    Hi all,

    So we know we are getting an FoC style Starscream. Has Hasbro said anything about a repaint into Thundercracker and/or Skywarp? I'm just wondering if I should buy 3 with the intention of repainting 2 of them haha.

    Sorry if this has been asked before.

    Honestly I can't say. Thought for sure we'd get a UM out of the WFC Op mold, but didn't. It's still too early really to tell since they just started back up with the generations line. My guess is if we do get either they will either be out somewhere around mid year 2013 or as exclusives.

    Then again Hasbro might say screw it and never do them and then Takara does them two years from now like Classics UM.

    Depends on how well Starscream sells, I suppose. Takara might bite on the repaints, but not so sure Hasbro will since neither characters was in FoC.

    They'll likely do either TC or Skywarp and Takara will do the other one (and eventually, both)

    ...and one of them will end up some type of expensive exclusive. Still, I'd like to have the option for all three.

    If they don't make repaints of both Skywarp and Thundercracker, they're just being jerks.

    Given HasTak's track record of recent years, we'll probably see one but not both. Probably Skywarp since Thundercracker has been the Seeker repaint of choice recently.

    Don't know about any of you guys, but I'm getting sick of constantly having to buy seekers. Enough is enough for me. I'm done with them. :lol

    And the one we'll see will likely be an exclusive.

    I buy seekers because I like them. What's forcing you to keep buying seekers? :D

    I'd be down with any seeker they decide to make, so long as we get Thundercracker and Skywarp 1st, lol

    maaayyyyybe *shifty eyed*
    allthough if ye noticed i never once said Thundercracker or Skywarp, i mentioned the slightly more obscure Sunstorm and Air Warriors, those guys are very unlikely to make it out to retail

    This mold looks so much better than the Classics mold. I gladly awaiting the milking of these molds for the next 6, 7 years.
