Does he have any foot articulation or is he just the same as the Classics Seeker?


It is less like an updated Classics seeker, and more like a scaled down MP Seeker.

There is a lot of detail, and a good number of moving parts, but not so many as to be confusing or make it feel flimsy, the way the first MP Seeker mold did.

To answer your question, yes, there is foot articulation. The foot is attached to a ball joint that is in turn attached to a moving post (used for the transform).

I do have a couple minor complaints. Neither the individual bots, nor the Superion arm have appreciable wrist articulation.

The wrist attachment on Superion NEEDS to be extended so it can twist past the engines. It will also allow a LOT more poses of the arm. Hopefully this will come out as a simple replacement part with one of the other bots.

Ah, cheers for that.
Maybe it was the review, but despite its massive length ( :lol: ) the reviewer failed to angle the feet/ankles which made me think of the Classics Seekers and their lack of articulation.

I wouldnt complain if a set of these fell into my lap, its just the price with shipping which puts these out of my grasp, more so this year since im about to have a baby! :grin:

I am surprised to see that Eagles hands do not fold in or disguisein the alt mode. A lazy design in my opinion. Overall there is a lot of detail and give credit there, but the transformations seem a bit simple and robot modes could be a little better.

Congrats on the new addition!!!!

I understand the $$$ crunch all too well. We have a new kiddo at home too.
I've done pretty well by buying a couple at a time from RK, that saves on shipping, and buying through Bill me Later. If you spend over $99, they give you 6 months no interest.
I got Herc That way last year so it didn't even impact the Christmas budget.

For me and my collection, TFC is putting out the figs I've wanted since I was a wee lad.
To save bucks I've really cropped out most of the junk Hasbro is pumping out.
The candy colored monsters from the new beast hunters line are a massive disappointment.

I'd rather shell out for one or two kick @$$ combiners a year than fill my shelves with the current crop of junk.

Even with a lot of 3rd party stuff on the horizon, I think I'll be spending the same or less this year than last.

hey does anyone have an idea of when F-16 Falcon and AV-8B Harrier II will be available for pre order? I know on the TFC Facebook page they showed a pic of what Falcon looked like, but that was back in december and we havent heard anything since then.

If any of us had that information, it would be posted in the thread. Since there's no information in the thread, it's safe to say that none of us know it yet.

I'm afraid you have to do the same thing that everyone else does: watch various 3rd party facebook pages for posts or check your favourite online seller's website often.

Hey all of those color shots look amazing!! Can't wait for Blackbird to come out next month. Soon Falcon and Harrier II will be available for pre order. (Hopefully)

I really like the colors they chose. Black would be too dark at least this white color really makes the other colors pop.

Okay, that does look pretty good as far as holding true to G1 colors....it's just....it's not a Blackbird...

I suppose F15s were really never colored black and purple or bright yellow, so the coloring shouldn't really be an issue. I'm almost ready to jump. I'll have to see how much the back-to-normal Social Security tax takes out of my next paycheck...

I'm not crazy about that Superion head. That visor-which appears to be flip down or removable-looks strange with the red eyes. I'm definitely going to wait for the reviews on this figure.

Im happy with the paint scheme. G1 all the way. It never should have been a SR-71 in the first place since the other 4 planes are keeping their G1 likeness and colors. The Concorde would have been awesome. But that heads gotta go !!! Just give him the damn faceplate. Crazydevy can you hear me ???

There was a pic earlier (long time ago, and thread is now a monster) that showed Air Raid with the wings in Seeker configuration in robot mode. I don't remember seeing anything but speculation from Seibertron members that TFC might put out seekers using the Air Raid mold.
