    I can't answer the first TFs question either. I started getting TFs when I was a young kid; I think 7, perhaps younger, & mostly for Christmases & Birthdays (& sometimes if I asked). I do remember getting Air Raid & Slingshot early on... Took a long time before I knew who they were, though. Didn't get a whole set of Aerialbots until I got a G1 KO Set in '07 or '08 (I only bought 2/3s of the Energon ones, as Superion Maximus didn't look good enough to warrant breaking my no repaints rule).

    My thoughts on the Seekers as non-redecoes...

    I think it makes perfect sense for the Seekers to be recolors/retools of Starscream, especially with the kind of ego he has. He likes to fly around with jets that share his shape. Heck, I hope that if/when Starscream returns in season 2 of Prime, he's accompanied by Thundercracker and Skywarp who have the same character model. The coolest thing about them is that regardless of how Starscream is designed, the TC/Skywarp redecoes make the design look 90% more awesome. They even made the move Starsceam mold look good.

    I like how each of the Hearts of Steel seekers are slightly different (especially Skywarp) it works in that case as it's suggestive of the experimentation of the early days of flight.

    I hope that the Mastermind Collectables ones are not a straight copy of Starscream (especially Skywarp) I'd like it if each one was a bit different or at least if they did repaint Thundercracker out of Starscream they do add bits to make Skywarp distinct like the comic design is.

    If you think about it there is actually some precedence for them to have some design drift not only Armada Skywarp & Cybertron Thundercracker but also Universe 1.0 Skywarp. and War Within Skywarp (comic version) - even more so if you think of unreleased items like The Skywarp/Megatron triple changer too.

    That said I would rather have liked to see Cybertron/Galaxy Force Starscream's toy made as the other characters if only as faux Cybertron modes - to match the Legends toys they did.

    Actually I like the Seekers the way they are same body type, but different paint schemes and personalities that tell them apart is why I collected the Classics mold. But man SearchmanDS's question about your favorite TFs from every line...holy crap that was a doozy, but interesting. And thanks Vangelus about Shocker Toys I dig Shadowhawk and its variant, but I like to get Zen, the Intergalatic Ninja, that dude is badass.

    This podcast made me want a mcgriddle.

    And usually I prefer having the Seekers pretty much the same design. But I want them to have different designs in Prime to separate them from Starscream more and to have different toys.

    Funny about those lines where you can't remember the first one you get, like forgetting what you had for lunch an hour later because it bored you :lol

    Or am I :lol ? But in all seriousness, I don't think a favorite Transformer by line question would be any good. I know Vangelus has mentioned a few times his reluctance to say a Transformer is the best of the year because he can't objectively define best, or something like that. So yeah, I'm not springing that question on them for similar reasons.

    Good idea. Heck one time, I asked them a question on if Cybertron had a pro wrestling organization and asked to go crazy on their favorite characters and what themes would they use as entrances...some very interesting answers.
