Who's to say it's Skywarp? It might be Thundercracker, Sunstorm or even Ghost of Starscream. Only time will tell...

My money is on Sunstorm.

But a Ghost Starscream (transluscent plastic and all) is still a possibility. Takara loves translucent plastic.

Of course they could always make it 2 for the price of one, and have a translucent yellow/orange Sunstorm.

I think this is the most likely release, but I wouldn't discount Thundercracker either.

I'd love to see a "Classics" themed Thundercracker released, and Tomy/Takara seems to be the only chance most fans have for one that's not a Botcon exclusive.

Motto: "'Til All Are One!"
Weapon: Twin Shock-Concussion Missiles
While I've been arguing that the BotCon exclusive seekers won't be released for Henkei at retail in Japan, I wouldn't be at all surprised if those figures are released as limited exclusives in Japan such as Wonderfest and such (with runs of 500 to 1,000 to keep the inline with those figures being exclusives). For those of you who don't know, generally Wonderfest exclusives fetch a pretty penny. The G1 colored Movie Arcee goes for around $150 (give or take $25). I would be 100% OK with those figures being released as exclusives in Japan.

Hasbro said at Toyfair there would be 1.0 repaints for 2.0. Its possible that this is the Japanese release of a seeker repaint planned for 2.0 and Hasbro just hasn’t said anything about it. Most likely it would be either Skywarp or Sunstorm.

No doubt--there's already 17 pages of that train wreck...

I'm betting Skywarp on this one, but I would drop a doody in my pants from sheer happiness if it's Sunstorm...

:PRAY:(for Sunstorm, not the doody)

I say Skywarp or Ramjet. I also suspect it could be a Crystal or Black Starcream. The smartest choice would be Sunstorm.

The boring answer is Skywarp

The awesome answer is Sunstorm

The best answer is Ghost Starscream

and the most dangerous answer is Thundercracker

I'm gonna go on record and say that I hope that it's not Sunstorm. I personally don't see the attraction of a banana-colored F-15.

Is Sunstorm even considered a real character in Japan?

The first exclusive version we received him was an E-Hobby exclusive, which was quite popular.

And I didn't know bananas were orange? :P Just kidding, I know some Sunstorms have been yellow with orange, but I most sharply picture the orange E Hobby version, and the orange Walmart exclusive (Armada Thrust repaint)... but I know there are yellow versions too.

I'd love to get Thrust but that's a long shot, we'll probably get either Thundercracker, Sunstorm, Skywarp, or even Starscream's Ghost, which are all good choices in my opinion.
