    Damn it, I told myself I was passing on these. The Siege molds are fun....but these look so good. I need some conehead reveals to make me look the other way.

    I thought the same thing and was sorely tempted. It’s so hard to be responsible sometimes.

    The feeling you get when you sense a possible Superion Combiner around the corner.

    Here's to hoping that Skywarp keeps his neutral face and not his permanent screaming-in-eternal-torment face for the final release!

    Looks like a pre-order listing from the estimated arrival time.

    Edit: Or just widely varied or unpredictable shipping times:

    "Estimated between Thu. May. 21 and Thu. Jul. 2"

    Every fiber of my being is telling me to get this and Earthrise Starscream. It's saying "this is the definitive Seeker Trio in the scale you want, get them now and you'll never feel compelled to get another set of the three."

    But, like... I can't. I'd just be buying it out of obligation. The mould is objectively a great interpretation of the characters in those bodies, easily the best outside of MP-scale, but I'm just so over G1.

    What about this suggests Superion?

    As others said, Bluestreak and Prowl are obvious candidates. Inferno and Hauler works if they want a higher price point. I could also see something a little more like Barricade and Hot Shot where we get post-G1 characters in the neo-G1 line. CDF Scattorshot and Red Alert (Impactor and DoubleDealer), for example, or a MW Mirage/Prowl two-pack from the Siege Mirage mold

    I'm really looking forward to this but the screaming face on Skywarp looks really stupid. If I can find one, I might grab another Starscream, make a head switch switch and pose screaming Starscream staring down Galvatron's barrel.

    Thanks, I was going to ask.


    I'm feeling that as well. I was already planning on getting ER Starscream, and I really like this version of Skywarp, so Thundercracker is coming along for the ride and that'll be it. I don't think there'll be any other version that can entice me after this.

    I love these guys but as I've said before... I HAD to fix that chest!... that neck collar makes him look boxy and looks better in jet mode without it too...

    These look so freaking amazing.

    I finally realized where this mold for me just destroys the Siege mold (aside from basically everything minus a little bit of articulation and the arm proportions) is the wings.
    the Siege molds wings are just ugly beyond ugly, particularly with the UHPS-side being forward in robot mode.

    The stripes make the man (or in this case, make the thuggish minions)

    Speaking of the Classics vibe, where is CHMS at? Time to give the multitude of colors we're not otherwise going to get. This is definitely getting tempted, I'll happily replace my Classics jets IF they make the Coneheads - the ''original six'' is a minimum for me to switch over. Even better if they do Sunstorm and Nacelle too.

    Skywarp in his correct colors? A new Skywarp that I don't have to completely repaint myself? I won't believe it until I actually have one in my hands.

    The set looks fantastic, and I'm excited to add them with Starscream. However, this is 100% absolutely the last time that I'm getting Seekers for my collection. G1, Classics, Masterpiece... Every Hasbro line that's released all three in the last 20 years, probably. I've got them.
