Courtesy of Hasbro designer Mark “Marklonus” Maher , via his Instagram account, we can share for you our first in-hand images of the new Transformers Legacy United Voyager Thundertron.
We have clear shots in robot mode showing off Thundertron’s poseability and weapons as well as beast mode images. A very interesting update of the original Thundertron mold from 2012. As usual, Mark has also shared information about the creative process of this new figure.
See the images and read Mark’s comments after the jump, then join to the ongoing discussion on the 2005 Boards!
Aaaarrrrgggghhh me matees, ya be needin to add me Legacy United Voyager class Thundertron ta yer collection! As my 🧠 surfs the galaxies and universes of the 40 year history of Transformers, I could think of no design better suited for @bmacatron84 ‘s needs for a space pirate, or should me say Star Raider! Arrgh!
Big shout outs to the Hall of Fame champion Ejima san who has been intrical in the success of the Transformers brand, big E is nothing but amazing talent and a vest rocking genius. Also, shouts to @santalux75 who did the original concept art for this maniac. I still remember painting this prototype back in the Prime days and drooling over the concept art! 🤤
Lets get into it, pass ye a bottle of ur finest energon goodies matey, cause the different weapon load outs of his Thundersword of Cybertron will shiver ye timbers!!! Not only do you get the cool cyberpeg leg feature but you can also flex the lower jaw of the Liger mouth in both modes.
Crash landing at planet z did ol thunder knucks alot of good in my eyes. We got some serious possibility and just a fierce looking alt mode which will scare any cybertronian off the tidal plank. 😜
I did plan on adding some space barnacles but after they were sculpted they didn’t give the proper vibe, so I put my energon towards some scars and battle damage throughout the sculpt cause this star seeker has seen some serious battles. To note, this scurvy dog has been known to frequent Mac (Thew) Adam’s bar for two tree energon beverages, Ay Aye me laddies, till next we meet! 🏴☠️ ☠️
