    Hey, not too many post of how good Greenscream looks like at hand. Can you take a couple more pictures to showcase for those interested in this color version?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, I may have been too late to the party. don't seem to be able to find any Starscreams, Thundercrackers or Skywarps (non-transparent) from YM for sale anywhere.

    In terms of rain makers, was sunstorm the only one that was ever made? I don't seem to find any actually released bit storms or hot links for sale.

    I will now! I am a newbie when it comes to many of these e-markets. I was relying almost exclusively on two or three Canadian websites for simplicity (or laziness). without having any experience, I was/am worried about import duties and brokerage fees ruining what looks to be a deal.

    Sadly TF-Direct are out of stock as well on Screamer :( 

    Ebay may be the way to go for the Seekers

    Hi All. New to this thread. I have a TRU exclusive Starscream on the way and naturally I was looking for Thundercracker and Skywarp to compliment him. What are your recommendations? I have looked through the thread some, but wanted to get some conversation going again. KBB or Yes model? I've seen recommendations for both. Then what about the coneheads? I've seen Yes model Thrust with red missiles on his arms. That's a little off-putting. What suggestions do you all have?

    Thanks.

    Yes Model will give you the MP-11 seekers you seek.

    Thanks. What about the newer versions with the additional detailing?

    It seems the newer versions with the additional detailing are the only (BB7) versions being sold now (someone please prove me wrong; I hate them). It is a matter of personal taste I suppose whether you like them or not. Personally, I don't but take a look at the pic I have attached to get an idea of what is now standard. upload_2018-2-19_18-59-6.png

    Thanks. Yes it looks odd. Pretty noticeable. Why do they look that way? Do the coneheads have that also or just TC and SW?

    personally, I like it. More realistic.

    But are those out yet or still pre-orders?

    As far as I am aware it's just TC and SW though I may be wrong. My guess is that they look that way because YM/BB7 are trying to spruce them up to keep interest in a product which is close to saturation point in the market? Perhaps also to make them stand out over the more plainly decorated MT seeker(s)? These are guesses. I really don't know. I just wish they hadn't because I was holding on to see what MT Meteor was like before buying my seekers and now I want them they are just too busy and over the top for me with all that stuff on them. Maybe on the OS RH versions it's fine but not on MP scale IMO.
