eHobby has posted pictures of the upcoming G1 Transformers Encore series. These are slated to be released in August. eHobby also has information about the upcoming MP-06 Skywarp figure.

Convoy (Optimus Prime)


Megatron


Soundwave


Starscream


Skywarp

(Japanese translated by Seibertron.com): Skywarp will contain all of the alt mode accessories and detail as MP Starscream. The plane will be all black. Skywarp will feature two new face molds: “High Pressure Face” and “Gnashing Teeth Face”. Skywarp will also feature some clear parts and include a pilot, sidewinder missiles, display base, and two sidearm cannons.

It is rumored that Skywarp will have more die-cast than Starscream. According to the translation “Fans will be proud of the heavy appearance and strength due to die-cast use.”

Translated by Seibertron? As in Ryan himself? Does Ryan read Japanese?

That Skyloom link is a terrific read.

How will he have more die-cast than Starscream?

Sounds good. Hopefully quality control will be better and the pilot will be detailed.

The use of die cast sounds promising.

So Skywarp will have the same accessories...that kinda of stinks. I really wanted something to make him unique besides the face...I mean if they are going to be doing this 4 more times...lets make them feel different.

I actually can't think of any accessories that would be unqique to Skywarp or Thundercracker off the top of my head.

Maybe some MP Energon Cubes? ;-)

There must be some footage of Skywarp holding something interesting in his hand...

Anyways; I'm going to pass on him and go for the Encore line. Love to get my hands on these 4 guys and already preordered the set at BBTS...

Been a LONG...LONG time since G1 Prime was mine...

Sorry for the confusion. I translated this from the original page (I speak Japanese) - http://www.e-hobby.co.jp/cgi-bin/omc?port=33301&req=PRODUCT&code=mp6. In addition to the translation, I posted a Google translated page (above) as well so people could check it out in English. (The Google translated pages are not as reliable though).

I was trying to say translated by "Seibertron.com" so you know that this information was translated by us and not another source. Darn typos :P (corrected now)

I forgot to mention that there will be new stickers for Skywarp.

Still not overly impressed by those over done reissues.

The news on MP Skywarp is good. I'm glad that they are changing the mold for the face and adding more die cast! I like the black color they've mentioned, I just hope they highlight it with purple and white, to make it more like Skywarp.

That's understandable. I had calculated that if not Ryan then you meant the site anyway. Those Google translations are never very good, in my opinion, but they are an interesting read!

Oh, I don't know, I think I prefer the translation I see on their site:

[sutasukurimu] in the head, to the aircraft it becomes deformed the important character of the jet remaining overnight unit which MP conversion!!
The sky loom of the jet remaining overnight unit appeared in the masterpiece series.
Modelling two types of sky loom peculiar high pressure face and face which gnashes teeth anew
It became the color ring which reproduced animation faithfully, centers sky loom peculiar black.
With jet mode gimmick of prejudice in full load, canopy opening and closing, reappearance and pilot of internal mechanic
Figure (Dr. [akabiru]) embarkation possibility and flap of main wing 4 place mobility, nose cone opening and closing,
The riding gear of 3 places to develop, as for the air brake reappearance of the expectation surface and left and right exhaust nozzle mobility possibility
The vectored nozzle it is the item of full load such as reappearance.
Furthermore you are proud of heavy appearance and the strength due to die-cast use, also new clear decare has belonged.

I could not agree more, a different pilot would be nice too, but I can't recall SkyWarp ever flying anybody? maybe I can find one of those mini mincroman pilots to place inside of him.

I hopeif they eventual release Dirge, he comes with a Sean Berger, that would be cool.

Sadly in all this however, I can't seem to bring up the pictures though. I's ok though I saw a thumb over at Tformers, it was tiny but got the job done. If these are clearer, well that'll just be a treat for later than!
