You mean Megatron? But that canon of his is like permanently attached to his arm housing. It would look derpy if you add another "fusion" canon" accessory.

I think the threads are getting crossed and they were talking about the Dead End post.

Thought Megatron got a great Leader class toy for the 2009 Animated toy line.

I think that instead of Leader class Thundercracker why not Decepticon Skyfall he has a close resemblance to G1 Skyfire/Jetfire

Because Thundercracker is important right now.

I don't see why he was never really important I can understand the legends version but to waste money on him when it could go to something better :grin: =;

You are one perceptive guy Cobotron. I didnt notice until you pointed it out where the set came from (and only the fact that it was a pizza shop gave it away for me).

He's been important in the comics since 2009, save for the years when the story shifted him out of the picture for a while in 2012-2014, but now he's back in prominent form. The comics made him into a Somebody, he deserves his Leader figure.

In fact, he deserves it more than anyone else since that particular Seeker body the toy's made into has been his and his alone for years, with Starscream and Skywarp wearing other different kinds.

I have the comic of the pic that you posted I think it's Transformers Bumblebee :-? , I think thats somewhere at the time that Dreamwave died out and about 3 or 4 years later IDW took the Transformer comic license and started making the stories different, the solo stories did help the characters, but I do not think he deserves the Leader class Skyfire/Jetfire :saint: , no prob on the legends version :grin:

IDW's comics have nothing to do with Dreamwave's.

IDW made Thundercracker into a wonderful character from 2009-2012, and now he's returned to full frontal prominence in the comics ever since April 2014. The Leader class toy is modeled after his body. Not Starscream's, not Skywarp's, but Thundercracker's body. Starscream always gets new toys and now it time for the really good character who's time in the spotlight is right now to get his due reward.

Besides, Starscream's already getting another Masterpiece figure. You can't get much better than that.

sorry for the double message and the Dreamwave what I wanted to get through to you is that after Dreamwave died out around 2005-2006 give or take a year IDW took the license and made mini-series and solo stories to better the characters of Transformers. I don't know about Thundercrackers body being modeled after Skyfire/Jetfire Leaders class 1st , looks more like the legends figure. The other seekers I wish were used better. I would like to add you as a friend and I have to go maybe chat with you later. :grin:

Sabrblade, you brought up an interesting point there...was a thundercracker leader always on the cards and they just used jetfire to sell the mold (not like it hasn't happened before on this line and others)

As for the other seekers prime ghost, starscream is in charge of cybertron now (hard to get more important than that), skywarp though, he's currently fused with the Decepticons ships hull, giving the cons their own teleport

I love Dead End as a character, and here he looks great!
Nothing like depressed Transformers.

Fellow Seibertronian Arctorro has spotted another batch of Generations Transformers Combiner Wars images over at TFND.net, as Genetic concludes the Stunticon team with the last wave 2 deluxe figure: Wildrider Offroad! Check out the mirrored pictures below, as we expected a full Menasor to appear soon, too..

Looks great! And kind of like a psychopath.
Which Wildrider was right?

Not a bad figure but i prefer to skip him and get a G1 limb bot instead. I don't like the trend of these figures. I prefer figures with a handgun that can store inside or under the altmode. These axes, pipes and exhaust melee weapons do nothing for me.

Offroad looks awesome! He may not be a classic character but he looks the part. I love the colour scheme.
