dig it. The black on the cockpit in my opinion helps to differentiate him from Blitzwing. But I’m fairly confident they will address the paint job. They’ve still got a month or 2 to make changes and updates based on feedback

    This is absurdly beautiful. Bring on figures of this quality of all of the BB Cybertron designs and I will be a day one purchase of every single one

    Now that Fans Toys has gone batshit crazy with their pricing, it's a good thing that other companies are making figures I am interested in. I will probably get the Skywarp version of this.

    Damn, that looks incredible! They really pulled it off in both modes and even managed to fit in a 3rd Earth-ish mode and it looks good too! I love the flip down visor they gave him, it's surprisingly Judge Dredd-esque.

    Honestly other than the weak paint on Hasbro/Takara SS I\'m not seeing a difference.

    That's because they're both pretty good representations of the same design. They're bound to have a lot of similar traits. But looking closer these figures are drastically different

    My biggest grip is his robot mode translucent cockpit doesn't end up as his cockpit on the jet mode. Such a waste because SS can do it.

    Looks pretty good. I'm not a fan of the face design, the rivets on the thighs(they look like LEGOS) and their slenderness but all things considered not too shabby.

    Oh MAN, I\'ve never been a fan of starscream\'s designs in the bayverse or G1, but I will GLADLY get an entire seeker set of this mold. If he\'s solid and fun to transform, I couldn\'t be more game. That\'s just Bad A.

    lol. I should have said I don't see enough of a difference and I can do a better paint job on both of them. So cheaper is better this time around I'd say.

    Can't change the size, detail, and quality using paint. It's a masterpiece figure vs a $30 toy, there is a massive gap there regardless.

    Oh I could with time. However This one just doesn't seem worth the cost when others will pop up that are probably better. Those Blitzwings though have been off the Fraggin hook!

    Not really. The torso is longer than it should be with some wonky panels on the legs and F-4 phantom jet thrusters on a cybertronian jet that never had those thrusters.
