follows up his previous Toys"R"Us Masterpiece Thundercracker retail sighting with some nice in-hand images of the figure. As you can see Thundercracker features some interesting homages which include G1 Reflector on each bicep with the words "Say Cheese", a silhouette of of himself holding G1 Soundwave on his shoulder with the word "SONICBOOM" on his tail fins, a reference to Hasbro designer Joe "Bid Daddy" Kyde just under the cockpit canopy, and his Japanese identification number, D-24, on his fuselage. Check him out below.

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!
