    At least you can see these faces, Starscream's was a tad too dark and small so all the detail is lost without a flashlight. Im not sure if I want these unless they improved the cockpit pieces that come off in transformation and the hollow wings.

    There aren't any picks of the underside of the wings.:(

    Guys the animation shows it is correct in plane mode save for the fists. Why are they not purple? I’m going to paint them myself!

    Skywarp was the very first TF I got for Christmas of 1984. This is going to be a dream come true! So many wonderful childhood memories

    Yeah, don't touch the fins, but fix the little purple bits in plane mode, fix the black squares in the tailfins, and get those hands purple.

    Maketoys please give skycrow purple hands and lightning grey forearms and these will be almost perfect.

    They've got plenty of stuff in development, but of COURSE Skywarp and Thundercracker would be coming after they released Starscream. That's just leaving money on the table if they didn't.

    Sure, but they like have 4 repaints this year. G1 and Galaxy Force. And I thought last year was a bit much with 2 Starscreams.

    These 2 have been requested by lots of ppl, the set needs completing and it makes sense to whack these out on Starcream's heels.

    Done, dusted, everyone gets chance to have modern super articulated seekers, MT have morein their coffers for new stuff. Win/win.

    Might not change anything, but for those who care, it might be worth the effort to go to MT's Instagram/FB pages and let them know what you'd like to see.

    I'm sure, if nothing else, they could sell purple hands, or manufacture them to pack in with this or their next release a la FT. I've never owned an MP Skywarp, and my Hasbro Thundercracker is a bit dark to my liking...been debating this set, but still not quite sold. The underside of the wings is a bit too bland, to where the back looks shoddy in robot mode to me. But I'll probably never see that in my display...

    How easy is it to get the faction logos lined up on the wings? Are there any subtle markers for guidance?

    I'd be pleased if they give us other seekers, eg the purple air warriors/seeker drones plus Nacelle...Hot link etc, or even conehead variations, i want more MP sized cons to fill balance out the Autobots.

    I never had a chance to get all of the seekers. Especially the first three. So I'm excited about it.

    They’re *not* just doing repaints. They have so many new molds in the last 12 months:
    • Divine Armor for Thunder Manus
    • (Howling) Meteor
    • Thunder Erebus
    • (Galaxy) Meteor
    • Contact Shot
    • Downbeat
    ...and just before then...
    • Striker Manus
    • Rioter Despotron
    • Despotron
    • Pandinus
    Have they done repaints of many of these figures? Sure. But that doesn’t mean they’re only doing repaints.

    See, there are two different molds right there.

    Sorry, @mciver977 , you’re not allowed to get things you like. As you can see above, MakeToys should not be free to produce repaints. Because.

    Everything aside, these are not "milking a mold" repaints. These are legit 1 tier (or 2 tier) season one characters. And MT can't remold them because.. They were perfectly alike in the toon. It's not laziness.

    Mt has to do them.


    And, of course, I don't mind some new molds too :D

    Sure hope they fix that part of the nosecone between the cockpit and the point being a different color from the rest of it. Pretty dopey to let that slip though to solicitation pictures either way.

    I haven't seen one company changing things right before release, so I don't think it will happen.
