    Here's what I was thinking. What if Hasbro made more Rainmakers? I think it would be pretty neat. So I thought up a couple, and wanted to see if you guys had any ideas for different ones.

    Now, onto my ideas!

    Name: Hail Storm
    Colour: Lavender

    Name: Sea Storm
    Colour: Turquoise

    Name: Fire Storm
    Colours: Orange and Red

    Let's see what you guys can come up with!

    If Hasbro doesn't give us any more of them, here's what I'm planning to kitbash them as.

    Lighting Storm- Yellow/Desert-ish camo

    Thunder Storm- Blue/Grey/Winter-ish camo

    I'm hoping that Hasbro gives us at least one more Seeker repaint, and that it's Sunstorm.

    Do they have to be Rainmakers? I'd fancy a white-and-grey Arctic camo Seeker named Wind Chill. Maybe something along these lines (taken from an RC model site):

    The same site also had a cool red-deco F-15 model, a much brighter red than Thrust. The TF Wiki mentions that in at least one shot, a red Rainmaker is shown as well (just an animation mistake, of course, not that it matters). I think something like this would make a cool generic Seeker:

    Names/Colors:
    Acid Storm - green camo (already being made)
    Sunstorm - Orange
    Ice Storm - pale blue
    Thunder Storm - blue with yellow details
    Plasma Storm - purple with black details.

    Weapons:
    Acid Storm - Acid Spray.
    Sunstorm - flamethrowers and fire missiles/bombs.
    Ice Storm - Cryonic Pulse Blaster (freeze ray).
    Thunder Storm - Lightning Cannon.
    Plasma Storm - Plasma Cannon with EMP modes.

    Abilities:
    Acid Storm - Acid Rain
    Sunstorm - Heat Waves/Droughts
    Ice Storm - Snow/Blizzards/Hail storms
    Thunder Storm - Severe Electrical storms to keep enemies grounded
    Plasma Storm - Severe Ionic Disturbances to down satellite systems etc.

    I think they'd be cooler with the subfaction name "Stormbringers". They could be a team of Elite Seekers who cause as much devastation as possible under the guise of mother nature to cause collateral damage to an opponent's forces/assets without alerting them to the presence of the Decepticons.

    well there's only 3 Rainmakers, anything else is just a plain drone seeker. I made my own purple one already, and named it Microburst (which IS a type of storm). I figure Hasbro will screw up Sunstorm and make him yellow instead of orange, so I'll end up getting two of those, painting one orange to be my real Sunstorm, and then the other can be my final Rainmaker seeker. hehehe

    I like the idea of taking the three acid storm fellas and giving them unique identities!

    We've got a Yellow, Green, and Blue... Green already has a name, and there's already a ...uh...Sunstorm... I liked Thunder Storm for the yellow one, and Ice Storm for the blue one... but that's just me.

    Oh man, I wet em. :lolol 

    I still have my Masterpiece Starscream and Skywarp, with a slightly repainted Greenscream standing in as Thundercracker -- the nice thing about him is that in the right light he's just blue enough to pass as blue... sort of.

    But with the advent of a true MP Thundercracker coming out in a few months, I think that... when I put MP:TC and Greenscream next to each other, he's gonna look VERY green by comparison, so I think he's going to become my stray dog Acid Storm character...sort of hanging out in the background.

    I'm not dedicated enough to craft a Sunstorm or a...uh... Purple Rain. :lol
