Skyward being made purple with gray accents is ass. They took the seeker with the best deco and made it the worst. But look at the bright side...a half-assed color scheme is perfect for a half-assed mold.

I'm just glad that we'll get all the 3 seekers anyway. And good thing they didn't remold the face/wings like in Armada (Why hasbro, that seeker mold was great for that time).
Will be getting him from a local import shop.

MP Blaster needs to be released. As much as i appreciate the release of SoundBlaster and Blaster from this mold, it's not really the aesthetic for me.
I would like something less "pointy" and angular.

This is the first representation of Blaster I've actually considered ordering, but I simply can't get past the fact it's a Soundwave remold. Maybe he's a touch too big as well. :-?

My collection's lack of a Skywarp has been bugging me since I discovered the Breakaway redeco this morning. :BANG_HEAD:

On that note, if anyone has a Skywarp-looking fellow they want to unload, swing me a PM (and check my post in the Wants thread). Thanks. :)

I do wish this Skywarp had more black than grey though, I feel like that may have come out a bit better.

Japanese toy blogger Alfres 2010 has posted a gallery of Takara Tomy's recently released Transformers Generations TG-17 Blaster with Steeljaw. The figures feature the line's signature metallic paint applications compared to their Hasbro counterparts. We've mirrored a few of his images below, including some comparison shots with domestic versions. The full gallery can be found be clicking here.

Not the metallic finish I had in mind. But looks great ! My Hasbro Blaster was customized to Twincast, so the differences on this version make it better to have than buying another Hasbro version. Cant wait to get him along with the KFC cassettes and Perfect Effect Minions. The discs...well ill find a spot for them somewhere as cybertronian hockey pucks... ;)

Man, this is one sharp Takara version! I like the Hasbro one but this looks pretty amazing in comparison. Still, for budget reasons I'm sticking with Hasbro.

I actually think I like the Hasbro version's bright red better than the Takara version. Take the upper body from the Hasbro one and give it Takara's legs and then I think that'd be the perfect Blaster. Also, I'm kind of surprised this one's getting so much love since he's not that different. There have been many toys that I thought Takara made much more significant improvements to over the years.

Can someone please tell me, why are Takara toys more expensive than the Hasbros? Is it cheaper to purchase directly from the Takara website? Or is metallic paint worth that much more?

Thanks to it's authorAndrew "Hydra" Hall we have the bio for Takara Tomy's Transformers Generations Deluxe Skywarp. Check out the bio below, which he posted earlier on fellow Transformers fansite, The Allspark.

Hydra wrote:When his rare ability to teleport gained him membership among the Seeker battalion, Skywarp was anticipated as a young and capable new recruit. Unfortunately, his deceitful personality proved to be a character flaw, and his skills would be used only for idle trickery and practical jokes. By appearing suddenly and attacking his opponents from behind, he should be able to upstage even Starscream in combat ability, but he soon loses interest when not under the command of Megatron. In order to improve his concentration and sense of responsibility, he has been ordered to complete a training regimen in Circuit-Su.

A lot of it is the cost of importing (and the exchange rate), but Takara charges more to begin with, too.
