That poor classics Starscream mold... I haven't gotten a figure based on that mold in a while. I wonder how it's holding up?

Wow. Yet ANOTHER Seeker repaint with a new name. How do people justify the expensive of membership with getting repaints in return?

I'm pretty happy about him! This particular version of the mold is difficult to come by at a decent price. Since We've already got an update of Thrust more widely available at retail, the fact that a toy of an obscure character was made out of a rare mold is good news to me!

Love that seeker mold and cant get enough of it. But I wonder why Nacelle's bio says that it is a "he" when it has a girls name ?

That's all we'll be getting, no new-mold toys aside from heads.

Besides, it's not the figure, but the history behind the deco, in this case Thrust's prototype colors. But since some couldn't care less I'll just pretend I never said anything. >:oP

And guys, "Nacelle" isn't a made-up, feminine name, it's an actual word, like Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. It's the housing for an engine, fuel or equipment, separate from the fuselage.

Fair enough, however my counterpoint is; an all female squadron of seekers would be badass.

Yeah, that would be sweet. Wish we had a decent G1 Slipstream, but I'll have to enjoy my Prime line one.

Many more seeker color variations out there to do...

Just a quick addition, Dirge isn't a word relating to aircraft like the other coneheads are. Apparently Dirge is an actual word that is a type of sombre song. Despite this, Dirge's name seems to be a really clever pun. Dirigibility is a very obscure word that has a similar meaning to maneuverability, that is the ability to be steered or directed. An example of a word derived from this is a "dirigible", which was the word for airships like the Hindenburg. I've never heard a satisfying explanation for Dirge's name not being like the other coneheads, but I've come to the conclusion that it was just a really obscure pun.

Also nacelle is probably a French word, and if it is it probably has female conjugation. However we don't have that in English so people assuming it's a female name took me by surprise.

Just in case no one's posted it yet, Nacelle is already up for preorder on BBTS along with the rest of next year's subscription figures. Sorry if that spoils these 'reveals' but we did see them all at Botcon anyway, did we not?

I think Serpent.O.R. has been 'preorder-sold out' two or three times already!

Forgot to answer this. If the "Rainmakers" from 2013 are any indication, they're still good to go. Mind you, it's possible the mold has been repaired several times over like Classics Prime.

i heard some baaad things about the rainmakers, especially the joints that attach the wings to the body.

The trouble with the Hasbro mold of Thrust, the wing mount are so wonky that they tend to break off. The Japan mold is more tightly mounted.

Hope this mold doesn't have the same issues.

Surprise! Nacelle uses the BotCon 2007 Thrust wings, not the Gentei/Generations one. You can tell by the two prominent circles on each side:

Left: Generations, Right: BotCon 2007

I had no issues with the Botcon Rainmakers. That mold is unbreakable. I wouldn't even be surprised if there are a two of them. If CHMS could create the same mold through reverse molding, how hard can it be ? I had no issues with the CHMS Rainmakers quality wise either.

According to Jesse Wittenrich, there are hints in Nacelle's bio that imply him to be the barely visible fourth member of the "Welcoming Committee" from episode 1 of the G1 cartoon.

His name also fits with this group since he, Bitstream, and Hotlink are all named after Seekers from the Exodus novel.
