    *raises hand with stupid question*

    How do these compare in size to the classics seekers? I've seen the size comparisons to the original G1/reissue figures, but I have never seen them (or the full-size G1 molds) compared to the classics figures....just curious, for the sake of a few kitbash ideas....

    What? Why are they using Pretender Starscream's artwork instead of his original art?

    Heh, glad to see I'm not the only one that had that thought. When the first batch turned up I searched Ebay for possible comparison shots. I can't remember what they put a loose one up too, but I'm pretty sure it was too small to go with the classic figs.

    Unless I looked at the wrong auction, it would seem that another dream to line up good Thrust and Dirge Classic figs has been :banghead:  dashed.

    G1 and Classics seekers are almost exactly the same size. So how these compare to G1 size-wise is how the compare to Classics size-wise.

    Sunstrom? Ha! :D 

    So, how much are these if you're NOT buying them all at once via an overpriced eBay auction?

    If any of these guys had half a brain they would make g1 sized ko's in colors we haven't had like green, yellow, red and so on... They would go fast!

    i wouldn't mind seeing if these ko weapons fit the classics jets,if they do it may possibly improve the arm posability and give the classics a more g1 look as well,anyone else agree?maybe someone could post pics of my proposal.

    Luckily it is sunSTROM so that's how you know it's a mini-version of the original!

    I agree, new G1 seekers in original size would rule!

    Wow, I'd forgotten these were roughly Legends sized. Might have to reconsider picking one or several up, especially with Skywarp now available through this new wave.

    Hope they do a third series! We could get cartoon Seekers, G2 Seekers, I don't care what, I'd just like to see some more.

    EDIT: I saw, diablien, I saw! :D

    Ebay:
    The sets (6 jets per set) individually are selling for over $100 a piece, because anyone that is selling them knows they can mark them up. The whole set only costs about $20-$30, as the first person to see them got the 1st set in Hong Kong at a toy shop for that much.

    Unfortunately, demand in america is high and there is the import costs.

    And a quick lesson, the 1st set of six (starscream, sunstrom, dirge, thundercracker, thrust, ramjet) came out around december 07 and the new set (ghost coneheads, ghost starscream, ghost black starscream, skywarp) just came out last month.

    Individually I have seen sunstorm go for $90 (stupid!) and Starscream go for about $60. Other than that, they are between $15-$30.

    CHECK MY AUCTIONS DAMNIT!
