    Sorry he’s pure amazon unless someone got the pack for the repainted battle masters and is selling skywarp on ebay
    Which is very unlikely

    skywarp and thundercracker\'s colors just fits this mold much better than starscreams, I can\'t seem to put a reason with it. I mean I am getting them all but even the 3 pack seekers as monotone as those colors are they fit the mold better than the screamer

    Honestly it’s probably because Starscream has so much grey, if it had been white like the cartoon, i bet it would have looked way better

    I think you imght be right. I have the four seekers so far and getting red wing i think at the end of this month or early next month and even he looks better just being red. Yeah it's just off but you might be onto something

    Still not available on amazon.ca which is odd since Alphastrike is.

    Same for France, we have orders/ preorder for alpha strike and the impactor 3 pack and no Skywarp. It depends of the country.

    Hopefully they give us a cel shaded cartoon Starscream like with the optimus and megatron, he’d look gorgeous with the red white and blue, Lord Starscream the all American Decepticon

    Does anybody else absolutely hate the colors on this Skywarp figure?

    Thankfully his mold is super easy to disassemble. I took mine completely apart & I'm getting ready to repaint it in the correct Skywarp colors. Skywarp was my very first Transformer back in 84 & I can't stand how they constantly fuck his colors up. If they molded his head in black then why would they mold the rest of him in dark gray? I can't wrap my head around this. And why would they use a really dark purple that barely shows up against black/dark gray when all they had to use is the usual/normal lighter Decepticon violet?

    I have the same problem with Unite Warriors Motormaster & 30th Soundblaster. Just use fuckin black plastic! Why is this even an issue??? For those of you that don't know, the crappy brown plastic they used on UW Motormaster shatters at the waist. A problem that could have easily been avoided if they had simply used black plastic.:mad:

    As his colours are somewhat inspired by the F-15 Prototype I guess the Red, White & Blue thing is deliberate. even if the final toy is grey usually.

    I've been wondering if they plan to do other in cell shading too - such as Shockwave, (sold without his accessories) or Soundwave or Starscream. I can see the effect suiting Sideswipe too - if they want to do it on Deluxes too.

    Far from it I think he looks great - the silver nose makes him evoke Armada Skywarp and gives him just that little uniqueness in the colour mapping - so like Red Wing I think that works - the lack of variety can make things look a little bland like it does with the Rainmakers. The deep purple is similar to Classics Skywarp. I'm not saying i'f object at all if they'd gone with a bluer purple and pure black - but rather than his normal colours - which seems to be a lot of people's fave 'seeker' deco , this give him a sort of Night Attack warrior or Stealth plane look to me.

    Already put in my order just to get my hands on Terror-Daxtyl. The nice Skywarp figure is a bonus.

    Woah mate that is just throwing money in the bin and then lighting it. Skywarp is anthracite true. And if you don't like it. That is fine. Yet to buy this set to then repaint him? Id say buy another Screamer and paint him black.
    I really don't see a reason to specifically get Skywarp just to repaint him.

    Confirming at least that amazon will not ship this one in some countries, others shops may have it

    Gawd I love this set, Skywarp was also my first Real Transformer in a box lol. He currently wearing Screamers cape I custoem made for him and the colors are a perfect match. Skywarp is royalty in my toy verse story world as the first Transformer on earth and I was a 'fast mover " fanboy at that age so his alt mode was a real geek out.

    I'm not usually bothered by the battle damage but the stuff on his wings is slightly overdone, my only minor nit with this whole set
