Flame Toys has posted up the box artwork for their Furai Model Kit Thundercracker on their Facebook page.
The artwork features Thundercracker flying through the skies in robot mode surrounded by clouds, explosions and other jets in the background. As you should imagine, this is a repaint of Furai Model Starscream, and we hope to see a Skywarp repaint coming soon.
Check out the artwork attached to this post after the jump.
I'm sorry to bump this thread but I have to ask, does anyone know if the Rodimus kit was released in US stores like Hobby Lobby or Barnes and Nobles or is still available online anywhere?
I have a pre-order for Rodimus in at BBTS but it doesn't seem like they are getting him in stock anytime soon and I'm worried I missed out on this kit.
I want to see Three Zero collab with Hasbro and Takara Tomy, and have Kelvin Lau design a Masterpiece style figure of his own design that transforms.
Oops, sorry, seems I wasn't awake yet. I think that would probably not change a thing. Hasbro could hire designers for a line with great detail, similar to Masterpiece, just different aesthetics, but seeing they didn't already do so makes me think it's not what they want to do.
TRANSFORMING, Transformers action figures, that’s what I meant.
They are already able to make licensed transformers action figures. What's your point?
What if Hasbro bought Flame Toys and they are able to make Transforming action figures now?
anyone get the clear prime? im curious as to how he looks with the stickers on.
Yeah it’s kinda been and gone with our reactions. I can see why they made the changes they did, even if it doesn’t work.
I'm probably late to the game a bit with this, but I recently learned that those changes to Windblade were Hasbro's doing. I know people want to blame
other people for them, but the artist's Twitter specifies that "the copyright holder had issues with some parts".
Something about that made me a bit happy? Because I certainly find the new look to be an improvement.
I bought the SDCC bundle from BlueFin and have the Thundercracker and Bumblebee kits available for sale if anyone is interested.
Totally brand new and still in their original shrink wrap. See my sales thread for pictures or send me a PM.
We have very different ideas of what $10 KOs look like. Unless you're talking about the design, but that's a matter of preference.
Still, I'd like to see $10 KOs with sculpts as crisp and sharp as that, with that kind of finish.
That's a matter of the design aesthetic, which obviously Windblade doesn't share.
Hope Windblade isn't that bad.
Wow. Interesting combo!
Dear lord he looks like a 10 dollar knock off. Any HG looks leagues better than it!

The Mad Demobot
Well…at least she still has her curves. Now she's more "aerodynamic"
imho feel like they cowered out a bit after being so close to completion but at least if the artist is happy with the compromise I won't be upset either. I don't see anyone younger than 16 buying these things tho.
I admit mine is just a theory, but those are likely less important as the wings are part of both her bot and her alt.
Changing her shoulders, while annoying for those who like a certain style, would probably be less of a concern when trying to define a look.
Like Prime's chest windows, yet he still has so many variations on literally everything else.
That's one theory and seeing as how like you said Hasbro's really pushing for the Evergreen designs to be basically their definitive designs that may not be far off. All the same I do wish that they'll be able to give you the option to make her look different if you want similar to how Flametoy's Drift from what I've heard has the option to change his look if you want.
Meanwhile Windblade's shoulderplates change with every toy. While I would like more design consistency, I like all those different shoulder designs.
