    I took a look at the new Thundertron figure and noticed he had a new faction symbol. Based on the bio summary, it seems he may be looking to get revenge on cybetronians for ruining his home.

    Anyone have any additional information about this faction? Whats it called and who does it consist of?
    As for Thundertron, Who is he, what is he, and where is he from?

    And he is in some form related to Optimus Prime, I not sure but he is a late relative to the Dynasty Of Primes.(like Prime in ROTF).

    Thundertron is the captain of a crew of space pirates called The Star Seekers. They travel around in a ship called The Tidal Wave, searching for Cybertronians to murder because Captain Thundertron has a personal hatred towards anyone from Cybertron. TFWiki goes into further detail.

    No, he doesn't define himself as a Cybertronian anymore. This is how it works.

    Funny that, without the constraints of a TV budget, the toys are expanding more upon the lore than the show is. Kinda sucks because in a perfect world the show feeds the toys, but in this case instead the lore is feeding the toys and the show is keeping it very, very basic. Not sure I like that. Makes it cheaper for Hasbro I suppose, but I think in some ways the audience misses out on seeing characters like Dead End, Thundertron, and Rumble running around on the TV show. Not saying they'll never show up, but... based on the first half of Season 2... it ain't looking good.

    So if I dont define myself as a human does that mean im not human? He's still a cybertronian no matter his hatred.

    I assume he was born on one of the colonized planets.

    Same reason why the Junkions and Velocitronians are reffered to as such.

    Enough factions. We already have MECH and the third party angle is already being explored by rogues like Starscream. It's running the risk of muddling the plot needlessly. We still haven't fully developed the teams we have and you want to start dumping in more?

    Also the Wiki pretty much sums up my feelings on Thundertron and his ilk. The boring Bot/Con mix symbol, etc. Add in that "Thundertron" is a really, really crummy name.

    Not necessarily. Characters like Cybertron Override are Transformers, but not Cybertronian.

    It was from At World's End, when Barbosa was speaking to the Brethren Court.

    Absolutely. My point is, StarFighter was implying that he is not a Cybertronian, because he is a transformer, which... doesn't make much sense.

    :confused:
