    I'm wondering if ym might tackle howling meteor in the future, considering they've dabbled with MT's headmasters.

    Would be great if we got multiple inexpensive variants of that mold.

    I'd love to see true MP/3P MP versions of these.

    they are close but still not quite there

    it's going to take a wizard engineer to come up with a tetra jet seeker that looks like it should in both modes :lol

    Has anyone done an MP Seeker in Action Master Thundercracker colors? Because that needs to be a thing. I need friends to see that on my shelf and vomit at its awesomeness.

    Are these just customs or are they actually available? If so, where can I find them?

    I have each of the 7 impossible toys seekers with a couple extras. I was tempted to take a crack at dying and repainting some of the extras to be the cartoon rain makers. A few years ago, I picked up the KO CHUG seekers (CHMS?) that were in the bright yellow, lime green and grey sky blue colors. It’d be nice if the recent sunstorms had a flamethrower accessory.

    I think Maas toys’ earliest pics of the tetra jets were close to what I was looking for, but recent pics went into a different direction (one I’m far less interested in).

    If people are buying them, then why stop. I bought my 6 seekers in 2017.

    Betting that there is still a pretty good market for them if they keep pumping them out.

    I wish they would make a sunstorm based on the igear deco or the orange CHMS deco. None of the "official" deco's look right.

    Hasbro's is a Banana Split, and Takara's doesnt have enough white and isnt a dark enough orange. I need my cremesicle. lol

    Also its kinda a shame no one has ever reverse engineered the head and gave it different expressions. Guess that is something for takara to do with the v3 design. *shrugs*

    Actually @ShowZStore is there a way you can suggest they make a sunstorm based on the Robot Hero oversized one? I'm wanting a sunstorm based on that deco, but with the traditional starscream wing deco instead of the over-the-top flame pattern.

    Has anybody pulled apart any MP seeker nose?
    I have one with a broken radar but not sure on how to fix it or pull it apart.

    where have you broken it? before the pin that holds it in place? the nose is a bitch to take aprt on the official seekers because the panel that hides the screw is glued in tight , not sure about the ko's , the panel is on the right side where the metal bit that houses the landing gear is hinged

    Thanks a lot for the help!
    The figure it's actually an Igear Skywarp,not sure if this is the same as the KO,but hopefully this pics would be useful.
    The previous owner tried to glue it toghether.
    I was hoping to buy a junker Walmart Skywarp to fix it. IMG_0531.JPG IMG_0532.JPG IMG_0533.JPG

    aaahh then the caps over the screws should be easy to remove the igear seekers are not glued solid unlike the official which has the strongest glue in the world holding the caps in :lol  the link below might be of some help @The Dark Seeker did post a load of pictures showing how to take mp seekers apart but can't find them

    Customs: - Masterpiece Seeker mold - Post your advice here!
