Ah, that seeker Thundercracker. He's certainly been at the center of controversy for the past few years. Whether it's been with BotCon '07, Henkei, or Generations, he's made seeker collectors and completionists scratch their heads. In regards to the Animated toy line, Thundercracker's fate is certainly a sad one. Takara never had the intentions of taking the figure under their wing, and Hasbro never pulled the trigger after the figure's production with fellow wave mate Mudbuster Bulkhead.

And here we are today. Likely a holy grail to many, Animated Voyager Thundercracker is only in the hands of the select few. You could be one of the few if you are the winner of this auction for Animated Voyager Thundercracker, from ebay user deceptigar. Happy bidding!

I don't get it why didn't Takara released a version of Thundercracker they did for the other Seekers & they even released the other Molds that we never got in State ex:Blackout so why was Thundercracker single out? :c

Blackout was an original mold that time and development money had been put into but had not been released while Thundercracker was a repaint of a mold already released a few times?

In other words, HasTak wanted some return on the Blackout mold while the Seeker mold had already paid for itself?

Thundercracker could easily break previous auction records, maybe even approach 5 digits.

It's at $510 and the reserve isn't met yet? Wow.

Although I guess it's not that surprising-this is just about as exclusive as a figure can get...

It would be cheaper to get a TFA StarScream and get it professionally painted. Still very tempting tho...

There's really no reason that this figure won't ultimately see a regular release.

If Thundercracker does get released, I'll eat my own intestinal track.

Well, this puts things in perspective: There'll be other Warudaroses on Ebay after the one that got away from me last night, unlike this fella'.

Still, this is tempting me to waste a lot of what little money I have on lotto tickets.

Does anyone else find it hilarious that the higher this thing's price soars, the more appropriate it is for the character's personality?

Why spend that much?! TFsource has him on sale for $13.00

http://tfsource.com/products/view/product_id/1237/

Am I missing something? Is it the same or maybe its the packaging? :???: I got one coming and I didn't a crazy price for him.

I <3 Warudaros. My childhood one is smashed so badly he can't combine anymore.

That's a bit drastic. Don't do that. When I go back to the sunshine state you'll miss out on coffee time discussions of Transformers with me and Flux...because you're breath will be terribly poopy and we won't invite you.

With the popularity of seekers, I think KO toys will jump on this mold sooner or later. It would be great for all of us so we can all have Thundercracker, Slipstream and the Rainmakers in animated form.

The one on TF Source is the Takara Activators Thundercracker.

The figure being bidded on is the unreleased Voyager Starscream repaint. (There was no official Voyager Thundercracker released...this is a prototype/test figure.)

I'll bring Scope, just in case.

I was just thinking how hilarious it would be if this was a sign it will get released eventually. I wonder if the people who pay these ridiculous amounts for figures ever regret it?
