    I was able to justify the $155 for Sovereign, but I have trouble going over the $150 mark for most not-MPs. Part of it also probably has to do with the fact Skyfire wasn't much of a character - Fire in the Sky was a really good episode and had an actual story to it, then the Autobots just dug him up (despite having earlier believed he died) then used him as a glorified transport until he sorta vanished midway through season 2.

    Sure, Astrotrain whined about being a glorified transport, but dammit, at least he had a personality. Skyfire...didn't. He was just there. Yeah.

    It's worth it at $40.

    After I got my 2nd Sky Guardian, I realised I should have used something like RC plastic gear lube, for the tight transformation hinges right above the elbows.

    Overal, I'm still happy with Sky Guardian, especially with my own shapeways upgrades to fill out the thigh legs. I've been a bit too lazy to paint my most recent own shapeways headsculpt for this guy,
    but when I receive some other shapeways stuff soon I will finally get to it. He simply fits nicely along my TR Takara Super Ginrai, TR Sixshot and Takara overlord in January.

    That X2-toys Skyfire looks like it'll be a pretty good toy, but I really don't dig the style and especially those arms just sitting aside the jet fuselage ; in that sense, it's sort of like a Hasbro 2006/2007 Jetfire revival.

    You know, I do too. Even with Phoenix looming over him on the shelf (and in every other respect) I still have room in my heart for Sky Guardian.
    But then I'm the guy who will focus on tossing bread to the ugliest, most scraggly looking duck in the pond so I probably have some kind of complex. :3

    Ooof, that face. Makes Kronos look like a pageant queen.

    I'm currently marvelling at Phoenix's face sculpt, so looking at this poor fellow just hurts.

    I paid 35 shipped for him.
    Isn't bad.
    Had to unscrew and move stuff right out the box.
    Where can I find instructions to transform him.
