    First there were the original three, then the coneheads, then Sunstorm joined the ranks of accepted seekers, and Acidstorm got a figure so became official. Is Slipstream, with her animated incarnation and inclusion in the WFC game now one of the recognised group of seekers?

    I think because she exists in Animated she pretty much already became 'official' ;) ..but yeah, her appearance in WFC only helps to officially deem her a stayer.

    Yeah, definitely. Hey, if some douche like Acid-Storm is official, then Slip-Stream is.

    I'd say yes, if anything she's another way Hasbro could get more mileage out of every Seeker mold simply by retooling the head.

    I don't see why she wouldn't be, so yeah, she's officially a seeker.

    What makes a seeker a seeker? There are a lot of aircraft in Transformers but not all of them are called seekers.

    Then why is Thrust, Dirge, and Ramjet called seekers? They don't look like clones to me as they have different wings and tails.

    I try to ignore Animated, but the more seekers the better I suppose.

    That's why they're called Coneheads.

    I'd say she's a seeker.

    She also has glowy bits on her butt.

    I think she is her own designation... A lighter more stealthy next gen seeker... called a "SNEAKER?"

    Yes, but the body itself is exactly the same. Is this... really a difficult concept all of the sudden? It's been a pretty consistent theme for 25 years!

    Wow I'm the only person who voted no so far?

    I don't consider her a seeker. The seekers work as a team... from what tiny fic she has she's often going solo or working with characters not part of the seekers and does not really spend much time with the others (saying that in animated the seekers were week as hell any way) in WFC she's never mentioned as a seeker and looks a great deal different and is clearly more then just SS with a bust

    I actually think classing her as a Seeker limits her possibility's. If she is always just SS with boobs then she cant really grow past that as SS will always be the point of reference for every thing about her. In WFC they changed her more into something unique and IMO opened more doors... shame as a design is not very original

    Well the WFC helped to clear up what Seeker means,but I think they pulled the inspiration from ROTF,in MP on WFC,the Starscream chassis is titled Energon Seeker.

    But yes I would say Slipstream is an official Seeker now.

    So, do you not count Sunstorm as a Seeker either? In his most prominent appearance (the Dreamwave stuff), he was unlike any other Seeker, definitely worked alone. But he was obviously in Starscream clone (in fact, he was an ACTUAL clone, not just a body double!).

    In Animated, Slipstream seemed to work with the other jets just fine. She was a bitch to them, but she still worked with them.

    I don't believe in the afterlife, so I might as well be as nerdy as I can while I'm still here.
