O.K. well I received my Masterpiece Skywarp today. My reaction to this new repaint is mixed. Let me begin with (and I do not remember anyone else mentioning these things so forgive me if I am offering already known info). I noticed 2 major improvements to this mould in comparison to MP Starscream. The first of these is the shoulder joints. Big improvement here, the ratcheting is much smoother than on SS and the outward and upward movement of the arms to the sides (for example like he’s flapping his arms) is much less tight. This is pleasing to me. I do not feel like I’m going to break him. The second of these improvements is the legs. Extending the legs down is so much easier than on SS. Now with the random changes. Not really good or bad just …..well new stuff. First is the hardware holding the waist onto the torso. Here we have a pin where on SS resides a screw. Either one is good to hold on the lower extremities, however this is a complication for those of us that like to repaint this toy. We all know it is rougher to pull a pin than to remove a screw. Second of these differences is the “mean” face. In all honesty, to me he looks like he’s pushing a cyber-turd. Nuff said. At least SS “smirk” is believable. And now the negative. With my example of this figure the robot mode is near flawless. The F-15 E mode fits together like it was assembled in the dark. Can we say Picasso. I’ve seen D-derby cars with a better fit. As with many reports that I have read, the air break panel will not lay flush to the spine of the aircraft. But the worst is the seam under the main wing assembly. It just will not stay together. And the joints where the wing folds up on the back of the robot is still showing stress marks. My SS fit was seamless in both modes. I give Skywarp a 6.5 out of 10.
