Honestly I had considered getting this Ultra Class Shadow Striker because the Decepticons can always use more female Cons added to their ranks. Unfortunately she's apparently sporting her "battle mask" as her face isn't like her face on the packaging. But not only that, no knee and/or elbow articulation. I realize this line is geared more for younger fans, hence the lack of articulation in all of the figures, but a bit of knee/elbow articulation could've really helped this figure, especially considering its size.

I guess I'll have to hunt down a Prime Vehicon and give it a new head sculpt and a few paint apps to enlist as my CHUG Deluxe Shadow Striker.

***Update: I just purchased a NEW Prime Deluxe Vehicon online on ebay for $15.00 + $8.00 shipping. Not a bad deal considering. Now to go through all the Titans Return Titan Masters faces to see which one I can alter just enough to make it look as close to Cyberverse 2018 Shadow Striker's face. Then I'll soon have my very own fully articulated Deluxe Class Shadow Striker to add to the Decepticon ranks of my CHUG collection.

You really gotta feel bad for this guy. He just spent over 59 dollars in Cyberverse toys, and guess what? They all suck. Why am I not suprised? I really hope this line gets better. Kids deserve better.

hmmm, the Windblades actually fared better than the seekers.. and the warrior one actually doesn't look too shabby (in the context of this line) and i even considering buying the scout one, granted, gonna need a lot of black paint to add details.

Hm, I still might get that Windblade, to be honest. But it looks like I should be good to skip this line. Other than the Ultra class Shockwave too!

Really depends on how many views he gets. To just make back what he spent would take about 59k views, roughly.

Surprisingly, Windblade remain Windblade. Right to her transformation. It may be the only "deluxe" I ever get from this line. But only on sale.

To bad Shadow Striker doesn't have her mouth which would make her more feminine.
I like Windblade's face, looks younger and a bit chubby.

Still, not very good Transformers. I really hope Shadow Striker will get a Warrior class toy with mouth. And I hope Slipstream gets a Warrior version.

So far I love Warrior Shockwave, and he'll also get a Ultra to! Hope that will be more like Grimlock with some okay articulation.

I love Ultimate Megatron, like Ultimate Optimus and that's about it.
Starscream is okayish, I like the visual style better than RID's Starscream.
To bad the legs are so inartculate and no paint apps there. That's weak of Hasbro.

Just get me all the Seekers in Warrior size including Slipstream and get me an okay Warrior Shadow Striker and I won't complain about this line.

Does anyone remember War For Cybertron Slipstream?
Everybody seems to reference Animated Slipstream.

We saw an upcoming Cyberverse Thundercracker a little while ago. It was found on Hong Kong's Toysrus website. A few presumed it to be an exclusive item, and it turns out it is. A full case of this single item was found at a Toysrus in Singapore. We know it is an exclusive since it has an "imported by TRU" sticker in the back which, in Singapore, is used for their exclusives.

This keeps an odd tradition of Thundercracker toys being exclusives, which we previously saw in the Studio Series line from Hasbro and in the Arms Micron line from Takara.

This also continues the trend of Toysrus hosting exclusives toys from Transformers cartoon shows, which they did with RID, and since there are no Toysrus stores in the US it is unknown how that toys will be made available in that country. While it is not the case yet for Transformers, there have been a few Hasbro exclusives for the Star Wars line that have only been made available at Toysrus stores elsewhere in the world with no distribution channel in the US.

If you find it in any store, let us know. This particular sighting was found by Singapore-based TFW2005 user lake88.

Interesting :-? Not that I want Thundercracker, his lack of knees really kills it for me, but would HasTak really keep this one from all areas where Tru died?

Probably not. Thundercracker more than likely was meant as an exclusive, but the store used depends on area. In other words, if an international chain has no presence in a given country, the exclusive is passed on to a chain that does. I could easily see Target snatching this up.

I'm still confused about this show. It looks obviously to be catering to children, but is this the only show that will running? Transformers Prime was amazing. I'm ready for another mature-mood TF series.

The Prime Wars cartoons were supposed to be more mature...you're mileage may vary in how well it worked.

Thundercracker is a TRU exclusive. wow. You were right Chuck, but that kinda stinks for those who want the Cracker in places that aren't Canada and some other countries

There is no doubt in my mind that Hasbro will find a way to make TC available for those who don't have a TRU by them anymore.
