    My son has been asking me about this figure for months, since we first saw renders. Checked all the targets/walmarts around me today and it's just a sea of deluxe shockwave, grimlock, etc. Anybody see Thunderhowl in California yet?

    I haven't seen him in stores myself. I have a pre-order in at Amazon but that says they won't ship until Nov. 5th.

    Thank you for your impressions. I saw the pics and felt he was lackluster, especially the masked face. I wanted a Thunderhowl since I like to aupport new characters, so I'll probably go for the Ultra.

    I don't have any of the other Deluxes, and while I kinda want the Maccadam BAF, I think they're not worth it for me. Here's hoping they make a CHUG figure of Maccadam based on this design.

    I put up a review thread with more pics:
    Cyberverse Deluxe 08 Thunderhowl

    After reading another post, went back to watch the Thunderhowl episode. I remember this toy being announced even before season 3 aired. The Deluxe toy doesn't match the animation model and is way off. Also has the wrong color scheme. The ultra toy is closer to the animation model but also has the wrong color scheme. I wonder if the Deluxe toy was based off an early concept model or something...which may explain why he looks more like a trash panda instead of wolf in alt mode.

    Now knowing that...still rate him as 'meh'. At least he's better than the E/F tier Deluxe bots of Grimlock, Gray-tron, and especially Hot Red.

    Sounds like a good Thunderhowl is just hard to find. I ended up not liking the Ultra much at all (the partsforming was disappointing). Luckily my eight-year-old liked it pretty well, so I ended up just passing it off to him.

    This looks like a good base for a new Wolfang figure.

    I've been updating the review thread. His wolf head now keeps popping off, as well as the elbow joints. Meh. The trash panda had so much potential.

    I don't think Target.com even has a listing yet.

    I got mine from Walmart. Their online is notoriously inaccurate as they usually clump together all toys of a line/class for their "stock". Went to 3 Walmarts that said had stock in the area. Only 1 actually did, and I was surprised it actually did. Walmart at least here is usually way behind Target for Cyberverse figures.
