Really wish they had kept the dark colors and white face from the original BotCon presentation. Not a big fan of the red face and light colors. With those colors he reminds me too much of Universe Ramjet.

It looks like Starscream's colors have been switched. That's terrible.

Eh yeah, at least he was in the BotCon follow-up comic A Common Foe. Free to read.

Dont read comics so I dont know the fiction. But any name with "elle" at the end is traditionally a female name. I would question the writer of the fiction WTF they were thinking.

I said this once before: Nacelle, like Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet, is a real word used in aviation, in this case it's a housing separate from the main body or fuselage.

I didnt know that. But to someone not verse in aviation terms its more likely to come off as being a female name. Out of all the names of parts that could have been used, it was a silly choice. Michelle, Rochelle, Jizelle, etc. I dont know if its the same comic writer, but they should have made slipstream the male (brother to bitstream) and nacelle the female seeker. It just would have worked better in the norms of human culture. Just my opinion.

The comic writer didn't make up the name, nor did the toymakers. It was a preexisting name used by a Seeker in another story from back in 2010, who was also male in that story.

And Slipstream's name was decided by a different party unrelated to the one that came up with the name of the original Nacelle.

Sad news for Collectors' Club members who are fans of the old Classics Seeker mold. Courtesy of the Transformers Collector's Club Twitter page, we have news that after the shipping of Generation 2 Starscream and Nacelle that the Club plans to retire the mold. Unfortunate news, as we have yet to see characters like Redwing be realized.

Does this news sadden you? Does it bring relief? Speak your thoughts in the Energon Pub!

Nope. In the norms of English speaking culture maybe, but not human culture. Michel is a very polular guy's name in French and Andrea is a very popular guy's name in Italian. And as far as I can tell, Transformers are for a global audience.

That's actually kinda sad to me. I AM glad to know this info, though. It will give me the green light to do my own custom of Red Wing and SG Dirge, since I know the club won't/can't release them. Bummer.

That's one of those molds that I want to hate but can't help loving, and yet part of me hates the crap out of it. On one hand, it's a great update to the original Seeker, but on the other, it's poseability is lacking for a character as impotant as Starscream. While I love having SS, SW, and TC, I was certainly ready for the new Armada Starscream to take over on my shelf.

Holy Jeez..if TFCC is putting that mold to bed, what kind of shape is it in? Nacelle and G2 Starscream are likely to be missing chunks of wings, legs, and look like they've been rolled in sand. BBTS Seacons will probably look better.

They'll probably just use the Fall of Cybertron/Armada Deluxe moulds or to wave costs the Legends mould instead

That sucks. Can they at least give us Redwing first ? Its dumb decisions like this that were the foundation of CHMS in the first place. Maybe they will get enough fan uproar at botcon to reconsider. They bluffed in the past about not ever using unicron trilogy molds again. Besides the FOC seeker mold sucks. I actually prefer the IT tetra jet mold over the FOC mold even if the head sucks.

I'm so over the 2006 seeker mold.

I feel trapped by it. I have a full squad of them, but they really are dated. I detest the idea of starting over with that group, but really wish they were bigger now that the idea of Classics have evolved.
