    Starscream comes with his torso, Thundercracker comes with his arms and Skywarp comes with his legs so yes. You also get Sunstorms legs with Thunder and arms with Warp and his torso comes with the Coneheads.

    So ya pay for six figures and you'll end up with eight.

    Awesome. Thanks for the info. I did not realise Sunstorm came with the individual figures and Coneheads as well!

    I had a slight heart attack cause I thought I had paid for a IF Sunstorm but checked my invoice and it was PX Sunstorm not IF :D

    When I was at TFCon this year, one of the guys from TFSource tried to sell me the individual IF Sunstorm (the exclusive at TFCon). I told him I didn't really care for it and I already had 2 parts of it with the 3rd part expected to be included of the Coneheads package. He tried to convince me that IF was canceling the 3rd part with the Coneheads, just to make the sale. I don't know why I ever gave those guys my money.

    The G1 toys had smoke tinted canopies so these still look a little plain by those standards.

    Also Generations 3.0 Thrust, amber canopy over a chromed cockpit.

    Regardless I'm still mulling it over. I want all the jets but I'm not sure if repeating a mold four times yet again will feel very Christmas worthy.

    Got the official ones in today. As soon as the review is done, I'm swapping the heads out with the sample bodies because the colored canopies look MUCH better.

    Just ordered these guys. Excited, but really don't care for those clear canopies. :(

    Is anyone who's getting this set interested in trading the Sunstorm torso for Ghost Starscream arms & legs?

    Weird. So even the box has the amber canopies?
    I wonder if the clear canopies were a factory error.

    Not a factory error. Solicitation photos and the like are taken with extremely early samples which is what they also used for the box. Happens all the time.

    Are there adapters available that make these guys work with a tamashii stage? I know the normal seekers came with stands (They should be in the mail soonish), but these guys did not.

    Hi TJ I was wondering if there was a way to remove the canopies?

    I don't have sample sets to swap with obviously but I am good at canopy dipping so could just dip them in future with clear amber paint if it was possible to remove them without breaking/damaging them.

    My set is still coming so can't really look at how they are put together.

    Easy as hell, actually. Just a single screw on the underside of the nosecone that pops off a plate at the bottom and the canopy pops right off the top.

    Sweet. Thanks for the reply bud.

    I'll definitely colour the canopies when my order arrives.

    Unless you count the optional claw attachments like the ones that come with figma and revoltech stands nope. But I don't look in to stands much maybe their is a peg attachment to convert a tamashii default in to a 5mm.

    Appreciate the reply. I'm actually surprised they didn't include a tamashii stand style peg hole on the seekers. Other figures of theirs, like black shadow have them.

    Guess it's not a big deal, I don't usually use stands. I just figured it would make a dynamic display for a bunch of plane characters that share so much of the same molding

    Well the seekers are bigger figures they probably figure its more secure with a 5mm but their windblade and arcee mold has the more standard smaller peg size hole in their backs that works with my figma n revo stands. IF's stands themselves actually are kinda better than the tamashii ones in that respect I guess since they have the option for both. I've never seen a figma or a revo one with a 5mm option either.

    Just another bonus from getting both their coneheads and regular releases I guess. I prefer having them off stands so all 5 of my IF stands are in storage when I'm not taking photos of them :lol
