He was a goddamn polaroid? Did Thundercracker have to shake the pic after it came out of Reflector? I love the '80's Does anyone know why he was dropped from the initial release of tf's in 1984 in the US? It seemed like he fit in well with the original Decepticons and he was obviously ready for his Saturday morning close-ups. Japan got him as a normal boxed release, with cool box art.
