    Someone give Skywarp a break and just release him already. Guy's been put through enough with these polls.

    Blaster would be worth it if they released cassettes for him as well. I think I'll vote Skywarp tbh.

    If it's like the Soundwave pack and like the original Blaster release, they might not pack anyone with him (Soundwave got Buzzsaw because he came with him originally, Blaster had no one). If they were smart they'd do Rewind since he wasn't reissued in the US (unlike Steeljaw, Ramhorn, and Eject).

    Generations Metroplex...

    (but seriously, Blaster's probably better between the two)

    Yawn versus Yawn. Whatever happened to the vote with astrotrain? Did he end up winning?

    Yeah...I think Astrotrain is a done deal.

    I’m not sure which of these guys I’d want...if either. Probably Skywarp to go with my O.G. T-cracker and reissue Starscream just to complete the trio.

    Who am I kidding; I’ll probably get every one they release that I don’t already have in vintage form...

    EDIT: poll currently has Blaster winning by roughly 2:1...

    I voted for good old Skywarp, since I still have a G1 Blaster.
    However, since Warp has an MP and Blaster does not (but has long been rumored to be getting one), I'll gladly wait for MP Blaster......after we finally get MPs of Jazz, CJ and Mirage.

    I went Skywarp. He was my first Transformer, so he has special memories and it would be great to have him in the original packaging style again.

    I actually passed over Blaster for Perceptor when I was a kid (they were the same price). I might have been more inclined to get Blaster had he come with a minion like Soundwave did.

    I love Skywarp, he\'s getting all the pity votes because this about the 4th fan poll he\'s been in.

    I voted Blaster for the off-chance of his tapes also being released later, and never having the mold before.

    If the new kids stuff actually sold, Walmart might be inclined to stock more of it vs. empty shelves in most stores region-wide, state-wide, nationally?

    The vote is going strongly in Blasters favor. He's got 66% of the vote right now. He's a G1 character that does not get much love. and when he does he's often an after thought and retool of Soundwave.

    While there are seeker fans out there, the group of "Not Another Seeker" Fans is much larger & will win if aggravated enough...
