    I decided to go to an out of the way Walmart we don't normally frequent to see if they had a better selection of TF stuff than the closer one here.

    It so paid off.
    I found this sitting on the top of the shelf, barely noticeable behind the gaggles of leader Megatrons and various other toys.

    It was the last one in the entire store, and still only $10.
    I about skip-dippity-doo-dah'd all the way to the car.

    The girl who got it down for me was very surprised. She was working on Friday, and said that all the bonus-2packs were gone within an hour after the sales started at 5am.

    Just had to share. I'm so freaking happy *does cartwheels*

    Sweet! You're going to love Excellion. Thundercracker, not so much. But hey he's a jet, and those are cool right?

    Thundercracker's not so bad. He's not the best TF ever, but he is enjoyable enough. Both at $10 is a steal.

    Thundercracker rocks, plain and simple. Excellion easily beats him though on raw coolness, but in a 'vs' pack together, you got an awesome showdown.

    Yeah, the jets are a little iffy with transforming. I keep worrying that I'm gonna break them >_<
    I have much love for Thundercracker, but if only it had been Skywarp in that package :)

    Great find man! I went to my Walmart on Black Friday looking for these and was lucky enough to get the one of the few remaining Excellion & Thundercracker and Downshift & Cannonball. $10 each hard to pass up.:D 

    When I was trying to get these, a lot of parents werer angry because they couldn't find any Bumblebee figures, must of thought he was on sale as well.

    Keep worrying man. The third day after opening Thundercracker both his shoulder hinges snapped when I was transforming him. I have got Skywarp but I barely transform him because of those weak shoulder hinges.

    Anyway, $10 for 2 deluxes :thumb

    I've never had a single problem with TC. I even repainted one as dirge and havn't had a problem with that one either.

    I noticed some stressing on my thundercrackers shoulder cage as well. To bypass wear on cybertron thundercracker/skywarp perhaps rather than pushing on the front of the cage (where the cockpit is) and expecting the stressed panel to follow. Try holding the upper cage (shoulder area) and pushing that down. should save some toys from breaking.
