    ok, since Toy Fair said that Hasbro would make more Seekers (Thrust being the first, so the other 2 Botcon are probably on their way in future waves of Generations) what other variant color schemes are there?

    -Black Starscream (first seen in Robotmasters, used in Nagi Oki's Side B)
    -Sunstorm
    -Rainmakers (yellow and blue)
    -Five Faces of Darkness/ Season 3 variants (Conehead colored in gray, Seeker with Onslaught colors, Seeker in Dirge colors, seeker in Silverbolt colors)
    -Crimson Guard Style Seeker (generic, have them use some of the CC color scheme)
    -Random modified seeker (Spotlight: Cliffjumper)

    I'd be okay with seeing 'Decepticon', the generic seeker.

    I'll be happy with just Thrust and Dirge (since I have Henkei TC), but I think Thundercracker should see a wider release. The other rainmakers would be nice, but honestly it would be frustrating to see those before the core ones hit the shelves.

    Did they say they wanted to make more seekers?
    In that case bring on Sunstorm.

    I don't know what they'll make, but here's my wishlist:

    Dirge
    Sunstorm
    Blue and Yellow Rainmakers
    Gold Lagoon Starscream (exclusive; also Gold Lagoon of other 'cons)
    Ghost Starscream (exclusive again)

    I can also see a rerelease of the good ol' regular Starscream with a slightly different paint app.

    I want a mass release TC. I really do. But I'd have mixxed feelings about it if it happens. It's a simple repaint of the classics seeker mold for Botcon, and a mass release would seriously cheapen that. It's not like Thrust, who's at least a recolor of the Henkei one, and not a Botcon remake. Sure, I'd buy the mass release TC (my only substitute for him on my Classics shelf is the 6" titanium), but wow. I don't want to see the fanrage over that.

    Sunstorm
    Dirge
    Thundercracker
    G2 Ramjet

    Those are the only necessities as far as I'm concerned, but I'm certainly game for others.

    Damnit, all I want is a Sunstorm figure. I would say Thrust, but the fact Hasbro is willing to take the backlash and give the masses a version of the VTOLs on wings conehead already makes me a happy fanboy indeed.

    Sunstorm
    G2 Starscream
    G2 Ramjet
    As many other color combos they want to release it in until the mold has crumbled to dust.

    Hell, since they made Thrust out of ROTF Breakaway, how about a Breakaway out of Classics Thrust. :D

    I'd kinda like to see a classics version of the JP version of Masterpiece Starscream. Go Classics Greenscream!

    Keep making them, I'll keep buying them.

    Either to display, or to repaint.

    Bring on as many as possible. The 3 original Classics ones and the 3 Botcon ones will always be the front of my seeker shelf, but I'd happily put more out.

    I just hope Hasbro fix any mold degredation issues seeing as many people have complained about issues with the Henkei exclusives, and Universe Starscream and Acid Storm releases.
