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!

There's a point where things can be so bad, they are good. The folks at Shredders have taken this idea to the next level with their line of pop culture inspired Xmas sweaters. Fans will be happy to know they can get a wonderfully tacky Transformers sweater rippling with woven Optimus Prime goodness. The sweaters can be ordered online in sizes from XS, for the kids, to XXXL for the big folks too at $79.99 USD. Read on for the details and a look at the hideous goodness.
Bryce Malek, who served as story editor for the first two seasons of the original Transformers cartoon, filmed a short movie showing his workplace at Marvel Productions. Part of the video shows Malek looking over a draft script of The Immobilizer, here titled "The Molecule Immobilizer". While this doesn't offer a lot besides Malek's attempts at basic cinematography, it's an interesting and rare chance to see behind the scenes where the scripts for Transformers were created. Click through and check out the embedded video!
Thanks to Weibo member transformers we have news and an image giving us a first look at a new Optimus Prime project from Ori Toy. The shot shows what appears to be some kind of bust of the Autobot Leader. Juding from the name, it could a die-cast-like version of Prime's torso detailing and all the drool worth goodness that goes with. Check out the image till we know more.
The WIP Department Facebook page has posted an extensive gallery from Toy Soul 2014! Among the new things on the page is one heretofore unknown Transformers product from Kids Logic: an SD G1 Devastator! We'll have more info on that as it becomes available, but for now keep reading to see it- and check out WIP Department's page for a LOT of non-Transformers stuff from Toy Soul!
This is a Transformers concept by Andrew Mercer who started working on this concept back in 2011. Knowing that 2014 was the 30th anniversary year, he thought this line would be a cool way to celebrate the rich history of the brand. Figures that could reformat between different Generations in the same way they could Transform from robot to vehicle. Transformat = Reformat + Transform.
