    Hi guys,
    Managed to finish up a project I have been workin on...Movie Thundercracker.
    I added arms to him as well as new weapons and paint. Also used all the extra parts from his robot mode and made a "powered up" version of his vehicle mode.
    The extra parts can also be moved around for lots of different looks.
    Thanks for checkin it out!
    Love the mold, just hated those big ole cannon mitts he had!

    Very nicely done. Nice paint work also. Love those arms, it looks like they came from ROTF Ravage (Am I right?).

    Damn nice choice for arm pieces, giving neo shifters a run for the money. I cant wait for Leader Screamer to come out so I can finally have the movie seekers to scale with the rest of the line, Thundercracker was bad ass in the ROS comics. Nice work man!

    Yeah the Ravage arms worked well and were easy to attach to the shoulders of TC.
