...this may make me want to go back and get the main three.


But you know what? I would much rather have gotten this in the Classics mold. Yes I realize that toy is ancient, does not match the play pattern, and is too small, but for completion's sake, couldnt we have gotten it one more time?

That white face and the colors definetely give me an Armada Starscream vibe. Might need to get a sword for this guy. Any suggestions?

Maybe a clear orange version of the Micromaster Air Patrol - kiiiiinda in that same vein kiiiinda nod to the IDW version of the swords kiiiiinda would be a clear orange burning guts fire mega spyblade ooook with that Dazzlestrike fire effect? Side of spicy wings with that? Sweating yet?

I'm surprised that mold survived all the uses; 30 give or take. :shock:

Honestly, this is by far my favourtie colour scheme for the Siege Seeker mold, and I am definitely very tempted. He's almost Armada Starscream, to the point where I think I would just repurpose him as such for the start of my CHUG seekers collection.

I'm loving this color scheme. I'm probably only going to pick up this guy, Skywarp, and Thundercracker in terms of this mold. The battle damage on Starscream kinda ruins that figure for me so I might just repurpose this figure as Armada Starscream's cybertronian mode

This is nice and all and I'll probably get him but: why am I supposed to like him?

There's not really anything going on, being such an obscure character born of misunderstanding between Takara, Hasbro, E-Hobby and Funpub. So I guess the appeal is 1) Hey, one more Siege seeker! and 2) Well, he's never had a toy before!.

Maybe add 3) Hey, we can actually buy an obscure-ass Seeker figure without Botcon these days! Hooray!

If I get Thundercracker, I'm totally swapping his head with Starscream's.

I think a LOT of fans are planning on doing the same, honestly. It shouldn't be hard to do either. Starscream's head comes off without much effort.

I would also add 4) His color scheme is very similar/the same as Armada Starscream, if you're into that, and 5) the fan involvement with the character's creation, as it's pretty much Powered Convoy's fault that Red Wing went from misunderstanding to obscure Seeker/actual character, and I at least think that's pretty cool. ;)^

His color is certainly lovingly eye-popping and he'd definitely look great in a crowd because in general bright red Decepticons aren't quite common. In fact I'm fairly certain he's the only red one in Siege so far and yes, I do sort of count him as a Siege toy.

Yeah, Redwing is by far the best looking Seeker to use that mold so far. I will get him.

Count me among them. HasTak obviously goofed and mixed up the face sculpts at the factory.

Yeah, he's basically just another distinct Seeker for the ranks. With the bonus of being one who has no prior toy

If the battle damage is the only issue, just wipe it off with some rubbing alcohol. I like the damage overall, but I might wipe it off of some figures after I add Selects characters like Smokescreen.

You can't wipe off the battle damage when it's paint on paint, though. Battle damage paint on bare plastic is no problem to remove, but when it's on top of already paint on detail, you're going to lose both paints in the process.

Sunstorm or Acid storm please or even the periwinkle generic would be awesome.

If you are referring to the 'Rainmaker' trio, then the yellow one is not Sunstorm but rather called Nova Storm. Their trio consist of Acid Storm, Nova Storm and Ion Storm. People assume Sunstorm is considered a Rainmaker (he isn't, its Nova Storm who is the yellow one)....except when his Botcon set is called that due to miscommunications. Oops.
