    Skywarp - Starscream repaint

    Can't say I'm wildly keen on the Voyager Decepticon jet, purely from the point of view of seeing the Strike Planes show up regularly in various scales. Yes I know 2+ repaints of every Strscream probably keep the line in business. I've got some friends who think Voyager forms of their Earth modes would be nice, but what I'm after are the 1984 colours for all three on CW Starscream.

    Null rays are rather lose on the arms, holes slightly too big if trying to attach Bttlemasters there was anything to go by.

    Yes, I know there's no pictures of Skywarp's jet yet! I'm tired and need a sleep!

    Jet and Tank mode

    What you mean it's *NOT* meant to pop apart like that?

    Had Starscream two months, first time I've transformed him, which is probably a measure of what I though.

    Terror-Daxtyl - Double Edged Firestrike Axe - Pteraxodon repaint

    One of my favourite Battlemasters, glad to see him get a second go.

    Would like one in Swoop colours - both sets - though!

    Gun mode was VERY tight in the fists, had a fist pop off rather scarily but attached again easily.

    Decepticon Fracas - Twin-Barreled LT Laser - Firedrive repaint

    image.jpeg

    I prefer the inverted colours he has on the box which make him look much more different to Firedrive

    That works well. Now to decide which one gets him long term!

    Shrute aka Hairsplitter - Incendiary Range Cannon - Aimless repaint

    Now this is seemingly aimed at being one of Spinister's Targetmasters - see Siege Astrotrain, Apeface, Spinister and Crosshairs revealed! if you didn't know Spinister was en route. Obviously he's not out yet so I can't get a photo of them together.

    Love the blue blast effects but I can' help but ask why aren't they orange to match the rest of the set?

    Triple Threat Skywarp!

    My set came from Taiwan via eBay.

    How is Skywarp's chest panel compared to Starscream? Does it pop off as much?

    Pops off nice and easily so it won't break.

    These battle masters are turning out to be paint a figures. Better than nothing but anyone eager to get some closer to the originals may want to cough up some cash on Takara Legends.

    Awesome, thanks.

    I'm compiling a list of weapon mode names from Siege. Planning to post a thread for them. =3

    Thought, as in
    * there's listings for them on some Amazon websites
    * prime day is next week
    * prime day had TF exclusives last year.
    See the Skywarp packaging thread and the Sideswipe boxset thread for further discussion of this assumption

    That's interesting. For whatever reason neither Amazon.com nor Amazon.ca are showing any listing of it yet, but have made listings for other prime day stuff (including apparently making the Greenlight pack look like a Prime Day style exclusive.

    I'm hoping this is going to be like with PotP Nemesis Prime last year where it ends up being readily available after the initial run sells out in a panic. I thought I missed out on that one only to see them come back in stock a couple of weeks later and stay available (on amazon.ca at least) for several months afterwards.
