    EDIT 8/28/2016

    --

    From the comic that comes with Striker Manus, they teased Meteor (Starscream), Skycrow (Skywarp), Lightning (Thundercracker) and Pursuer (Ramjet? Drift? someone else?) These don't seem to be the MP G1 Seekers mode Maketoys is doing OR the MP Cybertron Seeker mold either. It's a THIRD Maketoys Seeker!

    Many of them seem to be wielding weapons made from DEAD DINOBOTS!

    The names are all familiar...

    Meteor seems to share a name with Howling Meteor (MP G1 Starscream) and Galaxy Meteor (MP Cybertron Starscream), Skycrow is a name that has been mentioned in FansProject fiction a LOT, and Lightning is the old name for iGear's MP THundercracker.

    I'm interested to see what these look like if they're made, as I need/want Voyager Seekers on my shelves.

    All this shows me is:

    1. Third parties can't come up with new ideas
    2. Our fan base doesn't accept new ideas easily

    Yeah, because we have so many Voyager sized Cybertronian Seekers with Dinobot weapons already... ???

    As long as every re-do of a seeker is DIFFERENT, I'm fine. I just hate seeing 5 companies making near-identical MP Seekers.

    Nice, looks like Gundam crossed with Transformers.
    Really nice modernization.

    Think I'll need to get these !!!
    Love how they inverted the wings, similar to Skyfire.
    And if that's Ramjet, he also looks quite slick !!

    Makes me think about how the new Voltron was designed with the wings down instead of outwards.
    Love it !!

    Why is this a revelation? Anybody who spends anytime on this forum can easily see that point two is legit. I don't know if Third Parties can't come up with new ideas, I think its more will the new ideas sell. Fansproject has Steelcore. Its crappy that the fan-base does not accept change.

    Seekers with weapons made from dead Dinobots? Metal.

    I wonder if the Dinobot bits fit on the FansProject Dinobots to make them more G1 looking. I know, crazy idea!... hmm....

    And his shoulder and one "wing," for some reason. Like a hunter wearing a lion's mane after a kill, I guess?

    GRIMLOCK NOOOOOOOOOO! :cry 
    In all seriousness these look pretty cool. I like a lot of the new takes on familiar concepts the Cross Dimension line is giving us.

    Grimlock is a point one percenter, so I guess it would be good armor. Now I want a member of the DJD wearing a buffalo bill style overlord suit.

    Skycrow is a perfectly reasonable name. Nailed it. 10/10.
    He can hang out with Groundbear and Oceantuna.

    But yes, the designs are legit cool.

    Just realized that the chance for MT to make CHUG Dinobots just went out the window. Bastards.

    I'd be ok with this being a reasoning for stopping the fp LER line cold with the reasoning "they dead."

    That's not Grimlock's "wing". That's his Dino head! :eek:
