Thundercracker is nearly identical to Starscream, which he is copied from. He is colored in his trademark blue, red, black, and silver colors. Most of his body is a dark blue: lower legs, fins, wings/sword, torso, forearms, and nosecone. He has black back torso parts, fists, shoulders, head, and sword tip. He has grey upperlegs, rear feet stabilizers, upper arms, launcher frames, and eyes. His missiles are also grey. He has a very nice yellow-orange canopy.
The only real difference between Thundercracker and Starscream, aside from colors, is his launcher locks are remolded. If you squeeze my Starscream launchers toward the center, they will release. On Thundercracker you MUST use a minicon. Sorry, no shortcut on this guy.
Zapmaster, his minicon is exactly the same mold as Starscreams Swindler. He is colored in grey, black, and blue.
In robot mode he has a grey chest spoiler, forearms and legs. His feet/spoiler is blue. His torso including head and wheels are black. There are no mold changes.
If you liked Starscream, You will love Thundercracker. I sorta dread the remolded Skywarp, but will probably get him too. I am glad they chose to relaease this repaint. Good molds re-done are a good idea.
