    The MP Seeker mold looked great with MP01.

    But I think the MP Seekers look too big next to MP10.

    Since my MP collection is now primarily scaling with MP10, I'm liking the now-too-large-looking MP Seekers a bit less.

    I love Starscream/Skywarp/Thundercracker enough to have many different representations of the characters regardless of scale. I do not feel so strongly about the Coneheads.

    In addition to my MPs, I have a lot of Classics-sized figures, where the leaders and so on are around Voyager size. I don;t have good Seekers in this size class, but the iGear Raptor Squadron looks perfect.

    The iGear Raptor Coneheads can be my "definitive" Coneheads, because they look great, and I'll prefer them to my MP iGear Coneheads because their size will look more appropriate in at least one section of my collection (the Raptors match the Voyager/Deluxe Classics better than the MP Coneheads match up to MP10).

    Since I only care about having one representation of those characters, I'd be more inclined to sell off my MP-sized iGear Coneheads.

    Make sense?

    Hey, if you're seriously considering selling your coneheads, and are willing to sell them seperate, I'd love a PM on how much you're looking for for PPO3-A (Thrust if I'm using the wrong name).

    I'm thinking the same, except "or just Thundercracker"… the tale of Susan Journeyer must be completed!

    Damn it. I initially was going to just get starscream. Then I decided I wanted the big three seekers. Now I'm seriously considering getting all six. They'd look so awesome on display together.

    Exactly bro. I started out just ordering skywarp. To me it feels like a combiner where I want the whole set or something is missing. Bad thing is I will have to pick em up one at a time for now cuz so much other stuff is coming. Still hoping they break up the coneheds as it would make it easier for me t get them.

    Agreed. These guys are awesome. I would be ok if I only got the big three. But the others looks so nice I really want them too. It's like if I get one of the first three, I need all three. Then if I got one of the next three, I'd need all six.

    Crystal!
    That is exactly what I do!
    Still looking for the perfect Megatron and Optimus. But iGear PP-01 will do, he will scale great with Raptors.

    Gah. Dammit. Well, Igears site says mid may, so I'm guessing early June to allow for time to ship to bbts. No worries.. Only a couple more weeks or so.

    thats the problem with seekers...for me its all or none. the thing is we think we can just get 1, or maybe 3. it never works that way. looking at them you'll always see whats missing. the only exception is if the only one you get is starscream...i think some people might be ok with just him and preten the other ones dont exist. lol

    Where is the cheapest I can get these? Also, does anyone have a group buy going on?

    I want all 6 but I will not pay over $500.

    As for the cheapest place, not sure, I've pretty much seen the same price everywhere. How do you plan on getting all 6 and not pay over $500.

    Edit: nevermind I know what you meant

    I hate to say this, but Screamer looks terrible. It's like they tried to blend Animated with Generations and failed miserably. That headsculpt in particular is the worst part!

    The worst part is the arms in my opinion.
