Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Mindmaster, and Facebook Group Transformers Botposting, we have the very first look at Transformers Studio Series Voyager Class Thundercracker! As we already knew from ToyFair, Thundercracker is a retool and recolor of Transformers: The Last Knight Nitro. As can be seen from the picture below, he's labeled as part of the Dark of the Moon toys. This is somewhat curious: the only Thundercracker toy in that line was a recolor of the same line's Deluxe Class Starscream, and had the usual blue, white, and red deco that Thundercracker toys usually have. Even the first movie's Voyager Class Thundercracker had a similar color scheme. This deco doesn't seem to be drawing from any previous iteration of movieverse Thundercracker, save for the dark blue on the arms and legs (this news crew member thinks it's reminiscent of Reveal the Shield Deep Dive). The box art appears to be a re-use of Nitro's art with Thundercracker's new, very movie-verse head.

EDIT: The same Facebook page has an image of the back of the box and the pictures appear to be taken at an actual Toysrus meaning the toy has already been found at US retail. We are told that the sighting is actually from Escondido, California.

WANT!


Also, that head design is very reminiscent of BW Inferno. Now I need to see if this would make a good repaint into a movie version of him.

Sold. I want that deco more than Nitro who I never found. Wonder if the head is still removable

That made me want Nitro even more. This guy may look nice, but the fact that NZ never showed up in my stores after that one time he did is infuriating.

My thoughts exactly. I like the jet mode, but that’s about it.

....oh. Well that changes things. I liked the gunmetal color on the chest, didnt know about the predominant blue. Thats a little less enticing now. I still like the gunmetal more than NZ's white, but

Until Mindmaster sent the picture of the box, I couldn't see how that was passing as Thundercracker except in name only. But that jet mode is pure traditional Thundercracker deco.

Can someone help me out here? Is it known if his neck and cockpit are still Titan Master compatible? If so i might buy him, but if not then no way. That head is EVIL :twisted: :SICK:

Looks good.

I wonder if you can get a better Thunderwing by mixing parts between Nitro and Thundercracker while using the Toyhax labels.

Same question, mostly. I don't dislike the current head... But... I put Nitro in my CHUG Collection SOLELY because of Titan Master compatibility. If Thundercracker has it, I have to reconsider some things...
