    Hmmm. Possible to make using bits from a few different seekers. Interesting.

    Yeah, using TC & SW can give you that effect. Doesn't look official.

    Hey, he could go the extra mile and use the black painted chests of the Coneheads for an all black Jet.

    "Stealth plastic." Bet you that gives it a radar cross-section a few inches across...

    I was thinking the same thing, but this guy calls him Nemesis (way original, I know), so I wasn't sure if maybe this was a Japanese exclusive Ive never seen or what.

    I'd call KO but the wings are different than the all-black KO one... Odd.

    This reminds me of one of my more tantalizing pet projects for the future - taking a Virulent Clone and Botcon Buzzclaw or Dirge, and creating an all-black Buzzclaw. I've tested it with some of the ball-jointed parts, and it looks good in theory from those bits alone. Someday...

    It's probably a custom parts-swap the guy's done twice; there's no credible reason to think he somehow has a prototype figure that's never been discussed before.

    Didn't know there was a black seeker KO. Pics of that anywhere?

    FIRST-GEN, your sig pic makes me want to march around in circles for hours and get told what to do until 1600.

    I've actually been planning to do just that for a while. I'm all about the easy custom seekers. Paint up some Thrust wings to match Dirge and boom. Slap Ramjet wings on the excess Thrust body and bam. Do..something with the remaining Dirge wings and Ramjet body, probably paint the Dirge wings black or somethin'. I even swapped out the teal bits on G2 Ramjet with corresponding black parts and plan to paint some '84 wings to sorta get the purple 'drone' seeker, even if it's a little too dark.

    Always wanted to use an '85 chest piece and Thundercracker's tailfins and rearrange a Skywarp into what you describe. Probably have enough seeker bits to do it by now.

    yea i was just going to say, can't you just swap parts and get that? i mean i've been planing on doing something similar myself, with thundercrackers and skywarps to build up my con forces lol it's nothing special. i don't get how they can prove it's not just that.

    Have no idea, but it'll be cool to add to a seeker collection to have +1 on everyone else.
