Transformer of the Day for July 27, 2009


-Faction: Decepticon
Armada-Energon-Cyberton (2002-2006)
-Function: Surveillance
“To Hide is to Have the Element of Surprise”
-Notable Toy: Bonus Edition (Takara, 1989)

Notes: What was interesting with Cybertron Thundercracker Starscream was not the use of the name but the form his toy took. For one shining moment, he was more than simply a repaint of . He was his own toy, even if his toy version came with a gun for a hand. Of course his brother Skywarp was not so lucky. If you are going to grab him, might as well get the boxed version with Downshift minicon.

  1. I’ve actually got a Cybertron two-pack with Thundercracker and Crosswise. I think it was a Target exclusive in the US. And I managed to get mine at a bit of a markdown. :)

    I’ve yet to quite understand the deal with bonus tins.
