    Truly, this Thundercracker is a god among bad toys.

    Well, until the end.

    Also, noticed you switched names towards the end. Called the Mini-Con Swindle instead of Zapmaster in robot mode.

    Wow, that minicon is pathetic.

    The only one that ever looked somewhat cool to me is the small red jet.

    Also, I would make this line a candidate for the most horrible transformer line ever.

    Oh, there might be a worse offender... but I need toys from that line before I can be the judge of that.

    Holy shit, that Tetris bit was genius.

    Hilarious review, as always. I remember buying a BTR way back when.

    And returning it ten minutes later.

    Is it because it looked like Thundercracker?

    There we go. I wanted to work in a Russian reference and the Tetris was perfect for skipping all the block assembling.

    That's a pretty obscure reference.

    Although the fact his head is just one seperate peice has gotten me wondering where I can find this guy for cheap...so I can start a face collection for ROTF Prime!:lol

    Wow, I think this figure speaks for the whole line pretty much. I forgot how bad it was as my little brother owns a BTR Jetfire. I don't see the need for any more BTR's since they have the same base, but I know you'll still do Hot Shot as:
    A.He's Hot Shot, you'll never abuse him enough
    B.He was a donation, and not just any, but one from King Laffo himself.
