New Starscream figure glimpsed at CybertronCon 2012 – Seeker and you shall find

March 11th, 2012 by Marc 1 Comment


As a kid (who am I kidding? As an adult too – ed) i loved collecting the seekers in Transformers – for anyone who doesn’t know that’s Skywarp, Starscream, Thundercracker, Thrust etc) and I love when new versions come out, although we rarely get full sets anymore.

However, this looks good. The guys at Seibertron have been at CybertronCon 2012 and got great images of  the new Generations Starscream (for the record, is that Skywarp in the main image too?). I love the look of these as it really harks back to the seekers we first saw on Cybertron but also pays homage to the ‘classic’ look too and looks like the War For Cybertron version too (and I can see a bit of the Bayformers there too).

Here’s what DevastaTTor for Seibertron had to say:
a huge crowd for the Hasbro/Takara Tomy Brand Development and Product Panel Discussion, Hasbro revealed the first Generations figure to be released as part of wave 1 in 2013: deluxe class Starscream.

Transformers Global Brand Director, Jerry Jiovin, also teased the crowed a little with the potential for the release of FOC Grimlock. When asked by a member of the crowd if we’d see him in the same wave, he sheepishly grinned and answered ” Stay tuned…”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
