    Hopefully the Takara heads will be able to fit on their guys, because i very much doubt they will be making better faces.

    The feet, shoulders, and biceps are also the wrong shapes. They still look good though.

    I wonder why everyone and their dog decided to mount Dirge's Wing on his Legs when the G1 Toy has them mounted to his hips and the G1 cartoon model seems to have them draped down like a cape sometimes and attached to he legs at other times.

    I think having them articulated and hanging down on his back would be an interesting alternative take on the idea if only as it would stop him having those wings get in the way - that most people making a Dirge don't even articulate much to get them out of the way.

    Close enough is good for me.

    Not quite. The YM Thrust was able to move up as high has MP Starscream, which is what I prefer.

    I'm in a bit of a quandary with these guys. I feel like the Maketoys mould is clearly the best Seeker mould so far, I've already replaced my TT Starscream and will almost certainly get a Thundercracker to go with my KBB Skywarp. But the coneheads... I dunno, I really don't enjoy getting loads of repaints/retools.

    Just looking at his back profile but it is really odd that if they wanted to I think they could do this with the coneheads and make them very clean. I really wish G1TransformerMod could make the buttflap alternative available because we could get close to this profile. Outside of the folding parts that plug into the back of the thrusters and the part behind the cockpit that splits apart it could look exactly like this for all of the coneheads. Thrust is my favorite so hoping for deep burgundy and black profile but betting I get red and grey. Love Thrust, Blue Thundercracker, and Skywarp. Those were always my favorites. The wing profile on Ramjet always reminded me of the Firefox movie so I thought that was cool. Similar to GI Joe Night Raven.

    Cool. I agree. When will those buttflap mods for Meteor and co. be available for purchase?

    G1TransformerMod did one for himself but I don't believe he was selling them. It required a mod of the flap piece and a new hinge system. I hope someone makes it possible. I would do it with all of them.

    From these shots, the face looks better than Meteor’s already. That’s good news.

    Glad I'm not the only one! I like to have Thrust's wings up over his shoulders and so will be keeping my Yes Model Thrust for sure, despite some of the failings it inherited from the TT mold I'm quite happy with it. These MT Seekers are generally too 'toony for me but I might be interested in picking up their Dirge, I think the MT sculpt suits him pretty well. It's probably the best effort I've yet seen regarding what to do with his wings. When it comes to repaints/retools, I also like to inject a little variety by getting molds from different companies where possible.

    Hmm, they have the "big giant bomb" style arm guns. I'd actually prefer the more traditional "null ray" style Seeker guns for robot mode, but I otherwise like what I see. I do wish MT had given Starscream, Skywarp, and Thundercracker the shin thrusters after seeing them on these guys.
