Classics Seeker Asia Exclusive Boxed Set may be in the works

Chalk this up as a possibility with a strong foundation behind it right now - Planet Iacon have shared an image showing artwork of all six of the Classics Decepticon Seekers charging into battle together. They claim this is for an "upcoming GDO Seekers set" and sure enough, if you look at the top of the image, there is a tag for Transformers Asia, the official page for the GDO / Asia exclusive releases. If this pans out and the six Seekers all get a new release - either reissued in a set or in new decos - this will be good news for those who missed out on the whole set the first go round.

Keep it TFW for more information.

interesting - I wonder what deco they'll use. I hope it's something different from either Classics or Henkei
Blitz.
awesome I'd be game for a set.
Omnius
They'll have to pull something special in terms of decos to make me buy all six again.
exclusacon
Oooh....I like this.....Has/Tak fighting fire with fire with the 3Ps huh?
thielmj
damn where was this when i was working on my seeker combiner customs, o well, considering i'm guessing its going to be like 200 bucks given the bruticus parts i'll probably pass on it
Autobot Burnout
Well, at least it's re-releasing the two seekers I actually need.

I think this is for the people who don't have all six. You're not their targeted customer.

Based on the picture they're all VERY accurate to the G1 cartoon decos (with some minor extra details).

I have all 20 other Seekers (I have at least 2 of each, if not 3 or 4) and I AM ALL OVER THIS!!!!

hupla
Sunstorm will never get a toy from the classics mold will he? ;-;
GMANIFESS
Are these even official or part of the bootleg legacy.
Did Tak/Tom ever officially call them 'seekers'?
MechaV
I sure wish I could keep my money this year.
TriBlurr
sigh........I only need Skywarp..
s_cren
Il pass considering I only need skywarp I have the rest I wish they would just release him again by himself

There was a CHMS KO in both yellow and creamsicle colors.

This could be cool if the decos are premium. Otherwise, I'm pretty done with this mold except for wanting a G2 Starscream.
Sideswipe1954
I would get that
sureshotimus
i have about 30-40 of the classics seeker molds and multiples of them henkei / classics etc. and games of deception set in box but ill still buy this if it comes out. lol. ya i think its mt favourite mold also
STRAKER454
I'm just wondering what sort of paint apps we're going to see. The Aisia Exclusive stuff haven't been the highest quality paint apps I've ever seen. Bit sloppy too...well OK the Wheelie figures I found ALL looked great as did Springer but the Cliffjumpers have been a mess and rather sparse on the paint so it looks like a mixed bag but this set would help a lot of people get say, that elusive Skywarp so it would suck if he were painted like shit.
KFGatri
This is great news for anyone who missed some of the earlier releases! I don't need it, but it's still awesome for those who do.
Jacer
This looks promising. I already have all six american ones, hopefully pictures will show if they're worth it or not.
Thundershot
If BBTS is selling Ultra Magnus for $80, this is going to be closer to $250.
PrimusVsUnicron
will Acidstorm and Sunstorm be part of this?

Yup.

It would be interesting to see if the base mold is still in as good condition as it was during the Generations seeker era, versus the floppy version of the Universe era. But there is definite potential in this set, or sets (it could be divided into two, one for the original three and one for the coneheads). And what paint schemes they wind up using (PLEASE no chrome). Starscream in something similar to his Universe deco could carry the set by himself, Thundercracker could use pale blue and the Gen wing deco, Ramjet could be more like the henkei version....

I would only be interested if Dirge and Thrust are cartoon accurate then I can complete my Takara seekers. Maybe replace TC if they fixed the missile issue.
Cadbane
This is very interesting. Depending on the price, I might pick up one set. But will definitely pass if it is a crazy price like the 140 ROTF Megagron, considering this would be the 3rd seeker team that I buy.
miscreant
Not in the market for more Classics seekers...

But if these are being released, one set of 1984 characters, and one set of 1985 characters may be less off putting.

Isn't there suppose to be a Ratbat too?

What???

I, uh, Wow!.

Welp, sign me the frick up even though I have 4 of them already I REALLY want the last two.
Magnus' Mate
Use the superior Henkei paintjob and I'll be interested...

No, please don't.

I LOVE my US seekers, Thundercracker and Thrust look AMAZING, especially Thrust who looks 100x better than the Henkei version.

If I get this I'll be sorely tempted to just keep the best of decos from the 10 and sell the other 4 mixing and matching to my preference.

I AM concerned though that the mold changes for Ramjet won't be carried through though.
Anguirus
WOW, didn't see that coming. Probably not for me, but that's just awfully exciting for people who have been after Seekers. And I'm betting they'll have a "coordinated" deco as well, which many people have wanted.
Optimal Primus
This is mind blowing. I have all the seekers and I'm still tempted to pick this up XD

Yes, but a hand-drawn poster is hardly any definitive indication. Still, the fact that four of the Henkei releases were store exclusives gives up hope that they'll change the decoes just enough to be different.
Transbot90210
FUCK!!!! I got all 6 Seekers but a part of me is a Seeker slut (I love sub groups)

Let's see what this turns out to be.

Wallet, hold on tight.
SPLIT LIP
Has the classics seeker mould stopped being shit yet?

No?

Then pass.
Mixmastah
Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes
slugslinger2004
Only want a Skywarp since I have the rest. Will be passing on this set unfortunately.

What, you mean they're not aimed at me specifically? You make it sound as if people who have all six are somehow excluded from attempting to buy these again... Anyway, I'll be tempted if the decos are co-ordinated in some way as the full Classics/Universe/Generations line-up looks a bit 'off' with the inconsistent decos.
Anguirus
^ No. He isn't.
jamarmiller
My boy is only four and so I missed the whole thing before with these molds. now that he has starting watching Tfs G1 cartoon, he is starting to want these characters in toy form. So I most likely will be buying these for him when they come out
ex dtw2003
Jeez, I really need to know the price on this - 6x20 = $120. I think I could do $150 but near $200 is a no go for me unfortunately.

I could sell of a few of my other seeker to pay for it. Classics Strascream, it was a good ride, lol.
Dolf
I hope this makes its way to the states, as I was late to the collection game and missed a lot of the seeker classics mold.

Exactly, same thing at my house. My son is 6 he loves classics Thundercracker & the G1 toon. Not being able to touch my MP's would make this set a nice gift for him. Have to wait & see some prices.
dragon516
I have a seeker set or two but is tempted by the box set as they may come in one nice display box.
Megatron31
i have thewm but depending on the deco i may bite on this
Leoscream

Starfire22
