As promised The Hasbro Pulse Con 2023 behind the scenes report for Prime Universe Thundertron from Mark Maher @markclonus is here.This Voyager class figure is another from the Prime TV series with a totally new mold. This guy is clearly ready to lead a band of swash bucking robots. He's got the look, with details on the behind the scenes in the making of Thundertron in the full report with images that follow.
Big shout outs to the Hall of Fame champion Ejima san who has been intrical in the success of the Transformers brand, big E is nothing but amazing talent and a vest rocking genius. Also, shouts to @santalux75 who did the original concept art for this maniac. I still remember painting this prototype back in the Prime days and drooling over the concept art!
Lets get into it, pass ye a bottle of ur finest energon goodies matey, cause the different weapon load outs of his Thundersword of Cybertron will shiver ye timbers!!! Not only do you get the cool cyberpeg leg feature but you can also flex the lower jaw of the Liger mouth in both modes.
Crash landing at planet z did ol thunder knucks alot of good in my eyes. We got some serious possibility and just a fierce looking alt mode which will scare any cybertronian off the tidal plank.
I did plan on adding some space barnacles but after they were sculpted they didn’t give the proper vibe, so I put my energon towards some scars and battle damage throughout the sculpt cause this star seeker has seen some serious battles. To note, this scurvy dog has been known to frequent Mac (Thew) Adam’s bar for two tree energon beverages, Ay Aye me laddies, till next we meet
This looks so good. I can't wait to get one. I really hope they do Alpha Trizer and Go Prime too. Maybe even Leo Prime not that he's needed. And looking at this, it really does look more like ThunderHOWL is the main reuse. There's too many things in the design that looks like Thunderhowl for them to just be a coincidence. The shoulder pads and robot mode hands come to mind. The hip armor can be reworked along with the heads. Maybe work a cape in somehow instead of the big hip armor pieces.
Hell, I'll be down for some ZOIDS redecos too. Give me some Metalgarurumon decos and a KendoGarurumon as well as all the Voltron lions. I want an army (pride?) of these.
