MP-07 Thundercracker, Nissan GT-R Bot & New Henkei!

Thanks to Mike at Digital-Toys.com, we have found out some brand-new offerings just announced in Japan this morning.

First off, MP-07 Thundercracker has been confirmed for November.

There's will also be a new figure with a Nissan GT-R alternate mode with 2 versions, silver and red, also coming in November.

Mike says its possibly a Binaltech but he's still waiting on more information and pictures to be sure.

Next up, there will be new Henkei! for October including the following:
C-09 Lamborghini (Lambor aka Sideswipe)
C-10 Streak
C-11 Ironhide
C-12 Ratchet
D-05 Octane
D-06 Galvatron

Pre-order listings have already been posted at Digital-Toys.com.

Mike also tells us to stay tuned as new pictures and more details will follow shortly.

I really like the darker, more G1 metallic blue they went with, vs. the sky blue of the animation model and Robotmaster versions. I think the colors are pronounced enough to differentiate it from Greenscream.

the pics of mp thindercracker left me thinking i should cancel my preorder... didn't seem to be different enough from greenscream in terms of coloration. will hasbro be producing it?

What, other than the fact that it's a nice clean even blue?

Also, speaking of probable Alternator/Binaltech Megatron Nissan GT-R, yep, I really put high expectation on that. Rather than having some other bots redecoed to be like this......

Ok, I admit TC does look freakin sweat.

Still though, if they were planning a TC from the beginning, then WTF did they make 'Screamer blue?

Toy-wise ::

SS Blue

TC Purple

SW Black

Show-wise, it's gotta be ::

SS Grey

TC Purple

SW Black

So yeah, I don't see much problems with that, IMHO.

And I'm patiently waiting for the G1 repaint, or at least, more show-accurate :animated Screamer repaint, with being more greyish than blue like what we got now, and no stupid hand cannons. But judging from Hasbro's traits, I might as well keep low expectations on "no stupid hand cannons" thingy.

I'm glad that MP Thundercracker is being made. I will buy one. It's ironic that the MP line is the only place that Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker can be bought at normal retail price.

Encore will have all 3 as well, though TC and SW will likely be packaged together as a pair. It still counts as retail price though.

I was going to count those, but I decided not to since they are reissues of G1 toys. I guess Robot Masters and Robot Heroes are the only other toy lines in which all three characters were released.

Armada?

I'd also expect it to happen with Animated.

I'm honestly carious as to what Animated TC's colour layout will be.

there's a picture of it, ya know

RLY? Awesomeness. Link plz?

I still got it..

Top :: Swindle, Jetstorm, Wreckgar.

Middle :: Skywarp, Shockwave, Mixmaster.

Bottom :: Blurr, Jetfire, Thundercracker.

some extrapolation + crappy quick Photoshopping led me to this

MOAR PURPUL!

Second one looks nice on paper, but I think the first one would look hella- :sweet IRL.

Wow, I've never heard of that happening. I've seen prices go up after I've already preordered something, but I've always been grandfathered into the original price. They've never tried to switch it up on me. In fact I once convinced them to lower the price of an order I placed because it had been less expensive the day before.
