I love these figures, nothing says G1 seekers like the latest Classics/generations F-15s and the rest of the crew (ramjet, etc...), but it would be nice to see an updated version of them made into F-22s, don't get me wrong, I am glad that we're getting any G1 TFs from hasbro period, but may be later on down the line, because of how many times the application of mold can be used for different characters of the same alt mode...:-?

On another note, does this mean that the Botcon Thundercracker will go down in price now? :KREMZEEK:

I'm kinda down about the fact that I have to wait for Warpath to come before I get these from BBTS.I do believe that this will be my 18th distinct Seeker with G2 Ramjet being 19th later this year. While I sold Starscream's Ghost last year I still think that's damn impressive...

Is anyone else kicking themselves for not buying the Magnus/Skywarp 2-pack?

Thats exactly how Im gonna do it.

1. Tracks gun becomes Wheeljacks rocket launcher.

2. Bought a 2nd Jazz so Tracks gets a new gun that actually looks like a gun.

3. Extra Jazz gets a Reprolabels upgrade. :D

I think most people did (myself included). Especially when Fansproject created City Commander.

Glad I got mine when it first came out. Me loves some Skywarp. And Thundercracker too, and Wheeljack... When I find them, they'll be mine, o yes. :x

Before I forget, how's Thundercracker anyway? Nice and tight joints?

He seems okay. I was very impressed with how tightly his weapons pegged into his wings.

I recieved these two along with Kup and Scourge from BBTS on Monday. (I had already found a Scourge locally.) I have to say Wheeljack is my favorite followed closely by Thundercracker. I already had the Henkei version of TC but I like how this version is a darker blue and therefore looks more like the G1 toy! And again I LOVE WHEELJACK!

They both look gorgeous. Wheeljack may become my favourite Classics TF. I don't collect Classics Seekers, but I may buy this Thundercracker until a cheaper Takara/Hasbro MP Thundercracker comes along.

I already have the henkei Thundercracker but wasn't really impressed. The wings were too loose and I had to fill the armholes with some glue just so the guns would stay in. I'm wondering if I should buy the Generations one just to have a better quality Thundercracker.

I did kick myself for not buying the Magnus/Skywarp set. I was able to snatch a Skywarp off of Ebay. I don't miss Magnus. Maybe if he had a retooled head, I would've wanted him, but I was never a fan of the white Prime look.

Gorgeous looking figures. I'm impressed enough with Thundercracker that he will be replacing my Henkei version in the display for certain. I'm especially happy that they fixed the issues with the mold. Now will this put that idea of mold degradation to rest as an excuse for why they won't release certain figures, or are does everyone still believe? :P :lol:

Can't wait for Warpath to come in so I can ship my loot!

Good work on the galleries Ryan!

Generations TC looks pretty cool, I'm going to have to get him. The Henkei one I have is light enough and different enough to make a good Rainmaker instead.

Also liking Wheeljack, too bad all of these are so hard to find. :-(
