    I can't wait to get him. Although the lack of a thigh swivel sucks.

    Can't wait to pick up this little guy! Considering his badassness, I do wish he was a little bigger, nothing major though.

    Uh, drone? Doesn't the drone on the front come off?

    The front of the nose of the jet is supposed to be a drone that comes off.

    Boring transformation as we pretty much all suspected... Still can't get into this toy. Yet.

    I don't think it's that boring of a transformation. Simple...yes. But that doesn't mean boring. I think it's personal preference.

    Very cool

    Can you take a pic with him and Bludgeon?

    Really wish Thunderwing were voyager sized.

    i am really getting tired of people bashing a toy for having a simplistic transformation, i actually enjoy a figure more when i can transform it on the fly in a matter of moments

    it you want something difficult, go get a rubix cube, otherwise just shut up

    then there are those when a toy is too difficult they bash it......i think the only way to make everyone happy is to remove transformation all together

    Oh man, he looks so awesome next to Bludgeon... if not a little short, but whatever. I don't mind the simplistic transformation at all, in fact I kinda prefer it. Want this guy badly.

    someone asked me if the drone can be used as some kind of weapon. While i wasn't able to find an attachment point for that, (this is honestly why i hate getting these figures BEFORE peaugh...missing stuff sucks and you have to try and update everyone lol) i was able to find that the missile pods attach to form one huge gun..

    as you can see...there are two pegs and holes on each missile pod

    Attaching them gives you one massive gun, capable of being held in both hands for a fairly impressive weapon.

    any chance of a shot of him holding a matrix above his head? I know that's what's going to happen to mine from the matrix from the Cyclonus Rodimus pack.

    Actually, yeah. Do you have a Cybertron Prime Matrix and/or Big Convoy Matrix? I'd like to get an idea of Thunderwing with both accessories.

    Thats a heck of a BFG. In a weird way it kinda reminds me of what Classics Jetfire and Tankor (Octane)'s weapons did. That one blaster overlapping the other. I find it odd, but still cool nonetheless.
