    -Does it include shipping?
    -What kind of condition are TC and SW in?

    If it's a decent TC and a good SW and shipping is included, and you've got the money. I'd say go for it.

    THats a fairly decent deal shipped seeing as the 4 exclusive went for around 300ish depending on where you go them. I personally got them all and dont regret it at all they look soo good together. My TC did have QC issues but the rest have been fine.

    Going by your pic, the Starscream appears to have massive panel lines drawn on him, and the Ramjet doesnt look like the Henkei, but just the Hasbro version?

    That should just be for illustrative purposes if the actual figures are MISB.

    GO FOR IT! I got Thundercracker (Thrust & Dirge are on the way) to go with my Classics/Universe Seekers & don't regret it for a second! I was so happy to finally have a set of complete Seekers that I also bit the bullet and finished up my G1 Seekers & ordered a set of Mini-Seekers also. Never been a total Seeker Fanboy, but I guess having a full set will change your mind lol

    Yeah, that's the Universe Starscream and Classics Ramjet (dark grey wings there on the legs, they should be a bright red).

    But if you are getting them MISB, those shouldn't be the actual figures you get.

    $60 for each seems like a great deal especially with thrust and dirge going for significantly more on BBTS.

    Ebay:
    That's about original import retail. If you can get them to go to $330 or $340 that would be a bonus.

    SS - $25
    TC - $70
    SW -$70
    Ramjet - $25 (a tad high)
    Thrust - $70
    Dirge - $70
    Shipping - $20
    --------------
    Total - $350

    I would say, hopefully your Thundercracker and Skywarp do not have the problems so many of us had. I could not believe paying that much money and having quality problems of this magnitude. I would say shop around but you will probably have to pay more in shipping if you buy them separately so keep that in mind.

    It's worth it for the exclusives. Starscream and Ramjet are effectively bonuses.

    I am not a big fan of the Henkei/classics seeker mold. It seems too small to me. That may be a good price but for that much money I would get the set of 3 Masterpieces if you don't have them already.

    I would get them if they are new. Not a bad deal at all and they are awesome figures.

    not bad. when i first saw the sig of someone w/ all 6 of them, it made my jaw drop. i have all 6 G1 Seekers and to see them in Henkei/Classics was sweet, i'm jealous.
