    Just seen this post on KOToys, paint samples of the tail fins from the upcoming Solid Rainmakers using the CHMS mold. (The CHMS mold is what was used for the high quality Skywarp, Ghost Stascream, Purple Seekers and both the yellow and orange Sunstorms.) It's only the tail fins but you can see the yellow, blue, and green they plan on using for the rest of the figures. As long as it uses the CHMS mold, I can see these being a huge hit verses their GID counterparts.

    Cool! My Purple, Yellow and Orange versions are on their way, if the quality is good on those 'll be very tempted to get the Rainmakers too.

    I just got those in last week (minus the orange one) and was :bay  BLOWN AWAY :bay  by them, I was expecting something along the quality of the KOLD-style Seeker releases (not that those are bad IMO), but was totally caught off guard by the quality. Just make sure you pay attention when you open them, some of the missiles weren't secured all the way and somehow I lost a missile to the Yellow Sunstorm. :/

    Don't see much point to the yellow one after the release of the yellow and silver seeker a few weeks ago. But I'm liking the green and blue colors they've picked so far.

    What I really wanna know about is this supposed Slipstream that a few folks name-dropped around the time the Clone Air Warriors were shown off, but nobody's said another word since.

    The point is that I now need a yellow seeker because the yellow and silver seekers (Sunstorm v1) forearms were painted. This made the forearms bigger, which in turn prevented the arms from bending. I bent those stiff arms anyway, a few hours later... CRACK! The right arm broke clean off at the front shoulder plate.

    Slipstream and AM Thundercracker should be after the Rainmakers. Also the black Starscream.

    Those look lovely. Can't wait until they're released. If I can coax my wallet out of hiding I will grab all three!!! Guess I have to re-name Acid Storm though!

    Wonder if we will get a KO Shattered Glass Dirge?

    Yes, after rainmakers, there will be more seekers coming. But unfortunately, we have to wait till mid-late march because of the Chinese new years..

    I plan on leaving Acid Storm's name alone and renaming the taffy colored one.
