    I picked up MP Thundercracker at TRU today, and just can't decide. I don't normally leave things in the box, but this one has me stuck. Advice?

    Buy a second... Like I did. Box is awesome for robot mode, looks clean and perfect. Opene one and mostly leaving it in jet.

    But if a second one isn't an option, and you aren't typically a MISB collector then crack that bad boy open! The jet mode is too sweet not to transform it.

    This^



    Also for me, if I'm gonna buy a toy, I'm gonna enjoy it. For me, this usually means having it as a display piece, but keeping em boxed just hasn't appealed to me.

    Boxes are so much more fun than a Masterpiece Transformer. I transform my boxes all the time by rotating them 180 degrees on the shelf.
