    About damn time! Was worried these weren’t going to happen! Never ended up getting Skywarp from TT, so super excited to get a seeker that matches Meteor!

    I'd love to see a lighter painted face included with one of the other Seeker releases.

    Don't these come with swappable faces? Or do you mean still darker than these ones, but not crazy dark like the Meteor ones?

    Yeah, usually when I have multiple options for remolded characters I try to get different versions, like MMC for Inferno and Maketoys for Grapple or Takara Ironhide and Voodoo Ratchet... but Meteor is so much better than MP-03 and MP-11 I'm going to have to go with Maketoys for all three.

    I just felt that Starscream's face was bit dark and it would be nice if they included an extra face for him that was a tad lighter but not as light as Skywarp and TC's.

    The other two look even better than Starscream, but I ordered Meteor as a birthday present to myself. I already have KBB Thundercracker...Skywarp has to wait for the next seeker mold.

    I wish Skywarp had purple hands.

    Could someone please do a weight comparison of Galaxy Meteor and G1 Meteor?

    So I just got this thing in today. I was initially put off by the super toon deco...... but I have to admit: I really love this thing. Empty wings and finicky tailfins be damned. What a great figure!

    The purple hands would be nice...but it isn't a deal breaker.

    I have a feeling they saved some money and the hands are a part of a mold piece with other black pieces.

    It's still weird, though, because Skywarp's purple parts are all Starscream's blue and Thundercracker's black parts, and we know from Starscream that they're unpainted parts. You'd think they'd just have to use purple plastic on the same mold they used to make Thundercracker's black ones and Starscream's blue ones, and you'd have to make a deliberate choice to put Skywarp's on a different mold from his purple parts.

    Instant pre-order! Time to round up the KBB Seekers and send them to a new home.
