    I wouldn't doubt it one bit.

    If the early reviews of MP-3's flaws being fixed for Skywarp pan out, I'll definitely bite on him and that Thundercracker as well.

    It's not the light blue of the show/Botcon exclusive/Titanium, but I like it.

    I prefer Thundercracker in a darker blue... If Hasbro MP SS goes on clearance around here, I'm picking up a second for Thundercracker...

    I hope that's what the picture on Skywarp's box means. I like the darker blue, too. Even if it is a blue that we're more used to seeing on Autobots.

    I really think that they just put it up there to show all the seekers. But I can really see them releasing them, the coneheads not so much.

    Dark blue is way better than pale blue. I hope this turns out true! Thanks for posting this Super megs. Thundercracker's personality is that of an oaf but his color scheme is easily one of the best of the seekers. Being that Hasbro said at Botcon that skywarp and cracker are not outside the realm of possibility in the states, and that he is a mere repaint, I would not be surprised if he came out either in japan, here, or even both. Maybe as a Target or TRU exclusive next time.

    Bah, that's fine. Nothing against the coneheads, but I don't think the world is clamoring for a $100 Masterpiece Dirge.

    But now, to have the original Seeker Trio all complete, and in MP form.... THAT will be a thing of beauty.

    Here's to hopin'.

    Thundercracker and Screamer were my fave. I'd pick him up for sure.
    The MP-3 is a sturdy, solid and overall well crafted figure. Haven't had any probs with my Screamer, whatsoever.

    This image, however, is an old one which was posted around the time we first saw photos of Skywarp. Old, but interesting news.

    I m saying the possibility of a Thundercracker is very high since Taktomy can squeeze out more money from that mold.....unless they decided to make it a Wonderfest Exclusive (like BT17 Black Convoy):(

    It's really just a repaint no reason why they wouldn't release Thundercracker to complete the set. Maybe they will add a new face mold like they did for Skwarp, but kinda doubt it.

    I could see Takara releasing the coneheads down the line. Based on the exsisting Seeker mold and retooled for each character. Thats pretty much what they did for Classics.

    Of course these cost a little more.

    +1 for dark blue.

    I see they're still color correcting the photos of MP-3 to look blue instead of green.

    I hope it's true, but if not, I can still pretend that MP 03 is Thundercracker.
