    Okay, so I must confess an ignorance of the Robot Masters line. My question is this:

    How do the Robot Masters seekers compare, size-wise, to the Classics seekers?

    Thanks!

    I don't own the figure, but judging by this picture it looks literally like the halfway point in design between G1 and the Classics mold.

    EDIT: And of course, now I read "size-wise." Yeah... no clue.

    They're a wee bit shorter, like 80% of the size of the classics seekers maybe... They also don't have knees, but they're still pretty sweet.

    I was estimating about 85% height wise. Cool.Might be a cheaper way for me to get TC on my shelf. Thanks!

    The Robot Masters Seekers are closer to tall Scouts than Deluxes. Deluxe complexity, but in a much smaller package. 80% is about the right size reference, though.

    I love RM seekers, they are FAR better than the classics mold IMO - knees be damned.

    I've sold him off, took these pics for the sale. I didn't like him, pretty floppy in bot mode, and alt mode doesn't stay together that well.

    What's a general price for the RM seekers? I just picked up Skywarp and Thundercraker for 44 shipped from ebay. I would love to get SS too if I like the figures.

    Expect to pay around $15-25 for SS.

    You might as well pick up Lio Convoy and Beast Convoy from the RM line.

    You should look out for the oversized KO's of RM Wingstun and Wrecker Hook. They're both deluxe size and Wingstun looks great with Acid Storm.

    Got them a few years ago for 2 euros each. One of my greatest finds.

    Thanks for your help everyone; RM Thundercraker and Skywarp arrived yesterday and they are great figures. Starscream should be here sometime next week.
