Just curious, has anyone heard how much is TC gonna cost at TRU?
Nope. I'd guess between $50-100
Probably however much the other MP Seekers costed at Walmart plus $5-10 (probably $10) for the TRU tax.
That would be $70...
Well rodimus was 60 so thundercracker will likely be the same.
Wait so is thundercracker ccoming out next summer?
This October dude.
Thanks guys, that's what I thought. Man this is gonna be a busy 9 or 10 months in the TF world......bring them !!!
I'd guess $60-$70... MP Rodimus did have that $10 price spike for a little bit... I'd like it if they repainted that mold into Skywarp as well..
Woah sic so he's coming around the same time as optimus?!
Actually optimus is due this month according to the SDCC info card.
Yea, which actually makes me think he'll be super easy to find. I can see more people going after the Op as opposed TCracker. Also, the fact that Skywarp shelf warmed so bad at Walmart despite starting off at a cheaper price makes me think Thundercracker will suffer a similar fate.
Honestly, after how bad Skywarp did, I was not counting on ever seeing Thundercracker released in the states. Maybe Hasbro thinks that because it's using the updated seeker mold it'll sell better. I actually think that may prevent some people from buying him due to the fact that he looks different from the other two US Seeker releases in bot mode.
Can't wait to see Thundercracker in stores, might make me buy Thundercracker instead of having to substitute the Original Deco of MP-03 for T-Cracker (I like my Blue Screamer, Don't get me wrong, He's just this somewhat aqua color that looks like it would fit a generic seeker better than Screamer, or for that matter Thundercracker)
T-Cracker might even make me wanna buy The Correctly colored Screamer and Warpie.
Expecting $70, hoping for $60!
Sadly expecting $75, figuring they'll take their cue from all the other items being marked up by that time.
But also hoping for $60.
Ironic since if there was some sort of confirmation of a Skywarp being released using the new MP Seeker mold, I'm sure Thundercracker sales would take care of themselves. Hasbro must have some clue how the fandom hates having a mismatched trio of something (the Seekers especially but the DOTM Wreckers are another example) where 2 figures are done right but the 3rd is either MIA (Deluxe Leadfoot and HA Topspin) or an odd duck.
I had actually gotten the price for this dude at one point and posted it somewhere, but i can't remember where for the life of me. I'm going to have my friend who's working now look it up for me, and I'll get back to you.
EDIT: Price is $69.99.
At least we got a price...$10 more than I'd like, but whatever, I can manage.
Do you have any ETA/pricing on MP Prime?
If I knew his UPC number I could get at least the price, but apparently no one thought to get a picture of that part of the box at ComicCon...
So release date & price for Thundercracker set...when we gonna see Skywarp? =P
