Just FYI: This version of Thundercracker is an F-15, not an F-22. The Bayverse Thundercracker was an F-22, though.

I'm aware of that, I just wanted to use one of the best lines from the IDWverse Thundercracker. :-P

I get that this won't have distribution as wide as some of their other releases, but even considering importers' markups, this is still RIDICULOUSLY overpriced, just for a change in the plastic color.

Hi, I just wanted to precise something to people who may not know. As TF Source's listing says, anyone buying this from importers is NOT buying the exclusive TTMall release of MP 11T. Instead:

This is the Asian market release of this product
- http://tfsource.com/masterpiece/mp-11t-thundercracker/

There is no given amount for this release but it is not the 2000 limited item that was exclusive at Takaratomy mall. So the price isnt due to exclusivity in this case (unlike Takara Defensor, for instance) but solely due to importing.

I just wanted collectors to know the facts and not to be jipped on the notion of what they are buying.

Fellow Seibertronian Robotmel, found some new in hand images (some definitely seem to come right off the assembly line) of the upcoming MP 11T, Takara's Masterpiece Thundercracker. There are comparisons to the Hasbro version where the different shade of blue is very evident. These pictures come to us from ACtoys.net and weibo.com/lovemomo5288.

Takara MP Thundercracker looks good. It's not nearly as loud, bright, & obnoxious, as he seemed initially, but I really do love my Hasbro TC's darker, metallic shade. The $200.00 price is what makes this easy to pass though. For those who worship cartoon-accuracy, this is the best you're going to get, so enjoy! :D

I definitely worship at that alter. Though I have the Hasbro release from a few years back, this latest Takara release is the DEFINITIVE version in my eyes, even if still not entirely perfect. Why the black nose cone, for example? I find it interesting that each one of the MP-11 classic Seeker trio has something that makes it not quite "cartoon accurate," but among the three, it's a DIFFERENT set of things for each one. MP-11TC has the black nose cone, as already said. MP-11SW has some embellishments in the form of pin striping on his "pectorals" as well as his wrists and shoulders. MP-11 has those black tabs on the top of the fuselage in alt mode. Weird.

By the way, I've got a question for anyone who's got expert knowledge of the various releases of MP-11 Starscream. What color plastic is the nose cone cast in? The TFwiki page claims that the original Japanese and Asian releases had a blue plastic nose cone painted over in gray to match the rest of fuselage and primary wings. Then, a 2013 Chinese release came along with a nose cone cast in the same or a similar gray plastic to the fuselage, etc. It also featured gray (either painted or cast in gray plastic) tabs to replace the black ones on the top of the jet mode for the original release. My MP-11, however, has the black tabs on the top of the jet AND a gray plastic nose cone. I'm certain it's not painted gray, as you can see light through the plastic from inside to out. So, is something off with the wiki description of these variations? Which release do I likely have?

The best person to answer this would be Powered Convoy/Randy, as he's a major Seeker expert.

I guess no one ever noticed that this bat-winged, pot bellied POS doesn't look much like the animation model. The classics seeker mold is the only masterpiece I see here.

WTF is up with people wanting and/or expecting "baby blue" as if it was in any way accurate to either the show or the original toy.
