    I guess so, frightening to consider the import demand for a henkai thundercracker.
    (no need to explain why.)

    But I'd like to see a creamsicle orange colored henkai sunstorm.
    yowza.

    http://www.tfu.info/2003/Destron/Sunstorm/sunstorm.htm

    a little off topic, but I found it interesting how similar sunstorm's bio on tfu.info is to the bio of wal mart's allspark exclusive divebomb. Problems containing core shielding and the distance his team mates keep from the character are the central themes.

    i think we'll get sunstorm in classics 2.0...and i hope japan doesnt do a TC, or if they do then he should be a super limited exclusive figure, just as he was in the states...

    I love how people say this. How is it any different then when Takara or Hasbro reissues a rare vintage item that I have a misb/mib oiginal of?

    when you bought said item, was it stated to be a limited exclusive? and i'm not completely up on my reissues, so i dont know what rare figures have been reissued...but to me, anything that is released as an exclusive shouldnt be resold later...and it irritates me to no end that NP ended up on the hasbro website, or in australian stores...if something is exclusive, it should remain that way...

    now, in 15 or 20 years, if they "reissue" classics and do a TC i dont think it'd bother me near as much...

    I really hope we get a Classics 2.0 Sunstorm. I have all the Classics Seekers so far and wouldnt mind a Ghost of Starscream either but as for rereleasing certain molds as long as I get them then I dont mind it so much. I am still up in the air with Henkei doing a Thundercracker but definately no Thrust or Dirge but there is always a chance I guess. But bring on Ghost of Starscream and Sunstorm.

    I would hope they would do something significantly different from the FP one if they did do TC. It would really be a kick in the nuts to people who spent an arm and a leg on the Botcon set if Taktom turns around and puts out an identical regular release.

    Well since none of the others were identical to the U.S. release, I highly doubt Thundercracker would be if they decide to release him.
    My guess would be that they'd use lighter blue, stripes that match Starscream's, and of course the chrome on the arm cannons.

    Yeah. Maybe a bit more pale blue, like the movie one. And some leg chrome.

    ^^^^IMO I think Thundercracker looks great the way he is Colored from 2007 Botcon. But I agree that if he were to be repainted that they should do it as you have described.

    black, clear, orange, movie deco, purple, green, pink Toshiba...whatever. Hopefully not some small batch limited repaints that cost more than $50 each though.

    glad i posted this i think they should do all the seekers lite blue tc, sunstorm thrust, and (dirge not just a ramjet repaint) but do them g1 like starscream.i,m shure they can be done different so the people who spent all that money on the botcon set will not feel ripped off cartoon thundercraker dirge with his own wings and thrust with larger tail fin,s and smaller wing intake,s all different from the botcon release,s its ether this or some knockoff company will do it with crappy quality.

    ^^^^I am impressed with your Thrust Custom and TC and Dirge. If I hadnt of bought the Botcon Box Set I would of gone with that route you took. Very nice looking set you have.

    I'd LOVE a SS's Ghost. If we'll get a Sunstorm, though, I'd love to find out sooner rather than later, I'm already tired of waiting with my spares because of not wanting to do one and then it get released for purchase.

    We usually don't hear much in the way of Japanese TF news at Botcon.
