Ever since MP-03 Starscream made his debut one question has plagued Seeker fanatics, "Would we see a complete set?" The Skywarp and Thundercracker repaints were inevitable. They required virtually no remolding and were guaranteed to sell. Their coneheaded brethren on the other hand would be little harder to pull off. To do them justice they would require a new head mold and three sets of unique wings. To date Takara has shown no indication of releasing the coneheads. Last year third party toy maker iGear announced they would be stepping up to fill that void on everyone's Masterpiece shelf with their versions of Dirge(PP03 Elegy), Ramjet(PP03 Jet), and Thrust(PP03-Attack). These guys are a costly endeavor and there's no guarantee Takara won't release official versions at some point down the road, but if you're a hardcore Seeker fan these may be hard to resist.

iGear has updated their facebook page with test shot videos for all three figures. Check them out below.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I REALLY despise the trend of video reviews/previews/etc. Some pics and text works fine, really. Aside from bandwidth (which is not a problem for me, thankfully, but may still be for others) I really don't have nearly 20 minutes to spend watching some videos when half a dozen pics and a few lines of text per would be more than sufficient… :CON:

I have not ordered them, but only because I didn't have that much cash laying around :(

I really do like these, especially the leg mods.

They would do me a favor if they would just sell leg mod kits for the existing seekers.

I would love to get these but I think it might be worth waiting to see what takara comes out with for their next mp. I would actually be surprised if they didnt make the coneheads since they only need to modify the molds.

Looks kind of floppy which wouldn't surprise me since my mini-Prime has floppy shoulders. I'll pass.

I would like to buy them buy I heard these I-Gear MF's are clowning with the shipping. I heard the shipping price was almost 50 bucks each. Why ??? I have ordered large boxes directly from Japan through Robotkingdom and the prices were never that high for one large package. Why is I-Gear lying abouut shipping costs ???

rpetras - That is an excellent suggestion. Contact them and give them that idea. I would buy them. Hell, I bet ANYONE who owns this mold would buy it!

Maybe G1 accurate paint scheme would be cool too! (Thundercracker with black rear tail wings, paint stripes, ect).

DevastaTTor - They look floppy because they're prototypes. ALL prototypes are VERY fragile and do NOT represent the build of the final product.

I own ALL the PP01 toys (Except for the shattered glass)
(Ultra Magnus, Nemesis Convoy, Convoy, Clear Convoy)
And they are FANTASTIC. The quality of the plastic is top notch. The joints are excellent.

If your joints are not to your liking, they are VERY easy to fix. All you need is a screwdriver (optional) and anything containing Future. (Pledge, Future, even superglue).

Let's not get a halo effect on "official toys" either. Anyone own an MP Rodimus Convoy? A Green Starscream? An MP Megatron? And...scene.

Rated X - That's great but they are NOT coming from Japan. They are coming from CHINA. This is not even China, but to give you an example: shipping a MP-03 from Hong Kong to the United States will cost you between $38 and $55 depending on the service you use.

It's not an iGear conspiracy. It's how it is.

We can all rejoice! Postage rates are increasing again on April 15th. 8-}

Robot Kingdom is actually out of China as well. I ordered black MP Prime from them, which is heavier than a seeker, and I think the shipping was like $15.

Actually, RobotKingdom is based out of Hong Kong, I would know because I pick up my orders in person :P That said I can't wait to pick these up and bring them back with me to Canada in the summer.

you know I dont care about the shipping personally I love them and pre-ordered mine when i had some extra cash in November I just wish i could afford a second set to have in both modes. But these look great and my other TAK MP seekers and 1/48 Robotech bots will learn to co-exist no i just need a megs, rodimus and another grimlock and i will be happy.

Same here. It's a real shame to miss out, but I just bought MP-05 Megatron for over £100, and I'm saving my pennies for DOTM. For now, I'll just stick with the Classics Coneheads, and try to ignore the size difference between them and the Masterpieces. Perhaps iGear will do a second run if they're popular enough.

It's probably cheaper to buy iGear Ramjet than the Classics one :lol:

Is there a reason why they are not getting the same null-ray guns as Starscream? Having gas tanks on their arms are just too dangerous :P

Thats not true. I have spent hundreds at KO Toys which is based in China. Some of my orders are so big the guy ships them in used Hasbro boxes big enough to hold 2 Takara MP seeker packages. He charges by zones and the USA is in Zone 2. He charges a respectable $9.99 for EMS shipping for any size package.

I also have ordered from robot kingdom. Shipping on both E-Hobby 3 packs, PE Reflector, and 2 United deluxes came to $68 bucks. That weighs about as much as 2 MP seekers. So if I-gear is charging 50 bucks shipping each and not bundling them together they are doing some foul s**t.

Who ever else you buy from in China is ripping you off, probally using some expensive service instead of standard EMS. I suggest you challenge him or threaten to take your business elsewhere.

Shipping is not quite $50 each. When I tried to order them to see how much shipping was it came to $108. It might have to do with the fact they they are shipping two together and the third seperately. Shipping might be cheaper if you wait until they are all released and they might ship them all together. That is my theory anyways.

Think I know where part of my refund from Uncle Sam is going.

Having those three lined up in a case with the other Seekers would look really nice.
