    so, the 4 most desired figures from botcon 07 were dirge, thrust, thundercracker and springer...

    the target universe 2 packs gave us dirge and springer, in some form...

    which molds OTHER THEN THE CLASSICS SEEKER MOLDS would make great thrust and thundercrackers?

    i've got the botcon set, but i think there's some cool molds to reuse...

    i'd like to see thrust from the energon starscream mold, and as for thundercracker, i'm not sure...maybe again the energon mold, possibly as a two pack, sold at the voyager price...what do you think?

    and please, keep this on topic...

    They could repaint the Cybertron Thundercracker mold into a more G1 Thundercracker theme. In fact, I'm kind of surprised they haven't done that yet. Honestly, with one of Hasbro's comments in the Q&A, I wouldn't be surprised if they were to release the retools of Ramjet as Dirge and Thrust that Takara is. They apparently helped Takara work it out, so they are most likely, imo, planning to eventually release them over here with their own deco for them.

    It would only make sense to use either the Classics mold (I know you excluded that one) or the same mold that was used for the recent Dirge/RB two pack. Dirge just seems like the retarded Seeker all alone on my shelf amongst the other Seekers.

    Why not just repaint the Thrust figure from Armada/Energon to more G1 colors? Oh, and hands, he should be given hands. I'm not sure about Thundercracker. I don't like the Cybertron mold because of the mutant gun/arm thing he's got going on.

    Agreed - that Cybertron mutant mold needs to be lost in a fire. The sooner Hasbro forgets about it the better.

    I hated C. Thundercracker.

    Just make one from Energon Starscream or something instead.

    Something needs to be done with the Energon Starscream mold. Its too cool for Hasbro not to reuse!

    i hate you... :thumb 

    and yeah, i agree that the classics mold has gotta be shot, and i figure since they did dirge different they'd do the others different too possibly...

    what other jet molds could they use? maybe cybertron jetfire as thundercracker? or sideways as thrust? hahahaha...those'd be awful i think...

    Yeah. Those really would be.
    I'd like Armada Jetfire as a new character, but not one of the seekers.

    oh, and i totally agree that we need to see the energon screamer mold again...with the right color scheme, i'd be very tempted to buy another version, and i still own the regular energon version, though i sold off my g1 version...i think...

    the best choice to me is to get the vector prime/starscream repaint, that has starscream, basically IN thrust's colors, and just pretend he is thrust.

    One of these things is not like the others,
    One of these things just doesn't belong,
    Can you tell which thing is not like the others
    By the time I finish my song?

    Thrust and Ramjet were released already in universe. They just apparently got hit with a shrink ray.

    The thing is, I think the Ramjet mold is actually a completely different set of molds. Yeah his basic body is the same, but with the amount of differences that he has, I doubt that they use the same set of metal molds to make the parts that are similar to Starscream. And then the Dirge and Thrust retools that Hasbro helped Takara work out for the Henkei one's have enough differences that I wouldn't be surprised if each one of those has it's own set of molds for production. I don't think we need to worry about mold degeneration from the Ramjet mold just yet, though I would be wary of any more Starscream repaints we get.
