Skywarp - Heroes of Cybertron - Figure

Guess who’s back. Back again. Skywarp’s back! Tell a friend.

Packaging
You can’t really get much more retro looking that the Heroes of Cybertron packaging. Everything is reminiscent of the original line. From the original Transformers logo to the old Decepticon symbol to the battle art on the back of the card, the Heroes of Cybertron line looks great. The bubble is curved and Skywarp sits to the left while his tech specs trading card sits to the right. The only gripe I can think of is that the character art is based on the actual toy rather than the Armada line. Still, that’s only a minor gripe.

Tech Specs
The card itself features the Heroes of Cybertron logo on the front along with a drawing based of the figure as well as the character name, allegiance and function. The back holds the motto, bio and tech specs.

Motto: "Strike when the enemy isn’t looking."

Skywarp is the sneakiest of the Decepticons. Enjoys playing cruel pranks on fellow Decepticons. Like to suddenly appear out of nowhere to attack Autobots through his ability to instantly teleport up to 2.5 miles. Not very smart and sometimes sarcastic. Misguided without the supervision of Megatron. Switches allegiances quickly, following whichever Decepticon is in control. Carries heat-seeking missiles and variable-caliber machine guns. High-speed flier, reaching 1500 MPH as he searches for unsuspecting prey on the ground below.

It’s interesting to note that the word "firepower" is back instead of the more recent "fireblast." Perhaps because this is a line aimed at collectors instead of the mass market, Hasbro changed it back. Who knows?

Figure
Skywarp is made up entirely of a clear red plastic. While I suspected as much since his eyes feature light piping, after removing some of his parts, I discovered that everything was clear red. Needless to say, the paint job is very well done, right down to the upside-down Decepticon insignia on his wings. There is no doubting this is the original Skywarp. Due to his construction, Skywarp rotates at the neck, shoulders, wrists, and knees. His wings and guns are also removable. It may be the plastic used, but Skywarp’s joint move a lot smoother than those of my SCF Starscream. They don’t seem to stick as much.

Overall
If you’re a fan of Skywarp (like me) or simply could not afford the Skywarp SCF figure from Japan (like me), this is a must have toy. He represents the original very well. However, if you don’t like Transformers that don’t transform, I suggest staying away from the entire Heroes of Cybertron line.
