First look at Botcon 2013 Machine Wars Thundercracker

He’s big green motha from outer space and he’s bad

In an ‘announcement’ far less interesting than even the latest Botcon 2013 giftset reveals, we have pretty definite proof that a Machine Wars Thundercracker will be an add-on or the attendee figure for Botcon 2013. The character art was revealed on the embroidered hat for this year’s convention.  Who actually buys that stuff anyway?

Too bad I won’t be there to find out because this year’s Botcon is no longer on my list of “trips that are anywhere near worth the money.”

Flight Dunny chase reveals – It’s Thundercracker and Skywarp

Seeker time!

As it turns out, the chases are indeed Thundercracker and Skywarp.  I was lucky enough to nab a Thundercracker in my 3 pack I got in store this morning at Rotofugi.  I also snagged some photos of the Starscream version with some of his more Transformers brethren.

iGear Masterpiece Thundercracker – dear God, let this madness stop

iGear Thundercracker

Just because the original became $300 doesn't mean you deserve a cheaper one

Annoying. Well, I’m sure there are plenty of whiney “i missed it the first time, why is it so expensive?” bastards that are rejoicing to get a sub-par anime-colored Masterpiece Thundercracker. Enjoy your fakes. In fact, order them here!

Hangin at Botcon 2011

I’m here. I made it this morning.

I was lucky enough to attend the customizing class being held this morning. Apparently things ran more smoothly than ever before today. Wow, it’s hard to believe small children in China churn these figures out en-masse!!!

Anyway, until I get full internet access, this will suffice. For now please, FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER for consistent updates.

Here are some things I can reveal after ‘strategically’ over-hearing some things by Botcon staff in the lobby:

  • Shattered Glass two pack attendee exclusive: Shattered Glass Galvatron + Shattered Glass Thundercracker.  This is the Cybertron Evac and Classics seeker mold.  THIS IS GOING TO BE THE HOT SET!
  • Animated Sideswipe is part of the set.
  • Other options for the custom class figure were the Animated Rodimus & Animated Jazz molds, since they were the only others that were availble to the club to use for this purpose.
  • Rodimus as Sunstreaker was considered for the custom class figure, but ultimately the Arcee mold was chosen due to it’s simplicity.  Rodimus is a very complex mold.
  • “The Stunti-con Job” name for the Botcon 2011 Comic is meant to be a play on “The Italian Job,” a caper / heist movie.

Closer look at Animated Voyager Thundercracker for sale by Deceptigtar

Strike a pose, let's get to it

Deceptigar, who is selling the Animated Voyager Thundercracker on Ebay currently, has supplied me with some awesome pictures of the figure. He does not want to transform it since he is selling it and the dollar value is high. That seeker mold does have some misgivings…

The auction has risen to over $1000 but has stayed at that level for a few days now. With over 100 watchers and 19 bids, this thing might go insane-o in the last hour. Hold onto your butts!

Unreleased Animated Thundercracker for sale on Ebay!

Animated Thundercracker toy unreleased

You're gonna make the old boys blue!

Has Deceptigtar gone absolutely mad? He is selling his almost one-of-a-kind Animated Thundercracker on Ebay! I don’t know what to say, but with Botcon 2011 concentrating on Animated, no one’s collection will be fully complete without this unreleased gem. TakaraTomy didn’t even make their own version of this guy, but they got Blackout!? What gives! Check out the auction and be sure to bite your nails as the price sky-rockets!

Classics Actionmaster Starscream – custom to go with Botcon AM Thundercracker?

Classics Action master Starscream custom

Wings, dear God he actually has WINGS!

Deceptigtar sent me an awesome custom from yahoo Japan today.  It looked so good I almost thought it wasn’t a custom!  It also made me think that this would look super cool next to the supposed Action Master Thundercracker that has been rumored for Botcon 2011!

Enjoy the pics.

Seriously, who thought of this color scheme?

End of The Seeker Wars – Generations 3 Thundercracker

Hasbro Generations Thundercracker

It's going to be a blue St. Patrick's Day

I suppose you all have been waiting long enough and I guess the heathens can now have their Thundercracker too. I rather like the dark blue of the final toy. I thought it was going to be more of an icy hue.

And with that, an era of Transformers has finally ended to let a new one begin. The Great Seeker Wars have finally, truly, been won.

Hasbro Generations 3.0 Thundercracker lives (again) – now with proof!

Generation 1 Thundercracker cartoon

Thundercracker responds just like a thousand other Transfans - horrifying gasp as a valuable piece of himself crumbles to the floor like so many shattered dreams.

FOR REALS THIS TIME!

Who knew that my most embarrassingly falsified post has turned out to be as true as the testimony of OJ Simpson!?  TFW2005.com has reported a preorder on Big Bad Toy Store for Generations 3.0 Thundercracker.

Read it and weep boys.

So does time really heal all wounds?  It’s hard to say, the 2007 Botcon Seeker scars run deep… soooo deep.  I guess it’s time to give up collecting in general, huh guys?  Guys? Hello?  Is anyone there?  Where’d you all go!?!?!?
