    Skipped out on the orig Thundertron to see what this was about

    Looks awesome. Love the new head and hook hand. Calcitron will go great with Bouldercrash (the only rock guy I have and really care about atm), Nightstrike is neat. His episode was one of my favorites from RID. Definitely gonna get this set

    Does Nightstrike looks like Batman black white suit. While SG Ratbat is based on Blue suit batman.

    Wish he had more differences. Wish he had the claws pointing up on his shoulders and at least a different paint job. Also a third magneous is kinda overdoing it

    Is there anything creative one can do with 2 magneus figures?

    Wanted to grab nucleus but unless there’s something to do with 2 of that mold I’d rather not have the same mold twice.

    There's piles of posts in this thread and the capsule thread describing the paint differences though.

    YouTube (Legacy):
    This is the best value for a leader class we've seen in years, separately these would've cost ~$65. I'm really bummed that I don't care an ounce for any of these repaints...or their original figures for that matter.
    besides "ratbat". I swear, if I give into buying another set just to get a cassette bot I'm gonna lose it lol

    Man, that hook is not good. New head is fine. Price is good though.

    This makes me realise I’ll buy any rock Hasbro puts out. I don’t care if it’s just a repaint with a new head, GIVE IT TO ME.

    Kind of disappointed that Calcitron is another Magneous redeco. Not because of mold fatigue or anything like that but I’d like some more variety in the rock dudes. Ill still buy him to beef out the ranks (and I love the Magneous mold), but it’s a shame that more than half of them look the exact same.

    I mean, the Junkions had so much variety (even with the Scraphook mold being used 4 times) but it feels like the Hasbro designers stopped drafting new designs when they got to Magneous.

    If retail Thundertron is younger and this one is old, does that mean that the OG toy is hospice Thundertron?
    I can imagine him singing Hurt since all of his toys mean he was nearly in a show, only for it to be canned…

    In retrospect, with how similar both Thundertrons are, I'm surprised that they didn't simply release a Thunderhowl version of this mold as mainline and consolidate the Thundertron releases down to this one capsule figure.
