    Currently available at Target.com for $65 plus tax with free shipping. $10 will come off price at checkout. Seems like a great deal to me, with Target Redcard it was $66 and change with tax.

    Link for those in need.

    Had to order at that price. Came out to $69 and change after tax with the free shipping and $10 discount. The discount expires the 11th I think. Love coneheads, had to get this set.

    Thanks for the heads up. Had to be ordered. Been sitting on just the old TRU reissue of Dirge for years, now I'll finally have a complete set!

    Nice price for this trio!

    I have to.ask, am I the only one who folds the cone down in robot mode? I know they're supposed to have it up, hence the name cone heads, but I never liked it on the toys, I only had thrust growing up out of any of the seekers but he always had the cone down.

    Seen these on the shelf the other day at my usual go-to place.
    Along with Trypticon.
    Haven't seen the Blaster & Perceptor set yet though.

    Did Has/Tak ever release all three of these previously (even if individually) during a reissue phase?

    No, only Dirge has been reissued. Ramjet and Thrust, if I recall were going to be but were canceled when the Commemorative Line was.

    Ramjet and Thrust were released previously in a limited run. I think I picked these up in 05

    This. Ramjet and Thrust were the last two I needed as well. I glady paid the full price when Target posted them and it was well worth it to finally have a full set of G1 seekers...and Sunstorm. Now I have an extra Dirge. (MISB TRU reissue).

    This set is killing me, especially at the $70 shipped price. Over the last 2 years I have been seriously downsizing my collection. I used to have all 6 original G1 seekers but have since sold off 5 of them. Now I only have the G1 Starscream reissue reppin' the 84 Seekers and G1 Ramjet for the coneheads.

    If you mean Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp, then no, it's just the three "coneheads" for now.

    That is correct, the only reissues of G1 Thrust and Ramjet that were released were by Takara, and they were expensive exclusives. I ended up getting the Thrust reissue, but could never find the Ramjet for a good deal. This box set of all 3 is less than what I paid for Thrust by himself over 10 years ago. Although, the exchange rate wasn't as favorable back then as it is now.
