    The plastic was shit on hound but the rest have been fine. I would advise buying your MPs from Amazon Japan if you are concerned about the quality as they offer refunds.

    got an email from TCP that Thundercracker will be available in 1 day!

    I'm being sucked back in the MP game!

    Can’t blame you but it looks like that crack may have been there out of the box, if so, it’s likely an assembly error. Otherwise that plastic isn’t likely to crack like that. Hope you can get an exchange/refund.

    Well, I caved and placed a late order through GS. Hopefully my copy won't have any issues. Crossing my fingers...

    Do me a favor, let us know when your credit card has either been charged or a tracking number has been provided. My order hasn’t updated so I’m wondering if the new orders are moving faster. -Thanks .

    What!? What discount is that? I'm jealous.

    Unfortunately TC hit my BBTS loot.


    Anyone have him yet...are his legs and ankles as loose as Screamer?

    I went to Toy Arena to buy TC. His joints are super tight. Had me worried and I took my time transforming him. He’s just about as loose as the slots in Vegas.

    He came out 2 months ago..........
    Most people considered him an improvement over Starscream

    Just got my TC from BBTS this afternoon. I was pretty fortunate a couple months ago with Starscream who had decent ankles, cracks only around the rear fins, and good paint. TC is even better--he has even tighter ankles than SS, no cracks, and nearly flawless paint. Mine came in the black Hasbro outer box and I have to wonder if I again benefited from getting an item that potentially came near the end of the production run after the workers had a chance to familiarize themselves with the process. I'm happy to wait a couple of extra months if it means better QC.
