I'm curious about the Targetmasters, although Skywarp alone would justify getting them.

I guess in my "personal continuity" G2 Sideswipe would have to be a different character. Lambo? Spinout? Fish-Tail?

Spinout is already taken, he's the red redeco of Sunstreaker. And a Chef... Who got promoted to a field commander... Because the Cons ripped tjrough everyone else above the chain of command.

Okay, well, not the Slamdance I've been hoping for, but it's nice to see that someone remembered him, and that he's not just a redeco. Also, is it me or does it seem like whenever one of the original three Seekers is made an exclusive of some sort it's always Skywarp?

IDW's previous universe introduced a black, white, and red bot born after the war in Trypticon's hatchery, whom Arcee named Sideswipe after the original was finally taken off life support.

To be fair they are supposed to be Cybertronian alt modes, in the seekers case, the tetra jets seen in more than meets the eye part 1. I suspect we'll be given earth mode jets again at some point ;)

Thanks for the info, I wasn't aware of its existence. I'm a little behind schedule with my readings (right after "Dark Cybertron", actually), since I didn't manage to get the whole IDW first run until recently, thanks to Humble Store.

Aw man I hope Skywarp isn't going to be too hard to get. For one thing, his colors are crisp and a lovely shade of purple, as opposed to some Skywarp which are a bit too pink. He also come with his own little squad of Battlemasters and these little guys are always fun. And finally he complete the main seeker trio.

I hope I can get my hands on that set. :-(

Leader class price point? So I have to pay leader price for Skywarp because they packed him with a bunch of extra crap that I have no interest in? And I hope it's just these pictures but he doesn't look black, he looks dark gray.

Not gonna lie, the only figure here I'm excited for is the skywarp. The skytread is nice, greenlight is.....fine, but the g2 sideswipe suffers from not goin all the way, like the cw g2 bruticus set. I just hope that an armada wheeljack will come from the sideswipe sometime.

Its been a (near) consistent pattern that at least one of the Seekers end up an exclusive. Pretty sure they do it on purpose knowing people want the trio. >:oP

I hope not. In the past 2 years when Deluxes figures came with a *little something extra* (thinking TR Arcee, Grotusque & last years Punch, Blast off, and Repugnus) they were between $25 and $30, I would expect/hope Greenlight, Lancer and the other Deluxes to be around the $30 US Price Point (20 dollar deluxe plus 6 dollar Battle Master plus a small markup for packaging and exclusivity)

Skywarp having 3 battle Masters would normally retail for 30 + 6x3(18) So $48.... Meaning $50.00 would not be a bad price at all for everything included.

Sorry..it took a while to convert from the other currency. So while Voyager Skywarp (+3 battle masters) will be Leader Price Point, so will the others, but the catch is... Firestormer & Slamdance are packaged together, I think very few remembered that, which I can understand as it seems to be quite an odd pairing, plus the chart was kind of cut-off etc....

So for *roughly* $50, you are getting 2 deluxes, and one BM, which is about $46 retail, so not that bad actually.

Skywarp ($30 Voyager) with three Battle Masters ($6 a piece) comes to about $48 USD, which is right on the money. The "Firestormer set" is a little bit of a rip-off, though. That's two Deluxes, G2 Sideswipe and Slamdance ($20 a piece), and only ONE Battle Master ($6) for a total of $46 USD. They could have given poor Slamdance his own Battle Master too, then the set would be a value at $50 when the total of each size class individually would be $52 USD. That extra $2 saved their could have offset the $2 lost with the Skywarp package.

Greenlight with Dazlestrike will probably be $25, which is a value (you can do the math). This is based on the listings that w-j88 listed earlier.

Hmm, I am digging the sets!

I am still really lukewarm on that Seeker mold though. I am passing on Scream, but I will get TC cause he's my favorite. I like the colors on Skywarp, and I love the army of Battlemasters with him! I may get him. I'm hoping he's after TC though, so I can gauge my interest with the mold before i potentially get 3 of them (Redwing included).

G2 Sideswipe needed some green dangit! And some new dangerous guns! He needed the G2 MP treatment! I am happy for a Slamdance too, and I love all the names in that set: The Firestormers, Slamdance, Sideswipe, I love it all.

And this G2 Swiper will be my IDW young boy who was birthed post war. It's pretty much perfect for that.

Lancer reveal please, along with dates of releases for all >:oP

I'm really digging the repainted silver shoulder launcher and missile on G2 sideswipe. I'm going to swap them over to the regular "G1" Siege Sideswipe and give the black cannon with red missile to G2 Sideswipe. That'll sooth my "show accuracy" needs. The black and red will still match with G2 Sideswipe, and the original G2 didn't have that shoulder launcher anyway, but a different neon green gun with elongated blue missile.

I'm tempted to get a second set to do something similar for the upcoming Siege Red Alert (since he doesn't come with any shoulder launcher accessories), but I don't know what I'd do with an extra G2 Sideswipe and Slamdance. $50 is a lot of money for an just accessory for an action figure.

Well I already have a Skywarp, so as cool as his small collection of minions is, I was always going to pass on that pack. The Firestormers, on the other hand, definitely have my attention. Seeing Slamdance with his color scheme flipped will kinda take some getting used to, but I really appreciate his guns being silver to reference his cassette origin, him getting his own new accurate head sculpt, and really just the fact that he exists. The G2 Swipe looks good too, that alt mode looks badass in black and red, and the red windshield is a nice touch. If they end up fixing Red Alert before they release him, I guess my two uses of this mold will be headcanoned to be twins?

I'm intending to name mine Deadline if I get him, as that sounds too much like a generic TF name for me to actually believe it's never been used, and of course a guy with that name would be black and red.
