    Just have to wait and see. For me, just as long as it's obtainable in Canada.

    At first, I didn't think anyone would pay the high Ebay price. But now after seeing like 8 of them on ebay a few days ago, I check now and there is only 1.

    Some people will pay a markup to get it early or guaranteed

    I'm even looking at how much a normal voyager costs plus 3 Battlemasters with tax and realize it's not so bad. The extra money I can say it was shipping cost.

    I paid £63.16 for mine quite happily.

    The G2 Sideswipe box was £65 when briefly on Amazon UK, so it's a reasonable assumption the Skywarp box will be at least the same price when Amazon UK eventually get it..... if they do.

    We know from Greelight that getting a .com Skywarp to the UK will be about the same price as a Amazon.co.uk Skywarp.

    Beyond that I'm not a Prime member and beyond the occasional exclusive have no interest in doing some. A Prime membership in the UK would not let me buy any of these from Amazon.com - friends with Prime membership have tried with Greenlight and failed.

    At least one of the UK dealers - IDToys - has already said they're unlikely to get Skywarp.

    So yeah, happy with what I paid.....

    .....except that it looks like he's currently a guest of HM's Customs and Excise generating me a nice customs charge and clearance fee!

    He's here and without customs intervention!

    Thanks to Skywarp's arrival, I've now found the location of the codes for him and the Firestormers!

    It's on the front of the box, with the other Blacklight text I mentioned, and runs diagonally from bottom left towards top right.

    That's the good news. The bad news is I can't clearly read either without a Blacklight.

    I ordered from landyrock, no bad reviews so I’m hoping they’re not a scammer

    Anyone know where it can be bought online without having the price jacked up? Otherwise I can wait for Prime Day.

    Does not seem like it yet. Just Taiwanese sellers.

    Dang, I was hoping if enough people chirped about the color, Hasbro would darken the black. This is truly the first disappointing Siege figure - but I'll buy him anyway because Seekers.

    *Niche triggered*

    OH MY GOSH! THEY HAVE TERROR-DAXTYL! I MUST HAVE HIM!

    Oh gosh, I really don't NEED a Skywarp figure. Am perfectly happy with Siege Soundwave and Siege Ravage and Laserbeak. BUT, they just had to put in a mini dino-former in there didn't they? Darn you Hasbro. You take all my money. LOL.

    Also glad the targetmasters are getting more love.

    I’m almost certain that this and the g2 Sideswipe set will go up on Prime day.
