    I apologize if this has already been found and reported as my new duties at work dont allow as much time to scrounge the toy systems. I have found a listing for Leader class Skywarp(and Starscream which has already been found and reported I believe). Took a pic on my phone on the off chance it was newsworthy, but dont really have a way to get it on here.
    Please merge/lock if necessary

    I thought they said they were doing them all at Toy Fair months ago.

    You should be able to upload your pic as an attachment in this forum, I'd be interested to see what's what there. It's expected since Hasbro's team said they want to do the sets of three, but to actually see the computer screen would clinch it. Not knocking your reliability of course!

    Don't like the Thundercracker from Hasbro, I'll see if Takara makes it, the Starscream looks decent, and now for Skywarp. I'll pick up the most G1 looking ones for stand ins for MP scaled Seekers.

    How about a Jetfire repaint next?

    And talking of seekers, a Thundercracker and Skywarp repaint from Doubledealer.

    It's nice to see all three original seekers get their due even if i'm not fond of the Leader Jetfire mold being used as a seeker mold.

    Cool, I got Thundercracker in the mail yesterday. I can't wait to have Starscream and Skywarp join him on the shelf.

    Kinda my thoughts, I suspect I will pass on them, as I couldnt take the size difference between them and their conehead brethren(and acid storm). Plus thats alot of money to drop on whats essentially 3 repaints. MAYBE Skywarp if i can find him on clearance(as I did with Jetfire when my local TRU went out of business)

    Sweet. Just got Thundercracker from HTS the other day and looking forward to Starscream too. Skywarp is just icing to complete the Seeker trio.

    Fair to say you better hope they are able to get to him if you want all 3.

    I am hoping TakaraTomy does them because the robot modes need paint on the wings really bad.
