    Hey, I'm trying to get a full set G1 seekers. I see an auction for the TRU reissue of Dirge. Was that reissue the same mold as his 1985 release or did he get some retooling like some other TRU reissues?

    He's the same as the original. No retooling on the missiles (that's were TRU decepticon planes were retooled, as I recall). Maybe different shade of plastic for the cockpit.

    Like they said. Of the seeker jets released under the Hasbro 'Commemorative Series', Dirge has the least amount of change from the original article.

    The wing pegs are longer so the wings don't sit as tight to the plane body as the original....as with all TRU reissue seekers.

    I have been looking to complete my G1 seeker set as well I think I am going to wait as see what Takara brings us from the encore line before I spend to much on Ramjet & Thrust.

    I think that's a very good bet. If Encore continues to thrive, Ramjet, Thrust and Dirge will be along soon I am sure. I have the originals, but as I'm collecting all of Encore, I'd probably pick up the reissues too!

    That's the only change to the G1 molds that dosn't matter to me as it makes display in robot mode a little easier. Thankyou all.
