Since my Henkei Ramjet is perfectly cartoon accurate, I just cant justify spending $130 bucks not to have annoying patterens on the wings of Thrust and Dirge. Plus I always hated the backwards faction signs, I like them facing fowards in jet mode and right side up in robot mode.

Urgh... $130 for both Aces and Elites...

But in regards to both boxes and sets of figures:

Acid Storm, Thundercracker-ish person, and Sunstorm.

Sounds legit.

Sunstorm's more of a golden-orangish yellow than lemon/banana yellow. ;)

*sighs*

Ok, I guess I have no choice but to grab these guys, seeing as how my Classics Starscream is turning to crap and I never got the chance to get Skywarp and Thundercracker.

Oh my indeed!! Seems to me of the 3 Skywarp's paint aps are richer and bold looking IMO. I think as these become available on ebay someone is bound to separate the set then I'll be able to pick up this great looking Skywarp. :VEHI:

:D
I still need a Classics Skywarp and a Ramjet!

Of all the reused molds this Seeker one covers a whole load of characters. Well done Hasbro! ;)

Starscream, Thundercracker, Dirge, Thrust all accounted for plus Acid storm and an old CHMS yellow Rainmaker/possible Sunstorm clone?

Still wished they had made this mold slightly larger, just a touch. :-?

Wasnt there a blue dude in the storyline called Ice Storm or was he just fanfiction/customs? :???:

I keep going back and forth on whether I should get the set. I've been wanting to get a complete set of seekers for my neo-G1 collection, but I don't know if I should save the cash for Takara's inevitable version 2 MP Skywarp and Thundercracker.

The classics deluxe sizes don't scale so well with MP-10 Optimus.

I like these, but arm articulation sucks with the nul-rays attached.

Currently I've only got Generations Thundercracker.

With the US retail version of new-mold V2 Thundercracker doing the rounds, it would be very lazy but inevitable of Takara/Hasbro to put out MP Skywarp again. Shame they dont put out the Coneheads.
Where the iGear Coneheads the exact same scale/height as the Hasbro ones? :???:

I'm worried that with Hasbro's release of MP Thundercracker, Takara might skip him. Hopefully Takara will release all three V2 MP seekers. The local TRU sucks, and the wasn't a single Hasbro MP Thindercracker in sight.

What's with the horrible cheap looking grey plastic on Starscream?
His wings, arms and legs look like they're made of old soap.
Soapscream.

Thundercracker looks good.

Don't like the use of purple on Skywarp.

I posted a much better gallery of these figures here days ago and they go ignored. Images from somewhere else days later and much worse, don't? ):(

Tell Skywarp to close his Boobiemissiles. lol
I have all Classic/Generations Seekers through Retail.
Both Starscreams.
Skywarp without the Decepticon emblem.
And Thundercracker with the emblem reversed.

My local TRU has like 10 'crackers on the shelf. No MP10 Primes though...=(

They'll probably be dumping them next month on ebay or what not.
I guess nobody but me was crazy enough to spend $75 on a present for their nephew! =D

My local TRU doesn't bring in MP anything. All my MP TF's have to be purchased at a hobby store that sells Japanese imports.

Man, you're possibly one of the coolest uncles in the world!
