    Now that Thundercracker joins Dirge and Thrust in the Generations line, what other Seekers need release? I figure at best the other 2 Rainmakers and Sunstorm and maybe some of the FFOD Seekers before the mold is retired for good

    We've seen Thrust and Dirge in this line, so what we REALLY need is Ramj-oh wait...hmm...crap...

    Maybe Slipstream?

    In my opinion Slipstream really needs her own mold. I really would like to see a Sunstorm.

    Sunstorm and the blue Rainmaker dude are the only two that remain to be made from the mold as far as I know. Slipstream just wouldn't work as the Classics seeker mold just isn't "femimine" enough.

    Sunstorm and Slipstream are the only ones I care about. I don't give a damn about those two nameless Rainmakers.

    Sunstorm is the only must-have on my list, though I'm certainly open to Hasbro doing the full pallette of colors.

    Man, need to release ALL of them in just one line, using the same Decepticon shield on every one of the seekers and the same blister!

    Hasbro should look up the word HOMOGENEITY in a dictionary!

    They did, but they vastly preferred the definitions of MONEY and PATIENCE.

    Am I the only one that wants to see one of the "Lavender" clone seekers?

    slipstream would need her own mould (saying that I'd rather they give us a Armada SideSwipe before that mary sue gets her own toy)

    I think the only seeker close to needing a toy is Sunstorm and I'd be happy with him being a low production repiant like Henkai TC and SW

    We've got the original three and the Coneheads. As far as I'm concerned that's all we need.

    If there's 1 more repaint of this mold, I want it to be Sunstorm. More Rainmaker would be nice, and it would be funny to see a Classics Starscream in movie color (tatoo and all) :p

    I whish they re-release Skywarp since I really missed out on him, also Ramjet wouldn't hurt.

    Sunstorm definitely. I would love a Slipstream...but she would definitely need here own mold. And I wouldn't mind an "Air Warrior". The other two rainmakers I could take or leave. They are too close, in terms of color, to Thundercracker and Sunstorm.

    I would really like to see Sunstorm. It would be nice to see the Rainmakers but I won't cry if they don't. I want a Slipstream but I agree that she needs her own mold.

    After TC, I agree.
    Who else is there? Where did Acid Storm come from? I guess they can do a Sunstorm... but I think they've covered them all.

    Slipstream

    Honestly i've never cared for Sunstorm much. Also because Slipstream is female.....:D 


    I know the seeker mold isn't feminine but does it really have to? Ever look at BM Strika......

    Acid Storm is the green Rainmaker. The other two aren't really going to make spectacular figures since they're the same colors as Sunstorm and Thundercracker.

    Instead of whoring out a mold that's starting to disintegrate, I'd rather they spam the hell out of that Legends mold. I can see them selling blind-packed Legends seekers like Lego is doing with minifigures.

    Ebay:


    That would never, ever work. YOu just can't get customers to buy the same thing over and over again... us collectors, we're like 5% of the market.
