    I think it was reported that TRU will indeed sell MP Thundercracker, based on the new seeker mold.

    If it's the MP11 mold TC, this would be awesome! I'll skip TTomy, then. TC before Prime is surprising.

    If it's the MP-11 mold? Awesome indeed.

    If not, no big, as he'll then go with Skywarp.

    I hope Skywarp doesn't get shortchanged this time round.

    You mean Thundercracker doesn't get shortchanged?

    The way I see it, this might be Hasbro experimenting with different pricepoints for Masterpiece figures. With Thundercracker being the cheaper one and Prime the more expensive premium one.

    After all, the Prime toyline has no expensive big-ticket items.

    1) I, and i'll guess at least a few others, don't want to see either of them shortchanged.

    2) If they're going to keep pace with Takara... the US Masterpiece line is going to have to expand.

    3) Again, i like your thinking.
