Masterpiece Thundercracker

My mind is funny. When this guy was released, I naturally couldn't find him at the original $49.99 he was released at. Sometime in October, I finally found him, but his price had jumped to $74.99, a price I thought to be outrageous. The $140 I paid for Masterpiece Starscream? That was reasonable for some reason. Why is it unreasonable for me to pay half that price for a figure that comes with a stand? Is it because Thundercracker isn't a Takara product? Am I a brand snob? I'll be honest, when there's a Hasbro Masterpiece release, I generally don't like the color choices. I was extremely disappointed in the MP Starscream Walmart exclusive a few years ago, and the MP Grimlock and Hot Rod colors weren't great. But Thundercracker? Well, he's just Prime.

I'm not going to go into a lot of detail with this review since he's just a reprint of the awesome new Starscream retool and I'm apparently the last person on Earth to get him. Enjoy!  Next up should be Generations Wheelie and MP Red Alert!

  1. I don't mind the tampographs on the sides, even though some people rage about them. I do love this guy (and the mold!)

    1. I'm not too keen on the tail fin tampos, but I dig the rest of them. They're almost too busy, if that makes any sense.
