    I have seen a big gap i my collection, voyager seekers. I don't like the new potp one and is seeing if any third party companies have made one or are making one.

    The only ones i can think of at the moment are the iGear Voyager Raptor seekers. Nothing G1 style comes to mind.

    iGear raptors which look awesome with the M31 and Dr.K heads and guns, if you can somehow (still) acquire them.

    The original heads aren't so good. Very cartoony/animated.

    In my minds eye they will always be in those bodies (the raptors).

    Better than any dinky deluxe sized ones released thus far, or crappy too large-retools of Jetfire.

    Like everyone else has said the iGear raptors. I like them stock though.

    If you are a customizer the Cyber Battalion Starscream mold is a great base for voyager seekers.

    The Planet X seekers are voyager sized cybertonian alt mode seekers.

    I believe a KO company is planning on making one of the 3rd party seeker molds in a voyager size class, but it hasn't been shown even as a prototype yet.

    There's a proper voyager starscream coming in the next line of generations.

    But yea, Raptors!

    HasTak also did Cyber Battalion and Cloud Starscream, which are Voyager sized.

    Last time Hasbro did 3 Voyager Seekers was Armada!

    It's completely insane that with all the 3p companies out there, nobody's seen fit to make a voyager scale F-15C or F-22 since iGear.

    Like... what the hell?

    I know right? TFC could have made a killing if they repainted their F-15 Eagle from the Uranus set and sold them separately.

    ^ Indeed. They repainted Herc into SG, which is not nearly as popular... I'm surprised they never repainted retooled the various Jetformers they've made thus far into potential Seekers. (Or the TFC Blades into Deathcobra for the Leokaiser team.)

    Yeah, I probably would've bought a set if they did this. Someone even did a custom and it looks decent.

    Raptors were absolutely horrendously ugly, still the worst looking seeker mold to ever exist for all time.

    Personally, I would take a very very different approach to how a voyager seeker figure would be handled to make it look as un-g1 as possible for starters. But give them the g1 colors anyway with some slight hue shifts and plenty of additional details.

    Yeah, this. I want a voyager seeker that updates the G1 design with more modern design sensibilities that actually takes some chances and does something unique. My favorite updates are the ones that make an old design better, like what Hasbro did with their T30 Springer and TR Quake, what MMC is doing with their Reformated line, or even what Maketoys is doing with their Cross Dimensions line. This is one of the reasons I miss the A/E/C era, every year the characters got a new look, not the same design done slightly different. There is the upcoming POP voyager Starscream, but it...doesn't look great, but I'm hoping more pictures will change that.

    I got tired of waiting for a good voyager set of seekers and coneheads so I bought these and the coneheads from Rumble 619

    I'm going through the same thang as Omnondippy! Been using movie bayverse voyagers as stand ins but gahhh need sumpn else! I do have Igear Skywind but man sumpn just feels lil off bout it. Really thinkin' bout PX Mors and all his kin but saw a comparison pic recently showing them to be lil shorter than Igear. Hmmm. Wanted to go Masterpiece all in but after a really bad WM Hasblow Skywarp years ago I'm really unsure bout trying another! I just gave that thing away to some kid I know as it was floppy and little bits continuously poppin' off! Ugh! Somebody fukn bring it!
