    I think there could definitely be a market for Thundercracker if Igear were to take a crack at him. If sales show well for this current trio and then possibly the Rainmakers I'm sure Igear will consider TC.

    From igear themselves. But they did not say that they will do the other 2. So I think after the rainmakers and TC, That will be the last of the seekers. But things can change... Fabe, have u heard anything new?

    I imagine they must wonder if a Starscream and/or Skywarp would sell well enough.

    Sure, some would want them without the hip kibble, and maybe whatever else iGear can bring to the table (new face sculpt? accessories?), but I'm sure quite a lot are happy with the ones they presumably already own. Pretty much anyone can get MP Starscream or Skywarp at or less than iGear prices - Thundercracker, not so much.

    What about a single release of Thundercracker then? They're doing it with Orange Creamsicle and I'm sure there'd be more of a demand for TC. Maybe I'm wishful thinking?

    Yeah, that's what I mean. I don't see why they wouldn't do Thundercracker, as long as there's a perceived market (i.e. people who can't afford $300+ for the Takara version).

    That said, they must be asking themselves if Hasbro will do another MP exclusive this side of the pond, too. It's an easy repaint...

    I think their fingers have been burnt with Skywarp unfortunately. As long as one or the other happens I'll be happy as the Takara version is insanely overpriced.

    Skywarp might be a problem as Skywarp was so cheap to get - perhaps an upgrade conversion kit to fix the legs?

    I'd have prefered a more blueish purple but in General Skywarp is Adiquate.
    Never got Starscream partly due to the price and partly as I didn't like that he was white.

    One decoed like the Henkei one would appeal to me more though. as unlike the other 3 it would be the correct colour and have decent legs.

    Sunstorm looks nice - I would love to see an acid green one made.
