Evidently it's not just the Seeker Aces which are starting to get released in Asia, as the Singapore Transformers Fan Page Planet Iacon has posted up an in-hand (and in-package) shot of the Transformers United Seekers Elites set. This set contains the three "conehead" Seekers Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. The three sport modified decos compared to their previous releases and together with the Seeker Aces set marks the first time all six of the Classics Seekers have been released under a single line with a single aesthetic (Transformers Henkei came close, but went with additional stripes in the vein of Classics for Dirge and Thrust).

Once again it's an Asia Exclusive release but if you want to fill out your Decepticon air forces the set can be acquired from many online retailers.

Grey wings on Thrust?

wish they would take these out of the box and post real pics!

Hasbro's Thrust seems better.
Thundershot
I still think the best of the best are United Starscream (boxed set), Botcon Thundercracker, United Skywarp (boxed set), Botcon Thrust, Generations Dirge, Henkei Ramjet.

not too bad. when they're on cleareance, i might pick it up. i could always use more seekers. BUT i am not paying the 200 dollars that bbts has it for, or what ever.
Kaijumaster
these are very sexy, but nothing I need.

(Now they release the Energon Starscream mold in Seeker colors....)
Incepticon
Love it! I've been championing an idea exactly like this for a couple years now, so I'm beyond happy to see it become an actual reality.

Works out way too expensive for both sets. As much as I want them, for $120 per set, I expect them to recite the alphabet backwards, and do my laundry.
Autovolt 127
I'm perfectly fine with the Hasbro version of all three of them.
Spin-Out
Enh, I hope that this is the last hurrah of the Classics Seeker mold. The injection molds are probably cheese by now, anyway

Cool, but not 120 dollars cool. What is up with Takara and their crazy prices lately? United Bruticus for 130? Give us a break!!

AGAIN with the BOX in hand pics.

Very nice packaging. I like the art...but the toys themselves have no appeal to me.
FatalT 71
I like the Coneheads, but they're not worth $130 to me. I'll stick with the set I have.

Awsome I already have the 2010 american set but might grab these to sell later on one of my biggest regrets is not going to botcon 2005 and getting the games of deception boxset
Prime Aspect
I will continue to buy every iteration of the classics seeker mold. Sorry that I'm apparently personally responsible for the continued reuse of this now-ancient mold.

Why do I get the feeling the box costs more than the figures?

If you had gone to Botcon 2005 looking for Games of Deception you might be disappointed, since it didn't come out until 2007. On the upsode, there might still be some actual 2005 sets (Descent into Evil) still available for not too much.
b.winn1
Yes 2007 I ment lol ether way it was sold out so fast but still wish I went

To be honest...I think this is where this ridiculous price is coming from.....which makes it worst considering it is just ONE package.

They've always been gray. Though on the cartoon they were silver, so I wish they would have done that here.

Me too! I own at least 2 of each, if not 3 or 4 of some.

Randy - still bitter United Skywarp's arm cannons are not purple.

I'd love a reissue of that toy simply so I could scavenge the head for some customs.



Now my only question about this is how do the reds on the different Thrusts look? Is there one closer to true red?
LegendAntihero
Nice packaging. I might keep this inbox like I do with BotCon toys.
Johnator
Those are awesome.

How weird!
theledge
me likey. as someone who has none of these, ill be getting my hands on this set as soon as i can even if it is a little pricey.
NemiMonkey
Not a bad set, but I won't be getting it. Only really need Ramjet. Thrust and Dirge I'm more then happy with the generations releases.
deathsheadII
i need to get these to display with straxus just a shame i can't afford them for a while
Sideways77
Dirge is also missing the red and white patterns...

This set is only worth it for Ramjet, truthfully. Even then.

He didn't have them in the cartoon, so he doesn't have them here either.

Just like Ramjet is missing the blue and white stripes and Thrust the red and white. Because they weren't in the cartoon.
