Thoughts on MP Thundercracker

Postby FellintoOblivion » Sat Oct 06, 2012 11:59 pm

I was excited to hear that the MP seeker mold had been updated since it's one of the beter molds TFs have ever seen but after having had it for a few hours I must say I'm not that impressed.

I actually didn't mind the hip kibble on Starscream and Skywarp in robot mode but I can see why some didn't like it. The new design leaves the plane mode looking less robust though and it seems like all the pegs and tabs they added to lock the arms in would be much more prone to breakage.

I don't like the new design for the null rays at all. While it's nice you can move it around and pose it more it looks terrible in vehicle mode. You either have the whole connecting rod tucked against the side of the plane or a giant hole in either side of the fuselage where the joint connects. The rays also look different then Starscream's and Skywarp's when they're on the base lined up together which is irksome.

I was really disappointed to see it came with the same directions from the first two as well considering how different the transformation is with all the design changes.

It would also have been nice if they made the front landing gear easier to get out.
Looking for the Megatron gun (or just the stock) that came with 20th anniversary MP Optimus Prime.

I hate the new mold, the back end is block in Jet mode.
iGear did a much better job at removing the hip kibble.

That reminds me, I don't like the extra thrusters or whatever they added to the top of his adjustable rear nozzles.

I like the new mold way better. Hopefully, Takara will produce a Skywarp to go along with the other two new guys.

I love the new mold. The robot mode looks so much better. I can't wait for Takara to release both Skywarp and there version of Thundercracker. Takara costs more, but I think that it is worth it. They are far better quality.
