Smokingray7775 has posted some images on their Twitter account of the Cyertron Villains 2 pack Transformers Earthrise set which includes seekers Thundercracker and Skywarp. They give us new comparisons with the Siege releases and the classics toys. These images further reinforce how off the Siege Skywarp colours. We can also see that Skywarp's purple is closer to grape than the more lilac shade we had on the Takara classics version.

These toys will be coming to the US as Target exclusives, though we do not have preorders yet.

That's Henkei! Henkei! Skywarp. Hasbro's Classics Skywarp had pink instead of purple.

The more I look at these, the more the ankle kibble on the ER figures bother me. I wonder if they're easily removable when in robot mode.

I hate to say it, but the classics have better paint jobs.

This guy is basically a meme at this point about how gimmicks can ruin a figure.

I still kinda feel like a better mold is inevitable. Plus the only reason I'd get this pack is for Skywarp, and I kinda hate the face. And that pale purple has me wishing they went with that instead.

The gap at the top of the chest on the Earthrise versions kind ord bothers me, especially because the underside isn't painted, and it looks kind of messy.

I really hope the 3rd part of WFC won't include the seekers, because that would be just blatant trolling on Hasbro's part.

I will be a bit upset if that happens. They would be taking spots away from other characters that could have voyager figures. Like the Coneheads.

Not officially announced, no, but some leaks that have proven accurate so far have mentioned them, and their jet forms can be seen on Sky Lynx's box art.

There are lots of listings out there, look up Earthrise Thrust listing Seibertron on google.

Skritz wrote:Hm. The difference is indeed minor. Don't get me wrong they are completely different molds but the overall shape and proportions are nearly identical. While I'm skipping on the season 1 Seekers in their ER incarnation, I'm still down for some coneheads with that mold.


The Hasbro team had stated that the Siege seekers were based on the G1 cartoon official character models for robot mode proportions, so it makes sense that they would look the same regardless of alt modes.

Also I dont get how the Siege toys look better, I really dislike the wing underside in robot mode.

I don't think we have any 100% proof of any conehead...right? I could be completely wrong.
Re: New Images Comparing Earthrise Thundercracker and Skywarp with Siege and Classics Versions (2066001)

Frankly, I still feel like Fire Convoy should have been the Siege Retool of Ultra Magnus. So many of the parts come apart the same way and end up in very similar positions. Not that what we got wasnt a fun version of Cybertron Prime, but it didnt make as much sense to me aa Fire aconvoy would have. And I really want Fire Truck Optimus Prime.

Overload as a Weaponizer would be awesome, but given the "Leader" Primw would be more or less a Voyager with armor accessories, and the playlines value, I think he would have to be a Deluxe. Abd thatwould make him more compatible with other toys than if I was trying to make a Deluxe wear a pair of Voyager Legs as Guns.

But Seriously, I'm really excited about this figure.

More important question: the Base Mode is for Planetfall... Where there is Gravity. But the Ahuttle is standing on end, so who is even getting INTO the thing that way?

Posted by Skritz on May 31st, 2020 @ 7:37pm CDT
You know, maybe a new Fire Convoy would actually share engineering or design cues from Siege Magnus, at least for how the armor attach. The front cab is definitely way too different to really work as a simple retool. :-?
