With the Transformers fever ready to surge this summer, it's the most opportune time for third party companies to jump into the fray. None have been more controversial than third party i-Gear, who among other things, have been making mini-sized replicas of Hasbro and Takara's Masterpiece Optimus Prime. Now iGear has decided to take advantage of the demand for Conehead Seekers. And have so announced PP03E Elegy Fighter Team, a set of 3 Masterpiece Conehead Seekers Dirge, Thrust and Ramjet based on kitbashes by "wheeljack" of the Sector70 boards, you might know him as "Wheeljack-S70" which is his seibertron.com board name.

Check Elegy out below!

If you wish to see what Thrust and Ramjet might look like just check out their threads by clicking here for Ramjet and here for Thrust, they should be similar as i-Gear will be basing their figures on these.

With this product coinciding with Hasbro's release of Generations Dirge, will Hasbro finally bring out the dusty law book and hammer down on a third party company? Only time will tell, till then...

As long as Hasbro keeps making transformers that mostly appeal to children there will always be a third party making stuff for the adult collector. (I hope)

omg, omg, omg.

Yes please make this, Thrust and Ramjet too. It is using Starscream as a base but is it a KO since no Dirge actually exists?

Edit* I wonder if there is any changes to the transformation. I always have a little trouble with the heads on the MP seekers. Not much just a bother sometimes.

I would have purchased this without a second thought if it was a full scale Masterpiece figure, third party company or not.... Would have put it right next to MP Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker. But the small size... nah... it doens't fit anywhere.

It looks fantastic though!

With the extra weight on the lower legs he'd be more stable but if those bits with the fins don't swivel his feet won't even touch the ground anyway so he'll be worse than the original...

Only one question. Why MINI???
On the photo Elegy is in the same size as Mini Prime. But mini Prime is in the same size as MP Starscream. Or not? :-?

I don't really know what to say about this but I guess I'll say something. Anyway why mini Dirge, why not mini Megatron, what happened to the plans on him? This is nice in all but how would it fit in with the classics line, Prime is an awesome size because he seems to fit in at the appropriate size a leader should be.

Also, what happened to the Predaking idea they had coming?

Predaking... I thought that was CrazyDevy?

You are correct on the size, I think this will be full sized Masterpiece. There is nothing on the iGear website that suggests this is a Mini Masterpiece. Take a look at this picture. In both pics it is the Mini Prime.

Literally minutes before checking the seibertron headlines I was wondering when Takara will get on the conehead seekers. I'm pretty sure they're going to make them eventually so we'll see how this develops. I was all for the small Optimus and can't wait for him to arrive but I could see these getting shut down. Either way we're getting coneheads I guess!

I think he means MP Starscream as the original use of the mold.
