    when it comes down to the seekers, they've been done in quite a few ways. starscream redecos and retools, their own unique bodies, and clones. what style do you like? i like the idea of unique bodies but with helmets that look generally similar.

    Unique from each other

    Starscream should either look like his Cybertron version, Prime version, or a new version
    Thundercracker should look like the G1/Classics standard Seeker mold
    Skywarp should look like Armada Skywarp
    Thrust should look like Armada Thrust
    Dirge should look like the Classics Conehead mold
    Ramjet should look like Animated Ramjet
    Sunstorm should look like the WFC Seeker mold
    Acid Storm should look like Energon Starscream

    I prefer Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp having the same bodies and heads, and the Coneheads all being different (Ramjet with one set of big wings and a little booster engines, Dirge with two sets of smaller wings, and Thrust with VTOL thrusters). Basically just like in G1 or Classics.

    I prefer my Starscreams as larger than Megatron cybertronian jets with a crown and swords, Thundercracker as his own mold and Skywarp as some kind of exclusive.

    I rather see them with unique bodies and alt modes.

    Say like Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp. I would have Starscream much like his Prime self. But I have have Skywarp being more bulky and taller and turning into a F-117 Nighthawk. I would have Thundercracker turning into an A-10 Warthog and being more techy in look. I would have Ramjet turning into an WWII era plane with crash damage featured in both alt and robot modes.

    I just wouldn't do like G1 or Animated, I would have rather see them with their own designs, their own alt modes, being different sizes, and having different weapons base on how they act.

    I always loved what Don Fig did with the Seekers in the Dreamwave comics - at first glance, they all more or less looked like the repainted look-a-likes that we know, but each one actually had a slightly different body style from each other. I'd definitely count that as my fav interpretation thus far.

    I'd prefer them to be totally unique from each other. Not just distinct heads/wings, distinct molds entirely. I'm not a fan of buying the same mold twice, much less 6+ times. Plus, it robs them of a lot of character.

    I like what Movieverse was doing, giving Dirge, Starscream, and Thrust completely separate molds. I just can't get into what Classics or Animated were doing.

    Repaints of Starscream, with minor facial details to physically differentiate them.

    Maybe have each different, but similar enough to know them as Seekers. (The entire bunch. SS, TC, SW, Dirge, Thrust, Ramjet, AC, Sunstorm, and Slipstream)

    And Sunstorm would have a flamethrower.

    I like the G1 method but wouldn't mind if they could get three different transformation from one alt to be shared by the Seekers (SS, SW & TC) and do the same for the Coneheads (Dirge, RJ & Thrust). Sunstorm would use the SS version of first mode. And they could generics based on all transformation of both modes for six different looking Decepticon Air Warriors. And then do a Cybertronian jet with three different transformation for the Rainmakers. Probably have to be Voyager Class to work and would likely never happen.

    I really want a set of Cybertron mould voyagers :( 

    I don't feel the ideal mould has been made yet the Mp is to big and to fiddly and fragile the deluxe has design quirks and is to small - a Voyager/small Ultra would be nice... so long as they don't make a pigs ear out of like with Prime Dreadwing.

    I suspect Hasbro are no longer capable of making a decent seeker though due to all the cost cutting - and the use of horribly implements electronics on any larger toy.

    a Third party might offer something that has less fragility than a MP and more durability and play fun than the deluxes sometime. The hearts of steel ones have a lot right with them - but they are the wrong era really.

    I'd like to see TFC have a go at them - judging on the Aerialbots - I suspect they'd have a pretty good chance of getting it right.

    Same main body with different colors and new wings (Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet) if needed.

    This. Classics nailed it 100%, with the exception of the missing Sunstorm and potentially a Fitor repaint of Ramjet.

    Now we can only hope that we get a fair amount of Seekers from that sexy FOC Starscream mold.
