I literally squealed when I opened this thread. This looks great.
There's a stupid part of me that wants an alternate head that splits in half from his encounter with Sunder. The figure looks great though! Didn't expect this to be a remold of Kultur.
Dang that bot mode peeks my interest, not sure how i feel about the alt mode though. Also i remember his shoulder pads being the same colour turquoise as his forearms...but maybe I'm not remembering correctly.
Pity there is nothing more about their Galvatron.
Thunderclash would not have been my first guess as a potential remold candidate from Kultur, but my god it's beautiful. Gimme now.
Interesting remold, but alt modes doesn't look at all like MTMTE Thunderclash.
Not a remould I was expecting. (I was thinking he might work as an IDW Galvatron.)
Although I like the characterisation of Thunderclash in IDW, I don't care much for his design. But then the old G1 design has always interested me (since I considered buying him at the time, but didn't because he was too small for me at the time).
So not sure where I stand with this one.
While awesome, I prefer an Earth/G1-based alt-mode for two reasons; the longtime interest to have an updated take on said version (I always liked his G1 design. A non-OP truck leader-figure, dat trailer and all those missiles) and not to resemble Tarn mold-wise.
I sympathize with you guys as I too loved G1 Thunder (big part of why I was so happy to get to work on this guy), one of my absolute favorite toys as a kid and I said to one of our designers ages ago if we ever do magnus he'd be perfect to retool in to a new version of a more g1 inspired thunder. But we ended up going with the far more IDW design instead since byrin was able to turn kultur in to something much closer to that.
And people do keep asking for and expecting MMC to specifically cover or at least reference IDW above all else when it comes to characters who date back to g1 or g2 originally so I would generally expect designs to follow that path more often. Especially if it means the design can be pulled off at lower cost with less time investment such as is the case with this version of this guy compared to a much more ambitious and costly production that would be recreating and evolving the g1 toy. Just how it goes sometimes.
Phew! That pleases me.
Now, who's gonna make Sunder???
And did he mention he got to work on this guy?
Holy moley, I didn't see this coming.
The question now is whether @Paik4Life will get a chance at a preview video (for this, Bulkhead, etc.) either tonight or tomorrow after the con.
Neat. I may bite on this.
The Action Master design that didn't transform? (Not judging, because we all like what we like, just curious if you'd genuinely buy a non-transforming 3P Thunderclash.)
I would think they are referring to this one.
Although I do have a G1 actionmaster (Blaster, because I really wanted a Blaster at that time and never saw him until the Action Master was released), no, I don't care for non transforming Transformers.
But then, G1 Thunderclash (more correctly, Thunder Clash) wasn't an Action Master. He was released in Europe at the tail end of G1, most commonly referred to as a Turbomaster and some countries as a Cannon Master (which makes more sense IMO considering he has two huge cannons that can fire a missile each plus a gimmick to launch projectiles and a quick reload system), he was as pointed out by @Recon734, a fully transformable figure: cab became a robot and trailer a battle station.
(The figure was released in the USA during Machine Wars as Optimus Prime.)
Ah, got it. I don't think he ever hit my corner of the US West Coast. I've thought for years that the first transforming T-Clash was that Unicron trilogy repaint.
mmc has really impressed me with the mtmte line cant wait to see ultra and delta magnus
