    They ARE releasing Skywarp too? Was that announced at Botcon? If so, I missed reading it, and that is AWESOME.

    Cool to see these pics...but is anyone really into this mold?

    Starecream is an ok figure but do you guys like it enough to buy multiple repaints? Not I.

    I really do like this mold, and I think Thundercracker looks awesome. But I seriously doubt they'll release Skywarp. Ebay prices :(  bah

    Woah, this paint job looks like takara quality. Everything is well placed. And the light piping is a diffirent color to the windshield. Seeing the effort put into this figure, I guess my skywarp wont stand out as much as I thought.

    Looks brilliant. So have people seen Skywarp at Bot Con, just on a screen in a room with a no photography rule or has Hasbro announced a Skywarp or is this just guess work?

    Skywarp was mentioned and shown at the panel. But we're not missing much because it was just a grey prototype. My guess is they're still working on the colorscheme.

    Most people missed Skywarp, but as was said above, it was announced at the panels that he is coming to the US, and they did show the prototype (in grey).

    Me, I love this mold because it's Cybertronian, and I love Cybertronian alt modes more than I do Earth alt modes. Thundercracker is also my favorite of the Seekers, so I'm absolutely going to pick him up. I was resigned to not having Skywarp given I can't afford many of the Takara exclusives by sheer virtue of import prices (okay, it's really me just spending my money on US figs and getting more bang for the buck!), but when I had heard the US Skywarp was coming I pretty much knew I'd want to complete the FoC trio.
