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.

Tell that to the star wars fans who currently have no way to buy these aside from ebay:

This news i making me see that people online are having a very very hard time realizing that the US is not the only country in the world, its pretty crazy. As you stated, and as we know, thundercraker is a TRU exclusive, meaning individual national TRUs are piking him up across the globe (as they did before). But now, its simply that the US doesnt have a TRU chain, so they will have to find some other way (if any, see post above). And people are having a very hard time understanding that if the US doesnt have a TRU, then how can there still be such a thing as a TRU exclusive.

In other Transformers Cyberverse news today, though shifting onto the toys that accompany the animated series for this story, we have the finding of some new stock images for the entire Wave 2 of the Warrior class, which includes Megatron (with Fusion Mace), Acid Storm (with Toxic Slice), and Windblade (with Cyclone Strike), plus Scout class Optimus Prime (with hilarious Ion Burst).

Check out the images mirrored below, thanks to fellow fansite TFW2005's user Nevermore discovery on the back end of Target.com - meaning that no listings are available yet - and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion!

The funniest thing with that scout Optimus is we can recreate this pose with pretty much every Optimus toys ever! :lol:

Also, that Warrior Megatron don't look that bad.

The windblade is another in the category of "Cyberverse with knees" I might pick her up with shockwave.

Scout optimus...I thought the arm mounted cannon was megatrons thing? ;-)

Megatron is not bad at all, at least for the standards of this particular line (that I consider pretty low, BTW... but okay-ish given its target audience).

Also I'm very happy about having Acid Storm getting the spotlight, for once. A shame its paint job isn't more accurate, though.

I think you're underselling her a bit. The only standard articulation she's missing is thigh swivels, she even appears to have waist swivel. Her elbows bend a little funny, but otherwise she's almost on par with the RID version (which was a good figure). She looks like one of the best figures in the line.

I'd rather undersell something then over-sell it :-)

'Tis a shame that Megatron has a wad of chewing gum for a left hand. :P
