who here thinks skywarp looks like he needs to take a serious dump LoL. Im just happy to have MP Megatron skinny legs n all, although a fat leg kit would be the cherry ontop. I set him up in gun mode on a acrylic gun stand i got at a gun show a few years back, on my nitestand next to some joes. a perfect view just before i knock out to insure dreams of some of my favorite things.

MP-2 - Ultra Magnus
MP-3 - Starscream (not G1 paint scheme; greenish blue color)
MP-4 - ReReleased Optimus Prime with Trailer
MP-5 - Megatron
MP-6 - Skywarp
Masterpiece Walmart Exlusive Starscream with G1 paint scheme at half the price of MP-3
MP-7 - Thundercracker (release sometime this month)
MP-8 - Grimlock (release in March '09)
I came in the game late, when skywarp was released and i got stuck paying high prices for the others. Had i known they were going to release them again, i would have waited.
You won't be disappointed with Skywarp, that figure is awesome.

If you're a fan of the 25th Joe line, you probably will be a fan of the MP Transformer line. They're basically the same concept, take the old school favorites, and make them with today's standards.
Except the TFs will run you anywhere from $100-$300 each, depending on which you get, and where you get it.
Prime is the ultimate MP figure, but I really really recommend Megatron, despite gripes about the scrawny legs. JUSTiTOYS makes an add-on kit with the stock/silencer and leg attachments that are metal, to help the weight/standing problem.
I totally skipped on Ultra Magnus, unless Hasbro decides to release a trailer, which I seriously doubt.
The Seeker jets are all really nice, a lot of people really disliked the QC on him, and the fact that he has tail fins hanging from his waist (the original design WAS better, sadly) but I can live with it. They're detachable, and fit on the legs, which look okay posed.
Skywarp is the best Seeker released yet. I feel that the colors are more elegant, the plastic seems sturdier, and overall I enjoyed him far over either Starscream release.
The first Starscream was a tad too... green, no idea why they went with that. The Hasbro version is cartoon-correct, but something about the color of plastic and the paint apps feels cheap. While the Takara Starscream is the wrong colors, I still feel that the paint apps on him are much better design-wise.
All 3 Jets have different faces, with the same standard "blank" look on the reverse side. I admit, Skywarp's looks constipated. Starscream's smirk is the best. Thundercracker is slated to have some sort of grimace look, similar to Skywarps, showing teeth (weird, I know).
Get them all if you can, I have MP 3-6, and have both 7 and 8 on preorder. I'm really only missing the single-bot Prime (sans trailer) and the "Ultra Magnus" white repaint, which I didn't warrant important enough to get.

From what I remember reading about green-scream he was colored that way because the designer/engineer of the mold wanted a real world jet look and color scheme over a toon accurate look.Once Tak/tommy recieved the fan reaction they and Hasblow soon released a toon accurate version.Skywarp and T-cracker(out this month)have all been toon accurate since the mistake.BTW all the seekers come with a changeable face,mini Dr.Archevil pilot,G1 type stickers,rockets,Null Ray laser cannons(unique to seekers),and a really cool display stand.The packaging from Tak/Tommy is top notch and the figs IMO are really well built considering their size.Some folks complain that there is not enough diecast used for an MP but with the cost of metals skyrocketing I am glad they are mostly plastic lol,$100.00 is already too much to pay.
I highly recommend these to anyone that is a fan of G1 transformers. I have two of each MP,one to display in box another to display out.I even have another white prime on pre-order from BBTS(only one I had just 1 of)in hopes that Tak/Tommy or someone from the secondary market(like Fans Project)makes an Armour upgrade for UM that is affordable.I think the MP line is the best thing since sliced bread and I will buy every single one they produce.If you love Transformers and are on the fence about buying these I suggest you get them now,the price is only going up on the black market called evil-bay.
