    I dunno. Looks like a home repaint of Starscream to me.

    I'd like to say I doubt it (Isn't that Cyb TC's design anyways?) you never know.

    I'd say bogus though.

    Nah, no way.... just looks like a poorly painted Starscream. Thundercracker will almost certainly have more blue than that. I would also guess that he will have the more amber-colored cockpit glass that Skywarp does, and a unique deco.

    I would bet money on this being a homemade fake. :)

    Obvious custom job. The blue stripe on the jet mode as well as the red paint give it away - it's exactly the same on Starscream. A BotCon exclusive would look more Thundercracker-y (i.e. blue).

    That is clearly a simple repaint of Starscream. The Exclusive Thundercracker will actually look like Thundercracker.

    yikes, while an intersting take on Thundercracker.



    Thats not the Botcon version. Its basically starscream with metallic blue on highlights.



    does siebertron just report things willy-nilly?

    man, that's not only a kitbash, but its lazy as all hell. they only painted over SOME of the jet stripes, none of the jet body, didn't get the insides of the fists, didn't touch the guns hardly at all, the knees are the exact same as well. how the hell do you look at that and think, "lets front page this, this has to be news!" (not you Dr Grim). Hand painted prototypes always look a lot better than this. there's also no "not for sale" on there anywhere at all, or any defacings.

    Oddly enough I like the concept of the Seekers looking like their proper selves in robot mode and match in vehicle mode like a fighter squadron. Maybe that was just me talking myself into liking the figure when I thought it was official. After a second look it's an obvious fake... still a neat idea though.

    Please leave that decision to the staff.

    That said, this thread will now be moved to TFGD.
