Well at least TT knows how to take advantage of the ko battle tankers that have been flooding the market.

Hehe, yes. It seems that Takara understands the principle of supply and demand. They did the same with Henkei Hot Rod/Rodimus a while back due to the existing demand (thank you FansProject :D!) and now they've done a second run of G2 Laser Prime from United.

Hasbro needs to pay attention to the actions and market reactions of their collector-centric overseas counterpart, yeesssss! :D

That 2-pack was Hasbro-only. The only Skywarp I know of was Henkei, which sadly had no re-release (great figure though, although the Hasbro version has its merits as well :) ).

It doesn't need a re-release, it was made to order. The pre-order counter only went up to 99999, which was reached within 2 days, and more where pre-ordered after that plus extras. There are more Henkei Skywarps and Thundercrackers than Henkei Starscreams. And Starscream was the mass released one. :lol:

8-} henkei Starscream is much more rare than the Ganbo(iirc) exclusives Sw and TC? Irony indeed! Good thing I managed to snag one waaaay back. If only Hasbro releases Sw as a single fig then all my seekers would be complete(except for Acidstorm)
