    Amen to that. I love that we got two different but excellent takes on the Seekers, and with them done in that way I don't need these Characters done as Legends ever again. It's great (and rare) in this Hobby when you can actually look at a part of your collection and call it completed.

    Viva DX9 AND Iron Factory.

    I've never been one for the "ghost" Starscream. I don't get it. Is it a generational thing? I was older during G1 but loved a lot of other stuff but the "ghost" bit never clicked with me. Glad for those who want it though. Now make the rainmakers or welcoming committee, I'm in. Any word on those possible repaints? Easy money for DX9 (and IF I suppose).

    His appearance as a ghost lasted a bit longer than his appearance with coronation gear. There's that at least.

    And managed to cross over into Beastwars. Part of the reason I am going to hold on to the Iron Factory Ghost Starscream is to arm him with the targetmaster Waspinator that was packaged with the Hastak Starscream.

    Nice, I admit I never got into that era of Legends. The target masters seemed to drive the price up to where even though I liked them I might as well get another deluxe. Didn't expect to be looking at stuff like this back then. :)

    I noticed on my seekers that several have one glossy thruster and one dull thruster. Are all six of mine misasembled? Or that just a wierd quirk of the first run?

    The thrusters that form the robot heel? None of mine are glossy.

    I haven't been following this thread but was drawn to pictures of the Ghost version. I hear transparent plastic can potentially be brittle, compared to the usual stuff. Can anyone vouch for this or is it pretty solid on the DX9? I have KBB MP11 size seekers and other Masterpieces so that's the comparison I'd be able to make. Apologies if this has already been mentioned

    Is the display stand with ghost starscream sold any other way? I thought dx9 said it was coming soon but I haven't seen anything else since then.

    I have a small number of clear TFs. I've never had any of them fair any worse than their opaque counterparts.

    I noticed that on my Ramjet, unsure of the others. One thruster is black and the other is grey. Kinda noticeable on him since he has a lot of black parts..

    Hm, i guess they put the wrong Thrusters on some of the feet. Oh well most of the time it's hidden behind the foot anyway.

    5/6 of mine have that too, with Starscream having matching ones. Its not a part I see and the colour is close enough not to bother me, though it is odd.
    The conehead set BSK looked at had one finished and one plain shoulder on thrust. Random batch of unfinished parts sneaking into assembly I guess.

    I would love to see DX9 give us some MP scaled seekers!
