    Starscream had a TFC reissue.......

    And there's the Armada Figure, though he leans to specialized tastes

    Lucky! I've been wanting those for awhile, but they go for over $200 on ebay everytime. :( 

    As far as Thrust goes, I think he needs some sort of reissue or Classics toy. He was my fave seeker, after Skywarp of course.

    I always thought Thrust was one of the best Deceptions when I was younger. I don't know why, he just struck me as really cool for some reason. Then again, I liked all the coneheads.

    I always wanted his toy, when I was a kid. Mostly because I'm a sucker for VTOL aircraft. Always annoyed me how badly the animation model mutilated his head, though.

    I've got a Cl Starscream here, waiting to be kitbashed, but I've got a couple of other projects in front of it, and I'm down to scraps, on the two sizes of styrene sheet I need to make him.

    I like Armada Thrust. Does that count?

    He's better than G1 Thrust, if you think about it. He had a much more pivotal role in the show.

    Thrust was just a cannon fodder lackey in G1

    See thats my fav. part about Thrust, his burgundy and dark grey colour scheme.

    And he was my first seeker, so he's pretty much been my fav since the beginning. He's also the most unique of the original 6, being his wings are completely different than the rest, Dirge and Ramjet's are different but very similar and of course the original 3 shared the same design.

    Thrust has always been my favorite seeker and it got on my nerves that he wasn't given a normal reissue on either shore. He always looked so much more dynamic than the other seekers with the turbines in his wings and the crimson and black was a lot more ominous than most other seeker colors. If Classics continues after the movie like it was hinted it might, Thrust better be among the first new waves.

    That's one of the things about classics, was that with the vastly improved molding and care, as well as a nice low pricepoint, I was hoping to finally get a nice full seeker squadran, 6+ members strong...

    Seems that's not going to happen, and that sucks, big time.

    Hasbro dosen't wanna have to remold the wings just so they can keep fans happy. If they do repaint the Ramjet mold, it will probobly be Dirge, since although not perfectly the same, he's closet without actually remolding.

    My opinion all boils to past expeiriences, I can't see hasbro doing a remold of a figure they've done THREE times now. Though since Classics is short, and the movie will take up so much time, perhapes they may. (If you listening Hasbro...)

    Also don't give up on all the seekers, if my later statment is true, mabye they'll do a TC and maybe Dirge repaints.

    Thrust was always my second favorite jet after Thundercracker. His VTOLs were boss and really helped him stand out, even if they didn't make a lick of sense. His color scheme was striking. He and the other jets absolutely need to be done in Classics after the movie. I like Thrust so much, I made my own way back in the days of Energon, when everyone else was making Skywarp and Thundercracker:
