    There's a Go! about 25 minutes from me. I might check it out this week and see if I get lucky.

    I’m sorry but that looks fucking terrible. It’s 95% blue. I got Acid Storm and was in no way impressed with the mold, the ridiculous lack of paint, or the gimmick and it’s what actually turned me off of Cyberverse.

    Are there people who would legitimately buy this over any of the other seeker molds out there that are legitimately better? Like the Siege mold isn't perfect but it's only 10 dollars more and has infinitely better articulation and (I'm assuming because I don't own it) feeling in hand

    Probably, but at least this one doesn't have that awful battle damage.

    Wow $20? I thought this line was geared towards the younger Transformers fans. This is pretty steep if that’s the case.

    I agree. He's not worth $20. More like $10.

    The main page seemed like it was implying that this guy was only available online in Canada. I've got a load of them at my local TRU. They've even been $5 off for a good while now.

    If you only wanted one Thundercracker ever, no, but I imagine there are many who will buy this, the Siege voyager, and all other ones that come along.

    Well the high prices in Australia are well documented throughout the rest of the collectors community. But to my knowledge its not a dealee greed thing, its a government important tax thing that drives up the prices of everything on that island. You guys should band up and riot in front of that stupid looking opera house in Sydney. Let the government know you guys are tired of the BS.

    Honestly, I like both. I just wish Seige didn't ruin it with ugly bird droppi-I mean battle damage. And its easier to make small paint corrections by applying red striping, then it is to remove ugly battle damage with harsh chemicals and risk the plastic becoming brittle or discolored years down the road. Seige has superior quality, but despite its issues, I like CV too.

    For anyone complaining about the price, understand that Go! Calendar Stores generally are mall stores with high mark-ups. Normally, this is a $12-15 figure at Walmart or Target.

    That said, the only appeal is if you've been buying some Cyberverse and want to complete the cast. I don't think there's any plans for a Thundercracker one-step or Mega class figure, so this would be the only way to get the character for the series. Because otherwise, it's an awful toy. I have a warrior-class Starscream and it's by far one of the worst Seeker toys ever made.

    Nobody ever reported having found him at a Canadian TRU store, that's why!
