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

Riptapparel has been cranking out their own Transformers t-shirts and other goods, for some time now. The designs tend to be hit and miss, but this one that just landed is probably one of my favorites.

Featuring everyone's favorite Transoformers flying saucer, Cosmos. The t-shirts are listed at $16 USD with hoodies, bags, coasters and other items available.

Last year's short but memorable Transformers: Devastation featured a boss battle with Shockwave where the one-handed logician displayed a fascinating, very video-gamey power: the ability to create duplicates of himself. Naturally you'd think this was an invention by Platinum Games... but it's not! The Transformers Wiki has posted to Twitter a picture of Shockwave's description from the original 1984 series bible, with some very familiar but new information. Keep reading to see!
