    So what's the story with Thundercracker's accessories? BBTS shows a page that lists what he comes with, and then shows a box contents page. There's no flight stand or Megatron gun.

    Compare that with Sky Warp who clearly shows them AND list s them in the Box contents

    Now interestingly on the Pulse page, while they don't show the flight stand, they do list it. So are we assuming Pulse is correct and everyone else is wrong? They can't be skipping the flight stand, right? (and is TC really the only one not coming with a Megatron gun? That's a little weird, though I only NEED one it would be cool to have all 3 lined up holding Megatron (along with MP Soundwave who also came with one.)

    Thundercracker never wielded Megatron in gun-mode, so I don't think he gets a Megatron pistol. But the flight stand should be included.

    This has come up multiple times in this thread already. ;)  Thundercracker and Skywarp both come with the same stand as Starscream. Skywarp wielded Megatron in the cartoon, therefore he comes with a Megatron gun. Thundercracker does not come with a Megatron gun, as he never wielded Megatron in the cartoon. Thundercracker and Skywarp come with purple blast effects and yellow thruster effects. Starscream comes with all these effects in purple. If you want yellow thruster effects for Starscream, you have to get the coronation set for him which includes the yellow version. However, we currently don't know if it will be properly made absolutely outside of Japan. Last but not least, Starscream comes with more faces than Thundercracker and Skywarp come with. And that's about all there is to know about the differences. ;)

    Well that's good to hear, I apologize for retreading old ground. How do know exactly that he comes with one? Just common sense that they obviously wouldn't skip it? Or was it clarified by an official channel?

    I bet we've never spoken in this thread about him not coming with a mini Reflector.

    I'm hoping GameStop honors their PO prices due to them having an influx of $$$$$

    You joke, but I believe it’s a serious omission. It was one of his best scenes. I’ve got about 40 or so mini Megatrons from all the official and ko versions over the years. Don’t need another. A mini camera that can go in his hand? Yes please.

    odd they’d make the drill hand or the grabber claw, but not the reflector camera.

    It's interesting that only four characters have weilded Megatron in gun mode in the cartoon - Starscream (multiple times), Skywarp (twice), Soundwave (once I believe but might be more?), and Optimus (once).

    Prime actually did it twice - at the end of Countdown To Extinction when he used Megatron to shoot the exponential generator into space, which caused Starscream to crash as he was returning to Earth from Cybertron, and in The Insecticon Syndrome where the Insecticons grew large from eating that weird energy and he used Megatron to shoot Kickback and Bombshell with the cure and we got this memorable scene:

    Edit: Forgot to add one more character that wielded Megatron in the cartoon: Autobot Spike.

    I’m sure you are not alone with that shitty mentality.

    Ko’s (shit) not allowed in my house.

    That’s me transforming 36 after 100 times. I’m an expert now.

    He basically did, now that you mention it. In The Ultimate Doom, Part 3, he transformed and stayed in the air with no one holding him, while shooting at Skyfire.
