    Ooh nice.

    I have deposits in on new TT as I need Seekers to finish up and Maketoys are 'maybe coming again' (although I wasn't too impressed with them first time round and sold them) and the existing TT Seekers are old and meh....these Zeta ones could be on my radar!

    Don't know if this has been answered but are they the same height as their coneheads or closer to MP-11 height?

    The new MP is fuck ugly. Buying these.

    Its 95% the conehead mould, why would it be smaller?

    Zeta is a gluten for punishment. The last time they went up against an official release they got a cease and desist...Who thought going head to head witb takara seekers was a good idea. Also is their Predaking just officially dead now?

    You know, for it make sense in our collections? That said I dont dissagree thats more likely they are doing it in the conehead scale.
    Booh and all, because if it was properly scaled I would have six seekers to replace....

    My MP seekers are the the coneheads from ToyWorld/Zeta and the regular seekers (and sunstorm) from Maketoys.

    I don't think anyone or anything is beating the Maketoys seekers, not even the new MP, but the Zeta mold is quite good, especially if you like a more detailed toy/less toon styling and the height. Transformation is simple. Articulation is all there but nothing crazy. Not a big fan of how awkward the neck/head joints are, though

    Personally, I like having the Coneheads be somewhat different from the regular seekers, so Iblike that the Zeta molds are taller and more detailed than my smoother and shorter Maketoys seekers. Makes it easier to display (taller coneheads in back) and differentiates the "generations" of seekers

    With the Maketoys looking like being re-released and the new MP52 etc on the way, I'd love Zeta to pull it out of left field by making these either the Rain makers, or the Welcoming committee

    Loving the look, but the question is the price, although under Zeta does give me hope for affordable Seekers to troop build!

    These just have no appeal at this point. Do something no one else is doing, that is where there is money to be made.

    Those look good.  Much better than the official MP releases.  No wonder Hasbro/ TT is scared enough to try CCing them.

    They did. Get a C&D, then release it under another label.

    Despite the shows and the promotion of the flexible, agile and of course show accurate the latest Takara-Tomy`s seekers, ZT continues to persistently create its own seeker, which by the way are larger than the official one.

    100% getting these if the end result is on par or better than the coneheads. Finally, some mp G1 style seekers that aren't bland and/or goofy looking.

    I have all three of their Coneheads and even though they don't really have any good spot in my collection I still love them.

    But looking at these, I kind of feel like Starscream DOES have a spot... THIS is coronation starscream: bigger, more detailed, possibly augmented to reflect his new status as leader. I didn't even want one of the regular Seekers until this occurred to me and now I'm DEFINITELY getting Starscream. The other ones... ehh, I don't need 'em, just like I only got the OSKO MP Starscream but not the others. This is a BIG mold and with its wing design takes up even more space than the Coneheads, so I really do just want one.

    Lmao. That actually had me laughing.

    How does the scale compare to the TT seekers? Maketoys is the same as TT, right?
    What didn't you like about them?

    I really need a starscream or two and have sooooo many choices now, if maketoys actually do a re-release.
