    Very nice. Not sure why he's screaming though. Maybe all the sonic booming has given him a headache..?

    :lol  Looks like he's scared.

    I wish they had given him slightly different paint apps than Skywarp (as in all the small details).

    As much as I love the character, MP Thundercracker is a bit of a let down for me because it looks so bland in jet mode, but realistic. I'm still not quite sure which is better. But the white does help a lot. However, under further investigation, I have found the robot mode rocks.

    I hope Hasbro makes their own hopefully....and at another place better at handing out exclusives to avoid the diasaster of MP SS.

    So I and others will never see one in stores?


    No thanks.

    Now if it were targit, or toys r us, I might see one with a drastically marked up price. But chances are I'd see it in the store, unlike last time at Mal-Wart.

    I was trying to say that Hasbro should have doled MP SS to another store. I never saw one either at Wal-Mart, but then again never had the cash for it. Looks like I need to rephrase that...sorry. Didn't Hasbro say they considered MP TC and SW for 2009 Universe?

    I like the smirk better, but the new sculpt adds a lot of character.

    It looks like the very same face that SW has.

    So both TC and SW have the urge to take painful shits? Good thing there's two faces, the other one will never be seeing the light of day.

    Yes, good to have a new face, and as for the plainness hopefully TC comes with a label set as Skywarp did.

    Looked better in earlier pics IMHO. Blue doesn't look metallic, nor dark enough. And the trillion warning labels etc is just too much "white" on the blue. (Only Japan puts THAT many labels on their planes---you can tell Japanese F-4's and F-15's just by how many little markings are painted all over on every single panel/joint/hinge) At least the nosecone's black though, but not his v.stabs.

    I'll hope (but not expect) a US release that's more G1-toy-colored.

    Shade of blue is a bit off, for my liking. Also, what is up with the creepy faces on these seekers? Or am I the only one that thinks that? :confused2
