    Does anyone know offhand what color the original three seeker jet nose colors were in the cartoon? I was trying to image search, but not coming up with much. It looks like Skywarp is black, Starscream is grey?? and TC is also black. Does this sound right?

    I would have guessed Starscream's was blue for sure!

    None of them have a different color nose than the rest of the plane body. So Starscream is grey, Thundercracker is blue, and Skywarp is black:

    Man, look at that crappy coloring job on Starscream's blue fins!

    Interesting. Thank you! I swear I saw another where TC's was black, but no big deal.

    This is Sunbow G1 we're talking about.
    Chances are they could be any colour of the rainbow at some point.

    Good example of miscoloring! Even back in the day I would notice some color and animation errors and be like "wha?" However, I still love the G1 cartoon for what it was. It was definitely groundbreaking for its day.
