Default Asian Classics Seeker 6-pack?

From the HK fansite that revealed the Asian exclusive United Ultra Magnus, they have posted up artwork of the six classic Gen1 seekers, suggesting that there could be a six-pack in the pipeline... or separately as a special mini-series from Hasbro HK.

It will be a good opportunity for those new to Classics or the hobby, to get this great mould in all it's Gen1 forms - and if it is done as a nice boxset, it could be a nice display piece for those who already have them.

Wow... Like the pace and direction Hasbro HK is going with all these re-releases. Here's hoping the price is a little more down to earth to fuel demand and interest from new and younger collectors - it'll all be good for the franchise in another 10 years time when those younger collectors gain more disposable income

How many kids these days get to play with their own Starscream like this promising young lad?

I only need an official Skywarp to replace my KO stand-in...

Hasbro Hong Kong seems to get it and this would work for newer collectors.

I love boxset figures so this is something I will buy. However I'm a bit worried about the price, the sixshot and energon bruticus reissues are pretty over priced and this will probably follow suit.

Looks Hong Kong to me but the lines are being blurred.

I really hope they gave whoever designed that mold a raise for being about to use it 2958147 times.

And then fired him because it's a rubbish figure.

Someone here said about a year ago that we were going to get a separate carded release... I wonder what ever happened to that.
