    Not doing G2 Ramjet would be a sin.

    Will his optics be like from the original toy of 1993 / 1994 or from that very first 3D TF commercial?[​IMG]

    Transmutate is certainly a surprise, especially since I thought WFC wouldn’t go past Beast Wars season 1. However, I guess the Selects line can do whatever. I thought I’d never get a Transmute unless I somehow tracked down the old build-a-figure toy. Looking forward to seeing how she turns out.

    How about a translucent Ghost Starscream (to possess your Kingdom Waspinator) or a gilded redeco Golden Lagoon Starscream?

    I hope transmutate keeps the flip-mask from Paleotrex to reveal her cute Timelines face.

    It was my understanding the seekee Siege mold was retired. If not I would like to see Bitstream and Sunstorm.

    I think the leaks stated we will get G2 Ramjet and possibly Earth Sunstorm. The only question I have is who the Dirge and Thrust toolings will end up being as Hasbro likes to get 2 runs out of each tooling. I am fairly certain we will get repaints of the seekers for another 3 years like the old classics mold got.

    It pisses me off that they are on the second repaint of Ramjet when most of us still can't even get the stupid God damned 2 pack unless we want to pay scalpers insane Mark ups on ebay. Total bullshit. Get your shit together Hasbro.

    Don't make any more of the boxes that sell out on Amazon in a couple minutes then goes to eBay for 3 times the price.

    Marketing - "quick before anyone can complete their collection of G1 characters that we've been doing for last two years because we made so many exclusives that we completely under produced things like seekers which obviously never sell! Which to G2!!"

    Hasbro executive - "Brilliant! I'll have the workers retool the mold immediately!"

    i mean, if you want them as cheap redecos instead of new molds, sure. cos that's all transmutate is.

    Supposedly the Siege Seeker mold is being used for SG Starscream (which makes sense, unlike Goldbug and Megatron). Sunstorm and Bitstream really need the Siege molds as well, since Hotlink started that trend and it’d need nice if the trio matched.

    Having just picked up Sandstorm, this is my first experience with the ER Seeker mold. It feels like a major step back compared to the Siege Seekers. Much less articulation. I’ll be sticking with the Classics G2 Ramjet.

    Glad to hear that SG Starscream is back to the Siege mold.

    I would guess the Transmutate is a repaint from one of the fossilizer molds.  Be interesting to see which mold it would be.  This would make it the second repaint for that character.  The first being the repaint of the TF Prime Arcee mold, which I liked.  This truly is the year of the repaints.

    If the leaks are correct then it’s Paleotrex

    How many seeker repaints of Core Starscream would you buy?

    Because I'd like at least four different sets of three.

    - Pretender Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker
    - Thrust, Dirge, Ramjet
    - Acid Storm, Nova Storm, Ion Storm
    - Action Master Thundercracker, G2 Starscream, G2 Ramjet

    I already used Siege TC as Bitstream.

    But I can’t figure out for anything why they have done two Ramjet reprints and haven’t done an ER Sunstorm.

    With G2 ramjet, that means that the only seekers I still really want would be Nacelle (Thrust wings and Starscream head), Slipstream, Action Master Thundercracker (probably my biggest want), navy/sky blue ramjet, and Sunstorm and Bitstream (preferably from the siege mold to go with Hotlink).

    I'd mainly just want every seeker to have a nice team of three (I'd put Nacelle and Slipstream with Redwing, G2 ramjet and AM Thundercracker with Sandstorm, then hopefully two other dudes like jungle Starscream and blackout for sky blue ramjet).

    Ghost Starscream would also be cool, but if they give us a G2 or action master Starscream I'd settle for making that his ghost.

    None. I want to focus on the voyager ones, of which we already have, what, 12 seeker characters already? Yeah, no. We don’t have many named characters left to finish that much less start down another path.

    to reply top the whole seeker conversation in general

    I just want all the seekers. Keep pumping out the earthrise mold Hasbro, ill buy them! lol

    That being said I'm hoping that Hasbro is actually aiming to just redo the whole Classics Deluxe Seeker lineup at the voyager scale with the Earthrise mold. Which in all honesty isn't actually that many seekers. Most of the uses of that mold (which made it feel like it was a never ending parade of seekers) were all the original 6 seekers, which got like 4 uses each on just redoing their standard color schemes over and over again. (not counting g2/SG/alternate repaints.)

    not counting the endless versions of the original 6 seekers, there were

    Ghost Starscream
    G2 Starscream
    G2/AM Thundercracker
    G2 Ramjet
    Nacelle
    Acidstorm (already done in siege)
    Sunstorm
    Bitstream
    Hotlink (already done in siege, kinda, not accurate)

    That's it (i dont think im missing any)

    Im also hoping for a Slipstream from the earthrise mold, but I'm not holding my breath due to the retooling she would require. Though in all honesty she wouldn't need a whole lot, minimum shed need a new head and chest, which is like 3 parts. I would be hoping for a little more due to personal preference but just the head and chest would go so far in changing the identity of the figure at just a glance.

    I wonder if we'll get Beast Wars Uprising/Timelines Transmutate from RED Arcee.
