    Since there's already preorders up for a Skywarp from the FOC Starscream mold, do you think we'll be getting a Thundercracker repaint from Hasbro or Takara anytime soon?

    I'm debating on preordering Skywarp..I missed out on the DOTM one so I just have a lonely Starscream and Thundercracker and I didn't want to miss out on this Skywarp again.

    I tossed up a preorder for Skywarp from BBTS (yes, I'm a hypocrite). Since they don't charge until it's in it's a safe preorder. If Hasbro reveals Skywarp, I'll cancel my order and save some bucks.

    As for Thundercracker, I'd say it is a very safe bet he'll get made. And yeah, I want him too. I need my Seeker trio.

    Skywarp is pretty cheap on HLJ and unlike AmiAmi, isn't sold out. Probably because they've mistyped his name as "Sky Warp" so people who are searching "Skywarp" don't find him.

    Aaanyway, I really hope we do get Thundercracker. I've preordered both Takara Starscream and Skywarp and it would feel like there's a hole in my collection without their third.

    I'd say yes. TC is the Seeker repaint Hasbro always relies on while poor Skywarp gets left behind.

    (Think MP, DoTM, GDO Legends...)

    I hope so. I'm a sucker for Thundercracker repaints.

    I'd say there is a pretty good chance, it's just a question of whether it' later in this line, or in a new line of figures down the road. Seeker redecos are easy money, and judging from past releases [Hasbro] knows that too.

    What do you mean he's still open for pre-order?
    TG-18 Sky Warp by Takara Tomy | HobbyLink Japan

    If it's made my bet it'll be Takara. They've done it for the Prime line with FE Screamer, normal release AM Skywarp, and Exclusive AM Thundercracker. Don'y really see why they would do two of the three WFC seekers.

    Hasbro that's another question. I honestly gave up trying to guess what repaints they might do since they've passed up a lot of repaints that just seemed natural ie. WFC magnus from WFC Prime.
