    I wish Hasbro would release a somewhat altered (classics) version of Thrust, Dirge and Thundercracker for the american market. The con exclusives and asian imports are a bit much for a cash strapped guy. I do plan on repainting a extra starscream into Thundercracker but the others will be problematic. Opinions?

    I think Hasbro is getting right on it. After the make a leader class animated Lugnut, Animated Season 4, and solve the whole climate change thing.

    I wish we would get a new, better Starscream mould that was like an F-22 or something inspired. The Classics SS mould is just not good as far as posability, and I am personally not fond of the robot's proportions.

    I personally doubt it will ever happen & was totally surprised that they got any Henkei love. I think your best bet is to just bite the bullet and get the Japanese versions. That being said, feel free to visit my sales thread & buy my stufs so I can get Thrust & Dirge LOL

    I think there is a small chance, after all they redid SS for the 2.0 line.

    Hasbro mentioned they'd like to get Thrust, Dirge, and TC out sometime, with enough differences to distinguish them from the Botcon versions.

    which the new henkei molds for dirge and thrust would allow them to do. they could always give thundercracker a stylish paint job like classics skywarp too.

    but this is like, a year down the line, at best.

    and to be realistic, it will probably never, ever happen, so it's best to just stop talking about it.

    until someone makes another topic asking about them on thursday.

    Even if we get a whole new mold I doubt hasbro will ever put out all 6 versions of the same mold in a line.

    Given that it wouldn't happen until next year (at least), I'd kinda prefer a new mold. Yeah, the Classics Seeker mold was ok, but it's not without it's flaws.

    This thread topic should just get stickied already. Not this specific thread though. One of the other 1000 that have covered it.

    Yes, I too would love to see a Classics or Universe 3.0 release of those characters. That'd be rad. However, I'm not holding my breath since ROTF is right around the corner and will probably linger for quite a long time.

    You know...that actually would be nice to start fresh again. F-22s for SS, SW, TC, and F-35 or F-18 for Dirge, Thrust and Ramjet. The mold can be used several times, Hasbro doesn't have to worry about the jets repeating as much. And life can be happy for all....some what.

    I love the Classics seeker mold. Easily the best we have ever gotten so far. I hope they do release Dirge, Thundercracker, etc. but I doubt it will happen anytime soon.

    I hate the classic seeker mold. The deluxe class doesn't work for large jets or spaceships.

    I'm hoping for Masterpiece Dirge,Thrust & Ramjet. Now that's the proper size class for a jet or spaceship.
