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.
I once read that self deprecating humor is a sign of intelligence.
So, I started making fun of myself like crazy...

Not sure if he posts here or not, but rumble619 made a post of his custom seekers using the Eagle F-15 mold: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/780018-voyager-seekers-finished.html

He's also working on coneheads. If TFC were to release their own seekers, I'd be very interested in purchasing. Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to handle this figure yet but I hope it's stable.

Found the seeker config! :grin:

It was a prototype pic. I don't know if it was ever confirmed with the final product, but it was one of the reasons I was seriously considering picking up Eagle.

[Edit] Page 28 in case you wanted to peruse the response to it. There wasn't much.

Um.....I'm not sure I see what you mean. Are you bothered by the joint in the wings? Outside of that I just see a new head and a remolded chest, with a false cockpit as you mentioned. It would seem a fair compromise to making a larger set of seekers. Not perfect, for sure.

Otherwise, I believe iGear has some MP knockoffs that are smaller than the MPs. I think...

I meant the joint inside his torso that makes him a limb. Not to say a seeker combiner wouldn't be..... interesting(?), but to be quite frank I'd rather that functionality be removed altogether

I get you. I'm sure it could be done, ala the FansProject Bruticus re-released crossfire set. I think the unique characters had their connecting bits left out. Would it be worth the extra expense, however? I'd think some might be okay with just re-molds with leaving the extra connector bits if they are not visible. I'm not speaking for anybody here, just thinking out loud (typing) that anything hidden that costs extra in remold costs could be left alone. *shrug*

For what it's worth, FP left the connector port in when they redesigned Munitioner into Warcry. The hole had a removable plug on it, but that's it. Explorer/Flameblast never had a connector built in, but it retains the slots where the shoulder joint clips in. Additionally, Flameblast's sword is fitted for Colossus's hand. Neither figure had all the combiner kibble of their original mold counterparts, but it's entirely possible to make a Bruticus out of them if you have the Crossfire 02 sets. Bearing in mind that some people may want to build a Uranos with seekers for limbs for their own reasons, I doubt they'd go to the trouble to remove the shoulder connector in the event that they remake the F-15 into seekers.

I suppose you're right, but personally I'd rather it was taken out since I won't be using as a limb, and it'd just be a waste of unused parts in the production budget.

It would cost them more to re-engineer the figure to remove it than it would to just do another run of it in different colors with all the pieces intact.
