    I was very disappointed when I saw the size of the upcoming Thunderwing toy.
    But then, I remembered the following drawing:

    Super mode clearly needs to be made, and we know Hasbro will not do it. Does anyone have anything similar to the bat-signal for Fansproject?

    I'm more than happy with what we got. Then again, I didn't really care if we got him at all.

    I... care absolutely zero for the character of Thunderwing anyway. And while there would be people who would want a Thunderwing add-on to bulk the figure up... There's a ton of us who still want a larger Galvatron.

    That would be really cool and I'd buy if it it were released but it's not something I can't live without.

    Would be sort of a waste of time for Fansproject to me personally. As cool as Thunderwing looks, that super-mode is pretty lame. I'd rather see them spend their time on something cooler.

    Should be happy that we're even getting a Thunderwing at all. In the TF world he's almost just as obscure as Straxus......

    Same here. I don't remember much demand for a Thunderwing so it's neat we got him at all.

    Count me in this group as well. I had to do a search to see who he even was and I grew up loving G1. I do admit not the comics though, since there was no place to buy them where I grew up in the middle of no-where-ville!

    Galvatron doesn't have a suit of armor, people just don't like his latest toy. How could armor possibly make the figure better? Make him less posable? Make his cannon and head way too small with regard to his body? Or is the idea just to cover the figure completely...in which case why bother with the original at all?

    Super Mode Thunderwing actually makes conceptual sense, because he's Thunderwing with a bulky armor shell. It doesn't make me swoon particularly but it's a neat idea that could result in a cool project.

    It also occurs to me that a Super Mode Thunderwing from FP is linked thematically with the Protector armor. Both Rodimus and Thunderwing were upgraded by the Matrix.

    (Granted, Super Mode and the Matrix never appeared in the same story, but that's no reason for you to get your rationality in my fanwank.)

    I could sort of see it. Attachment to the base toy would be tricky, but otherwise it's a pretty simple system. Assuming you're not expecting the legs to slide open like that as well. Probably the best way to approach it would be to make a complete second aircraft unit that can dock to the vehicle mode and transform with the toy, preferably without disassembly. As simple as this should be I don't see why that'd be a problem, though.

    The main thing I'm hitting against here is that since the robot legs can't expand, the proportions are gonna be all kinds of wacky.

    And Thunderwing wasn't so much "upgraded" by the Creation Matrix as he was "used by."

    STOP WITH THE RATIONALITY. The Matrix can use me all it wants if I get so powerful I can blast Unicron so hard he falls off of Cybertron. ;)

    No, see, Creation Matrix using Thunderwing's practically-dead body blasted Unicron. But the Matrix was evil at that point and so was entirely useless against Unicron. As evidenced by Unicron obliterating Thunderwing's body immediately thereafter.

    See, until IDW brought back Thunderwing and by default his pretender shell super mode, the comics only ever showed basically the figure we are getting. I am happy either way sooo. I would rather they release those awesome Colossus weapons in a nice affordable pack.
