    Just ordered Thundercracker. Trying out the mold. My SS is a heavily modded MT, but TC and Swarp are still MP11. I love the 11 mold both modes, but these 3 I wouldn't mind having a jet mode too.

    I have a brand new Starscream that is available for sale. No wing fillers though. I bought it before they released those. Anyone interested is welcome to send me a message

    Does the discounted price of these figures mean that this company will never do the coneheads? This company is now Star Toys?

    As I understand it, the designer is now startoys. Now whether bmb freelance his work or hired him direct, we have no way of knowing. Also dont think we know what, if anything, ST has in the pipeline after blitzwing

    Just wondering has anyone had problems with the plastic on these being cracked out of the box in any places? had thundercracker and skywarp boxed since the day I got them and been trying to sell them for nearly a year had them packed so I could weigh them and been packed for the most part of last year and sold the other day , got this picture from the buyer and honestly the way it is cracked it don't look like user error and I believe he didn't do it... if you zoom in the inside of the crack looks clean as though the plastic was brittle

    Well a piece finally broke on me. Do you know where I could replace this part

    1000030050.jpg
    It's the joint hinge that connects to the back of the leg piece..
    (I removed the pins so that I use my temporary piece from either skywarp or thundercracker but I like the full set so I am still going to need to replace that broken piece regardless.

    Anybody know how I could possibly replace it? I'm sure I'm not the first one to have that piece broken. I don't know if it's too specialized what should I do.

    I decided to try and transform skywarp tonight, but wow he is fighting me. The main issue is this piece of the cockpit. I think it is supposed to slide up all the way, but it won't budge any further. Is this a known issue? Any suggestions?

    Good grief, that was frustrating! I was fighting that thing all night. After taking a closer look, as it turns out, the company put the slider on upside down. I had to unscrew and disassemble a ton, punch out some pins, flip the slider, put it all together again, and voila! But wow was that insane.

    Nice work getting that sorted. I recently got all 3 and am debating whether to keep or sell my Takara Seekers.

    Feels like I don’t need both but I do like both

    I'm afraid you're best option is to have someone 3D print you a replacement. Even if you can find someone willing to sell a junker, it will certainly cost more than just having the part made. I recommend you reach out to this fella on FB:

    upload_2024-4-27_10-4-24.png

    I had a similar situation with a broken hinge on my Gigapower Slag and he was able to print me a replacement part as well as a few extras at no charge. He's also a TF collector, but if he doesn't have a DS Seeker you'll have to mail the part to him so he can recreate it in a print file. His prices were very reasonable and he was very thorough with communicating details about what I wanted (color/plastic type, etc).


    I have all three seekers and they are never getting transformed, at least not by me. They are one of the only molds I own that I flat out will not touch beyond basic posing.

    I have been looking for a while too. There used to be a 3rd party that made them but stopped producing around covid.
