    aka the Eradicon's that turned into Cybertronian jets rather than the sleek car-mode.

    Personally I'm a fan of the Eradicon's, but prior to the last episode of TFP I was only expecting the car one's. Having variations of these Stormtrooper-like clones was a nice surprise. What do you guys/gals think?

    I'm hoping that when they go to do the toys for them, that they do both the car and jet variations. Would be nice to have two Eradicons without needing to buy the same exact figure twice.

    If they do the jet variations again in the future, then it's more likely we'll see them in toy form as well, if it was a one-shot deal, then less likely.

    There's actually three Eradicon types. The cars, miners (which lack car kibble it seems) and the jets.

    If Hasbro's plan do do this show for 4-7 seasons pans out, I'm sure we'll see all three of these variations as toys, and maybe more. I would kind of like to see aquatic units eventually.

    Are the cars & jets the same robots, because to me the jets look like the cars with a sort of "flight pack" added on.

    They could be the eradicons cybertron mode. Whatever man, I effing love the eradicons. Theyre like the awesome lovechildren of lockdown and a cylon. I hope theres giant brute eradicons, stealth eradicons, snow eradicons, lava eradicons... just think of your average video game enemy heirarchy (Boss eradicons, fuck yeah!) and you'll get what i mean.

    I would buy sixty snow Eradicons. I get innapropriately excited when intellectual properties I enjoy release toys of snow-themed characters and vehicles.

    Why aren't there any good still images of the Air Eradicons?

    I remember those one's, but honestly couldn't remember if they looked any different or not. The more variations to the con's clone army, the better, imo.

    I personally don't think so. their bot-modes are mostly the same, but they definitely transformed into complete jet-modes.

    I have a bad feeling they might have been a one-time deal (same might be true for the mining one's). I hope we'll see more of them throughout the series, but I wouldn't be surprised if the main focus of them ends up being the car variation, since that's what we've seen the most of, and was the only version of them we saw before-hand.

    I don't have good screen capture programme on the Computer I have the Video programme that can run the hires on so I can't easily chop a picture.

    But if anyone can post some screen captures that would be good.

    I'd love to see some Eradicons turn into insects. I love evil insect Transformers.

    I could see them doing different Eradicons to act as troops for the different Decepticon characters. It just seems a bit silly that a flyer like Starscream would have to wait for his troops to drive to him each time.

    Well, there were a lot of generic fliers in WFC.

    And they could give it a twist.... TFP Starscream in purple?

    From BM I do recall there being several types of drones in that series introduced some at the beginning, some at the end, and some that where toy only. So it is a safe bet we might get some variations in Prime.

    I have a feeling they just modified some of the existing E-con CGI models with wings for robot mode and modified Megatons GCI vehicle mode into a generic, We don't get any clear shots of these guys in ether mode, and we sure don't get a transformation. Maybe well see true flying E-cons introduced as new drones later as the series progresses.

    This.


    I seriously hope that we see many different types of Eradicons and get figures of each type. I will so buy a whole bunch of them!

    That's what I was thinking as well. But I do like my cons in purple :D 

    As others have said, I would like to see both flying and auto drones, guess we better keep our fingers crossed.

    I was thinking about Lockdown the other day, and I came up with a cool way they could introduce him into TFP, and have him connected to the Eradicons. The car-ones do, imho, look a lot like him. Basically have him be the Jango Fett to their Clone/Storm Trooper-ness.
