    The toy's mold is different, but he's a Decepticon F-15 with many similarities in transformation- look at the nosecone and vents on the shoulders.

    The wings are in the same position, but have a reversed orientation.

    Could Talon be the rarely-seen green Seeker?

    No, well, not really. A "Seeker" is a fan term describing a robot who shares the same base mould as Starscream.

    Incidently, that figure share's a coloursceme and head design with a larger jet-bot that would be later repainted into Starscream. But that's as close as it comes.

    I guess he's "related" to a seeker.:)

    yeah, technically nothing is a "Seeker".

    Actually IMHO I think any Con jet could be referred to as a "seeker". It's all up to the fan.

    So nothing...
    ...or everything!

    And yet, that makes total sense.

    Hell, give him a subclass like Attack Seeker or Scout Seeker. It's totally up to you.

    To me, he's a Predator, seperate from Seekers, which are elite Decepticons who function in small, special forces-type units.

    It's whatever you want it to be. If you want him to be the lost green seeker, then for you, he is.

    For me, there are only 6 seekers. Everyone else is just part of the DAF. Including a certain orange/yellow zealot....

    In a lot of ways, that sums up the fandom too.:lol
