    i'd go for it, but they're going to be 200 dollars since they're exclusives. and i can buy the american versions, for much cheaper then that.

    it's not like they came with ultra magnus back in the day like skywarp did.

    English text says Elite, Japanese text says Dogfight, weird.

    Not really, since these won't be available to the same market. Japan got the Henkei ones as exclusives, these are going to be China exclusive. Different regions entirely.

    Don't. I love it!

    Are they? I have them all and it really doesn't matter to me either way. I love ever release they've given us.

    Here's the link for more images.

    One thing I always liked about these seekers is that the molds are each a little different. Lookin' good Hasbro, looking good.

    Never liked the Chrome parts on Henkei Ramjet, and the other two i'm not sure if they're any better than what i already have.

    At least it saves me a $100 or so.

    This is TakaraTomy, not Hasbro.

    Also while these are near perfect I do wish Thrust had silver wings and that they had the faux sticker details on their knees like they did on the cartoon (Dirge & Thrust had purple and Ramjet had white with red details). Especially since the other 3 have it and they don't on the cartoon.

    Speaking of inaccuracies on the other 3 Skywarp's knee detail should be light blue and his feet detail silver instead of metallic dark gray. But everything else is so perfect, it's a minor nitpick.

    I see it says Takara Tomy on the top right corner of the picture but I'm confused by Hasbro copyright information on the bottom of the website.

    Produced / made by TakaraTomy but distributed by Hasbro.

    I want that Ramjet sooooo bad but I actually think the US releases for Thrust and Dirge are better, especially Thrust.

    :(

    Wish they could have remoulded Ramjet so his missiles looked like those of the other Seekers- as it is, he's the odd man out in this set.

    Also I would've liked Thrust's Decepticon logos to be on his wings in robot mode, not the tail fins. I like to plug the engines into the tail fins in robot mode, so those tampos (stickers?) will be obscured in my display, sadly.

    Oh man, NO WAY!

    Ramjet never had null rays back in the day. I would have been disappointed if they didn't go with the cluster bombs like they did here.

    Mother effer, this is going to be expensive to get all 6.

    I'd love to see another set with the rainmakers.
