Henkei Dirge and Thrust

Posted by:

First we get Skywarp and Thundercracker to complete the first set of Seekers, and now we get the rest of the Conehead Seekers. Ganbo-store.com has the first official images of the Henkei versions of Thrust and Dirge. These images reveal that these two figures are very different from their BotCon counterparts. Their wings are completely new molds but they aren't quite exactly what one would expect them to look like.

Dirge's wings are very G1-esque, but they appear to have strange blue and white stripes running down the wings. Thrust's wings are a different matter. His wings have white lightning bolt designs running across them, but the real brain-tickler is that the VTOL fans are located on his ankles in robot mode, which puts them under the jet mode's tail fins instead of on the wings.

But, fear not. For according to the translated version of Thrust's product page, it states in plain 'engrish' that the VTOL fans are "Removable for vertical ascent in the rotor also can be attached to the wing."

Also check out this (translated) blog with more images of these two.

Definitely going to get these two, and Thundercracker! I'll get some labels for them so they look a little more American.
