    I've been wanting a set of the three Seekers, but finding officials is expensive and my last custom set using the Masterpiece mold failed (Thundercracker's wing broke off when I tried transforming him.). So, I figured making these three from the PCC Skyburst mold (2 Skybursts and 1 Darkstream were used) would be the easiest and cheapest option. Thundercracker and Skywarp are also my first dyed customs, I think it's okay for a first time, could be better (TC's purple).

    PCC-Verse Seekers are an awesome concept, and they look nice and clean :) 

    Great job!

    Very cool idea that pretty much had to be done, and it's turned out very nicely. :) 

    Out of curiosity, wouldn't it have been easier to use a Darkstream to do Thundercracker? I'd have thought the lighter plastic would have been much easier to dye...

    Well, the nearest Wal-Mart had only one Darkstream and I thought Skyburst was light enough.

    :D  Thanks. I was a little worried about the concept, so I'm glad to see it went over well.

    I wish they had some jet arms as the Drone jet legs already look a bit like Black Starscream and one of the SkyScorchers to me.

    It works quite well as they are quite Triangular looking so its suggestive of Machine Wars and a number of Pre-Earth forms too.
