    Hello, I'm new here.

    My primary collection's vintage G.I.Joes, but I do buy other stuff, like Hot Wheels, and Transformers.

    I used to have G1 TF toys when I was a kid, but sold them since. The only TF line I've been collecting since is the TF Legends line, and the Legends Seeker form is my favorite.

    Hence, I've done some customs with it. Here's my current Seeker Squadron (with more in the works).

    I haven't bothered with the ALT forms much though.

    Hope you like them. :poke

    That's amazing as far as shear numbers go but you gotta give us some who's who on all of those. Do you have names for all of them? Or a story to go along. I'm very interested cuz this is my favorite legends mold as well

    thanks for the nice comments guys.

    i do have names for all of them, some of which are taken and based on existing TF decepticon flyers.

    i use these seekers as:
    * (GIJoe) Cobra/Decepticon Sky-B.A.T.s with A.I.;
    * Alien invader jets in my Hot Wheels collection (the TFLegends being in size with Hot Wheels was my primary reason in collecting them)
    * I used to play these against the TFLegends Autobots, but stopped, since they've already decimated the Autobots through sheer number.

    and oh, can I get any help? I want to show you some of my faves up close, but I can't seem to attach images to my messages in this forum. How do I go about it?

    Names for the above seekers:

    1st row (L-R): Starscream (squadron leader), Firestarter, Skystalker, Deathracer, Quicksilver (thin alien alloy makes him superfast, but super breakable), Dirge (the 1st - im not satisfied, so making a 2nd one), Tailwind;
    2nd row (L-R): Manzai (my japanese seeker), Thrust (my fave custom so far), Dustbreather, Sunstorm (not a custom), Skywarp, Thundercracker (classic G1 paint job);
    3rd row (L-R): Diehard, Frightpath, Ruckus, Ramjet, Valkyrie, Terrorsoar, Ramwing (Ramjet classic G1 paint job);
    4th row (L-R): Whisper, Lightspeed, Gravewraith (the Vampire Seeker), Skybomb, Trackblaster, Cybershock (a virtual-world based seeker), Roarcall;
    5th row (L-R): Heatstroke, Sky Rex (Lex Luthor's seeker - patterned after his battle armor), Stargazer, Spitfire, Strikeblade, Goldrush (the greedy seeker), Pathfinder;
    6th row (L-R): Moonwolf, Sunrunner (the seeker trainer), Crashburn, Wreckage, Flameback, Reignfire, Fitor (Gobot Renegade turned Decepticon).

    Hope you like them. :)

    Fantastic stuff; I'd love to see them all in more detail. Sunrunner looks very cool, but you know, he actually reminds me a lot of Gutcruncher...

    thanks for the nice comments guys...

    you guys just gave me enough encouragement for making Batch#4 of my custom seekers!

    I'll get straight to work on them, and show them to you ASAP!

    P.S.: Is there a way i can show ALL my Seeker close-up images? Or is it just limited to 10 pix?
