    So quite a few things got me thinking lately and I was just wondering...

    ...Would anyone besides me like a new Deluxe sized Decpticon jet mould for Universe? Just think: it could be a new jet, maybe based off an F-22 or another kind, improved posability and better porportions. I just think it would be great and it could be an awesome way of getting TC and other jet bots over here. I don't really like the current Classics SS mould as it's not very posable and I personally don't like the F-15 style jet mode that much. (I like F-15's, Classic SS just is kinda... cubbier than say, MP Starscream as far as relative porportions are considered, not direct comparisons)

    What do you think? A good idea or am I just asking for too much?

    I certainly would. I tend to buy most of the jets once at least. Repainted with new names…no thanks. I am just a fan of aerial bots and police bots.

    Great idea. But what charactor would it be? However I personally adore the SS mold. I dont know what kinda poseability for a Deluxe your lookin for dude, but hes got TONS. Its , by far IMO, the best SS mold ever.

    It's not bad, but some swivels above the elbows/knees would do wonders for him. Also being able to turn his head fully and point his arm-mounted guns straight forward would rock.

    I personally think a new TC would rock. He's always been my second favourite jet next to Skywarp, and a new mould for him for Universe would be aces.

    i got three guys who could be f-22 seekers

    hornet:black and yellow color sceme with gatling guns instead of null rays

    acidrun:a light green with purple and has regular null rays but with a tube running from his back to the null ray to act like an acid despencer.

    flamethrower:a red repain of acidrun with his weapons with yellow secondary color sceme (weapon flamethrowers)

    they could be a group of high-ranking decepticon war generals

    Would be cool to see, but honestly, I'd rather see someone else than more Seekers (other than two more rainmakers and Sunstorm that is). We are at least getting a Deluxe Cyclonus in the 25th Ann. line.

    I'd love to see some classic propeller places. Ransack from G2 updated with modern sensibilities. Or maybe a Harrier.
    I could also go for an Ultra Class post WW2 Flying Fortress as Skyquake. I always saw Skyquake as more than a plane, and a Flying Fortress would do the job. Not to mention the repaint potential of getting a King Atlas out of him (though they're both pretty obscure. Still, so is Stormcloud)

    I like uniformity amongst the Seekers, and Botcon already gave us that, so I don't wanna see a new mold seeker, unless they actually had the gaul to give us all 6, again. But would I take a new jet mold that isnt a seeker? Absolutely.

    I would love a new deluxe jet mold, it doesn't have to be a seeker, it doesn't have to be a decepticon, it just has to be good.

    I love the Classics Seeker mold to pieces. I'll buy ANY (non-exclusive) repaint/remold of it.

    But a new mold would be nice.

    Thundercracker as an IDW-style F-22 would be nice.

    I think the F-22 would be great. I love the design of it. For those that read the IDW comics, the Seekers in those comics look awesome.

    EDIT- Ha, the General hit it right on the nail

    To be honest, I'm surprised Hasbro hasn't already tumbled to this as a solution to the three remaining seekers. Yes, I appreciate they are honouring their exclusivity agreemend, but who said TC, Thrust and Dirge had to be F-15s? Give us F-16s, F/A-18s, F-14s, Harriers, Tornadoes... there's more than one jet fighter in the world, let's see some of them.

    I think I remember asking this question months ago, before Takara announced their Thundercracker. However, that does sound awsome.

    I'm all for IDW based F-22 seekers, and I suggested this eons back with my Universe wishlist thread. I think F-22 IDW seekers are feasible due to brand recognition.
