    I was reading up on TFWIki, and it said that ANimated Thundercracker was made by Takara. (With a 'chromed metalic finish and purple Decepticon logos.)

    Is this true? Yes, I know TFWiki isn't a reliable source, but still.

    The one Takara made is Activators Thundercracker. Its not a Voyager. And TFWiki is pretty reliable.

    Wierd. It's under Voyager. Not Activator.

    They had a Takara voyager Thundercracker, but it didn't come out over here. I should know. I waited to avoid that $60 price tag and now I can't get one. :/

    I checked and that is weird it says that. I remember there being one and I cant find info on it being sold anywhere. And I do remember people complaining Takara didn't take the chance to make a Thundercraker repaint So I'm guessing that's a mistake on there page. Unless there was a special edition I forgot about.

    Never an animated Voyager. There were a couple test shots or pre-release figs (something to that affect) that a few boardies got their hands on, just like the Hasbro version of Blackout, but never a wide release by either Hasbro/Takara.

    Im sure the boardie with the testshot will chime in with his pic soon enough, cracks me up every time.

    Wish you wern't wrong, cause I would love to have one in my collection. Hopefully one of the two companies surprises us someday and brings it to market.

    Tfwiki is a VERY reliable source. IMDB and Wikipedia, however, are not.

    I know man. It's hard as hell to get 3 of the OG Seekers in the same line at the same time.
