    They’re literally all the same mold. Because of the wings two are higher in the box. I didn’t think that needed to be pointed out since the back of the box literally shows them all being the same

    They'll necessarily be in different sizes now that Hasbro has committed to a unified scale. The Throttlebots including a redone Chase might all come at once.

    I guess we really don’t need Botcon exclusives given how obscure they’re doing repaints these days.

    Yeah, I'm getting this set. The lads. The boys. The trio.

    Also that Seeker picture above is woefully incomplete. Doesn't have Slaughterhouse, doesn't have that nice black and brown Ramjet who's near the top of the Wiki page, doesn't have Nacelle's later wings, and I'm like 50% sure Wheezing Arrow is a conehead with Starscream wings, and the one it has there is just a random from one of the many episodes with randoms

    How was Roadburn a disappointment? I thought he was done well.

    It’s not aiming to be complete, these are the ones I care about. Anything afterwards needs to have a very interesting color scheme or mold to interest me into buying them.

    Yeah that makes way more sense.
    Oh well I was just thinking Hasbro might be disappointed with certain decisions like making a Chase that wasn’t as accurate.

    Seekers are the TF Flavor of Stormtroopers. I appreciate the ability to army build and still have an identity for each.

    Now....wheres the coneheads and how will they be tweaked?

    Yeah, not getting you at all.

    Chase was a red car that turned into a robot with the front of the car as the feet and the roof as a chest. Barring the motor gimmick how much more accurate could you be? The head? I can't remember if the toon head was remotely the same as the toy head or not.

    The head was based on Freeway, actually.

    Same here! Didn't plan on getting any of the Siege seekers, but man, I want these rainmakers!
    They'll go on a shelf with Shockwave and Reflector, waiting for a shipment of energon cubes from Megatron.

    Now I'm tempted to get the original trio as well...

    Glowstick seekers, I love it. Good thing the mold is sturdy, because my kids will want to play with them all the time.

    If they did a 3pk of the original Seekers and maybe the Coneheads that would be cool.
