    Yeah, all the weird tattoos remind me of G2.

    So much wrong with this;

    The shade of blue is wrong and not even close to G1
    Can't unsee the short shorts, mini skirt, hot pants
    The Decepticon logos are upside down on the wings
    Those damn tatoos are everywhere, completely ruins it.

    After all that I'll still be buying it....I'm weak. I'll probably keep it sealed and sell it when the Takara toon accurate version comes out.

    I was looking forward to this, but the decals just turned me off. I'm still satisfied with MP-07.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a great alternative to the price of what MP-07's are going for if you didn't get a chance to pick up MP-07 at release prices. And this is cheaper than iGear's I believe. Hasbro was doing so well with TRU MP-10 release color redeco, quality, and price. What happened to TC??

    Nope. The F-15 "A" and "C" models were single-seat, with the "B" and "D" variants sporting two. Of course, there's the Strike Eagle which also has two seats.

    I'm pretty sure the MP seekers are modeled after the Strike Eagle, even if there's only one seat in the figure's cockpit.

    After having an Hasbro MP Starscream, and Rodimus break almost immediately after opening, I'm really worried about the QC on this one. Stress-marks right out of the box isn't exactly a good early sign.

    Between that tab on the arm and the hinge that attaches the wing-assemblies to the body, we'll see how many pictures of mangled Thundercrackers end up in this thread....

    I was seriously considering it but those decals are just downright silly. Maybe I'll get lucky and score an old mold Thundercracker to match my Starscream and Skywarp.

    Wow, I didn't know that it was the MP11 mold. Might have to go after one of these now.

    I'm not too partial to the tatoos, pics ussually don't do a figure justice for me. gotta see it in person. I don't mind the mp-11 mold too much. But i just really don't like the feet.... that said, I think it's nice. I don't feel $70 is fair. but TRU always does that..

    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFfffaaahk. I had decided to pass on this as I already have Lightning but I really do prefer the darker blue.
