    Since we are getting Thrust and Dirge on the Generations label, how about Skywarp, Thundercracker and Ramjet?, do you think Hasbro will release those as well?
    Just thinking, i personally doubt it but if it happens i'll be in line to complete my Seeker army, all we need now is a repaint of this mold on Sunstorm colors and we'll be set.
    On another quick subject, any news of Voyager Animated Thundercracker?, no even from Botcon or Comicon?
    Thanks guys.

    Thing is, Thundercracker is really the only one left, as Skywarp and Ramjet were both in the first Classics line way back in 2006. I'm hoping they'll see a rerelease, because that's a pretty long time to spread all six over, and I personally never got those two (my Classics Starscream is the Universe one, too). Mirage and Megatron would be nice, too.

    ^This guy beat me to it.

    They already releases Ramjet and Skywarpp back in the classics line if 06/07 so the only one left is Thundercracker. I'd say it's a good 75% chance for him since he is the only one.

    I think a Generations Thundercracker is very possible (and I do hope for one :) ).

    But why would they reissue Skywarp and Ramjet? Starscream got a Universe reissue because he's pretty popular plus the paintjob on the Classics one was not very good but I don't see any reason to reissue Skywarp and Ramjet.

    Well. an optimistic statement by Hasbro noncommittal standards, that is.

    Who ever called the situation "Thundergate"? :peoples:

    I don't see why they wouldn't make a Thundercracker unless the minds at TRU are calling the shots. There's an Acid Storm, but not a Thundercracker? Cmon.

    The reason is that four of the six seekers have been released by Hasbro in the past two years. Ramjet and Skywarp are quite a while back, a rerelease/redeco would give those who missed them four years ago a chance to pick them up.

    Slipstreams needs a new mold, or it's dumb. Hasbro did say they were going to do Sunstorm, but maybe that was before they decided to go on with the Botcon Seekers. I bet we still get a Sunstorm eventually.

    I'd love to see a WFC Slipstream, though I doubt it would ever happen. I don't want a classics Seeker repaint of her though.

    I for one would love to see them release/re-release all of the seekers, since I only have Thrust. (He does look good next to my mp seekers :) )

    It would be awesome if they did a feminine seeker mold, and released Slipstream as well, but as a redeco it would just be dumb, imho.

    I'd love to see the jets repacked in three-packs. At least for Starscream, Skywarp, and Thundercracker to be packed looking like they are flying in formation (homaging the cartoon open). Ramjet might be possible somewhere, if they decide to re-offer other Classics/ Universe toys (some repainted, like Astrotrain).

    I'd like to see Sunstorm, but in more of a desert camo deco (going with Acid Storm's "jungle" camo) and maybe a grey & black "city strike" seeker to finish out the "Storm"/rainmaker trio.

    Im really hoping for Thundercracker and Sunstorm. The remaining Rainmakers would be cool, since AcidStorm is kind of a weird one out at the moment..

    If they can release 2 Starscreams they can release 2 Skywarps. Also, Thundercracker is a no-brainer.

    I have Henkei Skywarp and would MUCH rather have Henkei TC to go with him but if I end up with a Generations version I'll still be happy.

    i would love a skywarp re-release, seeing as he cost a fortune! that is the only reason to bring him back, like they did for rodimus

    only seeker from the first classic line i am missing, i hate target exclusives

    I just want Sunstorm out of that mold... Maybe Slipstream, too, but I'd rather she have her own mold.

    I definitely hope for a Generations Thundercracker.

    Plus, it would be nice if they come out with a Generations Sunstorm... and maybe do up the remaining two Rainmakers to go with Universe Acid Storm (assuming that Sunstorm isn't the yellow Rainmaker from G1).

    This what I'm hoping for since I wasn't collecting at the time (they rereleased Starscream and I think that Skywarp is popular enou to see a rerelease as well) the one thing is that if they don't rerelease the others, the classics are gong to skyrocket in price.
    Here are my fingers crossed since i cant afford the classic ones.

    Thing is there are other popular figures from the classics line that havent seen re-release domestically. I would venture to guess that Optimus Prime may be higher on their list than Skywarp. Im not saying that I wouldn't mind it (can't get enough seekers), but unless we got some cool multi-pack with all new decos, I don't know that Skywarp (in particular) would be that high on their list for release.
