Is there any reasonable way to obtain the original 3 seekers in the same line?

    If you just want the three seekers for the characters and don't care about articulation and that stuff,you can go ahead and get the G1 seekers.Otherwise,I'd search for the CHUG seekers on Ebay and Amazon (but I assure you,there will be scalper prices)

    These two are good choices.

    Movie Seekers aren't expensive.
    Robot Masters Seekers may be, but at least Skywarp and TC come in a two pack.
    Armada has a trio.
    Cybertron has TC and Warp in one, and Starscream in another mold, so that doesn't match OP's criteria.
    Machine Wars has TC and Warp sharing a mold, but Star in another too.
    Masterpiece has Star and Warp but no TC.
    Universe (both original and the modern stuff) may be an option too, depending. Universe 1 Skywarp is interesting though.

    Because its one of the worst official figures ever released, and its godawful expensive.

    Honestly, go with the movie line. Great figures, and two out of the three can probably still be had for retail price. Even Skywarp, while import price, isn't aftermarket import price, and probably costs about the same as what you'd pay for a US version of one of the other Seekers in another line.

    I hope that Skywarp gets re-released in the next Generations line, I'm going to get Thundercracker next month, and hope he is not out of stock until then. I can't afford him right now :( 

    I checked TFWiki recently and it seems that they never released all three seekers at once, regarding Henkei/Classics/etc.

    I have all 6 Seekers in both the Hasbro and Henkei releases. I didn't do anything unreasonable to get them. Tax Returns are for spending, and spending in chunks.

    For a bit over 100 bucks you can get the CHMS Henkei Seekers, which is pretty reasonable. I paid something like 90 bucks for my Classic Skywarp because I was being a bit impatient. Reasonable is going to be pretty subjective when getting the actual ones, I believe.

    I hate the Henkei stuff...the chrome kills it for me completely, so I personally wouldn't recommend them...but if you're on a budget and don't feel like paying close to three digits for a Seeker then the Henkei KOs are a good choice.
