    Another interesting article, thanks Maz. Personally, I feel like this would have been the best color scheme for the G2 jets. I'm not a big fan of the gold canopy, but it does seem like possible placeholder. I wonder how the new weapons would have been attached.

    I think the weapons depicted on the shoulders and feet would have just been graphics on the stickers. The werapons shown on the wing and arm are just like regular G2 Ramjet weapons.

    All the best

    Beautiful toy.... it's very sad it wasn't released, because IMO it looks better than G2 Ramjet.

    so with this there is a total of 4 unproduced G2 seekers found, I wonder if anymore will pop up? Also the one thing I have noticed is that the paint and graphics that is on these last 3 seekers is very sloppy and does not really look like previous mock ups were the details are almost perfect. I have compared and part of me has a hard time still thinking these are 100% real. I know a lot of us know were these proto's , art work , ect..... are coming from but these last 3 are very different from mock ups in terms of paint apps found years ago.

    Four? There was this and the 'green camo Starscream,' right? What're the other two?

    In any case, it's not even funny how much better the jungle/desert camo seekers would have been than the jumbled mess o' color seekers we actually got in G2.

    Yeah, the only two I know about are the jungle camo Starscream and this one (well, now anyway!). Maz hinted at the "DC" being some kind of G2 connection, but I never heard of it, whatever it is, or those blue and black repaints before.

    "oftenly used" :lol 

    I already have an idea of the direction the black Starscream would have taken based on these other ones, and even though I have no particularly special love for seekers, all of these realistic-deco ones would have been mine for sure!
