    ok...what were the colors of the other seeker jets seen sporadically throughout the original TF cartoon? I know sunstorm was the yellow one, and I think there was an off-green one. does anyone know their names?

    and the second part. I plan on obtaining three cheap (but complete) starscreams to alter to become the "other" seekers. for you kit-bashers and whatnot out there, what kind of paints do you use and what other information can you provide a novice like me?

    thanks

    Someone compiled a catalogue of generic Decepticons (the bulk of which are Seekers) here.

    Mind you, the names he gives them are mostly his own nicknames (and some borrowed from others). He also references when/where most of them appeared in the cartoon, which is helpful.

    As far as I know, the seven primary Seekers are the only ones who HAVE canonical names. Someone correct me if I am wrong. The others might have agreed-upon-fan-names, though, I suppose.

    That is helpful and I think you are right about the names WhiteMocha.

    Yeah, I didn't think they had names. Sunstorm hasn't had a name for very long has he??? When did he get his name?

    I always called the green one 'Acid Rain' (he used the ability in the show) & the red one 'Barnstorm'.
