    One of the new figures announced, Hubcap:

    and the unnamed seeker who Grindor tears apart in the UK Transformers movie magazine(Issue 2.3):

    I mean despite the colours, can anyone else make the connection, and maybe Hubcap is another seeker?

    Maybe. One of the Seeker pictures that Simmons had in the film was of a car similar to this one (a Ford Model T if my memory does not fail me). And that guy who made the digibash of Hubcap into some ZZ Top car or somethin' said that the robot mode head looked like it had a beard, which aligns with the 'old' aspect of the Seekers.

    Definitely not the same car, but I'd say close enough.

    Might be an idea for a repaint there. Did the 'seeker' appear in bot mode?

    Hubcap is such an awesome design. They should definitely flesh out his character in the comics. It's the one toy I can't wait for.

    No, he's inert like Jetfire was in the movie, so Grindor just chopped him up and took his insidey parts (like a memory tree as someone said, so they could try and find the matrix)

    Well Now I can look forward to another seeker in my collection anyway :D

    Would be a nice repaint. I must say, I like this mould.

    If he was a Seeker then wouldn't he be a Decepticon? The toy has an Autobot symbol. Sure G1 Hubcap was an Autobot, but that's just a nod to the name.

    I'm really not comfortable with the way the movieverse uses the term 'seeker'. Call me a gee-wunner, whatever, but a seeker should at the very least be some sort of flying decepticon.

    Could've pulled a Jetfire and switched sides. But that's just trying to find an answer to the problem.

    I thought seekers could be either faction?

    Were movie Seekers pre-faction?

    According to IDW, yes, but yet Jetfire etc had faction, my theory was that they were made pre faction, but decided for themselves if they would be Autobot or not
