    ok so the two pics below depict thundertron but they both give contradictory views of him. the first shows him from TF: Online MMO, where he seems to have a large built flying or jet like body and alt mode. the second pic shows the toy of him at botcon, he is the uncolored one in the middle. this, as well as some of his desciption in transformers:exiles, hint that he has a beast mode. so does anyone know for sure what exactly thundertron is or turns into?

    I'd like to see better pics of the toy. If it works in the Classics aesthetic, a repaint without a peg leg might go a long way.

    I'm hoping for better pics when SDCC rolls around. I love that they're doing a character from a book. :D

    Are we sure that the bot in the first picture is supposed to be Thundertron?

    It's a likely assumption. Thundertron is stated to be the leader of the Space Pirates, and the image also includes the leaders of the Autobots and Decepticons. Odds are the guy in the middle is the leader of the Space Pirates.

    It could be that they made the "space pirates" as a 3rd faction that both Autobot and Decepticon players can fight, both for the sake of narrative and to simplify game design. Thundertron will likely be a prominent "boss" character. That's what seems likely to me.

    i have a hunch the voyager toy is going to look nothing like the first picture from the game. unless hasbro wants to give us a blue lion.

    I think, don't quote me on this, that the Voyager's pegleg might be optional. The leg transforms into an arm cannon - it should be possible to leave it on though.

    A Barbarossa Transformer. (Well, he can't be Jack Sparrow, can he?) Wouldn't that be an awesome sight.

    I just want to know who thought that was anything approaching a good name.. especially for a pirate type.
