New information about Henkei Thrust has been revealed. According to the Japanese blog, Moe Kyon, which is presented by Ganbo-Store.com, Thrust's fans are detachable and can be placed on the main wings. In addition, the fans can spin freely. Look at the pictures and judge for yourself if the extra holes seen on the main wings have something to do with the fan attachments.

I thought those rotor packs would be movable.

Likely the images have them on the tail fins so any promotion material would be clearly different than the Botcon version.

Around $40 with shipping for each.



Man. Makes me wish I knew someone over there. Huge markup to get it from a shop.

Why the hell did they put the fans on the tailfins anyway? They're supposed to be on the wings.

They probably placed the fans on the tailfins because they wanted folks to see that the mold is different from the Botcon mold.

That's hilarious!

But it's cool that they were able to work movable and rotating fans into the figure. Now you get a better looking jet mode, and cartoon accurate legs.

Thank Primus, Thrust's fans are movable and that they can actually spin!!! Very cool indeed. I guess I'll have to preorder this bad boy now since I'm all out of excuses. :D

Hell yes! I'm so glad I have a connection in the Land of the Rising Sun. I passed on Henkei Ramjet and thanks to his pegwarmer status I'll get all 3 shipped for less then what BBTS wants for Thrust and Dirge before shipping. $320 to have a complete set of Seekers and Coneheads in the same G1 deco style vs. around $1000 backmarket to have the Classics/Botcon versions with randomly mismatched deco styles. *wipes Manly Tears* Epic Win! Thank you TakTom!

I wasn't sure the first time I saw them but they're growing on me the more I look at them.
It'll be good to have all 6 seekers together :D

Classics Starscream, Skywarp, and Ramjet get to be demoted to generic Seekers alongside Acid Storm when I get my Henkei Coneheads.

I'll be getting these two, however since I already have a Dirge and Thrust c/o Botcon, I'll be calling these two by new names.
