    Hope they'll do an SG Thundercracker version.

    Wait... are we expecting the other two Seekers that quickly? I thought there’d be at least a month or two between releases! If they all release before XMas that’d be awesome.

    Only Skywarp is listed as incoming on ShowZ. Maybe they messed up and sent out notices for Thundercracker instead and then sent them out for Skywarp.

    So even though I got notices for both only Skywarp is incoming.

    Interesting... yep, TaoBao has Thundercracker still listed as deposit only. Skywarp is listed at full price. If he's not shipping right now, he's gotta be pretty close.

    And I just realised, because I'm getting bot and alt mode for Seekers and Coneheads... I'm going to end up with 12 space bridge pieces without having to delve into random colour releases!! From what I can see of the pics, it looks like either 10 or 12 will do a full circle?

    I don't really have room on my desk at work for all the Legends scenery stuff but I'm tempted to pick up a Teletran for the Autobots just to match the Decepticon space bridge. I'm probably passing on the thrones but I love me a Teletran 1.

    As seen in the manual for the Space Bridge you need 12 pieces. WIth the 3 seekers, 3 coneheads and the translucent seeker aka Ghost Starscream, with maybe a translucent part for the Space Bridge, you got 7. Are they planning 5 recolors? Or are they going to release them seperate?

    Well I’ll definitely have 6, so at least that will be enough for half and I can stick it against the back of a shelf.

    I don’t want to go crazy with these like I did with the IF Seekers, but if the repaints turn out to be beautiful I might be in trouble.

    I'll be selling my stands off for whoever needs them (will only have three). Im sure some others will do the same, so people shouldn't have a lot of trouble finding some extras, I don't think.

    Acid Storm, Ion Storm, Nova Storm, Sunstorm, and Bitstream technically all appeared in G1. Maybe them?

    G2 Starscream and G2 Ramjet seem to be popularly requested figures.
    I would imagine multiple deco's for Starscream - G1, G2, Clear, Sleep/dead.
    I imagine most collectors will end up with 6 (3 seekers and 3 coneheads) giving a solid half circle for a shelf display.

    But of course there's the full "Skittles - taste the rainboow" effect for different Seekerso_O :

    It's really hard to resist ordering them for just the jets.

    The contours of the stylized F-15 are awesome. The way the inward angle of the wingtips matches that of the horizontal stabilizers, the sweep of the nose and cockpit. It looks like it's screaming along at mach 5, just sitting on the base.

    That accessory storage in the base is absolute genius! And once I have all three Seekers, I can use the stands for that shell game and sucker geeks out of enough money for the other dozen of dozens of Seeker bois.

    So going by the instructions you need 12 different seekers to make the space bridge, and for some reason it shows how to put the coronation gear on even though it doesn't come with it?

    That's pretty expensive considering you can get a purple hemorrhoid pillow off Amazon for only $17.97.

    Yep. Coronation gear comes with the translucent version for some unknown reason.
    You need 12 for a full circle, but many are thinking that with six (three Seekers and three Coneheads) you can do a kind of half-circle on the shelf up against a wall?

    Would be how I'd go with it, 12 is a bit much

    I have no intention of getting 12 of this mold so I might just sell my space bridge parts. Seems like a good way to offset cost a bit and to be honest I am not into dioramas anyway.

    Edit: Unless of course it's diorama-rama.
