    Cool, I look forward to getting a full set of 9-10 seekers in this style! One step closer...

    Hell yeah! I was just thinking how I would like an Iron Factory Acid Storm. I have Sunstorm already and he's awesome.

    I hope Iron factory includes a set of wings with just red and white stripes. Just looking at this is reminding me of other Acid Storms I've stuck away and forgot about. I need the stiripey wings so he fits in with the other seekers.

    Looks like they took some styling from these two:

    I wonder if you'll be able to purchase him like the first three seekers or IF plans to spread the pieces out between other IF sets like War Giant.

    This looks nice but I figure I'll stop with the Coneheads. That's already plenty of jets for me, especially when I'm shelling out for War Giant. I wonder if this is going to be some sort of retailer or con exclusive? Suppose we'll see the blue one eventually, too.

    If it's in bits in Boxes of other stuff I'm going to buy anyway then fair enough, why not. But, I'm not buying another one. 7 is fine for now.

    Were there really only 200 Sunstorms made? I'll have to skip this guy if thats the case. I would like to be a completionist with these guys

    Sunstorm was also a build-a-figure with their Skywarp, Thundercracker, and Coneheads sets. So there will be much more than 200 IF Sunstorms made, just 200 of the individual packaged ones.

    @Ruizu1990 -

    *gasp* I noticed a bit ago, but did you have a change of heart? Collecting all these DW/IDW designs! Knew you couldn’t keep on hatin’ forever haha. Welcome!


    As for this release... why IF? Did all the past, poorly sold releases of different versions of Acid Storm, from many different lines, not make you think twice about maybe ... I don’t know ... working on a different figure or deco?

    Perfect! I was wondering if they would complete the Seekers.

    Hopefully sales will help fund a remold of Sideswipe into a Red Alert. Or a brand new mold.

    This looks very nice! I bit on the Sunstorm and bought their Starscream. Someone smack some sense into me to keep my focus on MP and IDW.

    If it helps you feel better, these Seeker designs are IDW so you're not straying out of your lane... ;)
