Skywarp began life as a Diaclone "Jet Robo", but unlike team-mates Starscream and Thundercracker, which whom he shares his mold, his distinctive black-and-purple deco did not originate in that line. Skywarp transforms into an F-15 Eagle fighter jet, by a process which essentially involves removing and reattaching most of his plane parts. Though it is possible to do so without removing all of them, this rather piecemeal design and the fact that neither mode uses all his parts means it can be quite difficult to find an intact original Skywarp on the secondary market.
Released in 1984, Skywarp was one of the original three Seekers. The figure comes complete with both wings, both vertical tail fins (large hole), both horizontal rudders (large pegs & open tips), two missile launchers, two long missiles, two short missiles, both fists (double tab), and landing gear. The right wing could use new Decepticon logo, it may appear as damage in the photo, but rest assured it is only sticker residue.
This is the Japanese boxed version, the box shows some signs of wear from age/storage, and the "points" have been cut out, but for a piece of cardboard that's 30+ years old it's in pretty good shape. The box and Styrofoam are both present, however it is lacking the paperwork.
To find a Japanese boxed version of this figure in the United States is extremely rare, so don't miss your chance to own this figure and box at a great price.
