    I personally would take a complete shade change and two other figures of completely different deco over “siege figures covered in shit”

    Now THAT'S a Rock Monster.

    Since I'm not a fan of the rocks, I'm going to headcanon Calcitron as some alien that Thundertron encountered in his revenge journey against Cannonball and is now a part of Thundertron's new crew as the anchor guy.

    It doesn't have to be covered in battle damage since it seems you don't like that. But some metallic sheen on Thundertron would have been nice.

    I like the doubling down on the pirate motif with this version, but I don’t think it’s hugely better than the solo release.

    I don’t love this trend of having multiple variations of the same character. It’s one thing if it’s like SS86 Blaster or the Gen Selects Autobot pack because by the time they came out their original releases were no longer available. But this Thundertron pack will most likely sit alongside the solo Wave 1 figure when it releases. Having two versions of the same figure out at the same time doesn’t seem like a great idea.

    Haha. Thats what i meant. Springer, a voyager at best, got bumped to leader. Thundertron comes with extras but its still divied up by leader class pricing. Hasbro is getting to be like fast joints raising prices like theyre doin.

    Damn it, still all in on this set. Wondering when and why they omitted the black paint on the skull design. Now looks like it has long eyes.

    You could just swap the hand instead? Don't see why you need to swap the whole arm...

    Because the hand is blocked by the claw so it's hard to get my finger in there to pull it out. I would need something to help push it out like a butter knife or something.

    I like thundertron but man imagine a Davy Jones deco in a sludge green.

    It's only blocked by the claw on one side (the complete opposite side of where it comes off), though? There's more than enough room to grab onto it from the top and bottom and simply wiggle it out of its mushroom slot.

    If Thundertron was another color I wouldn’t even be on the fence; I’d be all in. Two releases so similar is a tough pill. If I do get this it’ll be to customize (and keep the other two from as they are, they’re the main draw) but it would have been great if he was different by default.

    This totally could have been the Lio Convoy deco with the story that Thundertron is posing as Leo Prime for a heist or to smear his name.

    I could probably try that.

    And if you have any issues with the hook, simply rotate it so it is vertical.

    I can get that hook hand out easily. It's the hand that I think might be a little bit tricky but I'll give it a try.
