Transformers Masterpiece Thundercracker Figure No Longer On Sale at ToysRus.com - UPDATE
Jack - Wednesday, September 05, 2012


UPDATE. Toys R Us have removed the page for some reason. According to others, orders they placed were not honored as wekk. TRU had posted an online order page for the toy that is currently listing for discounted price of $55.99 USD down from $69.99. At this point, it may have been a special offer page that was published too soon? Perhaps a Black Friday deal, who knows. Sorry for getting your hopes up. Any updates on the offer will be posted ASAP.

Product Description
THUNDERCRACKER looks down on those who cannot fly with sneering disdain, often going out of his way to attack creatures that cannot fly, just to prove his superiority. It was this attitude that led to him being recruited into the original Seekers squadron alongside STARSCREAM® and SKYWARP®. Though his loyalty to the DECEPTICON cause is less than total, the fact that he is allowed to indulge his impulse to assault those he considers inferior keeps him flying for MEGATRON®.

The power of this unbelievable Masterpiece THUNDERCRACKER figure cannot be denied! This highly articulated and posable DECEPTICON figure stands tall on his display stand, his weapons at the ready. His canopy opens and his nose-cone swings open when you convert him to fighter jet mode, and his hidden missile pods give him fighter power AND firepower! He comes with 2 different heads so you can change his look depending on what kind of trouble he's about to cause for the AUTOBOTS. Take your TRANSFORMERS adventures to the next level with this incredible Masterpiece THUNDERCRACKER figure!

I finally got mine on Friday! Yay! I actually talked with the guy who unloads the trucks. He told me that he limits these 1 a customer. He actually wrote up tickets for them. Needless to say 3 of the 4 where gone right when the store opened. I am happy that I was finally able to secure one. ... read more

I'm really hearing about more and more of these showing up and being available for fans/collectors since the limits were put into place. Yeah he's few and far between but not nearly as MIA as that first week. Add that to the fact that so many fellow collectors are posting sightings with loca... read more

I just walked into the Toys R Us in National City, here in California (San Diego), and I asked if they had Thundercracker. The cashier looked it up in the computer and it said that they had four of them on-hand, but the were not on the shelf. She called to the back and the stock guy found "One&... read more

Just came back from Jackson, MI with mine. There were two on the shelf still and they were 30 min from closing. If you want one, call ahead and they'll pull it for you until closing. When I was living in Georgia my "local" TRU said they would not be getting Masterpiece Hot Rod, but ... read more

The Jackson, MI store had no problem holding one for me until they close tonight. The TCs are apparently out in the store as I was told that mine would have to be picked up at the Customer Service desk. I'll let you know what I find when I get there.

Anyone else notice that the product image has a paint error on it? It shows the reflector pictures on the front of the shoulders. I wonder if any of those errors will end up in circulation.

If anyone does secure an extra one while I am searching, I can trade my Amazon Bruticus preorder for it. Please email me at jthuconn@hotmail.com. Thanks.

Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present Ultra Magnus from Transformers: Generation 1. Designed by renowned artist Josh Nizzi, famous for his interpretation for the Transformers movies.

Read on for the full details and image.
Once again, Twitter user @miiakira2017 has posted an image of their Transformers-related design work. Today, it's a classic car- the specific make, if any, eludes RAC - that would have turned into a laser pistol-wielding cowboy. Though there's a slight resemblance to 2010's Hunt for the Decepticons Scout-class Hubcap, the replies peg this as a Diaclone-era design, so well before that figure was designed and likely a coincidence. Keep reading to see!
Hobby Lobby has had a few waves now of different kinds of Transformers art stamped in to sheet metal. A new offering in this line has just recently hit, bringing some new choices. We found today two pieces featuring G1 Optimus, and Bumblebee, represented in the design of the 2006 Classics toy, at Hobby Lobby. They were priced at $18.99 each, which may seem a touch steep for something the size of perhaps a small calendar. But we can't deny the art on them look really sharp. Click through for images of both!
