This is great news for all UK Transformers fans and collectors alike!
Whilst scouting my local Toys R Us, fresh with the knowledge of a US TRU exclusive of Masterpiece Thundercracker in their systems, I quizzed their very helpful manager Darren on the matter.
I asked if I could place a pre-order for the Transformers Masterpiece Thundercracker which Toys R Us had gained an exclusive release for. He tapped a few buttons, called a colleague and hey presto, there 'Cracker was on the UK systems and available as a pre-order (delayed pick up)!
As you can see from my picture below he is priced at £59.99
but not going to be instore until late August/early September
There is still no confirmation as to which mold will be used for this version.
