Long shot indeed.

I had a go at this auction, but prices are exorbitant :/

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/201599747427

I was really hoping for an announcement from TT at the Tokyo Toy Show for Skywarp, alas that seems unlikely

I saw that one. But I don't think he ships internationally anyway?

Lol whoops. Good thing I didn't win, though I have a cousin in New York.

I think it's a case of waiting patiently or pillaging your wallet. I have a Hasbro Skywarp which keeps me content for now.

That auction ended at $AU 550.

Jesus Christ, good luck if anyone sells it to you for a reasonable price. Can someon remind me again why Skywarp turned out to be so rare? How many pieces were released?

Edit: From TFWiki: "Skywarp was only released in China via Hasbro Asia under the TakaraTomy label; marking the second time an original TakaraTomy Masterpiece toy wasn't released for the Japanese market"

I guess there was low demand initially, leading to a low production run and no subsequent reissue/re-release.

It'll get a proper reissue one day. Much like MP-08X and well... every single one of them, really.

Well my budget was around $400au (shipped?) lol

So yeah I'm willing to pay a bit more than the rrp. Dunno bout 550 though.
