    Howdy all,

    Just came across these while on a business trip, bought a box for myself (they were not cheap about 2,100 yen a piece)

    The shop owner only had the one box, and I got a solid assortment of actual seekers, on the box of the box of six they show others, clear versions and such.

    Each box has six "random" seekers.

    The jets are scaled about 2/3rds the size of the G1 originals (I use my poor accessory-less Starscream for scale). They come with all their accessories and stickers and a generic instruction manual that is the same for each. They ARE die-cast! (Even the wheels on the front landing gear) and the missile launchers fire TINY missiles.

    Enjoy the pics.

    Aren't they the ones we saw on eBay and were debating whether they were upscaled WST?

    Very cool. Probably the perfect size for Classics Thrust and Dirge, if you didn't get the BotCon ones.

    China, Hong Kong to be specific. I am certain they are knock-offs to some degree, they are not up-scaled World's Smallest, but they are not 100% accurate to the G1 either. (Though far closer to the g1 then World's Smallest).

    Next to the Micromaster Constructicons or Aerialbots, perhaps. These are a lot smaller than the Classics.

    If any of you want a specific picture, just ask, I'll shoot it and post it for you. I am far from an expert on this. But I can take a picture and let you all figure it out.

    I was thinking for wing switch-outs. Would these work for that?

    ....It's been forever since I had a G1 Seeker in hand. How tall are the knock offs?

    Also, LOL at Sunstrom

    Here's hoping the Botcon classic exclusives get knocked off so the rest of us can have some Classic Seeker sets without the high price of ebay scalping! Boo exclusives! The only people who profit are the scalpers!

    Nice find!

    My condolences on being saddled with "Sunstrom" instead of Skywarp. though. :)

    Those are sweet. I wonder how bad the price will be when they hit eBay.
