Best looking use of that mold yet, imo...I'm not going to Botcon, nor am I going to pay rediculous amounts of money trying to get this, but if it were on a store shel I'd buy it...(And I didn't buy the two universe repaints of this)

Nice. I kinda figured we'd be seeing this mold again in this set. I was hoping not though.
Still it is a nice colour scheme.

First reaction was "Not this mold AGAIN" but I have to say it looks fantastic! Great paint apps! Hmm this years set is tempting me more and more.

i reli like the look of the figure, i've seen the repaints before this and thought nah
i'm reli glad i'm getting this years set, theres quite alot of bang for my buck, the fig itself reminds me of last years megs, but that probs because of the colour scheme, i'd assume they'd complement each other if displayed together
can't wait to see thunderclash

That's sharp, easily the best of the set.

Wish this had made it to the shelf as opposed to one of the other repaints.
Although, am I alone in thinking he looks like an upgraded Movie Wreckage?

This one actually looks pretty good. Not a big fan of that mold, but I'm digging the color scheme.

I think this is the first set where we're getting both a voyager and an ultra figure.
This set's gonna rule

Before going off on the mold choice, it bears noting that the Micromaster who bears the same name shares a similar mold, so it's not that surprising a choice.

I am a big fan of the BotCon sets.
I really don't care what it'll cost, I'll get it anyway...
But this time, I think, they came up with the worst set of the last 5 years... As usual every set will have fans and antis. Although I am not anti and I will get the set, I am just not a big fan.
Figures that we have seen over and over again and a theme that, imo, does not carry any weight in the mythos at all.
A waste of a very good opportunity, if you ask me...
I know, nobody is asking me...
You won't hear me complain about the size of MP Grimlock...

Very cool, new head too.
Lets hope Thunderclash is the best yet.

I've passed on every version of this mold so far. The first one that I finally think is worth getting is the one figure that I can't get.
I can't begin to describe how badly I think that sucks. The figure is awsome but the situation...damn.

I'm going to hope he'll be some really good mold, with no prior reuses, that's a truck.
I'm pretty sure she'll be female Thunderclash who's a repaint of Energon Arcee though...

I like the mold. I'm loving the color scheme. And I really truly love the new Head sculpt.
This is the best figure of the set. Unless Thunderclash can top it.
He does remind me a bit of the Beastwars Optimus Primal figure. Probably the white with the red joints.
But its still a great figure.

No doubt, but it didn't have to be very good to be better than the others. However, I really do like him.

Unwavering in my decision to have not ordered this set.

One of my favorite molds from the Cybertron line. Great paint scheme. Wish they didn't do Dropshot and Overload on this mold earlier though.

I have to figure Thunderclash as a classics prime repaint.
Pink windows, white and gold body etc etc.
keep my fingers crossed
