    I've sold a bunch of toys lately, that im mailing out, and I have no idea where this goes. I tried finding it on tfu.info, but no luck so far. I've got all the toys packed up, and one extra missile here. Its clear, and either from the 2007 movie line, animated, or RID I think.

    Definitely not a movie seeker, wrong type and they were never moulded in clear. Looks familiar but I can't put my finger on it.

    I recognize it from somewhere as well. I'll kill myself for not getting it when we find out what it is :lol

    yeah, optimals were larger. I'm still searching, and can't figure out where it goes.

    It's very close to Henkei Skyfire, but not the same missile type.

    I'm going to guess Henkei Ghost of Starscream? Look's like the missile from the CHUG seekers.

    Similar, but the tip of the missile is much wider.

    Er, it looks nothing like the Seeker missiles. Theirs change shape in the middle and have detailing on both ends. This thing is just a clear rod.

    I think it must be from RiD, as I have nearly every figure from the 07 movie and Animated lines and I don't recognise it at all.

    Watch someone totally prove me wrong now! :lol

    Well, the square end tipped looked similar to my Generations Thrust figures missile. So that's why I was thinking that.

    You don't see many clear missiles around these days.

    Off the top of my head I know of only maybe half a dozen TFs that use clear missiles, and it's none of those, nor are any others listed in Resources. :(

    @ OP - Do you collect any other type of figures? Might be from another line...

    I'm probably wrong again... :lol

    I collect nearly all lines :p  A check on Resources for other toys with Clear Missiles turned up nothing that matches the original pic. :(

    Perhaps it isn't a TF missile?

    Sorry Omnius, I was directing my previous post at the OP. My mistake for not making it clear enough.
