Takara will follow up with their Alternity toyline by releasing the line's third seeker, Thundercracker. A repaint using the Skywarp mold, the figure features a metallic blue colorscheme. Amazon.co.jp hooks us up with a product page, and that also means official images. Check them out below!

Aren't these still just photoshops of Skywarp?

I love this mold. Bought Skywarp at Botcon. Need to get Starscream and Thundercracker now.

Yep, have Skywarp as my desktop wallpaper and the poses match.

I have a question to those who own this mold: How big is this guy compared to the Classics/Henkei Deluxe figures?

I don't own one, but I got to handle one at Botcon and to be honest, I found him very detailed and very disappointing.

If you own Alternator Battle Ravage, I think that's a very good comparison. If you're looking for a snazzy Alternity figure, go with Red Convoy or Blue Megatron, both are striking and good figures.

The seeker mold is fiddly and kind of "not-fun". For what that's worth.

I have Skywarp and Generations Thrust on my desk here. The tops of Thrust's air intakes are just over Skywarps chest shield - almost level to Skywarp's eyes/nose. So with Skywarps intakes, he's about an inch taller.

Yeah, to be honest I'm not impressed with these representing the Seekers. However, the only reason I wanted to know if they were deluxe size is mainly to see if I could replace the head with Generations Blurr and just call it that :D As off topic as this may get, I'm not too happy with Generations Blurr being a repaint of Drift's mold. It's a great mold but I just don't see Blurr in it. I'll have to do more research on this Alternity mold before I purchase it for my kitbash reasons though. Thanks for all of the feedback guys, I really appreciate it!

@Forgotten, Yes it really does. Thank you for providing a comparision pic :D

I must admit I'm a Thundercracker whore. Going as far as buying the Cybertron Thundercracker mold which is complete trash.

But these Alternity Orochi cars just don't do it for me. I think I'm going to skip this one. I'll save those 50 bucks to pay for my Piranacon set.

I think it should be pointed out that, in these Alternity bodies, Starscream, Skywarp, and Thundercracker are no longer called "Seekers". In these forms, they are known as the "Questors". ;)

They were never called Seekers in Japanese fiction to begin with, just generically "Jetron" :P
