Decepticus Prime and Seibertronian MartianSpyGirl1996 have brought us some interesting information about a possible Transformers Combiner Wars Leader Class Skywarp! What we have is an image from a (presumably) store product listing stating "TRA GEN LEADER SKYW" which (again presumably) will be based on the Leader Class Thundercracker mold. Are the days of us getting Thundercracker, Starscream, then Sunstorm/Acidstorm over? Only time will tell.... so stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers News!

Looking forward to getting all the 1984 Season One seekers in the Generations Leader class. Always felt the Deluxe class seekers for CHUG were too small.

I'm glad I have no desire to get any of the Leader Class Seekers, otherwise I'd have to get them all...

he does look like a better seeker than a jet fire. I Did buy jet fire and hence can't justify this guy especially since i'd want to get the other seekers. Size wise i prefer him as jet fire as it feels somewhat truer to the original cartoon scale. But in terms of look and feel and alt mould, definitely works very well as an updated seeker.

Was that mold even meant to be used solely for Jetfire in the beginning? It feels like it was always intended to be a Seeker mold IMO.

Huh... remember how confused we all were to se initial shots of Jetfifre's alt mode? Its CW Prime/Motormaster all over again. :-?

When I finally have CW Leader Starscream, I will try Jetfire's jetpack and/or all his weapons on him, just to see how that look. :-?

I'd be a little curious to see that too. I wouldn't mind seeing the jet pack painted black on TC either.

I do think that jet mode would look good painted almost any color. Maybe not tutifruti?

That's a fair call BUT ... just like the Datsun boys, the Seeker jets are their own characters, they may share a mold but they're very much individual.

Buy them all. You'll be kicking yourself when they bring Skywarp out. (And they'd better bring Skywarp out)


You'd be happy to hear then that someone has found skywarp on a computer. But since there was never photo evidence, the rumour doesnt hold much water.

Also, I do have a question about this mold being great for seekers. The one part that throws me off is the wings in robot mode. I am used to one set of wings extending out his sides on the back. But with this mold, the wings are more of a canopy that keep going upwards past his shoulders. I didnt mind that for Jetfire but for the seekers, it looks a bit off. Granted, I only saw that when I compared it to the MP. How do you feel about the new wing arrangement? And you dont miss the vents on the side of his head?


But you're looking at him from a nostalgia perspective.

Masterpiece Thundercracker is the Seeker mold of the 20th century. It's the definitive rendering of his cartoon self.

You can have that look in multiple ways, we have already, Robot Masters, Classics ... it's been done.

Now look at CWL Thundercracker again. Remembering what century you're living in. It's still Thundercracker, but he's better designed, his look is updated, yes it's different but it's a GOOD different.

I LOVE this mold for the Seekers. Jetfire can just with the rest of the so-called CW "outcasts". This is his second chance and he's once again failed.


Thanks for your reply, it is a very interesting take. But I am super confused by your thought of Jetfire as a failure. I thought the reasons he was seen as a failure were due to the hollowness and the fake chest, two asoects that remain the same with this used as a seeker mold. So what makes Jetfire a failure while not staining the use of this mold for seekers?

Aw heck yeah, Skywarp!

Though I'd REALLY like to see a leader class Thrust done with this mold. I mean - we all like VTOL turbines, right...?

Yay! Really glad Skywarp, my fav seeker in terms of colors, has a sorta confirmed release! He's gonna pull off that mold so well, can't wait to see that sexy purple and black color scheme.

My guess is because of the ones holding the rights to Maccross held them with a iron grip, no TRUE G1 Jetfire can ever be made. Best way to stop any complains is if you take a modern trnasformable Macross toy and customise it into Jetfire.
Because let's face it, the only way to have a defenitive G1 Jetfire is to make a MP one. Something that can never be done.

So, complainers should just STFU and buy the complete original G1 toy if they can never be satisfied by either the voyager Classic or the Gen Leader one. Because unless HASTAK finally own Macross, your dream Jetfire will NEVER be made.

It would be really nice if that mold would be used on the conehead Seekers. I'd love to have a Leader Class Ramjet.

I think I'd have to buy a leader Thrust... hell, also do one in his Armada colors! I'd also buy a Slipstream and Windblade. But none of these boring seekers... they've been done to death before

So I got Leader Megatron on Friday and opened it up today. OMG, have you ever heard the phrase about toys not photographing well? Well CW Megatron is the embodiment of that saying, I have yet to see a picture or video that properly captures this toy. For me the biggest in hand realization was the fusion cannon. Like everyone else I rotated it around so the bigger end faced forward, and then quickly rotated it back because it just looked better that way. Sure in 20 years this will be junk because the rubber treads will disintegrate but for now it's awesome. By the by, did the stickers come in the baggie with the card for everyone?
