    How blind was the photographer that they didn't see the arms were flipped the wrong way (exposed fists)?

    It looks like the wings can fold up like the original 3 seekers. A better alternative would be to keep them unfolded but flip the turbines in robot mode to look like his wings were lower on his body in robot mode.

    Hope we get grey face thrust like the cartoon. Made him stand out more to me.

    Are you new to this fandom?

    (All joking aside, I suspect this is why Hasbro has increasingly been using CGI renders instead of actual photos. Shame they can't do anything about stock photos not taken by folks working directly for them. ...well, that's my assumption anyway.)

    Don't be such a nerd. How else is Hot Spot supposed to see where he's driving?

    I really hope that the wings can be flipped up completly like in the Classics mold. I find it really dumb how his wings seem to come out of his hips.

    It looks like they will flip up. Rest at ease. If they didn't change the tooling for the "tiny wings" on Ramjet and Dirge, I would not think there would be a change for Thrust. Pure baseless speculation here, but the face color differences make me think there might be a Netflix version of Thrust being that Hotlink has that same color of grey for his face.

    They can, in the vehicle mode pics you can see the same exact attachment point that exists on the 3 normal seeker wings and the front section of the wings on the coneheads. There's no clearance issues either. There's absolutely no reason to worry about a mistransformed product image. Hell, the product images for Bluestreak are the wrong figure, Thrust being mistransformed isn't a shocker

    100% wrong. They do not have photographers on their staff. They hire professional photographers for their shots. It’s a standard practice. I talked about this earlier this week on the Earthrise thread but someone who used to be a professional photographer explained that she was hired for stuff like this on a regular basis and the worst thing to photograph were toys because they’re ere not given anything but the figure. No instructions or anything and they have to do their best. Thai has the box so they had that hit that doesn’t mean they had instructions. It’s not just a hasbro thing it’s a thing with the industry.

    The two knuckle head seekers also lost their wing stripes (and yet Starscream who is a mass release :mad:  retained his ). It must have broke the budget with the new wing molds? :drunk

    those stripes weren’t in the cartoon. That’s why they’re based on

    Even waaaaaaaay back in the late 80. Mistransformed Fortmax in the catalog etc etc. It's just now, thanks to the "interwebs", it is easier to call them out. The mistakes that is.

    The turbines on their chest(Studio Ox influence) weren't in the show too and the fins on the ankles never appeared in 'bot form.
