    I finally have all the seekers. Hasbro only, held on for so long. It's a good feeling not having to pay Ebay prices. Thundercracker was bought through HTS, but the rest of them were found at retail. Happy guy here!

    Lucky. I'm still trying to find Thundercracker. I didn't act quickly enough any of the times he was on HTS, and I'm still hoping to find him in stores somewhere. I've got everyone else, though. I got Ramjet and Thrust when they came out, Universe 2009 Starscream on eBay, Dirge on Amazon, and Skywarp on Craigslist.

    Got my G2 Ramjet two days ago, and should be getting my AM Thundercracker this Saturday to complete my set (20 Official and KO Sunstorm I think). Now I need to man-up and take the plunge for the KO Rainmakers, generic purple one, and KO Ghost Skywarp and T-Cracker and I will be happy enough. Damn them all for making so many variations of a mold and me wanting all the variations.

    I have 2 of the generic purple KOs (which I'm fighting the temptation to customize, for more show-accuracy), 25th Anniv. Universe Starscream (who's wearing the 3rd party Coronation upgrade kit), Henkei Starscream (bought when I couldn't decide which of the 2 looked best), Classics Skywarp (bought for his guns; see below), Henkei Ramjet, and Generations Thrust & Dirge. I just got in 2 TFCC G2 Ramjets, and I'm trying to gauge the market before I sell the 2nd. I'd get Thundercracker, but I can't decide which of the 3 versions looks best.

    My G1/G2 Seeker collection is a bit more ordered: I have at least one complete (or near-complete) version of the 6 from '84 and '85, G2 Ramjet (which I prefer to outfit with a surplus set of G1 RJ bombs instead of his '93 missiles), and Darkstar and Apparition -- 2 customs built from a surplus G2 Ramjet and Skywarp. Outside of them, I have near-complete spares of 4 of the planes, and a box full of spare parts (and finally the skill to swap in most of them).

    Nice. I've had all six Henkei for some time now (plus Ghost Starscream), and just got all six Hasbro last month with Thundercracker.

    It's definitely relieving to have a full set.

    How many 'Seekers' are there? I have quite a few and just wondering how many people would consider as having all of them.

    I have all the Hasbro releases including both SS's plus ko TC and 2011 Botcon TC. I would like for them to make a new seeker mold. I wouldn't mind going through that all over again.

    I had all of the 6 main Seekers when I bought the Botcon 07 set in February of last year (sadly, this was right -before- the price plumetted). Got Starscream, Skywarp, and Ramjet all at retail, plus Acid Storm. I then ended up buying Generations Dirge for his more accurate body and sharp colors. I've also bought the CHMS Sunstorm, G2 Ramjet, and SG Thundercracker. Unless Hasbro ends up canonizing more of the background guys like they did to the 'Storms, I'm happy to be done. They're great for group shots :)

    I only have two classics Seekers, lol. Henkei SS and Henkei Ramjet. Will get Thrust and Dirge later though, not rushing to buy them because I have higher priorities and they're shelfwarming every store in my area. I also saw Henkei Skywarp one or two years ago but passed.

    Stumbled upon Thundercracker a few weeks ago to replace the stand in I had painted years ago.

    Got to admit it really did feel like an insane accomplishment to have some how collected them with the Target exclusive Skywarp being the only exclusive figure in my set.

    I have all G1, including e-hobby Dark Starscream and Sunstorm, both G2 seekers, all six henkei, all six US / Botcon, shitty acid Storm (custom one day!), Classics / SG Action master 'Cracker and G2 Ramjet en route, all three Robot Masters, US MP Starsceam and Tak 'Warp and 'Cracker, the 3 Coneheads coming from iGear.
    Is that it? Too many seekers, thinking of selling the Henkei set.

    Six.

    Seven if you include Sunstorm. He's like the Green / White Power Ranger of the bunch.

    A lot of people like to throw in the "Rainmakers".

    Toy wise the list is endless with various repaints, G2 releases, KO's, Ghosts etc...

    Count me in for the whole set,and all mine were bought at retail,only took 4 years to complete them,now about TCracker I was a little worried I wouldn't find him but the day the DOTM stuff came out,so did he,my Wally World released 2 cases of the Warpath wave and I got 2 TC's out of the first case,and left the other case for the kiddies.

    Oh and a special thanks goes out to Hasbro for giving us fans Thrust,Dirge,and TC.

    Agreed, despite having shelled out for Botcon and Henkei I thought this was a class move, it showed Hasbro that there is demand for second and third tier characters rather than a legion of Bees and Primes. Hasbro have been good to us lately.

    I'll never understand the people that felt butt-hurt by the re-releases, I still have by Botcon '07 set and it looks great, having a £13 re-release in Toys R Us didn't hurt that.
