We recently got our first look at the Toys R Us exclusive Movie Studio Series Thundercracker figure – and he’s already creeping into shops! Sneaking in under everyone’s radar, Thundercracker is the ninth Studio Series release and also a fully badged up exclusive. A remold of Nitro from Transformers The Last Knight, Thundercracker sports a new head inspired by the 2007 Movie Starscream toy that really brings out the whole insectoid head concept that many fans have found fault with in the Movie Decepticon designs down the years. It’s a delightfully viscous looking headscuplt that brings out the menace of this Decepticon.
We’ve got a couple of sightings of this figure already, including in Toys R Us San Diego. Be advised, though – there’s apparently a street date on this one, most likely for April along with the regular Studio Series releases.
In the meantime, enjoy a few in-hand pics care of TFW2005 members ACMagnus and Megasquared!
