    The Snow Seekers were part of Cyclonus's Armada. During the battle on junkion, where Galvatron killed Ultra Magnus, A number of decepticons fell. One of Cyclonus's Personal guard was wounded, and left by the decepticons to fend for himself on the planet of junk.
    Hiding in the shadows..and hunted by the junkions at all times, this being became stricken with hate for those who left him behind. His rage grows exponentially every cycle. Cornered by the junkions he lashes out...and only a bashed, and magled pile of Junkion warriors parts remain. Thinking he has been cast out of the Armada, and the decepticon cause, He assumes the name of OVERCAST...and enacts plans to repair himself, and build a new army. Patching himself up as best he can with his new found parts, He leads a brutal, and bloody one robot assault on the Junkion village that assisted the autobots in the battle with Unicron. Not a single Junkion survived. He had found fallen sweeps, and members of the Armada being displayed proudly as trophies by the Junkions.
    Out of the parts of Junkions, fallen Sweeps, and Armada Chassis left from the previous battles, He takes the best chassis,and parts, and retreats in a junkion ship to a frozen moon far from cybertronians.
    Overcast Learns to adapt in the new frigid, but solitary environment. He gathers his parts, and rebuilds two new warriors. Grateful to Overcast, the new warriors Pledge their unwavering allegiance to Overcast...
    Having been built, resparked, and surviving in such a hostile place, the 3 become one with the frozen. Their sparks grow frigid, and previous abilities have evolved into elemental powers of the frost.
    Overcast Demands space faring chassis for his troops, and the SNOW SEEKERS are built for speed, and trans galactic capabilities. Overcast wants to enact revenge on any cybertronian, especially Galvatron. Able to fight on a planet's surface, or in Zero G Vaccum with no loss of abilities.
    In Robot mode the Snow seekers are a nearly unstoppable force. Harnessing water molecules in atmospheres, or using internal supplies, They use the power of ice and the frozen moon they came from as weapons.
    When Overcast leads his warriors to earth to get his revenge on Galvatron, He learns of Galvatrons fate from Megatron.
    Megatron makes a deal with Overcast, Promising him complete rule and ownership of of the frigid planet, Neptune, after they help him rid the autobots out of this resource filled solar system. When Megatron offers more troops to fashion into his own after he proves himself, Overcast accepts.
    Megatron charges Overcast with freezing the planet earth. With their frozen elemental abilities they are attempting to make earth so cold, all autobots will be slowed down, for an easy all out autobot purge by the Decepticons on earth.
    Will the SNOW SEEKERS be able to freeze the entire planet? Will human kind be wiped out? The Autobots are aware of the plan.... If the planet warms up this spring, we will know the SNOW SEEKERS were defeated..

    OVERCAST
    A former member of Cyclonus's Armada, he was left for dead on Junkion...Fueled by rage and fury, he is a Master swordsman, and a feared Berserker warrior. Wielding 2 Ice Sabers, They produce shafts of Absolute Zero swords, that can cause targets molecular structures to freeze on the atomic level...appearing to "cut" through any known susbtance besides heat and laser fire.

    BLIZZWING
    Assembled from scraps of Sweeps and Junkions, Blizzwing is an enigma. Speaking only when communication is absolutely necessary...the most maneuverable of the SNOW SEEKERS. Carries Flash Freeze missiles that can engulf a radius of 1000 meters in -200dg, or explode into razor sharp Ice flak. Missiles regenerate once every minute for 30 minutes, or until his water supply is exhausted. Blizzwing cares not for himself. eternally gratful to Overcast for his second chance, he will go to any length to please his master.

    SNO STORM
    Sno Storm is an obnoxious brute. A skilled warrior, and braggart. His love of death and destruction is matched only by his wit, and grizzly sense of humor. Getting Pleasure from enemies pain, he has been know to get distracted at cow pastures stepping on cattle just because they make a GREAT sound when you step on them this certain way.... Totally loyal to Overcast, Sno storm is a force to be respected. In robot mode, he is an Expert with his tridet, and can fire Ice blast from the tip out to 2000 meters causing frost and impact damage. He can transform his hands into his jet nozzles, and project ice out to 250 meters, instantly freezing and coating anything in his path with thick ice.

    A Project Prolly 3 years in the making..lol...
    The three were given to me by Plowking. He gets full credit for the head choices, and the hands on Cyclonus. I did the paint work. 4 different blues were used and a gloss white. I tried to give each mold a unique paint scheme so they would alll three look different, yet alike. I took some glue, and coated certain areas and leading edges, and covered them with 3 different sizes of hobby snow glitter. Then covered them with a gloss coat so you dont look like you just got back from the strip club if you touch them. The snow still sparkles. My camera dont catch it well, but they sparkle like they are covered in diamonds. it turned out very neat in hand. Fully transformable. Waited til my son was in bed and used his Flagg as a photoset.

    Thanks for checking them out!

    Those are really, really cool (no pun intended).
    Just the back-stories alone are fun, but add the customs in and you have a pure win here!!

    Love the head choices. Makes them look just different enough from the originals. Question though does ice picks head fit inside tentative when transforming?

    so, you have the snow seekers, what about making autobot snow scouts?
