    Can someone please do these designs in large Deluxe-Voyager size? PLEASE?

    And no, iGear doesn't count. They botched the design so hard that it doesn't count.

    Are these Seekers based on a specific comic design?

    Nice, in for all. Especially the seekers. Where's Starscream?

    Pretty cool. I like the ball jointed necks. Definitely replacing my Hastak TC & Skywarp.
    Maybe for the coneheads. Is that their Cybertronian form? The heads look different from the Spotlight Ramjet.

    Iron Factory Wing of Tyrant (Starscream)

    At first I was a little turned off by Thrust... but I noticed on Skywarp and Thundercracker that the wings are on a ball joint. Thrust should be the same, which means you could pose his wings in the higher up position.

    Ridiculously strong set of reveals today. So happy with the Decepticon focus. Very impressed with what's to come. Bring it.

    And now the DX9 versions I preordered are redundant.

    I'm so glad I put off preordering those. I still think they look better, but these are almost certainly going to be better quality and cheaper.

    Yeah, these are exciting even as someone who doesn't normally care about Coneheads. I'm stoked to continue collecting the IF lineup!

    Wow, love the Conehead trio - but the OG seekers would have to come in at the same clip as the HasTak figures to even be an option. They're way too similar to the officials to pay a premium. And you can get TC and Warp for under $10 each now.

    I forsee these being smaller than the DX9 Seekers, but more expensive.

    Exactly how much more expensive though will decide whether or not I get these guys as well as the DX9 ones.

    Wow, they really get mp aesthetics down to a tee on legends sized figures. In this size an oversized my utopia might actually work with the sizes present by if and dx9. Anyone have pics with if figures with a oversized Mt utop or that Titan metroplex?

    The waist swivel is nice. Considering how similar the seekers/coneheads look the more posing options I have the more dynamic the display I can set up. I like how the center conehead looks like he's stepping forward to deliver the finishing shot.

    People realize they are two different designs though right? IF is IDW or whatever, DX9 will be mpre G1. Very different jet modes, for example.

    Yeah, I guess it's more I don't have much affection for the Coneheads compared to say, Swindle or Soundwave. The coneheads felt like they were just background muscle in most of the G1 stuff. IDW gave Ramjet and Dirge a bit more personality, but they still bumped off Ramjet in the same issue he appeared.

    Personally, I feel better about double dipping on the Seekers because I have an attachment to G1/Sunbow versions and the IDW versions. I'll probably sell off my Hastak versions of the trio, but I feel like I'll find a way to justify picking up both IF's and DX9's seekers.
