    I just finished the novelization of the movie, and basically could not put it down for the second half of the book. Something that stood out though, and I marked it to double check later on and then figured I would post here and get other opinions, is when they found Jetfire in the Smithsonian.

    Before they reached the Smithsonian and revived Jetfire, Wheels (Wheelie in the movie) revealed that there were 10 Seekers on planet Earth with the closest to their location being Jetfire in DC. After Jetfire and crew get to Egypt, another Transformer shows up, a Decepticon biplane (Ransack maybe?!? as it is never mentioned by name) and Jetfire discusses that he is a fellow seeker, that is of course after destorying him.

    Who are the other 8 Seekers?!? According to the book, they can be either Autobot or Decepticon. Any theories would be great

    Wow dude seriously thats a wsome to find out!!
    i heard the rumor that ransack was gonna be in the movie and serious i hope he is even if it is a brief cameo im guessing that there will be multiple starscream seekers 4 or 5 all together and the rest are the fellow decepticons im really thinking there all decepticons unless it states there are some of each side...

    but seriously sounds bad ass!!

    In TF3, I hope we see Starscream with Thundercracker and Skywarp. Plus Ramjet, Dirge, Thrust. Sunstorm and Acid Storm also maybe. The female seeker Slipstream is also interesting. TF2 has started the trend of using repaints in the movies to save on CGI work.

    I inferred Seeker to be something totally different, not the jets of the Decepticon Army per se, but TFs who mission was to locate, or seek, items that had been lost, i.e the Matrix or the Machine

    Maybe seekers are mostly Jets who are indeed seeking something.

    Seekers in the film continuity are/were looking for the Harvester. Hence 'Seekers'

    So not necessarily "Jets" although the only 2 we have seen so far were a biplane and a Blackbird. Any ideas who the others might be?

    In the movie, seekers are all old guys so maybe other seekers are guys like Vector Prime or Sentinel Prime or Kup.

    seekers in the movieverse according to defiance comic were some of the first transformers after the primes that could actually transform. their jobs were to search the universe for suns that the primes could harvest to power up the all spark.

    I doubt Starscream and/or his pals are considered seekers, they aren't ancient. But it would be cool if the jets were descendants of seekers. As for who they are Vector Prime and Sentinel Prime are cool choices.

    We had BETTER get a look at Skywarp and Thundercraker would be cool too. The others I am not too concerned about.

    Kinda of how they describe them in the book as well. According to Wheels discussion with Sam, Mikela, etc, they are OldOldOld Transformers who Seek. This came up as a possible translator for the symbols Sam is seeing.

    And actually, it came up there were 10 Seekers in the United States, with the closest to them in DC, as they were in NYC at the time

    If the 13 primes are like the apostles, maybe the seekers are like the early church fathers.
    The 13 primes are also like Adam and Eve, so maybe the seekers are the children like Cain and Abel.
