What better way to down shift from the Seeker revealing madness that was this last week than to sit down and appreciate one of the original three. This is one of the nicest regular retail versions of Thundercracker to come around in quite a while, so if you're a fan of the dog owning, script writing, charming and witty bot in blue who found more beauty in humanity than any other bot in the IDW-verse, then you should enjoy this review.
"Thundercracker is a repaint with a new head of Starscream, that was repainted and released earlier this month as Red Wing. Other than the new head Thundercracker sports the same battle damage pattern as the other two released seekers but a classic blue paint scheme indicative of the G1 character. Since Thundercracker is a mainline release it's a tad easier to recommend it over Red Wing, who just became a Target Redcard exclusive."
And if you're hungry for even more then visit Soundwave 8084's review which has been up for a few weeks now. Both are great rundowns of this G1 original.
And as always after the peruse share your views with the Seibertron crew in the forums, and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest in Transformers news!

A comparison between G1 Red Alert's gun and SIEGE Red Alert's gun, showing that there are indeed corresponding details. Not as strong as with Prowl's gun but still.

I'm a portuguese Transformers G1 fan. I have some toys from childhood but I want to start a new one.
I'm looking forward for this WFC Siege collection, particularly the voyager class.
I have some doubts, and you guys might help.
1- Is the voyager class a good bet? Short and long term?
2- Should I wait for american limited editions (like walmart Optimus and Megatron) or these voyager "rusty painted" transformers are ok too?
3- Are the sizes compatible with deluxe and titan class? (just saw an Ultra Magnus Leader class and look a bit bigger than it should, near to Prime)
Thank you!! G1 for Life

Just preordered mine before I saw your post and effectively, we only have to pay the TPS. No Quebec tax at all. So instead of paying 4.50$ in taxes, it was only 2$.
Too bad about the 10$ of shipping but eh...
Regrettably, all their regular TF are more expensive for reasons. Still a nice... Source... in finding 3P and such.

This figure will be coming to Walgreens in the US in the 2019 holiday season and as for Canada, EB games are currently taking in store preorders. This toy is already out in Hong Kong, exclusively at Toysrus.

As for med bay mode, I would probably just open up the back panels of van mode (the ones that reveal the additional ports) and plug in the weapons onto the arms.

Lots of other parts on Ratchet are different as well.Nathaniel Prime wrote:Haven't noticed that Ratchet had a different front end from Ironhide before.

Among the things discussed...
* Siege has been so popular that Hasbro added a Wave 5 to the line....
Yes but the Generations lines from past years have been popular as well. I thought the issue was that stores weren't ordering later waves because they thought it was the *same product*, thus the need to label change every 12 months instead of 18...??
John Warden interview wrote:* The launch gantry is indeed compatible with the likes of Omega Supreme, Fortress Maximus, and Titans Return Soundwave.
Nice, looks like I'll be getting my first new leader figure in two years. , and the Cybertron City Project Grows.

While he is essentially the same mold as Ironhide, with different sculpted details, the designers went an extra step with Ratchet and showed that he can have a third mode. This third mode is a repair station, to homage his G1 sled. His new weapon becomes a surgical tool and attaches itself onto this repair station where you can place a bot who is in dire need of help. Well either that or he is operating on himself, you choose. The images come from Autobase Aichi.

So stoked for this release thanks William!!

I tell my wife all about it and the camera mode and everything. It's when she says stuff like "Sooo, you realize you have to get two more of them now..." that I just want to remarry her all over again.
She's such an adorable enabler.
