Courtesy of the Planet Iacon facebook page we an image of what could be artwork for an upcoming Asian exclusive box set of Classic Seekers. The art features all six Seekers and has the bears the Transformers Asia watermark at the top of the image. Chalk this one up as a rumor until confirmed, but this does seem to fall in line with their model of reissuing older releases with updated decos into the Asian market. Check out the artwork below.

I can imagine Skywarp and Ramjet possibly being redecos. The rest might just be straight re-releases of their previous Universe and Generations decos.

Cool idea. What might be cooler? The rainmakers, and or genericon seekerbots.

Agreed; after seeing that our next Constructicon reissue has a new noggin that makes me feel better about passing up CrazyDevy's upgrades, I was kind of hoping some sort of exclusive seeker set would include Rainmakers and a lot more orange and purple. Now THAT, I would buy to make my army even bigger; this looks like 6 guys I pretty much have already, though some of us missing 1 or 2 could probably justify getting the whole set just to fill their gap.

I mean, the recent explosion of Knock-Offs of original 3rd party sculpts only makes an existing moral minefield even more tangled, but the official companies actually learning from 3rd parties and KO-meisters and incorporating their ideas into reissues wouldn't exactly be theft, but rather 2 wrongs making a right, right? Come on, masterpiece dino-combiner cassettes, don't let last year's s#!t-storm and sacrifice have been all for nothing...

All I really need is a slightly better version of Skywarp than my KO, which is still pretty good.

I'd consider getting this just to keep them in the box, but it depends on price, which I can only assume will be astronomical.

They all look like they're going to be heavily based on the cartoon.

Starscream - slightly different details and (likely) shades then the Henkei figure (no chrome?)
Thundercracker - slightly different details and (likely) shades then the Henkei figure (no chrome?)
Skywarp - different color purple, purple arm cannons (instead of partly black) and purple shoulders.
Ramjet - red wings like Henkei (presumably), all gray fists, white forearms, gray waist and upper legs. Presumably he'd have white feet.
Dirge - tan wings, all gray fists, gray forearms, gray waist and upper legs. Presumably his feet would be gray too (but that seems a bit unlikely due to the mold break down).
Thrust - I pray for white or silver wings. Based on the picture he has all gray fists, gray forearms, red waist and upper legs. His feet should be red but if his forearms are gray that might not be true.

All the coneheads look to have blue windows.

So... Apparently this is a boxed set of al 6 figues. Damn, I don't want to even think of the price.


I doubt its popularity, since most collectors would at least have a few seekers already...

Awesome. I would love to see this mentality in the US, with like $20 seeker 3 packs or something. Or using Vehicons, or Autotroopers.

The G2 Starscream is a pretty solid match for that hot-pink USA version. The only thing it lacked was the camo stickers. Maybe ReproLabels will come through with some of those.

Our G2 lineup could stand for a Starscream, since we already have a G2 Ramjet, Megatron, Prime, Jazz...

Oh yeah, and I'd love to see a mainstream G2 Classics Sideswipe release. :sad:

He needs to have the white helmet and black face like the Pretender and Action Master had.
