Seibertron member kirbenvost has wrote a toy review for the recently release Hasbro Version Transformers Masterpiece Skywarp.
Check out his view below and make your decision whether this beauty will be part of your collection!


Well, there doesn't seem to be a thread yet as only a few lucky Canucks (like me) and those over the pond have seen him, so I'm making one.

I don't have Takara's Skywarp (only Greenscream) to compare to, so I'm not going to go into a detailed comparison like that, but I'll give a general overview, and observations you might not be able to tell from pics, or general things to know. I can take a few pics later if people want.

First of all, it's a very nice looking, well-painted figure, if you are able to take the time to compare a few in-store before buying. I found minor paint flaws on a few, but nothing major. The packaging is nice, pretty similar to the Hasbro Starscream from what I've seen, though I don't have it to compare to.

His eyes are yellow, which is a big difference from the Takara version. He's got a very G1 paint scheme, as seen from previous pictures. The stripes are all very well-painted. There is also no sticker sheet like the Takara one, so what you see is what you get, which is fine with me, because he's got some of the nice details from the G1 version, the red on the intakes, and a little on the hip pieces. Also, the nametag on the stand is painted on, whereas it was a sticker for the Takara MPs, if I recall correctly. The Decepticon symbol on the stand is properly chromed, as it should be. The little minifigure (forgot his name) is completely unpainted, but no one cares about him anyway. One nice detail I noticed was some gunmetal detail on the weapons, as well as some colored stripes on the missiles. Just a nice little detail they didn't have to put on, but they did anyway.

Edit: A couple more notes on the paint job - the rocket launchers behind his chest fans are not painted in detail like the Takara versions. However, since his whole chest is painted silver, this doesn't look as bad as on the US Starscream where it's all red. Also, the fans on the chest are also not painted gunmetal, but again, it looks fine because it's silver.

There are two big things people should know: His faces are the same as MP Starscream's, not Skywarp's. So he really is a repaint of Starscream. That's fine with me, but might bother some. Another, perhaps bigger thing, is the shade of purple used for his hands/forearms and leg detail is the same slightly-transleucent, pinkish purple from the Classics version, NOT the G1-esque lilac. This may bother a lot of people. For me, it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make for a more affordable Skywarp.

One more slight flaw is some of the joints are a bit loose, especialy the rear thrusters which become his heels in robot mode. The ball joints are not very tight, and this could cause problems standing the figure. But it's a pretty back-heavy figure that takes a lot of work to stand up, so I'm betting most people would use the stand anyway. The fingers are also a bit loose on mine, but they still stay in place, so that's fine with me. I did notice it's a lot easier to get the landing gear out, which is a good thing. Otherwise, the joints on mine are pretty good, a couple are even tighter than on my MP-03. No stress marks so far, though I've only Transformed him twice.

I'm not familiar with/can't remember the assembly flaw that happened with MP Thundercracker's chest, but this Skywarp looks normal to me. Haha, hopefully it's not one of those "once you see it, you can't unsee it" things.

So, I guess that's it. If you're trying to decide between the Hasbro and Takara versions, I would recommend this: If you can manage to find the Hasbro figure at retail, get it, unless the purple really bothers you. It's a great-looking, quality figure, for a great price, with only a few very minor flaws. However, if you have to buy online, the cost is going to be almost as much as the Takara version, judging by scalper and aftermarket prices so far. So I'd think carefully about which version appeals more to you, and make your decision based on that.

Alright guys, several hours later (including HK-Skywarp missile retrieval from under the fridge, and a dinner break), here's the goods. Sorry for the cut off images, I'm too tired tonight to do any more. Right click and select "view image" for the whole pics.

Some robot mode pics, note lack of detailing on arms. Different from Takara MP, but G1 accurate:

Looks damn sexy. I may be a minority, but I love the shade of purple. The lilac looks too washed out compared to this orchid-y color. The stripes are extremely well done.

Thank you for the pictures, it's very helpful.

I'm glad that people who don't have the opportunity to import Masterpiece figures are getting a shot at this guy. I'm also glad that Hasbro is continuing to use that vibrant purple as opposed to the lilac purple. The figure looks good. The yellow eyes are cool.

That being said, it becomes kind of obvious where the additional $40 goes for a Takara release. It's really cool that a version is available for $60, but having owned the Takara version for two years now, I can see all the little differences.

Where if I had not owned the Japanese version, I would probably never have noticed these differences between the two, the fact that I have had this toy and really do like it makes those differences glaring.

