    The jet modes are nice, but the finished bot mode does look off. The head is too big. I'd love to see MMC or FP take the Tetrajets on.

    Yeah, I'm with most of you. Jets look amazing. Transformation is more than I expected. Gripes are head size and face, plus odd below-the-waist proportions. It's shocking how many figures these days have too-short legs, and waists that are too low. It IS shocking anyone can pull out a G1 looking bot out of that jet. Bravo for that. I just hope they can make a couple of slight tweaks... since I don't want to have to buy a 4th party head for this 3rd party toy. Heh.

    Still, I might pick them all up if they are competitive. I always loved the tetrajets.

    A transformation has very complicated. Yes and a lot of time at it all goes away. Yes and they must to release Acid Storm.

    If nothing else it's nice to see the Tetrajets.

    IMO..
    Impressive engineering but the transformation does not look fun and the alt mode needs a bit of flare added to the panel lines to jazz it up a bit. In the end I hope the canopy would get to be transparent but overall my verdict is these will not sell in big 3P numbers.

    Actually, it sounds somehow like the plastic in a Yamato 1/60 VF Valkyrie. It is not like the plastic of a regular Transformers, but not necessarily fragile, more like the parts of an injection-molded plastic model...

    Yeah, it would be great if they could make the transformation a little simpler. Fiddly transformations may be interesting in the beginning, but they cause laziness later... And I personally like to transform figures multiple times.

    Banshee reminds me Gundam, but with that in mind, Skywarp is the one that should have been called Banshee =PPPP

    I guess I don't have the bias of handling anything they've made before.

    Depending on price, these are totally insta-preordered.
    These look great to me.
    It also helps that I don't have a whole lot of other seekers right now.

    I have their Arcee. Personally, I like her. Admittedly, she is fragile, but as a figure goes, she's not bad. Certainly not as bad as many would have you believe.

    That being said, knowing I'm a fan of at least one of their works...

    Needlessly complex and out of proportion all over itself.

    It's cool they went for the Tetrijet look, but the style looks a little too anime. The head just looks odd.

    What's the price on these?

    I think it's just me, but the proportions seems slightly off.

    I think they're definitely cooler than the FOC Seeker molds, hands down!

    Sounds like they'll be more popular with the fans if they just go and release them in the Rainmakers colors.

    If I didn't feel like I needed to save my money for all the combiners coming out from 3rd parties I'd probably totally be getting these.
    Hmmmmm, maybe as they show us more, I might change my mind.

    It's a neat idea, but looks way too fiddly and kibbly for me.

    Exactly this, and for that matter, I would realllly love if any of these companies other than Fansproject would venture away from the seekers and megs and Op all the time.

    Neat for those that want them, I guess.

    I think that those big curved wings should have had some line detail on them.
    It looks kind of bland with them being so smooth.
