    My guess is, because the DOTM Thundercracker was dark blue, and the other versions were light blue. Or because DOTM TC could be conceivably be in the Chicago battle (as previously discussed in this thread, and noted in the text on the box).

    The more I think about it . . . The more I want a Skywarp repaint of this now. I like black and purple more than blue.

    Perhaps it's because Berserker and Crankcase did? That's not a direct claim, just some observations that link the aesthetics of the three. TRU Prime shelfwarms like crazy because (a it looks god-awful (b it's another $30 Prime that also has the stunning feature of looking nothing like the movie one and (c is usually hidden behind cooler stuff (or dragonstorm), at least in my area. I don't know though. This guy actually looks like the actual devil. Kids might like that? I remember going to Best Buy and seeing the Premium Voyager Megs fly off the shelf (while I acquired the God-tier Ratchet). Time will tell.

    I will be quite annoyed if they don't do Skywarp at some point. That reminds me, they still owe us a Thundercracker from the RiD2015 mold.

    And I do hope the head comes off, I'll be happy to get shapeways seeker faces and paint some spare titan masters.

    Kinda wish they didn\'t just do a nitro repaint and actually put a little more effort into it. But at the same time........ I\'m going to get it.

    Well, the character never actually appeared in the movies. So he's getting quite a bit more than he logically should.

    Till now it was a way to release figures that otherwise wouldn't be carried at mass retail.

    It'll be hard convincing another retailer to carry MPs for example, since I doubt Walmart will.

    At this point, MPs are better off being sold by Takara only.
