    In my 6-year-old head canon, generic purple seeker was always blitzwing to me, largely because he was my only toy jet.

    Forget the rainmakers/etc., come on Takara, make this guy, I’d have to buy him!

    Has there, or is there official announcements out there as to what is being released in 2022? I only know of Skywarp in January, Nightbird and a Skids-redeco.

    I waited patiently. Hopefully it’ll arrive by Wednesday. The Twitter pics made it too good to resist.

    He looks great. Always been my favourite of the Seekers on account of his comparative scarcity when I was a kid (I had the other two for ages before I finally stumbled across him in a random supermarket of all places). Really like the blue and that they have the grey forearms and black feet/head. Finally a solid blue for the nosecone too!

    Omegalock got it in a month early, so I paid off the balance (saved £3 with my new membership) and it'll hopefully be shipping early next week. All three are going to look great together (sorry Maketoys!).

    As lovely as this guy looks I can't afford to get him right now, some of these pictures look awesome though!

    I have mp52 so that'll do for now, have they improved anything over mp52? For instance the feet etc?

    Only ones I'm aware of for 2022 is Skywarp (unless they bump him up to December), Nightbird Shadow in February and Crosscut in March.
    I do not believe Skyfire or Raiden have actual release dates yet, and CJ has not even been officially acknowledged by Takara yet.

    Omegalock has always had Skywarp listed for December, so who knows, we may end up getting it in November.

    Just noticed the weird little sky blue pieces near the top of the knee. Odd colour choice, as those should match the grey used elsewhere. Minor thing though, it's still gorgeous.

    The release date for Skywarp is December, retailers are probably counting in Christmas and New Years putting availability to January.

    When I was a kid, the only seeker I ever had was Ramjet. As an adult I was late to the masterpiece game and didn’t want to pay Thundercracker’s prices. Seeing these pictures makes me so excited to get him in hand. What a fantastic looking figure! Mine may be a month away, so please keep the pictures coming!

    Yeah, it's weird. Takara usually sticks pretty close to the animation model colouring (at least lately) rather than random episodes, but again it's a pretty minor thing given that so much is right. I'm actually getting impatient seeing all of these pics!

    Good Lord, can you imagine how all three will look together when Skywarp is released?

    I named him Downburst and he was the template for all the background seeker drones in the first three episodes of the cartoon.

    Kind of weird I was expecting a review of some sorts even a quick one. Maybe tonight or tomorrow we'll see some stuff like a quick write up or picture review. No complaints so far or images of QC complaints but it would be nice to know if they confirm the adjustments in his knee and ankles. I'm taking the ankles are better from the pictures themselves as most dont have them resting on his feet.
