    I'm in on this, assuming we get Skywarp and Thundercracker.

    Looks way better than the official. The only thing that bugs me about 3rd party is applying decals. I like the tampo style and hate stickers

    So. After the big three I'd love to see lesser done decos from this guy. A Nacelle would be great and would probably sell as we've never gotten one from any mold.

    Any other lesser decos that we think would actually sell?

    Dark metallic blue Thundercracker is pretty dang rare overall. Don't think I've seen it since MP-07. (and that was lacking silver and stripes).
    (TRU release was way too light---it was like halfway between G1 toy and G1 toon---not at all correct for either---and an awful lemon yellow canopy instead of orange)

    Not a perfect F-15, but I like it. The underside of the Seekers are rarely "good".

    $85 to match Zeta Seekers, I'll take all the colors of the rainbow!!
    $100, still a good deal.
    $125, I'm on board for a few of these. Maketoys level good.
    $150, I'll be selective if I get any.
    $200, screw it.

    Looking at this figure I really doubt they'd be at the $85 price to match Zeta. Part count would be too high. But if they could start churning these out at $100 like TE/Magic Square Prime then I'd be a happy camper.

    Alt mode looks great to me!

    Now the only remaining question is: How much fun will it be to transform? The only other figure I have from these guys (if they are who we all assume) is their Optimus, and I feel like that figure doesn't get enough crap for how unpleasant it is to transform. (It's almost very good, and then the last bit always just frustrates the heck out of me, especially going from truck to bot.)

    Still, given the all-too-believable reports of issues with MP-52, I'm pulling for this guy to be great. (I haven't handled the Newage seekers everyone keeps referencing, but it's unlikely they upscaled a Legends design and made it more annoying to transform, right?)

    I've got KBB Thundercracker and he's a gorgeous dark metallic blue. It's why I chose him over the other KO. Unfortunately, his plastic is crumbling :(

    Just a nitpick but I'd have like if they tried to make the bottom of the jet more realistic, even if I knew they'd never manage to get anything as clean as MP-3/11's alt mode, instead of focusing on making it as cartoon accurate as possible, even if I knew they'd never manage to get anything as clean as MP-3/11's alt mode. They did nail it way better than Takara did tho, so I appreciate the effort, and I'm using it as my Skywarp anyway.

    I already had this guy pre-ordered but seeing that alt mode got me all the more excited. I would like to see the underside more though. I'm curious if he looks like a figure with some wings slapped on top like the official.

    The only reason that these companies love these molds so much is the recolor possibilities. We'll get more than all 3, don't worry. Seriously, name one seeker mold that hasn't been recolored, lol. It's hard.

    Wasn't that released last year? Let it breathe a little, haha.

    I'm sure there are a couple of examples over the years... I doubt Takara has ever missed the recolor though. A no-recolor takara jet would be extremely hard for me to believe, lol.

    I'm interested as well in transformation. I have MP-52 and that transformation was not too fun. I've had MP-11 and MT Meteor, transformations were not too bad for those so we'll see how this one turns out. If the price is good and the transformation is fun I might go in on a Thundercracker & Skywarp if they do them.

    So far I like both modes and I'm down for a whole set. Build quality please, be good. No more loose Starscreams please.

    If this Screamer came with a Coronation set, (and if QC was good) then I’d likely be interested.

    As it is I have ER Screamer, and I’m gonna sell it because of the upcoming SS Coronation Starscream.
