    if Thundercracker, Skywarp and the other seekers ever show up in the movies, you think they should have new and unique designs instead of having Starscream design or keep with the tradition of them beign just Starscream repaints (however i do know there are moments in where they dont keep this tradition like example tf1 for psp, thundy design is different from Starscream, but well you know what i mean) or a mixture? like Some are just repaints and some have new looks?

    i myself would prefer if Bay keeps with the tradition, but i would be fine with whatever its decided if they ever show up

    The movie color pallet for the Decepticons has been pretty limited so I think it's almost going to take different designs to make them stand out as not being Starscream.

    I'd like to see something similar to Thundercracker's Movie 1 toy design.

    Same body designs, different heads. Also give them different coloured internal lighting systems that show through, a bit like WFC had. Then the bad guys can be as boringly grey as they like but when they transform they at least gain some colour in robot mode because of the lighting accents.

    I never liked the idea of repaint characters, especially of someone as distinctive as Starscream, so unique designs all the way. Plus, replacing dead Starscream with blue Starscream is beyond stupid.

    Not to mention the Movies aren't one to follow tradition. Ironhide and Ratchet aren't repaints of each other nor are the Constructicons all bright green and purple.

    Toy-wise, Dirge and Thrust already have their own toys (well, Thrust is technically a repaint, but it's of an off-screen Autobot). I'd love to see the other three have their own molds, too.

    I'd have them all be various jets, with a mix of F16s, F35s, MiG, and Black Eagles.

    I'd keep it to the different planes 'beginning with "F-"'
    F-15, F-18, F-117, F-22, F-35.

    Hell, if one of them's decommissioned, they could have someone saying 'that thing shouldn't be flying!'

    Don't care. It's not like we'll ever see them anyways.

    I think if the made them F35's they could keep similar robot modes. I'd be good with that, :)

    Different modes and robot modes.

    Thundercracker must look like he did in Reign of Starscream.

    He should have his Cybertronian mode. His fighter mode from the comics looks awesome.

    Please keep Michael Bay away from the rest of the Seekers.
