TFW Transformers Prime Thundertron Gallery

We've got something of a treat for you now, because it is not every day we get to share a gallery of the first character in an all-new faction with you! In this gallery update we have Transformers Prime Voyager Class Thundertron, leader (and so far only official member) of the new faction of Star Seekers, introduced in the Transformers Exodus novel.

Thundertron truly is a unique character. Design wise, he is chock full of molded details, a far cry from the typically "cleaner" design aesthetic of the Transformers Prime designs. He's also the first true beast we've had in a good long while, and to top it all off, he's an all-new character - not a homage or an obscure but existing character getting a toy for the first time. Also, he's a space-pirate robot with a peg leg. Arrrrr.

The toy himself is an excellent design. The beast mode is convincing, with more of a techno-animal feel to it than a Beast Wars one, while the robot mode has some good poseability and excellent balance, even with the peg leg! Design wise though, while he fits in with the other Prime toys, Thundertron blurs the line enough to look good with toys from other lines as well - which is good, given that three out of the four other named Star Seekers can be repurposed from other toys, and the four look pretty decent together.

All in all, well recommended. Thundertron is a good and fun toy, worthy of a purchase once he hits retail along with his wavemate Ultra Magnus. Open the link below to check out the gallery to see more of Thundertron and decide for yourself!

Transformers Prime Thundertron Beast Mode, a mighty lion (or liger)


Thundertron's Beast mode articulation is a little limited on the front paws, but you can still get some cool beastial posts out of him


Transformers Prime Thundertron has a little captain in him


Thundertron comes with a MechTech claw / sword, which swings out in a cool way, but does not lock. I used a rubber band to keep it extended for some of these shots.


Prime Thundertron looks pretty cool holding Prime Dreadwing's sword


Prime Dreadwing's sword can even peg into the holes on Thundertron's hips for storage!


Junkion Blacksmith's Infinity Warfare Swords also provide for some cutlass style weapons for Thundertron

This. FYI, he's getting a Lio convoy-inspired repaint for the Arms Micron version.

I thought he and those with him were the beasts. The Star Seekers are out to kill every Cybertronian for what happened to the Space Bridges. If he's as determined as Megatron, the Autobots and Decepticons may need work together to save themselves from an invasion force that wants nothing from them, save for their dwindling sparks.

I used to collect the Mugenbines, so I got Pirate back when he came out

I couldn't find a barrel for the Captain Morgan pose, but Pirate's treasure chest worked out just fine.

Thanks for the complements all