Without attempting to even pretend sounding elitist, even if Hasbro continues to release MP figures stateside, I think I will continue to import. With Masterpiece style toys, style and detail count as much for me as mold and character. It's cool that this is available, but this pricing discount isn't worth the cost in detail to me.

I've always preferred them "right side up" in robot mode. They just look a lot better, since most of figures spend most of the time in robot mode. I guess I'm just not nostalgic enough.

It's kind of a cartoon/real life accuracy thing for me. They were always upside down on the cartoon and also, in real life, the symbols would be that way so they are right side up if you're approaching the plane from behind. In the long run, it doesn't really matter. Still a great looking figure!

I have the Takara MP Skywarp and probably wont be picking this baby up since Ive already gotten one version of him. But I think Hasbro did a commendable job with this baby.

But I seriously think kirbenvost did a good job with this review: I love the commentary that came along with the good quality pics and I really appreciate that he was straight up about the good, bad and ugly of this version of Skywarp. No Hasbro boot-licking... just the facts. Great job there kirbenvost! :APPLAUSE:

Seibertron.com could really do with more good reviewers like you guys.

Is this the argos, UK version/Hasbro ? If so I may change my mind and keep greenscream. Even though hes fragile I expect quality and good paint apps, but skywarp dos'nt have as many as I would like for £60.

Nice photo's :D

The insignia would drive me nuts on this thing. I might not mind as much if they were at least consistent, but that Starscream's were correct, but then they do Skywarp's the opposite = teh suckz. Glad I already have the Takara version.

Really hope they do them the right way on Thundercracker if they release him because I don't have the Takara of that one and would buy a Hasbro one.

As long as they get Thundercracker's chest correct, they could leave off the symbols for all I care :grin:

If they had to do one backwards between the chest and the insignia, I'd actually take the chest. That would be a little less noticeable to me.

In the cartoon the symbols position were inconsistent. See for example episode "Starscream's Brigade", where the decepticon insignia is right side up on his wings.

Haha, well you could, but most of the stores sold out in 2 days, which is why I was extremely lucky to find one in store. :shock: We're all hoping for a restock, and 1 store has so far, but in very limited numbers. Considering how fast they're going, Walmart would be crazy to not get more in.

Yeah, after going through the MP galleries on the site, it is very obvious that there are many more paint apps on the Takara versions. I certainly don't regret waiting for the Hasbro version though, I'm very happy with it. But if I hadn't been able to get it in store, and had to make a choice between Hasbros for $80 online, or Takara's for $90 or $100, I'd probably go for the import.

So it is cartoon accurate then!

I know they effed it up in the 'toon all the time, but it doesn't have to carry over to the so called "Masterpiece" line. They also consistently drew the symbols all sloppy-ass on the characters too...doesn't mean I want them done that way on my figs.

I swear, I am so addicted to this plastic crack. I have all four existing MP screamers (Takara Screemer, Takara Skywarp, Hasbro Screemer, and Takara Thundercracker) and yet I STILL want to buy this. Is it better than the MP Skywarp I already have? Heck no, but there is definitely a rush I experience whenever I buy a Transformer, especially one in the MP/Leader class.

Must resist...

Great review Kirbenvost :APPLAUSE:

I have been fortunate enough to pick one of these up here in the UK, but hadn't noticed that it was a straight re-paint of the MP-Screamer mold. Good spot!

Does anyone know if there are any comparsion pics anywhere with the Takara one? I'm curious to see how they look side-by-side.

A standard Alternator will come up to his shoulders. The seeker molds aren't that big, but they look better when attached to their flight mode stands.

They're all on flight stands here:

Sorry, I am new here - the release date on Skywarp was 11/1/09, yes? I have had no luck finding him in California Wal-Marts at all. Am I being too paranoid thinking scalpers/Black Friday release is in effect?

This Skywarp is super-important to me because it marks the end of my Transformers collection. And I can't justify the cost of the Takara one. Personal limitations.

EDIT: I just saw a Takara MP Skywarp go for $60 on eBay, went up and out just as I was posting. :/

Yeah, not to worry if you guys are in the US, MP Skywarp has only been sighted in Canada and the UK so far, so US fans still have a good chance of getting him when he's released there. :) Further good news is, there have been limited restocks in Canada as well, so if you miss out the first day there's still a chance of getting him.

I just hope I see this sucker in the store. I'm not going to hold my breathe though. We'll see. I haven't yet purchased a MP TF, so I like the lower price point. If I lie this I will buy more. Maybe I should hope that I don't see him.......It would be nice to save that money.
