    So I was able to pick up Acid Storm and Galvatron yesterday, and after reading Acid Storms bio, i was really intrigued about his belonging to a covert group called the Rainmakers. Do you think there is any chance we will see more?

    (hopefully not in a Botcon exclusive set. I still haven't forgiven you for the other seekers 'Bro!!)

    Maybe not the same mold, but that its sounds awesome. Rainmakers? It reminds me of a heavy bombing, so mabey a fleet of bumbers with little scouts such as Acidstorm

    Not really. I may get Acid storm to repaint, but as it stands I don't see why they would keep using that mould. How long will the mould hold up after so many releases and repaints? *remembers Bendy Prime and Nemesis prime*

    I'd love for Hasbro to give us at least one more Rainmaker and Sunstorm, if not both of the remaining Rainmakers and Sunstorm. If they don't I'll more than likely kitbash them (it's what I've done for the other Seekers). They could put them in Target two packs with Red Alert and Smokescreen retools/repaints of Silverstreak and Sideswipe, and I'd still be happy. Then have Wheeljack be another wide release retool/repaint of the Sunstreaker mold.

    I only care about Sunstorm, but if they make the others I'm sure I'll get them just to complete the collection.

    I wouldn't mind. I'd be better than customizing my own. Plus, with Acid Storm out, i'd prefer that they complete the others as well, for completion sake.

    Well with dirge coming out in the voyager cyb starscream mold. (target 2 pack) I'd suggest they use that for the other two rainmakers. To lesson the mold degradation on the classics version which some people have reported as a possibility after noticeing some issues with acid storm. (can't recall specificly) To me it would get some more heavy units in the mix and make it a little easier to display all the seekers at once if a few are taller.

    my 2 cents.

    I think it would be weird to have one rainmaker in earth mode and the other two in cybertronian. Though I would have went for all three in cybertronian mode. Though a lot of fans hate the mold i would dig cybertron thundercracker as a rainmaker

    If they use the superior Ramjet mold, I might pick them up. Do them as the Starscream mold and meh.

    I'd buy them assuming there are only two more to complete them. I'm hoping one of them is Sunstorm (Finally).

    I'm still surprised that Hasbro gave us a rainmaker before we got a Sunstorm... UNLESS IT"S PART OF THE 2009 BOTCON SET OH NOZZEEESSS!!!!

    Either way I'm a sucker for the classics starscream mold.

    Sunstorm isn't a Rainmaker. The other two are colored yellow and a blue-ish gray. Sunstorm was inspired by one of the randome colored seekers that was orange. Unlike the random seekers, the Rainmakers actually had a real reason for being on the show, though till now none of them had names. Personally I'd much rather see one or both of them be made from the Ramjet mold. Not only would it be weird for two of them to have Cybertronian alt-modes, but even weirder that they are Voyagers while Acid Storm is a Deluxe. That and I'd rather have a little mold degeneration than buy two of that mold. One for a kitbash is enough for me (though I would consider buying it in Skywarp colors).

    I don't really care about the actual "Rainmakers," per se, but I DO want more Classics Seeker repaints. Primarily Sunstorm, but others would be welcome too. If they have to call them Rainmakers to shoehorn them into G1, that's fine... but I don't think they should be limited by it. I'd love to see some randomly-colored NEW-character Seekers.

    Sadly, I doubt the Classics Seeker mold will hold up to much more re-use. I hope they squeeze out a few more before it is too degraded. I wonder if Hasbro makes spare, backup molds for Seekers, knowing that they have a high chance of being repainted? I doubt it, but it would be nice.
