    Which is a better figure, MP Magnus or MP Thundercracker? I am thinking of buying one, but don't know which. Who do you think is better?

    I already have Skywarp, King Grimlock, and Black Convoy.

    I'd personally pursue a complete set of Seekers if I were you...
    They look awesome displayed together.

    i concur, go for Thundercracker. For some reason I'd rather have a repaint of the SS mold than the OP one. Maybe its cause Magnus is so rarely seen in that form and it seems like such a money grabbing ploy.

    I would would go for Magnus. The MP Prime mold is the best transformer mold ever made in my opinion. Even if you have MP Prime the two look great together. MP Thundercracker is my least favorite of the seekers. The seekers mold is more fragile than the Magnus/Prime mold. If you already have MP Starscream and Skywarp though I can certainly see the appeal of completing the seekers trio.

    I should mention that I dont plan on opening them, I'm mostly a MISB collector. I also don't have SS.

    If you're a MISB collector, I'd wait for the Hasro version where you can see through the plastics. In this case, I'd purchase a MP-Starscream for now.

    Tough decision as both are really great figures. While the Optimus Prime mold is very well done and chock full to die-cast goodness, I'm going to have to agree with most of the posters and recommend Thundercracker. If there was a transforming trailer that became armor for Ultra Magnus, then I'd recommend him.

    Well if you're just going to keep them in boxes I guess you could hardly care if the figures are good. I'd get Magnus because you're a MISB collector since I don't really see him getting a US release

    I would probably go for T-Cracker then. But if you ever plan on opening him, I wouldn't get Thundercracker. The reversed "Banana-tits" thrusters on his chest are really annoying when displayed with the other seekers. I didn't think they would be until I finally got him. I hear that the new run of Magnus has some assembly problems too though.

    Thanks for all the feedback :)  It was a hard choice, but I decided to go with Magus and pick up Alternity Megatron while I was at it. Next paycheck will bring Thundercracker and Alt Super Black Convoy ^^

    Okay, one more question, MP-04 Perfect Convoy or Thundercracker?

    Ultra Magnus just doesn't cut the mustard without his armour for me. Go with Thundercracker.

    For your second question, go for MP-04. That Prime with the trailer rocks!
