    With the new pics of the TF Universe Starscream with the G1-esque paint job, something has occurred to me. I can't stop buying the Classics Seeker mold. I buy the mainstream ones that are within my price range (therefore no Henkei Thundercracker or Skywarp or any of the Botcon seekers.)

    But, this mold and all of the repaints are so addictive. Best seeker mold ever and needles to say I'll be picking up the Universe Starscream.

    How long do you think it'll be before we see a G1-esque Skywarp single-packed in the universe line? I'm willing to bet it happens.

    What do you think about the on rush of Classics Seekers? Do you love them as much as I do?

    if i'm not mistaken, universe starscream seemed more g1 (kinda like henkei sans chrome) form those pics released. then again, hasbro always changes figs from the stock photos. i don't have any screamer mold and was thinking about henkei but now i might just get this. skywarp is my favorite seeker just because of his color scheme but henkei is too expensive, and its even expensive for a loose classics version so i am also hoping for a skywarp.

    I'm willing to bet they'll make the other 2 rainmakers also. Sunstorm is a must though, I really want him.

    Aside from the lack of knees, I've always liked the slavishly-G1 Robot Masters mold better.

    Are you guys talking about Starscream universe classics 1.0 figure? It sounds like you guys are talking about a brand new Starscream mold?? Sorry I have lame reading comprehension.

    I just picked up Acid Storm today. I have Skywarp and Starscream. Thundercracker will be on its way as soon as BBTS gets them in. And ill probably pic up the Starscream repaint and whatever repaint comes along.

    Why don't they do something with the conehead version of this mold. Kinda makes me sad they repaint the Starscream mold to hell but not repaint Skywarp to Dirge or Thrust.

    I have every version of this mold and love it! It is the best mold for the seekers that we have ever seen (my opinion of course) and I hope they put out a Sunstorm soon.

    i already have the henkei starscream so i'll pass on the universe starscream...and i'll probably get henkei TC and skywarp...but wat about dirge and thrust? the only way to get them is that stupid botcon "games of deception" thing? thats madness...they need to release those...the TFU set of Roadbuster Vs Dirge couldve done it, but no..they had to use some stupid cybertron mold for dirge...arrgh

    Yea, I'd totally give my middle nut for a Sunstorm repaint. Is anyone shelling out the $75 for the Henkei Thundercracker? I'm pretty back and forth about it because I'm already dropping close to $100 on the Magnus Upgrade. I'm trying to justify paying $75 for what i know it a $10 toy.

    Even though the Classics SS mould is kinda crappy, I would buy a mainstream Skywarp painted in the same G1-ish fashion as this SS repaint, simply because I love Skywarp.

    I would at least consider buying it, but as I'm happy with the one I have, there's a good chance I wouldn't buy it. I'd rather them make the other two Rainmakers and Sunstorm first, maybe even some of the other random colored Seekers, like the purple ones that showed up a decent amount of the time. Sadly I don't see this mold lasting too much longer. So many uses have got to be putting some strain on it. Would be cool if it turned out that they made several copies of the molds when they first made it.
