    Is there any possible way to do it? Is it posseble that if the demand is high enough they would release them at least as a store or clube exclusivs? What if we started a pittition to get them, let them know we want them. I mean this is the first time we've seen all six seekers get made since G1. I know hasbro said that they don't like to use the same mould over and over, witch we all know is total Bull S**t, But what if we don't take no for an awnser. what if they gave them new paint decals that fall in line with the classics, or gave dirge his G1 wings?

    Not all of us can make our own, I cant make my own because i can't find starscream or ramjet anywere, and if i could i wouldn't know how to mould new wings for thrust.

    Online Petitions do nothing.

    The seekers were a Botcon exclusive, it would be really asshat-ish of Hasbro to turn round and say, "y'know those toys you paid about $350 for, the exclusives, were gonna stick 'em on the shelves for $10 each".

    I couldnt go to Botcon, and never in my wildest dreams could I afford the exclusives.
    Get over it, move on, feel better for it.

    I still don't see why they can't just make totaly different molds for them. Maybe some F-22-ish jets, and just give them the names. I'm tired of the seekers (I hate that name) always being based off Starscream. Yeah, I know; "STFU!1! The SeEkers must always BE teh same wit hdifferent Wingz and Coneh eadz!" But it's not cost effective. I love transforming jets, but having the same one over and over is boring. Plus, it's not like you need them.


    Beides, if you're desperate, make your own.

    There's no way to get Thundercracker, Dirge, and Thrust released to the public, unless you're rich and you have the cash to get the Botcon set.

    In any case, NO.

    They are only toys you'll live without them.



    And if you can't you can always kitbash/repaint.

    Okay, there's no way to get THOSE versions of Thundercracker, Dirge or Thrust released to the public for Classics. They were made as convention exclusives and they're going to stay that way. As someone who managed to get a set I honestly couldn't care if they were released or not to mass retail as I'd like everyone to have a chance at these things, but Hasbro made an agreement with FP and that agreement needs to be honored.

    Now, what I see as a viable option maybe in another year or two would be for them to do an all new mold (based on another type of jet... maybe an F-22 as someone suggested) and do them in more show accurate colors and decaling with the character names. Of course, the problem is that people would than want all six seekers again from this mold (because the fans can't get enough seekers apparently) and if you think that they wouldn't do a Starscream first out of any new Seeker mold they made (even though we already have a Classics Starscream) you're deluding yourself. So, while there's ways for them to do it, I'm not sure Hasbro is interested in going there. Only time will tell and, honestly, the only one of those three characters that's even remotely well enough known outside this fandom to honestly warrant a consideration (IMPO) would be Thundercracker. Dirge and Thrust had horrid characterizations, but than again so did Ramjet and he got a normal release. Again, only time will tell though, but I'm going to lean in the not anytime soon direction if ever.

    They can. This is the only way we'll ever see them in the classics/universe line. if they're completely new molds.

    You know what I would buy?...


    ...A set of, ugh, seekers where each one was a different mold/jet.


    That would be soooo cool.

    You know, that would be pretty cool if they ever did that. I'm not sure they would though given their pention for repainting every mold at least once. Though, I suppose they could give us all six seekers by doing three different jets with one repaint each. That might work.

    I'm willing to beat though we'll see a Classics Sunstorm at some point.

    Probably in the new Universe line. Didn't Hasbro say that the first wave will at least see a couple of repaints from the original Classics line? I seem to remember reading that somewhere.

    Well, let's look at what we have:

    Starscream: Sunstorm, generic light purple seeker & green unnamed seeker.
    Ramjet: Not much aside fromt the above.
    Astrotrain: They could do an anime accurate one, but I remember them saying that he didn't sell well so they hadn't considered repainting him.
    Rodimus: He's too Rodimus to be anything else... though I suppose they could to that one Target Master... Pointblank. He had a similar 'futuristic car mode' and his toy head look similar to Rodimus'.
    Grimlock: I have no idea on this one.
    Bumblebee/Cliffjumper: Hubcap easy. Goldbug with some remolding and even Bumblejumper (for some reason fans like him). Even Tap-Out and Glyph (old convention exclusives) would be nice.
    Mirage:Joyride (Powermaster) or Sure Shot (Targetmaster).

    Outside of that I'm not sure what they could do.

    didnt think of the BB repaints. Maby they could do a G2 commemrative type of thing with grimlock, starscream, and ramjet.

    Probably won't do a Mirage repaint since he was/is a pegwarmer.

    I always thought they should repaint Rodimus or another one of the Classics cars and name him Thrust, Dirge, or TC just to screw with people. I'd buy it just for that. XD
