    Just want to get some input on this guy. I am on the fence about getting him. I never bothered buying a case of the wave 2.5 because he was the only new character and he was the chase. Is he worth picking up now for $35? I have all the other figures but the thundercracker. I just got the Prime trailer today. Ideas? Input?

    That's a good price for him, go for it. There's been a fair number of the red-boxed variety from the THS-02 bonus thingy popping up lately, that's helped the price stay lower. It's also totally worth getting the sticker set from Reprolabels.

    He is my 2nd favourite WSTF, second only to Megatron.

    I'd love to get him at that price. Where did you find him? Does the seller (store?) have any more?

    so you just have no interest in the Thundercracker from that wave either hu? well, I can safely say that WST HotRod is worth every penny. After you TF him the first time, you'll hate minicons :lol

    I do have an interst in him but can not see spending as much money as it would command on a wst. $35 is pushing it.

    Yes. Both were chases, but Skywarp was from wave 1 I think and goes for a lot more money than Thundercracker. There's kos available of both though, both color and transluscent. I think they're by the same guy that does the Prime trailers.

    Both (real versions) show with LoCs. Thundercracker has Reprolabels applied.

    Hmmm...I think I am just going to pick up the hot rod since he is not a repaint of something I already have....but I will keep an eye out for TC and SW.
