    What makes it more amusing, it's basically what they look like in the show.

    Don't know that I care enough for this mold to drop $90 on a 3-Pack of it, but I may get bored. Decided I didn't need Redwing, so unlike the classic seeker mold, I am already starting down the road of not being a completionist on these.

    You guys do understand how transformers work right? They scan an object and then become that object. They do this in order to disquise themselfs. How would the cone heads become modified f-15 if those planes never existed? What were they scanning?

    Again in the marvel comic the cone heads are on cybertron and were not on the ark they travel to earth via space bridge and never change alt. mode.

    Thrust and wind blade have almost the same plane design, would you say that windblade has an earth mode?

    That would be interesting to see not only these guys but could we get a Conehead and Welcome Committee sets as well for the G2 fans out there a G2 Set.That would be great to see these sets sold in some retail places or online retail.Mu thoughts this is alot better then Unicron no offense to anyone but these guys are very obscure and I am surprised Hasbro is even doing them especially in a set.

    This would have been one hell of a set if hasbro wasn't so lazy to actually color these figures in something better then the KO cartoon crappy coloring. Take a minute to watch CHUG acid storm and build on that instead of these garbage versions. What a waste of plastic.

    I don’t care what the marvel Comic has and I don’t think Hasbro cares either. I’m referring to the original cartoon/toy line. And watching what Hasbro has done in the last decade they either care about original cartoon or the IDW comics the marvel Comics are largely overlooked.

    I don’t know how one can stand buying the same mold 6+ times, but I do look forward to the future group pics from Seeker enthusiasts.

    Well some people do care seeing as Ive seen a bunch of comments with the only complaint being that they’re one single flat color in robot mode.

    Liking this a lot, if the price isn't too high, I might just get it. Haven't touched this mould yet as the seekers don't usually interest me, but this is a really nice set.

    Of course, I\'ll have to clean all the crud off of these, but this is the only way to get all 3 rainmakers, as close to as they appeared in the show, as possible.

    PotP Starscream & Elita-1 just share backpacks & a few skeletal pieces, so there's precedent for it.

    Cool, another rumor that turns out to be real. :)  I agree with whoever said that these kind of look like KO’s tho. I know it’s accurate, but I feel they could’ve benefitted from an extra layer of paint (for example: slightly darker shades of the same color on their chests. Just update them a little).

    Either way, good news for the Seeker collectors! ;)

    I guess if they gunna retool POTP Starscream into Slipstream, All they need to do is just retool Elita-1 with an new Chestplate and Head (Both robot and combiner.)
    Though i would prefer G2 Dreadwing out of POTP Starscream myself.

    I’m still laughing that they’ve actually made a deluxe Siege seeker figure. That just amazes me.
