    This quasi-grin on Skywarp makes me wonder if he likes jaAm as well...

    If I can get the cash, I still think I'd get him, though.

    Well, that face is a let down. Hopefully they'll change it before production. The purple is too purple, I'd like to see something more muted on it.

    Still, this will be a nice variation on a very cool mold. I wonder which parts will be diecast.

    Sorry Vangelus, the high hand face appears to be a regular face. The "snarly" face however looks like he's been watching too much Wallace and Gromit.

    Whilst I don't cry into my beer at Starcream's colours (I like them) there is an issue with his mold, and that's the legs. He stands fine, but the tailfins should have been dealt with properly - attaching them to his hips was pointless and lazy in my opinion, and it spoils an otherwise excellent figure.

    I do think his proportions are the best we've yet seen in a seeker, so that comment was a bit of a surprise. And I love the thickness of his arms - it really suits him.

    As for Skywarp - I'm curious to see what will become die-cast, but I'm not fond enough of the mold to buy it twice. I'll stick with what I've got and save my money for other TF goodness.

    Pass. If they did a thundercracker then yes I'd get one.
    But for now I'll stick with my Screamer. ;3

    Weirdest gimmick ever.
    They could have just given him one face and added another gimmick.
    I'd hate to see them package it with another odd colored Arkeville.

    Well. The pictures aren't that clear, and there's that awful watermark, so I might be wrong. But it looks like he's missing a lotttttttttttt of purple. Here's where there should be purple, but isn't:

    Tail wings.

    Upper arms. (and it should lose the damn dual-white stripe too)

    Feet.

    Wings. (The G1 and Classics version has a purple stripe running along the wings).

    And I'm not certain, but it looks like his "boobs" are black and the only silver is at the sides of his midsection.

    In my opinion, Skywarp had the coolest paint scheme of the 3 original seekers. It just had so much personality, which was pretty vital, since he barely talked in the old show. With so much of that purple gone (especially his wing-stripes), he loses a lot of personality and looks more like "generic thug #123102908."

    And this part might sound like weird nitpicking, but I wish the color of purple was different. I don't know how to say it, except that not once did you think G1 cartoon or toy Skywarp had any pink on him. with classics and now this one, it's just a bit too pink for my tastes. But then again, I compare this to Starscream's colors, and I'll just stop complaining.

    That gritting teeth is fugly. I almost thought it was a movie design, ZING!

    Definitely buying... have to even the odds with the alternators. Although I hope the next MP is Grimlock or Shockwave... okay, Thundercracker too.

    Where did the info come from that Skywarp is to have more metal than Starscream??
    If true that'd be nice.. I like some heft in my masterpieces!

    Anyway the teeth grinding face looks hilarious and the colours look pretty nice. I'll probably get it..

    Me too. I'm happy with him, although more die cast is something they should have done from the beginning.

    Skywarp looks pretty cool, but I would have much rather had a Thundercracker.

    Pass. I have yet to see a true MP Starscream. I like the mold, but not that much. And the teeth is horrible.

    BTW, Did they really ever cry in the comics? That's retarded. The one thing I don't like about Nick Roche's art in the new IDW is that he gives them teeth. Why the hell would they need teeth?!?!?!

    I just hope he isn't as glossy as the images suggest. It screws up the scale effect to have him shiny & sparkly lke that, and it'll jar with STARSCREAM when the two are together.
