From Hong Kong and their branch of Toys R Us, one of the few still resisting to stay open, we have news of another warrior class figure from the currently releasing Transformers: Cyberverse toyline - which will accompany the new animated series due this fall in the US - and it's another of the seeker team: Thundercracker!

The toy can be found on the TRU site here, currently listed for HK$169.90 (approx USD 21 at the time of writing), and sporting a whole lotta blue paint all over and the Action Attacker gimmick Lightning Slash. Check it out below!

Thundercracker and the evil Decepticon Seeker jets soar through the sky launching attacks on Autobots.

Convert and attack with Transformers Cyberverse Action Attackers!Change figure from vehicle to robot mode in 7 steps. The last step of conversion automatically activates Thundercracker figure's signature Lightning Slash Action Attack move! Once converted, attack move can be repeated through easy reactivation steps.

Look for other Action Attackers figures, each sold separately, to discover the signature attack moves of favorite Cyberverse characters!

That deco doesn't look too bad, at least not to my eyes. Just wish he knees though.

Whelp, guess I'll begrudgingly "good enough" finish my RiD2015 Seekers after all.

I have been eyeballing Starscream at Target and this give me a reason to check out the mold.

I don't know why but this line confuses me. Almost bought a legion class figure until I figured out they were the ones that don't fully transform. WTH?

The warriors look pretty good. Is Shockwave the one everyone's talking about? Almost bought him, hesitated and he was the only one gone the next day.

Yes, shockwave is the one people find serviceable and the only one selling out in stores.

There isn't any Legion class with this line, what you saw and thankfully avoided was the scouts. Also no surprise there with Shockwave, I think everyone knows now that he's the best in the line.

Aw, I was hoping that Hasbro would use the RID 2015 seeker mold :-(

To do that they would have to retool it enough to do the attack gimmick ;-)

Ah, explains that. He did look super cool with his "angry eye". Not really filling the bot on his back walker tank though.

Tomatoes, potahtoes - same thing.

Oh that's right, this line has that spring loaded action figure thing. And all I want is a complete set of *insert universe here* Seekers. Screamer does look cool and if there is any attack gimmick it doesn't seem to compromise the figures, at least at a glance.

Everything I saw looked pretty nice with nice sculpting and good paint apps. IIRC, they are a few cyberbucks less than the mainline figures. I'll be cherry picking from the line for sure, you know if PotP and the special editions stop sucking my wallet dry.

Last complete set of seekers we got was the leaders and legends wasn't it? Hopefully though Siege will give us some voyager sized ones ;-)

Supposedly that's what we're getting, but they're likely tetra jets like from the cartoon if you're OK with that.

I'll take Seekers in any form they give me. Just don't cock tease me with 2 out of 3 :-x

Coneheads would just be gravy on that delicious WfC mashed potatoes.

You know the irony? All of Shockwave's articulation is a happy accident since the spider tank mode requires all limbs to be able to bend. The rest has barely past the bare minimum for transformation, and in Starscream's case, the legs are a solid chunk for stability when using the gimmick I'm guessing.

Kinda bummed, TC is my favorite seeker, and that mold just doesn't seem very good. The box art is pretty nice too

This desperately needs more red/black to break up that huge blob of blue. :SICK:

Meh, i really had high hopes for this line but sadly it doesnt do it for me i dont understand why they cant just have the same quality figs that TF PRIME had even Animated, it was cartoony like cyberverse but the toys were cool now we have this, i certainly hope the show doesnt suck as much as the toys :(

Have a video review of Ultra Class Starscream have been featured in this thread yet?
Just in case not, here it is:



Unless the thing is on clearance, I will never buy. Once again, it's just a bot with a jetpack.
At least, Grimlock have something original going on.
