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

Imaginarium Art has posted a new render to their Facebook page revealing an upcoming statue. Inspired by the animated Transformers The Movie, the statue depicts Grimlock and Wheelie fighting off a pack of Sharkticons in a very dynamically arranged piece. This appears to be the payoff to a post from back in November where they showed off various angles of a high detail Grimlock render, which we can see now was being designed as the centerpiece to this statue. Pricing and release details TBD, but keep reading to get a good look at the renders!
Just when we thought we have seen it all, Transformers make the high-fashion scene at the 2017 Fall Menswear and Pre-Fall Womenswear Fashion show in Milan, Italy. Designer moschino was there with a whole line of clothing that feature none other than the original G1 Transformers. Based on original box artwork, There's more than meets the eye with these designs that are quite extreme, even by GeeWun standards.
Dr. Tess Hightower, wife of actor Richard Gautier, has reported to Facebook that Gautier passed away quietly last night at the age of 85. Gautier was likely best known to readers of this site as the voice of Rodimus Prime in the third season of the original The Transformers cartoon as well as Serpentor on GI Joe: A Real American Hero. He also had a long career of onscreen performances - most notably Hymie the robot on Get Smart - and was among his other talents a gifted caricaturist as evidenced by his website. TFormers offers its sincerest sympathies to his family, friends, and fans for their loss today.
Transformers @ The Moon has posted yet another tape of G1 dialogue! This one is a special treat, because it's from the episode that would come to be known as "Fire In The Sky," in which the character of Skyfire was introduced... but here, in the original unmodulated recording sessions, the name is given as Jetfire throughout! Keep reading to hear a lot of unused G1 dialogue!
Transformers At The Moon has returned to posting their recently-acquired tapes of G1 cartoon audio! For the most part this video is "SOS Dinobots," featuring some great unmodulated growls and snarls from Gregg Berger, Neil Ross, and Frank Welker. But also, the video opens with a clip from "Fire In The Sky" with Starscream referring to his old friend as Jetfire! Keep reading for the video, plus a link to the transcript of the dialogue and voice director Wally Burr's instructions!
