    That was quick, spotted at an Apple Valley Target in Minnesota.

    Appears to have mushroom pegged joints near the knees and elbows, ball jointed shoulders, and ankle tilt.

    For those curious: The cape appears to come off.

    And the sword can peg in to the tail, either in alt mode or when he's using it as a scabbard. Here's the hole for it.

    Is the cape rubbery or a hard plastic?

    It's stiff plastic. And you can see the parts that drape over his shoulders are somewhat reinforced.

    I haven't decided if I'm buying it yet (still at the store running errands) but it looks really good in hand.

    Not 100% sure, but the cape may be part of what holds the armor in his chest when not deployed. I've never bought one of these before.

    Might though for this dude.

    Wait. Are the stock photos on the back of the box more cartoon accurate than the actual figure?! :sly:  No. I think he's still green. Just seems darker on the back for whatever reason.

    I *think* there was a figure recently that wasn't revealed before we found it in US retail.

    People probably glossed over this searching for the Seeker 2-pack.

    Looks like the cape has to come off for the Energon Armor to engage.

    For some reason Thunderhowl kind of reminds me of Thundertron, similar name, blue color scheme, quadrupedal beast mode, wields a sword.

    And the differences between them is one is a Pirate and the other is a Paladin.
