    Classics mold and TFTM Seeker mold are the most recent that comes to mind.

    LOL take it easy dudes, he was just announced today.

    Stop trolling yourselves, he could as easily be a hasbro repaint down the road.

    Yeah I may be getting the Takara version instead as I'm sure his paint apps will be MUCH better than whatever Hasbro decides to put on him.

    He doesn't look that bad. Of course, that IS the prototype and hasbro will skimp on some of the paint, but he doesn't look all that bad. And who knows? reprolabels might make a set for him.

    GDO isn't Takara but Hasbro Asia/China. Doesn't apply in this case.

    Come on Hasbro. Please release let their be an American release of Skywarp.

    I don't get why Hasbro can only have one of those two (Thundercracker and Skywarp) Is it so difficult to have both of the same shelf.

    thats kuul, like i said, didnt kno if it wuz just me or not...it usually is. before tfp, i just bought what i thought looked cool, but i have am smokescreen ordered and that will complete my onscreen charcter/tfp shelf and before this, i hardly ever ordered anything online. i find it more of a hassle personally rather than regularly goin to the store and coming across a nice figure, so i guess my appreciation for the show made me want to get all the figs...guess ill not listen to myself next time i have a good idear. by the way, since im here, does anyone kno if tfp is gonna have an insecticon/hardshell toy?
