When I first got Thundertron I wasn't a fan, to say the least. Liked the bot mode for the most part, but was really disappointed with the beast mode and the weapon. That said, he has grown on me and even though he could be better I like him now.
Looking at reviews on this toy lead me to this
one in particular and gave me an idea; why not add the Star Seekers to my Classics set. I know that the Star Seekers are from the new Aligned Continuity, but this just seems like a fun way of adding more depth to my Classics set. I don't see the Classics line as a remake of G1 so much as a re-boot (which is why I'll never understand collectors who need more show/toy accuracy, especially from 3P's) so there really is no reason not to take it in any direction I want.
So that said, I've started building a Star Seekers team;
• Thundertron - now moving him from my Prime shelf to my Classics shelves.
(HFTD) - got a MISB on eBay for less than $30 shipped and should receive it soon.
(Cybertron) - watching a couple on auctions on eBay atm.
(HFTD) - instead of the Cybertron version like in the TFW review (got both tho).
• Sandstorm - might be a problem with the G1 continuity, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
Just wondering what people think of this idea, especially as it could be used for an Aligned Continuity set as well, and what toys you think would go well here. I'm also thinking of adding random HFTD, Universe and Generations toys that have no other spot on my shelves atm (due to limited space) to this team to bulk it out.
So what toys/characters do you think would fit well with the Star Seekers?
