I bet it's a Sunstorm repaint or something. That would make sense for a preview/limited release.

I'd like to see more of this from 3rd Parties... I've always loved the look of gray prototypes.

It's a neat concept, but it's not one I like all that much. Just not enough vibrancy or contrast for my tastes. I'll happily pass on this and wait for the final releases.

This is great news for customizers who want to do their own color schemes (or even characters, Rainmakers anyone? Slipstream?).

I always liked the Robot of this piece but the vehicle mode is just...odd..

The no paint app version would be a great idea for a customizer..Be a chance to make that obscure seeker you always wanted..

That was my attitude towards it as well. Once I learned it was black & white I was out. I'd have even bought an acid storm or purple clone deco'd one.

Aww... I was refreshing Age three and up since sunday and I still missed it. I don't want the regular seeker colors so I'm pretty much done with this figure, I guess.

This release actually makes perfect sense to me; do a small, unpainted run to work the bugs out before they start with the mass release decos. It's like their yellow Giant release.

And you've got to think that if the main three Seekers are successes, they'll do a Sunstorm deco and milk this mold.

Although that example holds up, you're confusing Maketoys with Mastermind Creations.

I meant to say "the" not "their". Good catch.

The one thing that made this toy for me is that he could in the long run be repurposed as a lot of characters with little effort, such as Ramjet or King Atlas as some have suggested. Heck mine's going to land up a berserker Sixwing nod on the autobot shelf.
