    Movie Ironhide is a pretty safe assumption, I think.

    Short answer? Probably VW Bee.

    I'd think so too, judging on price. However, the Hasbro official description of MPM6 says available at most major retailers or something like that, which sounds like they lost their exclusivity over the line. Maybe they'll get VW Bee as an exclusive or something instead.

    I'm still hoping a Masterpiece Hauler repaint shows up somewhere at some point.

    I'm gonna laugh if an MPM VW Bee is just MP Bee with a new head.

    Could you PM me on how you find placeholder images in CSIS? I'm pretty mediocre at it other than searching up by item number/manually digging via CSIS>Item inquiry.

    My store literally just started stocking wave 2 deluxe and voyager movie figures a week before Christmas.

    Either could be true. The item description under a certain number can change over time. I see it happen all the time.

    My store just received a fresh case of MPM Optimus and G1 MP Bumblebee. In our inventory system, MPM Bumblebee is marked as X. Never received a single one.

    Could you also PM me on how to check for those dates within CSIS>item inquiry? Or am I overlooking something obvious? loi

    Thundercracker!? At that price, it seems like it may be a PotP Voyager repaint,but then why not have it lumped in with those listings? It's not expensive enough to be a set with a Prime Master. It would be awesome if it was a new version for TBM like the 07 Voyager, which had a crap mold but radical head sculpt and paint scheme, but it's probably just a codename or the universally awaited CW Leader reissue.

    Where’s this speculation about Nitro Zeus being painted up as Thundercracker coming from? Sounds like a ridiculous idea to me. If they’re gonna reuse that mold make him Thunderwing or something.

    That's a theory? I'd love a repaint of the Nitro Zeus figure, but that seems very strange. Eh, Hasbro's done weirder.

    couple pages back, Nitro's silhouette is being used as a placeholder image for Thundercracker

    I'd assume it would be a mistake, but with TRU's recent hardship and the impending announcement of store closings in the states, I wouldn't be surprised if they did lose the exclusivity.

    I hope Thundercracker uses the POTP mold. We’ve finally got a voyager seeker mold, don’t blow it Hasbro.

    Well im very interested in thundercracker and the optimus/starscream two pack

    Rampant speculation aside I think nitro zues with the ghost starscream titan master head would make a sweet thundercracker. Here's hoping his tm is named buster

    The optimus starscream listing is actually for some sort of racing set not actual figures unfortunately.

    The Thundercracker being the Nitro mold also isn't just wild speculation though, considering there is a placeholder image in the TRU system that shows a silhouette of the Nitro mold.

    Althoug those placeholder images do sometimes end up not correlating with the final product. For example the Titan Masters listing used an image of the small static pose blind bag figures from a few years back.

    It just doesn’t make a lot of sense for a new Thundercracker to come out right as we get a new Starscream mold and not use it. I mean I would but and like a Thundercracker repaint of Nitro, but I’d much rather have him be from the mold he was designed to be.

    Unless the intent is to change the individual seekers designs(which Generations as G1 does not), I’ve never understood the point of making one of the three and not making the other two. But, we’ve gotten 3 complete sets of Seekes in Generations, so the trend should continue hopefully.

    If it's movieverse related, then hopefully TC is the new Starscream Voyager mold (with a head to resemble his 07 Voyager movie release). But Nitro Zeus's mold wouldn't be too bad either.
