    Jeez these all look wonderful! The faces really shine through ESPECIALLY considering the scale, the thuggish brows of the coneheads wouldnt be out of place on any MP variant of them.
    With all the accessories these almost give me a figma vibe, which is a very good thing. I might be grabbing that screamer when he comes out to give his coronation get-up a place in my collection. I have the Walmart MP Screamer from way back, and i love his colors, but a lack of any cape or crown takes a few points away from him for me. Also the head is a little bland. Even at a legends scale these look leagues better than some of the mp's on the market.

    They look the best between the MS/NA/DX9 Seekers, but I loathe how they handled the landing gear.
    Molds cost a lot to make, and who knows how well this past year's figures have sold for them. I know I'm getting pretty impatient for them to put something new out too, but I chock that up to readying a dual MP & Legends Megatron release.
    It'll be up to your personal scale preference. I went with the MFT Grapple, Hoist, and Magnus because the MST trucks are silly small next to Optimus. However, the larger Hoist & Grapple break Sunbow scale. MFT's Blaster is taller than MST OP, so I stuck with MST on him.
    Comparisons with MST/MFT/NA/DX9:

    Alt mode trucks are all MST, except DX9 Nemesis. All trucks in the bot shot are MST, except the GT Optimus:

    Mix and matching is kinda necessary to get everyone you want, or to get the scale you like. It's fantastic having options.
    Conehead wings are the worst with getting in the way. I really hate how encumbering the leg-wings are, but at least one or two of NA's Conies look like their wings can hinge backwards.

    Nice. The chins are a little wide. But the overall face/head proportions are right on point. I think these figures would look great deluxe-sized. Are "Golden Lagoon" versions being planned/released?

    These look great! If I didn’t have Iron Factory’s, I’d be all in.

    Wow, I don't collect Legends but these turned out nice enough to tempted me. The sublime photography also helps massively, as it does with DX9 (their Gabriel album is one of my favorite promotional albums of all time).

    "Look the best" ... that's super subjective though.. I think you were mentioning you didn't love all the panels, but I on the other hand really don't like how flat and blocky MS's is, and the proportion on the legs so literal and lacking in flair. And then add that the MS matte finish isn't as nice to me as the harder, more reflective NA plastic...

    Of course it is. We're giving opinions here, which by nature are always subjective. ;)

    What is the difference between Standard Lucifer and the limited version with the coronation set?

    These look better than anyone could reasonably expect them to.
    But at $50 each they\'re way outside what I\'m willing to pay for them.

    Super excited to get these. I haven't had all 6 seekers since Chug and sold them all off when the first MP car bot came out.


    Other options will get you them for $36-40 each.

    i'll grab a few to test out, they look great. NA was originally supposed to be a stop gap for me while waiting for MS to release their toys, but now i'm not sure i even want MS since NA is so good now.

    Oh ok I thought you were talking about the Seekers specifically since that's the thread we are in. And I just checked again right now, can still add the Seekers to cart.

    I've only seen a bundle on BBTS for the three coneheads (I admit I didn't look anywhere else).
    Buying all three in a set from them makes them $48 each.
    Not much of a savings at all.

    NA H16 Beelzebul, H17 Mammon, & H18 Mephisto Set

    First time I saw these, I thought they weren\'t Legend size.

    Ok. I may have to get that Starscream. And Mammon is the only other Seeker I had when I was a kid, so I have a bit of a soft spot for him. Don\'t remember the actual G1 character\'s name, TBH. I just liked the colours and how he looked in jet mode. I used to keep the cone down and pointed back because I wasn\'t a fan of the dunce-cap looking cone head.

    Definitely not there. Check the China sellers like Show Z or Baba:

    Pre-order Newage NA H16 Beelzebul H17 Mammon H18 Mephisto mini Action figure

    I got my set, though I admit it was during the 11/11 sale, for about $36 each shipped.

    To me, when you get to $50 for any one legend figure or even a set of diorama stuff, that's a bit much and I start to weigh what MP figure I can buy for that price. The only exception I might make at the $50 price tag is OP with his trailer.

    Be advised that according to NA’s Facebook page the coronation set will be included with the transparent/ghost version of Starscream.
