    But a voyager + a deluxe is more equivalent to a leader than a voyager with an extra sword, bomb, and a crappy hammer. It's more a multi pack than a real "leader", but it's closer to a leader than Springer is.

    Thundertron has an eye patch now??? :sly:  Here's where a lick of paint might help u sell the set! ;) 

    I agree with some of you: this set is nice but not really grand enough to double dip on molds that just came out yesterday!

    I'd love a set like this during the Xmas season, but with a holiday theme. This set feels like it has no cohesive theme at all.

    Why would a robot have a hook and not just replace it with a new hand? Same with the eye like yeah the rule of cool but the peg leg is optional.

    they seem to have slowly started doing it again with with all the recent kingdom beastwars re-releases and all of the Earthspark releases have super accurate decos compared to the hasbro releases.

    See now THAT is a rock monster headsculpt. Magneous just didn’t do it for me, but this guy actually gives off the vibe of some sort of rock or icy crystal dude. :)

    my main question is not why are they doing such a minor repaint of thundertron for this capsule, it's really more of why they made it in the first place. is there actually anyone who wanted this figure in the first place?

    I wonder if that’s actually a mouth on Calcitron, or if the three red things are all parts of a visor that peek out from the rock shell like cameras…

    I believe I actually see less paint apps on the new Thunderpiratecliche. Oh, and more clichés. How exciting! REMEMBER WHEN PIRATES WERE SO POPULAR OMG PIRATE DAY ARRRRRRRRR

    Since I don't have Thundertron already, I might get this if I find it at Ross or something for $25-$30, like my RID 2001 Scourge.
    Because with the other Thundertron on shelves currently I feel like this is going to end up there. Not because it's a bad set by any means, it seems like a pretty decent value all things considered.
    Modern Hasbro Prices: Voyager ($35) + Deluxe ($25) + Micromaster ($5) = $65
    Honestly, that considered it's kinda a good deal already. At the least it's not cheaping out like SS86 Springer. I can actually see the value here. But it's still not something I'm gunning for.
    Edit: Also, I just realized something, can the Magneous mold's pickaxe thing stick the Ratbat mold on the end? Because that might be how they do a pirate flag mast in this case.

    I passed on the initial release (also bc I never saw wave 1 voyagers in stores LMAO) so I\'d like to get this. I also passed on Magneous so this works for me twice as much

    I wish they had gone with Laserbeak instead of ratbat and made him parrot colors.

    Calcitron alone has me seriously contemplating grabbing this set. Magneous didn’t do it for me, he was a bit bland (I know he’s a rock lol, but still) but this. I love this. From the blues they used to the killer head sculpt, he’s hitting all the right notes for me. And since I don’t have Thundertron yet… this might be the perfect opportunity to finally check him out, lol.

    Many people as evident by these forums.
    It doesn't have paint on the back of the shoulder pads like the mainline release, but it has new paint apps on the new head. Otherwise, they have the same paint layout.

    Was ready to pass on this set, but damn that head sculpt is legit. Reminds me of Bill Nighy's Davey Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Yeah, I\'m liking the idea the mainline version is his younger self more and more.
    Also I had forgotten how cludged the original version was, his beard was buried in his own body.

    I'd say it is more like Blackbeard.
