    Well, that tiny bit of a seeker alone looks like an improvement on the ones I have (PT KO of the DX9 ones, which are very nice already, with the exception of the necks). Love the double-hinged elbow.

    Ramjet's back looks rather odd, but I imagine there's method to their madness :)

    I have the Pocket Toys KO of the cone heads. I may or may not stick with them. I’m mostly good with them but could be persuaded. LOL

    But I’ve skipped Starscream and his seeker brothers because their necks looked so awkward. So I was waiting to see what MST turned out. I think that wait was rewarded. :D

    Looks promising: I like the dx9 ones a fair bit, but their legs/foot articulation leaves room for improvement. Will be interested to see more of these guys.

    Very promising! MP-quality seekers in pocket size?

    And I've been waiting for from someone... anyone! ...to make a G2 Ramjet. Looks like Magic Square just became the most likely candidate!

    The dx9 seekers have definate room for improvement, and that ramjet is already miles better, but they're too big, no? Prime size? Odd choice.

    Yes....intakes that angle forward in bot mode. I've often thought of buying Maketoys MP seekers, but I can't get past the inaccurate shoulder intakes.

    Looks good, but I’m content with my DX9 versions.

    My MFT KOs are safe unless they decide to KO these ones as well. :lol 


    These definitely look great though, and look much better than the DX9 ones to me.

    In the cad image, it looks like there's a seam down the entire front of the fuselage. If so, that's unfortunate - a seam right down the middle of Starscream's chest wouldn't look good. Don't see it on Ramjet but it's possible his transformation is significantly different because of using the nosecone on his head. Starscream's nosecone has pins that make it look like it splits and folds away.

    Other than that, looking great! Love the clean legs a la maketoys but with a better chest (vent fans and intakes that angle).

    Jet mode proportions are off, but may be ok for the conehead versions.

    if his nosecone does end up having the pins and splits in half that would be most unfortunate.

    I'm wondering if that line isn't just there to indicate the middle. It goes down the entire center of the jet and if the Conehead whose back we see is even close to the same transformation there doesn't appear to be a seam down the panel that fills in between the upper torso and the legs in plane mode. Would be nice if they'd shown just a little more of one of the non-coneheads for comparison.

    Now now, those proportions look lovely and if jet mode cleans up well enough I may do a huge Iron factory seeker sale and get those o.o
