Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Seeker was a term originally used in Hasbro's promotional materials to refer to the Decepticon Jets of the same mode. Only Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker were named during Season 1 of the animated series. The name Sunstorm was given retroactively by toy-distributor E-Hobby to the previously unnamed yellow/orange Seeker and Purple/Silver is Slipstream. This was later picked up by comics publisher Dreamwave Productions. Ramjet, Thrust, and Dirge (introduced in Season 2) essentially used the same mold as their Season 1 counterparts but with small modifications, and because of this, they are also known as the "Coneheads".
