It still baffles me that Takara would produce a "Masterpiece" Skywarp with those weird shoulder, wrist, and "pectoral" pin stripes, making him far less screen accurate, especially now that the Masterpiece line is catering to that preference more than ever before. I know that's how it ended up for the Hasbro Asia market release a few years ago, but as this is being released only in Takara Tomy's home market, Japan, you'd think they could make a few changes to the paint apps? That's really all it would take.

Think of this as like Takara's release of Hasbro's MP Acid Storm. A straight reissue for the main Japanese market of a foreign market figure.

Otherwise, Takara's release of Acid Storm ought to have been recolored as, well... this:

Acid Storm is quite a D-List character, though. Skywarp is an established A-lister, part of an iconic trio of characters. It's annoying that he doesn't "match" his mold-mates Starscream and Thundercracker. Heck, Takara's Sunstorm does a better job of conforming to the "seeker trio" paint scheme. That's just weird.

Takara's Sunstorm is a good example to bring up since, cartoon-wise, he's just as obscure in the show as Acid Storm was (arguably even moreso since Sunstorm was only seen in one shot of the one episode he showed up in, while Acid Storm got more screentime with multiple shots in the episode he appeared in) and yet received a deco that was very beholden to his single onscreen appearance:
Image

Sunstorm may be more known in external media, but strictly speaking of the cartoon, he's even lower tier than Acid Storm, Nova Storm, and Ion Storm.

Which just begs the question even more: What the hell, Takara Tomy!? Give poor Skywarp a break!

Dont need to . Turns out Hasbro Asia is making a simultaneous reissue of their skywarp and you can get it at BBTS and TFSource for 189$ (so 10$ cheaper than initially).

Differences Between Takara and Hasbro MP11 SW Masterpiece Skywarp

Postby william-james88 » Fri Jan 06, 2017 10:20 pm

This is surprising, it turns out there is an actual difference between the most recent release of Masterpiece Skywarp and the Hasbro Asia release of two years ago. It was taken for granted that the previous Hasbro Asia release was simply the Takara release to be sold outside Japan but that is not the case. Fellow Seibertronian Powered Convoy, (Randy of the Allspark) has done a write up of the differences between the recent release and the one from two years ago, and seperated them between what he finds better, worse and inconsequential. This means that there is indeed a distinction between the Takara version of MP 11 Skywarp and the Hasbro version, even though North America has yet to see this toy released. How do you completionists feel? Were you aware? Does it look like one of them is sporting the movie Decepticon symbol? Let us know.

The Good:
- Black painted biceps and knees are now black plastic
- Chest fans are considerably darker
- Joints are really nice and tight (unlike Thrust and his wobbly waist), though this isn’t any better than the original
- Heel spurs, and jet exhausts are darker

The Bad:
- Torso area behind his biceps is no longer painted silver, just silver plastic
- Bottom of shoulder pylons are considerably darker

The Indifferent:
- Purple is much warmer purple
- Symbols are lighter
- Chest missiles are darker
- Silver feet detail is darker
- Buttocks is black plastic
- Yellow wing paint is lighter and does not extend past molded detail
- Window is lighter but less clear

So really nice. I do like the old purple better, though this purple is similar to what was on the Henkei (not exactly the same). The biceps and knees being cast in black rather than painted is a definite improvement. As they are kind of distracting on the original. The lack of paint on the chest section is disappointing.

So it’s a matter of how much the change in purple bothers you (if it does at all) and how much the lack of paint (good for the biceps & knees, bad for the torso section) matter to you.

Looking at them from here, the black plastic biceps and darker chest fans are winning me over right now. You can’t lose with either of them. The ideal for me would be the 2016 version with the 2014 purple and painted chest part.

In all the pics the China 2014 version is on the left, the Japanese 2016 on the right.

And Shajaki, while I was hoping you would respond, I think you aren't the only cpmpletionist and I am always hoping to find others who can share their hopes and frustrations. But you are by far the most vocal, and I am thankful.

Meh, if I ever get the space for an MP collection I'm gonna either wait for the MakeToys Seekers or wait even longer for a Seeker 3.0 mold. The existing MP Seeker mold (which is basically MP-03 with lipstick) is kinda dated engineering wise, and AFAIK mold degradation is seriously setting in on the poor thing. If I were to get either version though I'd go for MP-03, because A: less degradation and B: better jet mode (I am a bit of a jet nerd).

Seriously though we need a totally new MP Seeker mold. This one sucks.

I have always thought similarly, but I do want to let you know that there isn't mold degradation per se. The latest I bought was the Hasbro Starscream from last year and it was really nice and tight.

That's because they did fixed the issues.

I still wake up at night, in sweat, shaking from the PTSD my 300$ Takara MP-11 gave me.

Dat price, dat cheap plastics all over, that loose chest, those perma-attached null rays, the fact that I sold my excellent G1 colored MP-03 for this and so on and so forth...

Hmm, interesting. I've heard mixed stories- IIRC a lot of Skywarps had wonky wings and floppy fuselages and the Coneheads have been absolute messes for some people (whilst inexplicably fine for others). I suspect a mixture of luck-of-the-draw QC, some mold degradation (it's been used so often it must have SOME wear and tear on it) and factory shenanigans are at fault.

I just dread a theoretical MP-11 based Ghost Starscream. Overused mold, oddly iffy QC AND clear plastic? Oh joy!

I believe takara can do a better seeker mold,but at this point,id rather they just finish the seekers already.
A whole new seeker mold would have been great..if they have made it mp-11.
I feel starscream is popular enough to warrant a new mold. Not just a retool of mp-3 that didnt fix that chest problem.
