Combiner Wars Leader Class Thundercracker is an extensive retooling of the Jetfire mold (you can see the original here, in our galleries) and is currently available in Asia, soon to be released in the States this Summer season. Until then, this in hand gallery should help tide you over while you wait, albeit impatiently.

Thanks to fellow fan, Tagoal, we have a few images mirrored here, below, and you can click on any of the images to see the full listing of images of this figure and the comparison to Jetfire. One thing you might notice is that they retained the clips for the Jetfire fastpack, odd isn't it? (Hopefully it'll lead to a cool G2 redeco with soundbox attachment. Well, one can dream, can't they?)

If I ever see that Leader TC on clearance, he's so going into my Sealed TC collection!

I know this is a page back, but I just wanted to say, this looks FREAKIN COOL. I dig that look over the more "classic" cannon look.

Aww darn, I've seen so many pictures of this, but now compared to Jetfire, I'm sad to realize that I don't get the 'fast pack' booster rockets. I just never realized they weren't included until I saw these shots. :-( #-o

Dang...that will be one bueatiful Starscream....but I wish these guys were voyager sized. Starscream towering over Prowl, Prime and Windblade will bother me.

Yeah, I just noticed that too! Perhaps a 3rd party company might make something to fit in those ports.

Damn, it's the fake cockpit from hell !

With Jetfire you can give it a free pass since it's supposed to be Skyfire in robot mode. But putting that lazy gimmick on seekers is an insult to the characters.

Meh, everybots do it. So, why the drama?
Still, I would have prefered a clear fake cockpit like Jetfire's instead of just a painted one.

I'll admit it bugs me to. That sort of thing bugged me all the way back on Powermaster Optimus, and I was 9 when that came out.

I really don't like fake parts. I'm willing to look past it here because A) Thundercracker is one of my favorite Transformer characters and B) I love the Leader Jetfire mold, but it does bother me that they couldn't do a Leader class toy with the actual cockpit for a chest.

Yeah, I know exactly what you all mean. I too was bugged with PM Optimus as a kid.

But, then, I do admit that I'm weird... 8-}

Earlier today, Got my Combiners Wars Leader class megatron toy in the mail. Think it's a nice toy. Plan to buy CW G1 Megatron also. But I need to find in stock first.

IDW Transformers artist Andrew Griffith, regular on current The Transformers ongoing title, has updated his Tumblr with some concept work for the upcoming Generations Combiner Wars Leader Class Ultra Magnus (with Minimus Ambus) figure - specifically, the cockpit design, both inside and outside, and the interaction with Minimus in vehicle mode. Check it out below!

So a while back I got to work a bit on an upcoming Leader class toy version of Ultra Magnus from IDW’s More Than Meets The Eye. Since the toy has been revealed, I got permission from Hasbro to show off some of my art for it.

Just to be clear, the overall design of the toy was already done, based heavily on Nick Roche’s design for the book. What I was asked to do was to sketch up what the interior cockpit could look like within the confines of the space they had available for it. I worked with Hasbro to develop it, and they sent my art along to Takara-Tomy to use for the sculpt for the final product.

The cockpit for Minimus Ambus inside Ultra Magnus functions a bit different than James Roberts and Alex Milne worked out for MTMTE, but personally I think it’s pretty cool that Hasbro took inspiration from the comics and even went to the trouble of using the concept of Minimus “driving” Ambus at all to be pretty darn cool.

I was thrilled to work on this particular project.

Rad. I can't remember from all the toy fair pix so I wonder if those door panel monitors/consoles will be featured in the interior of the toy. Wouldn't that be cool?! Keep more of these concepts comin!

There's a little readout that says "CAST IN THE NAME OF PRIMUS, YEE NOT GUILTY".

I picked him up on sale recently too (I thought I posted a pic here, but it either got lost in the shuffle or I didn't hit "Submit"). The color scheme is really growing on me. The head sculpt is nice too, but I wish the colors were more toy/cartoon accurate.
