Transformers Generations Thundercracker

At the very same Wal-mart that I found Wheeljack, I also found this awesome Decepticon(during the same visit).

 

 Thundercracker, along with Starscream and Skywarp, were the original 3 seeker jets in the original Transformers series.  I was surprised to see the 2 figures I wanted in this wave at the same store at the same time.  I wasted no time in grabbing both of them.  It’s hard to beleive that there were actually 3 of these on the pegs!  First, we’ll take a look at the seeker mode.

I think my fascination with this line has to do with how much they are a tribute to the G1 Transformers.  The colors really pop here.  I find it amazing that the figures look this good, but are still able to evoke the nostalgia of the originals.  This was another figure I never owned as a kid(back then, I probably would’ve preferred Starscream), and it seems the ones I never owned are the ones that appeal to me the most.  If they release a Starscream and/or a Skywarp, I would get both, even though they would just be repaints.  And of course, he looks great in robot mode as well.

I have to say that I am very pleased with this purchase.  I can only hope that Hasbro continues to make these great figures(in my opinion, the movie ones just don’t have the “wow” factor).  This definitely gets my reccomendation, and another 10 out 0f 10.

I will be leaving for vacation tomorrow afternoon and won’t be back until Tuesday.  So I want to take this time to say have a happy and safe Independence Day, and remember all those who have fought and those who have sacrificed themselves to keep our wonderful nation free.
