I think i read it wrong, sorry dude. I thought it meant there was only one g1 style universe ss that year. But yes, I realsie that now. Thanks for clearing it up. Dirge is pretty good and the most recent, so he's right up the top. I might actually get him adn take a little time to decide on the other. Anyone here selling Generations Dirge for less than RRP? ($30 or so) So anyway, thanks people, but still deciding.

You may have meant to say a "different redeco of that mould", but your actual wording was "a different mould," so I can understand how Sky Shadow came to the conclusion that you may have meant Hasbro's Masterpiece Starscream.
It is a different mould to the initial batch. Different number of vents, plus a few 'improvements' over the first, so it is technically a different mold.

That would make it a remould rather than an entirely different mould.
Reference (TFwiki calls it a "redeco" but does say that the mould was modified)

Which does nothing to rebut my point. In fact, you've just posted information that indeed verifies my statement.

You stated 'different mold', to invalidate the OP's earlier statement, when what you've just posted simply verifies that yes, it is indeed a different mold. It is indeed a different mold, due to the changes made to the actual physical mold.

Redeco is also used in the same way as repaint, and doesn't constitute mold changes at all.

I suggest you read up on this, so you can provide correct information in the future.

Just when we thought we had enough Seekers, there's now Star Seekers - which I'm going to assume are Seekers who fly in outer space (because otherwise Star Seekers sound like a subgroup of Rainbow Brite or My Little Pony).

(Also I should get around to reading Exiles).

Ok guys, just to point it out, i know its not a different mold, ok?! I'm not saying it is. That post was a while ago. I just realised it after i started the thread.

A new group of "pirates" who are their own faction (not Autobots, not Decepticons) with only one toy so far, Thundertron, who've we've just seen pictures of.

So far there's no other connection to the other use of the word "seeker" and sorry for any confusion.
