    How much does Classics Skywarp usually go for? And Henkei Skywarp as well.

    Also, how much does Henkei Red Alert go for? With Generations Red Alert coming out do you think the Henkei version will drop in price at all, because I MUCH prefer the Henkei version

    Sorry for making a Price Check thread with 3 different figures but I thougt it be better than making 2 or 3 seperate threads

    Not sure about Skywarp but anything below 50 shipped sounds good for Red Alert.:thumbs2: .

    You can get Classics Skywarp below USD $40 on eBay, the Henkei version should set you back at USD $70 in the least. :)

    The interest in Henkei Red Alert will definitely fall, esp. as Hasbro is more accurate to the original toy (e.g. no stupid red head).

    Henkei Skywarp has gone for around £40-50 on his own (most auctions pair him with TC); regarding Classics Skywarp, I'm having trouble getting rid of one for £20, which isn't that much above retail for a standard deluxe.

    The interest in Henkei Alert has already tapered off.

    I wish it would taper off a little more as I don't fancy the Generations version.

    The Henkei one is more accurate to the Cartoon.

    I would say $50 would be a fair price for the Henkei version. I bought mine from Automaton toys when it first came and paid $40 shipped, so it was never really a cheap toy to begin with.

    I was looking for all 3 of these about 3 months ago. Classics US Skywarp was on ebay for about $50 with shipping which was also the best I could get an offer for here as well. Henkei Skywarp I wound up getting for $75. Henkei Red Alert was going for around $90. I couldn't find it cheaper anywhere, but Generations Red Alert hadn't been announced yet so he may have gone down since then. I still plan to get a few Generations version for customizing.

    The Generations version is more accurate to the original toy. Isn't it also accurate to the IDW/DW comic as well? So both versions are accurate in their own way.

    I already have the Henkei version, but I plan on replacing the limbs with those from the American release.
