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

Well it's about time these things started showing up in actual numbers in Michigan, I may grab an extra one for a custom Skywarp, but only if I happen upon it

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 Thanks.

On Facebook, XM Studios has posted a new teaser render for an upcoming licensed Megatron statue they're working on. The highly stylized take on G1 Megatron has all of the recognizable elements, though done in a style that's more like movie-meets-G1. Interestingly it's also called out as being "1/10 scale". But without an indication what they're basing the "real" height on, that doesn't offer much clarity toward the size that this statue will ultimately be. We've mirrored the teaser image below, click through and take a look!
Transformers At The Moon has posted the latest in their series of deleted audio and extended scenes from the original 1984 The Transformers cartoon series! This time, they've got over ten minutes' worth of dialogue from "Heavy Metal War," featuring the first appearance of the Constructicons. Keep reading to see the video along with a transcript of the dialogue.
The closure of ToysRUs provokes a lot of emotions - sadness, frustration at the circumstances, and in some a misguided sense of satisfaction stemming from their latter-day pricing habits. But at some point in our lives a great many of us were ToysRUs Kids. And so longtime Transformers fan and ASMzine proprietor Phil Zeman has created the site I Didn't Want to Grow Up, which is accepting submissions of your stories and reminiscences of visiting what was once the premiere source of action figures for children and collectors. Click through for a link!
Few would guess the last piece to be reissued from the original Transformers Generation 1 series would be the music scores. Even though the original cartoons have been reissued, updated and restored multiple times. Fans that have been asking for copies of the Original Sound Tracks (OST) masters have finally gotten theirs, on vinyl of all things. IF, they were fast enough to buy one of the 2,000 copies that sold out in less than 10 minutes. The good news is a second pressing is in the works.
ALL GOOD THINGS…! Rodimus and the Crusadercons have reached their final destination. The trouble is, it’s not Cyberutopia. In fact, it’s not ANYWHERE. But they’d better get used to it, because they’re going to be there until the end of Time…
