    With the upcoming releases of thrust and dirge in the generations line, does anyone see hasbro releasing thundercracker and skywarp in a future generations line? They were only released as henkei exclusives and skywarp was also in the ultra magnus 2-pack. HELP US OUT HASBRO! :D

    Probably not. They already were released years ago, though as you said, they were exclusives. They had US releases though.

    Maybe Thundercracker, doubt it on Skywarp.

    Only Skywarp got a U.S. release.

    I understand why lots of people are saying they doubt it, but my spider-sense says Hasbro will work on getting these two (and probably UM again as well - hey, there's money to be made!) out there for the public again.

    I'm not sure of the contractual wording between Hasbro and Target over the previous UM/Skywarp 2-pack. It may be that they can't release the same PACK again, but the individual figures within may be okay (I'm going by more intimate knowledge of the type of exclusive deals Hasbro has for Star Wars exclusives).

    Well it is awesome to see that they will be bringing the henkei remolds of Dirge and Thrust over now, 2 that were only previously available in a convention set. So I would bet somewhere down the line Thundercracker might make his way finally to retail.

    I can't believe I passed on the UM\SW double pack that was all over the bargain bins at Woolworths. How was I to know what Fansproject would do!!

    As it is I retrospecivley fitted my Classics collection out with Masterpiece TC\SW\SS as it was just as cheap as finding the exclusive classic molds and I think the seekers look good a little bigger than the autobot cars..

    Hasbro repainted Classics Starscream into a more toon accurate version with Universe 2.0 in 2008. It's not far-fetched to believe that they'll do the same with Skywarp in the Generations line. It'll probably mimic the color scheme of the American MP Skywarp much like 2.0 Starscream did with its MP counterpart. And a Thundercracker seems more likely with Thrust/Dirge added to the CHUG cast.

    I'd rather them do Sunstorm and Thundercracker before another Skywarp.

    A Sunstorm seems likely as well. I wouldn't be surprised if the mold was repainted into an Aerialbot (Skydive or Air Raid).

    I hear ya. I fitted animated starscream and animated skywarp into my chug collection because they were the cheapest representation of the g1 characters and I like the mold. So I'm hoping at the very least that hasbro pulls through with an animated thundercracker!

    I'd definitely prefer a figure that hasn't been done,(Sunstorm), over one that has been done already.....

    And if you are patient , and keep looking on ebay you can get TC or SW for a great price....

    hahhahahaha your funny, that set doesn't go below $50, and it get to $50 if you are extremely lucky

    thing is i am hoping skywarp is redone, i ain't one of those that chose to skip the pack because of white prime and then whined non-stop because of city commander, i am one of those that, because target is too far away, was unable to get ahold of the set

    Why not re-release Skywarp and Ramjet, that's what I'd want. Then release Thundercracker and Sunstorm.

    now i don't know about rereleasing ramjet, he was a flat out main release, he is way easier to obtain than skywarp, there is no cheaper option for those of us who missed out on that two-pack

    They wasted that mold with the Acid Storm release. Should have been Thundercracker then.
