    included with the coneheads seems more plausible to me, because its the harder sell. $90 vs $25 for bridgewatcher. yes, you get three seekers for that, but bridgewatcher already has a low price as incentive.

    Yes, I said it was possible.

    I just think it's more likely they will sell Acidrain + Sunstorm torso for another $40, just like they're selling Starscream + Starscream Ghost torso. Heck, they even already have the right size package inserts for that setup.

    It's the same reason they're releasing legs of ghost with arms of sunstorm and vice versa. They only need to create one package insert to use with both sets.

    That's why I think they'll just reuse the Starscream package inserts for another regular seeker (Acidrain) with a torso (Sunstorm)

    I just think it's more likely to see the popular rainmakers released that way instead of shoving it into the Coneheads box.

    Sounds like a plausible theory. I would not mind getting acid storm for $40 if it meant completing sunstorm, which looks awesome.

    And if we end up with 6 figures (Starscream, Ghost Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Sunstorm, Acidrain) for $160 (4x $40)... that's $26.67 per figure. Not bad at all.

    Now that I can check this out on a screen bigger than my tiny phone those definitely look like new heads. There hasn't been an update on the IF coneheads for awhile. If that is where they are packaging the Sunstorm torso then maybe we'll get some colored test shots soon.

    their weibo update already states that sunstorm's torso will be included with the coneheads.

    Their july surprise is something else...maybe bridgewatcher would come with parts for another figure? who knows?

    Yes, the chinese text confirmed that the Coneheads will come with the Sunstorm torso.

    In July they will reveal the 4th good news, perhaps a bonus that comes with Shockwave and Bruticus.

    This comparison makes me want MechFansToys to do their slight upsize magic to Tyrant's Wing so they'd scale better in jet mode. It wouldn't hurt my feelings for the F-22 "upgraded" bodies to be a bit taller than the old and busted F-15; they ARE "upgrades," after all.

    (I'd want that in addition to, not instead of, Iron Factory's originals, a la Ultra Magnus.)

    I have a feeling that Acidstorm/Bitstream may come with Bruticus.

    We've had Ghost/Sunstorm across four releases(SS, SW, TC, Coneheads), so it would be plausible for another two guys to be packaged with the next four releases(Shockwave and 3x Combaticons).

    "三尖头套装将附赠克隆版的身体"

    This sentence states that Sunstorm's torso will come in the coneheads set. Hope that clarifies the info.

    Wow, I thought IF's Starscream was shorter than DX9's.

    I'm liking him even more now, and really wish they were cheaper.

    Check the feet... It all depends on how you pose the figure. :)

    I got starscream for 35 USD shipped from ebay (baba), and that is without flash sales. So imagine the possibilities ;) 

    Fortunately, i only want (or have room for) Starscream, so i am moving on to Shockwave next, hopefully at 25 USD shipped or less, on ebay or at TFCon.

    Looks good and better in the taller configuration.


    I brought the issue of bicep/nullray swivel up early on in the dx9 thread in the hope they would do something about it. I would have been happy with just that articultion added(might bern stretch given transformation blablabla)... After having the hasbro seekers, i know that if you are going to have multiples of a figure they shouldn't be poorly articulated! There not a great more dx9s have over hasbros basics than feet and head swivel so.

    After looking over this photo yet again I'm convinced that someone needs to make a Masterpiece-quality and scaled version of this IDW f-22 seeker design.

    No, the Hasbro Leader scale version does NOT cut it.

    comparison thread

    iGear - IG-C01 02 03 - Con Air Raptor Squadron - Set of 3
    iGear - IG-C04 05 06 - Con Air Raptor Squadron - Set of 3

    (I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally want the Thrust from that set... it just... the F22 body with VTOL fans in the wings... oh my.... and judging by the number of stand alone Dirge/Ramjets being sold on eBay compared to 0 stand alone Thrusts, I'm not the only one.)

    And it looks like GCreations has one in the works:
