    This is my least favorite of Airwave's modes. It looks... just ok. It's not terrible, but without other ramps to connect to other figures, it's not much. DSC00747.JPG

    This mode, on the other hand, I like a cool aircraft launcher.

    Almost like a mini version of Metroplex's attack mode.

    His robot mode is a hoot. He's colorful and unique. His squashed head is one of a kind for sure.

    Toyarena added G2 Ramjet as in stock. Toydojo got him in earlier. We even have a local comics store carrying G2 Ramjet.

    My local seller happened to have Coneheads 2-pack... for 180$. o_O  Decisions decisions... Already grabbed Thrust from him and G2 Ramjet from another seller so maybe that'll be enough for me :p

    The Astro Squad was a fun, fun set. The individual robots are fun, but the combined shuttle mode is just great! And much like Sky Lynx, it's got the official Nasa logo on there. I'll never get tired of these guys. DSC00273.JPG DSC00275.JPG DSC00271.JPG DSC00272.JPG DSC00278.JPG DSC00264.JPG DSC00263.JPG

    Dang sorry the 2 became so hard* (pricey) to acquire. It is nice to have the trio I ended up cancelling my Sandstorm order as it was taking way to long. The three along with the other 3 seekers were enough for me of this mold. I also went seeker deep on the tetra jets and had to say when with those as well. Lol.

    So what form do you guys prefer your Seekers in?

    for me I’m a sucker for the classics so I prefer Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Thrust, Dirge, and Ramjet in Earth modes.

    on the other hand I prefer Hotlink, the Rainmakers, and if they ever get around to them Sunstorm and Bitstream in their Siege forms.

    Redwing is Siege
    Sandstorm is Earth

    however that still leaves Nacelle, the unreleased Blackout, Jungle Camo, and Cloud Camo. I’d have Nacelle and Blackout in the Siege molds and pair them with Redwing. Then I’d have Jungle and Cloud be Earth Coneheads and pair them with Sandstorm.

    nine Earth molds and nine Siege molds. A nice even split.

    I figure being female Slipstream would be a new slimmer mold that shares some parts/engineering not a straight repaint like the above would be.

    The Decepticon Battle Squad is even cooler than the Autobot's Astro Squad. The colors are great. The robot modes are both sturdy and stable.
    DSC00269.JPG

    They even work well as individual vehicles.

    But it's that combined canon transport mode that's the real star of the set.

    I wish we'd have gotten more micro master sets like these. They were so much fun.
