    Okay, so from what I've found, the Star Seekers (Thundertron's crew from Exiles) consist of a bunch of reused names (and obviously the one new guy), and ever since picking Thundertron up, I've considered building him a proper crew (hopefully, we'll get some reprolabels for the Star Seeker insignia).

    Now, I haven't read the book myself, and TFWiki offers no descriptions of the characters on the ship, so I don't know that any of the crewmen have a specific design. I know that, at Botcon, they previewed the Star Seekers. Did they offer any specifics on which designs they were based on?

    As it stands, I'm looking at it like this:

    Axer (based on HFTD Axor)
    Cannonball (based on Cybertron Cannonball)
    Sandstorm (based on either the G1 character or the DOTM Human Alliance version?)
    Brimstone (based on either the Cybertron or the HFTD version?)

    So, my question is twofold:
    1 - Which versions of Sandstorm and Brimstone?
    2 - Should I just use Cannonball, or attempt a custom Cannonball using a PRID Voyager Bulkhead as a base?

    Hasbro said Cybertron Cannonball and Brimstone were the real dudes, I personally think HFTD Axor is a fine choice (Not that he's a real-real member anywho), Sandstorm, dunno, maybe that's who the GDO guy can be ;)

    I'm currently using HftD Brimstone, but Cybertron would be more accurate (I recall him having beast kibble). I don't believe they ever revealed Sandstorm at BotCon '11.

    Brimstone is based on the Cybertron version.

    Damn. Was hoping it would be creepy, skeletal HFTD Brimstone... mostly because I already own it. :lol 

    Also, figured DOTM Sandstorm would be closer, aesthetically, than GDO Sandstorm.

    i'd use cybertron brimstone since it fits the theme of beast modes, but i'd like to see some pictures of the ones mentioned earlier.

    Doesn't the tfw2005 photo spread on Thundertron have their own makeshift Star Seekers?

    That's awesome. I have a feeling if they appear they will all be beast modes, but this is a great crew.
