Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999 is back with another Transformers Construct-Bots review. This time around he gives us a look at Thundercracker. Check out the video review embedded below.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:By now most people who are interested know the score with Constructbots; segmented skeletons that feature interchangeable armor parts. They are all the same size and Transform the same way. With that said Thundercracker is a unique take on the classic character at a price point I can recommend.

This one looks pretty nice! I only have Wave right now, but the price on this one's pretty good! I think it'll look great with the rest of my Thundercrackers.

I think TC and SW will be it with the Construct-Bots for me. Hound looks like he got drop as a baby, and I don't want to get that weird looking Megs with that Prime. :roll:

I can really only recommend these on looks alone since everything else (size, transformation) is the same. FYI Prime is part of the same wave as Thundercracker as an Elite class figure.

Yeah, after I made the post I looked into it, but I don't think I'll get prime.

I was disappointed in the price of Soundwave, for 15 bucks, all I did was take off his kibble, have loads of fun with the robot without it, and ended up making my own Cassette mode out of it. Snapped a picture of it on the computer desk a few weeks back. Without all the junk, and for a $10 pricepoint instead of 15, any TF Fan would be interested.

That's really my one big issue with these figures, you don't get more figure for your dollar but you get more crap. I have Prime coming on Thursday because he seems to come with some additional parts that make a more complete (closed) truck mode. I'm curious about that Predaking because I'll be disappointed if it's the same size as Starscream and the rest.
