Blogger aiex888 has posted a ton of new photos showing off the Phantomstrike Squadron set, which most notably features the Siege iteration of Skywarp, rounding out the classic seeker trio. This set, along with the "Firestormers" set which we now know as the Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce featuring G2 Sideswipe and Slamdance, currently do not have a revealed venue or timeframe for their release. Seeing one of these sets make it out to the hands of a fan for some photography might be a good sign that it won't be too long before it becomes generally available.
Along with Skywarp, the set includes three Battle Masters: Terror-Daxtyl, redeco of Pteraxadon, Fracas, redeco of Firedrive, and Shrute, redeco of Aimless. Shrute was previously a trademark-rename of Spinister's Targetmaster Hairsplitter, when the characters were used in a Transformers Collector's Club set. And of course Fracas is Scourge's Targetmaster, who has been notably unrepresented by either TakaraTomy or Hasbro up until now during the revival of Targetmasters as a play pattern.
Unfortunately, the inclusion of both in this set serves to most likely preclude the appearance of either in a standard retail assortment, and may very well signal that we shouldn't expect to see a Spinister update in Siege - at least not anytime soon.
