Transformers Masterpiece Thundercracker Toys R Us Exclusive In-Hand Images - Figures Sighted in USA

By Jack on Saturday, August 25, 2012



Thanks to Seibertron member formula93 who has posted image of the Toys"R"Us Masterpiece Thundercracker that he found at US retail at TRU stores in Kansas. Formula93 has posted images of the figure in and out of package as well has revealed some very cool details about the toy: "...if you can't make it out, he has what amounts to an arm tatto on each bicep that has a picture of G1 Reflector, and the words "Say Cheese." Pretty neat touch." Check out the images and comments by formula93 for more details.
    Here are a few pics of TC, albeit on my crappy phone camera. You'll notice in the pic with the green circle, there was a stress mark on that tab straight out of the package. It connects the arm to the wing in plane mode. Might want to be careful. I figured everybody knows the scale of this mold, so there aren't any of those pics. Also, if you can't make it out, he has what amounts to an arm tatto on each bicep that has a picture of G1 Reflector, and the words "Say Cheese." Pretty neat touch. The sidewinder missiles are included, but I don't think there's anywhere to store them in jet mode, as his null ray blasters are now permanently mounted to his arm. The two face gimmick is absent, but the instructions still refer to it, as they're the same for the old MP Seeker figs. They also don't refer to the new heels, which are a FANTASTIC addition. I finally have a seeker that can stand on his own!

Lol yeah tell me about it! I'm really hoping I can snag 2 online or find some in stores. If I happen to find any extras I'll let everyone here know and sell them off at cost+shipping, nothing more just to help out someone avoid the scalpers! I was pissed when the manager told me tha... read more

Good luck man, remember any main retail store should be able to check availability in all stores within about 100 miles, from then it's just hoping you can dial faster than someone can make it to the counter with one, I know that before I called the store I got mine from they had 2 in stock, 1 ... read more

Yeah ebay prices are fucking nuts! I've got 3 TRUs in town, 1 didn't get any in today, 1 was sold out by the time They answered the phone, and the 3rd admitted he sold off 2 cases to 1 dude as soon as the doors opened (and I had called all 3 within 10 minutes of opening). On all the per... read more

Your best bet is to try calling any TRU's that you know do get them whenever they get their truck to see if they have any in stock, I've never had a problem with TRU's holding anything for me until the end of the day, the only TRU close to me I was told by the manager simply elects to ne... read more

On Facebook, user z75sales has finished up with the production sample G2 Protectobots, posting some group images as well as the promised gallery of the set combined as Defensor. While Bruticus may have come to be synonymous with the concept of G2, Defensor probably truly represents it better, and now you can see it in all its eye-searing glory! We've again mirrored some of the pictures, and you can find links to the originals below, so keep reading to see it - just for your own safety, don't look directly at Defensor.
While most of us had eyes only for Botcon, user z75sales on Facebook was posting galleries of the production sample original G2 Protectobots, found in the collection of a deceased Hasbro employee. As of this posting Hot Spot is the most recent, and this may be the best look you'll ever get at an original G2 Hot Spot, which is actually quite sad. A gallery of Defensor is promised to follow soon. We've mirrored a few of the photos to get you started, but go check out the full galleries as well!
