    Okee, so I really had no desire to get any of these, but since I just snagged the 13" Palisades Devastator statue off eBay recently (holy sheeit it's awesome!), I figured it could look all the more better having some of the 3" guys surrounding it and finally have my own little battle scene where the size scales are pretty much bang-on to the cartoon. Originally I was going to track down the Heroes Of Cybertron figures, but since they're kind of hard to come by these days, the new Titaniums should do the trick just as well... assuming they keep releasing them in the quantity & selection of HOC.

    Anyway, the one thing putting the breaks on this idea altogether is the 3" Starscream figure. While all the rest seem to be nice little bots that stand on their own, they went and put all that smoke cloud crap under SS which kills the entire appeal for this figure imo.

    So, do all the Seekers look like this? Or better yet, is there a version of SS without the junk on the bottom?

    Sorry, Thundercracker's out too and he has purplish black smoke under his feet, straight repaint, if they do Skywarp I imagine it would be the same way.

    I actually don't mind the smoke...it looks like he's blasting off, and it makes it so he isn't so much in the "oh my god I have to shit a baby" pose most of the other 3" Titaniums are in

    I think it looks like he stepped in a giant wad of bubblegum and it stuck to his feet. Unfortunately that's the only way to get him (or any of the Seekers) if you want to go the 3" Titanium route.

    Hmm.. I'm not real fond of the smoke either but I don't think it would be too bad in a little battle scene. What I wanted to tell you was that I found some of the Heroes of Cybertron along with the keychained Brawn at Hot Topics a couple weeks ago. They had Rodimus Prime and Ultra Magnus but it showed images of others on the back, which I know had Prime and Megs but not so sure about anyone else (don't have the package at the moment). Oh, and this was in the Seattle area so I can't really say they are everywhere.
