    I was lucky enough to score a ER Thrust from my buddy with the Asian hookup.

    DA BOX:

    He's got the Cybertronian Villains branding, similar to other Target Exclusives from this line; Skywarp & Thundercracker and the Clones 2-pack, although Runabout (also a Target exclusive) did not carry this branding. Weird. Anywho...

    DA ROBOT MODE:

    Odds are you've already fiddled with a version or two of this mold, and even if you haven't held the ER version, you've probably had experience with the Classics Seeker mold, which this is heavily based on. The colors on this dude are awesome. Tight joints all around on my copy.

    And you CAN pose him with the wings up, but just like the original Classics mold the wings will interfere with arm articulation and just fold back as soon as you move the arms at all. It's better to have them folded down.

    DA JET MODE:

    I mean... *chef's kiss*

    Although I'd love to see that noclsecone painted black.

    Just gorgeous... I'm in nerd heaven completing this set.

    EDIT: Nonnef null rays all around.

    And the new shelf setup. Battlechargers moved down to their proper place on the 86 shelf.

    Nice review dude! I like that you can flip the wings up like the Generations toy. I know it's not G1 accurate but I might prefer that configuration.

    So, does this one also have the painted shoulder tabs like the other 5?

    Same; I noticed the hinges on it when I was looking at promo images the other day.

    I loathe and avoided the mould's other uses, but I might actually get this one.

    Good to know you CAN fold up the wings as shown.

    Easily the finest incarnation of my favourite Conehead! (Dirge is a very close second, though)

    It's a wee bit frustrating that they came within a hair's breadth of perfection here, and then fell at the final hurdle by not maintaining paint application continuity between the alt-mode and the robot head nose cones. D'oh!

    :D

    He sure is pretty! Hopefully I can find one locally or via TRU.ca. Thrust and Thundercracker are/were my only two wants from this mold. I was able to get a TC and I'm hopeful that I won't have to resort to ebay for Thrust like I did with TC.

    Should be getting mine next week! He looks great, though his fans seem slightly large/awkward in a way I can't properly articulate. Might just be pics vs in person though.

    Received Thrust today. He looks great in person. QC is the overall the best of our 4 Coneheads. I would rank him a little above Sandstorm since he's the 1st Conehead we have that has a properly painted head cone. The others had areas that didn't reach or went past the molding line. He appears to have the least amount of paint of the 4, but that's not a bad thing since none of the major contact points have paint. So, paint scuffing shouldn't be a significant issue with Thrust.

    The ankle wings are a bit odd. It seems like they were meant to be pinned but then later abandoned: the pin holes are empty. This does allow the ankle wings to be positioned differently if you want them higher up (can't rotate, have to remove and then replace). The main wings may also be rotated differently.

    Standard wings configuration.

    Both sets of wings inverted. Again, have to remove the ankle wings in order to change positions.

    I'm trusting in time this will be in stores, even if it takes a little while.

    Got him. Love him. As much as one can love the awkward moving and backwards looking Earthrise Seeker mold anyway. But.. who gives? The team is complete!

    Man I can't wait for this guy. Possibly my most desired figure out of all of Earthrise.

    If it helps anyone. The chest plate on my thrust is very flexable. Like more than the other guys. It will bow if you push in on it. So I'm slightly a lightly less terrified of it breaking. Still concerned from the photos of it the piece cracking.
    Annoyingly it flexes enough that shoulders come untabbed if moved in a certian way 16087599166194902089771684217133.jpg 16087599352298550789976355544257.jpg
