I may get these. I do like the metallic paint. Gotta wait to see what the cost is first though.

Indeed. Right now I have Henkei Starscream, Classics Skywarp and Generations Thundercracker as my main three. It would be nice to have a unified set of 3

the set looks nice, but i cant afford to plunge into another set of seekers when i have Universe Starscream, Classics Skywarp, and Generations Thundercracker. I do prefer the different wing designs of the 3 I have. It gives them a little more character

Man, I have Henkei Starscream, Henkei Skywarp (after forever using the Classics one, finally grabbed a Henkei a while back, those cost a bit these days :() and Generations Thundercracker (not sure if this new one will top him or not, I love that dark blue on the Generations version).

I've got Universe Classics 2.0 Starscream, but after painting the orange parts red (like they should be, Damn you Hasbro!!! :P), I put him on my Beast Wars shelf. He stands just behind Waspinator (Possession ;)).

Skywarps non painted fists connected to his metallic painted wrists look horrible. Im glad I got the Henkei 3, even though they cost me $250. Back then they were gold before Generations and CHMS. Lets see how they do the coneheads. The only one Henkei got right was Ramjet.

So, when can we expect the older versions to hit EBay once the boxset is released? >:oP

$170 for these is crazy talk. I feel sorry for the completionists out there.

When all I want is skywarp, this is not nearly worth it given ebay.

Preordered, just as a placeholder. A lot of time between now and January, but if the price doesn't drop, then my preorder will ;).

TFSource has them for $130 which seems a better price for the set. I'm guessing today or tomorrow BBTS will bring their listing in line.

Got all six seekers already. Way too spicy for me, to boot.

That is a crazy price for 3 deluxe figures. I will just get skywarp from ebay. I paid less than that for 3 mp thundercrackers during TRU's buy 2 get 1 free sale a couple weeks ago.

Ha! Way to put it into perspective. You got three MASTERPIECE seekers for less. Touché. :BOWDOWN:

I have the Hasbro seekers already. I am good.

$170 is too much money for three deluxe figures. That is just a silly number.

after working out the price in British Pounds, from the pre-order on TFSource, I don't actually think the price is all that bad. Well, at least when compared to ebay prices for some of the individual bots.

****. I really hope these Seeker sets see an EU, specifically UK release. Dread to think what they will do to my wallet otherwise... :sad:

The conehead seekers look nice. Not simply a marked-up repaint that everyone was expecting.
Still not sure I'd pay $130-170 (TFSource or BBTS price reference?) for the set though (assuming this set is similarly priced.

Kind of undecided with these recent Seeker sets. On the one hand, I'd love to get a complete set of Seekers. But on the other hand, I hate the articulation issues on these figures. Plus, they don't scale well with my MP/Generations Neo-G1 collection.

I'll probably have to stick with TT's V2 MP Seekers to complete my seeker collection.

Well this mold aged really quickly. I would prefer the thrust rotf mold for the conehead seekers with remolded feet, then I would have been all over this set.
