    It's a mass release figure (regardless of it being Generations or DotM), it ain't rare. It may not have yet hit its saturation/wide release, but it ain't rare.

    Ok, so you found him but did you buy him? If the answer is 'no' then you can't think he's that awesome.

    IMHO the saturation for Generations TC has pass. Retailers are getting ready for the movie tsunami that's about to hit.

    They may be in stock but it doesn't mean TC is available. 6 weeks ago in my area TC and Warpath was available and snagged up really fast. They were restocked with Skullgrin and Clifjumper overstocks. I have not seen either one since.

    Let's do the time warp agai.. oh wait...

    ON AN OTHER NOTE... I hope we're talking about Gen TC (though I doubt it) and I freaking want this guy. I started collecting after Classics Screamer and UM/SW came out, so I really want that mold lol.

    Why is everyone wondering what TC he's talking about? In his first sentence, he says DOTM TC.

    Since the OP said he found DOTM Laserbeak, Mudflap and Bee, I'm pretty sure he's talking about DOTM deluxe Thundercracker. Who I have, and who is awesome.

    I have Gen TC as well, who is also fantastic.

    EDIT: not sure if I saw the first post pre or post-edit, so my comment may or may not be relevant. :D

    Not really a movie collector but a Generations collector so the Generations Thundercracker is the one that I picked up. He was the last Seeker on my list of non-exclusive Seekers to complete the full set except for the Target exclusive Skywarp in my Seeker collection.

    Not sure how well he showed up in the rest of the US but I only saw one in stores with no sign of either Wheeljack or Warpath.

    Got to say though it was nice of Hasbro to release both a Generations and a movie Thundercracker at the same time so fans would have a choice on which one they wanted instead of only releasing one or the other. Now if they could just work him into Transformers Prime so I could start collecting Seekers all over again.

    As of a few years ago, I made it a point to get the 3 main seekers in any line I can get them in. So now, I'm sure they're going to sneak a store-exclusive Skywarp into the DOTM line.

    I'm glad I picked Gen TC up from BBTS, as I have yet to see him in stores around here (unless they came in and got snatched up).

    It does seem like their is some sort of rule at Hasbro that one of the three have to be a store exclusive. Even in a simple line like Robot Heroes I had to get a store exclusive just to have all three.

    Eh, they just can't make it easy on fans for something as simple as Starscream, Thundercracker and Skywarp all in the same style or sub-brand.
