    I wish they'd given him a smerk, hopefully TC has a frown and SW has a smile to help set them apart a little more.

    There is a t shaped channel on the guns, just ahead of the handle, that fits over the t shaped part of the inner elbow.

    Planet X confirmed that Skywarp and Thundercracker are on the schedule for 2017, but they may be limited runs or Convention Exclusives. If you think those would be a mistake you should probably let them know.

    That makes sense from a financial point of view. Fact is, Starscream is the most popular of the seekers, so it makes sense to focus on him as the main figure. The re-colors as a limited edition run or Con Exclusive means smaller batches only for fans or completionists. Even though Planet X caters to a niche audience, lol.

    It's a niche of a niche! :D

    I knew those fuckers had the other two already hiddenly made!!! Those sneaky bastards! :lol 

    I wonder if the other two will feature different weapons than that of Starscream. Would be hella-nice, especially if they do become 'Con exclusives.

    They should do like Hasbro would, and make Skywarp a pack-in exclusive with some Optimus Prime repaint available in one store only, and then Thundercracker be a convention exclusive that is made in incredibly small number... NOT.

    Starscream still has the best colors. The rest look bland.

    Now the important question....


    Regular releases, or convention exclusives? :lol 


    edit: Actually, shouldn't these two get their own threads now?

    I really hope they are regular releases....or release them in a 'set'. But please don't make them convention exclusives.

    I know this is unlikely but I would love Coneheads out of this mold. I just really need a voyager seeker mold that isn't the igear one.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what the final colors look like and eventually picking them both up, really hoping we don't have to wait to long this year for them. I agree it would be cool if we could get the addition of some different weapons for the other two seekers aswell, but if not I'll still be plenty happy just having TC and SW standing next to my other FOC decepticons, especially once we get megatron. I have no idea why I waited so long to start picking up planet x figures, they are easily my favorite part of my collection now.

    Sometimes direct repaints share a thread, unless you think there is a need for two more unique conversations on the other two...

    It really doesn't matter to me either way, I just know that usually unless it's a combiner thread or multiple figures sold as a set, different characters usually get different threads.

    Well I am out now. Why would they make seekers that size? Messes up their own scale. I have the dinobots and would have been in for at least 2 seekers but after seeing this, nope. Thanks for posting the photo.

    I wish skywarp and cracker had the lovely vibrant colors like scream does. Seems PX went more game accurate with them but didn't originally with scream. Wonder why.

    They're saying the colors aren't final, so maybe they'll make them more accurate to how you guys want them to be when they're released.
