THUNDERCRACKER

Series: G1 Reissues Commemorative Series
Allegiance: Decepticon
Categories: Decepticon Jet
Year: 2003


The deadliest weapon is terror!
Thundercracker is contemptuous of anything that cannot fly. Not totally convinced of the Decepticons' cause, but they've persuaded him to continue battling the Autobots. Flies at speeds up to 1500 mph. Produces controlled, deafening sonic booms - can be heard for 200 miles. Equipped with powerful drone rockets and incendiary guns. Doubts about the cause sometimes impedes his effectiveness.



Remarks: Thundercracker is a repaint of Starscream, so you can read the full review of the figure there. Just some general remarks here. This Thundercracker is a re-issue from 2003, not the original, but the only differences are the packaging and the fact that Thundercracker's laser guns are a bit larger here to conform to present-day toy safety laws.

The colour scheme on Thundercracker is a little darker than it was in the cartoon, but apart from that he looks very much like his animated counterpart. Since Thundercracker was also one of the few Decepticons from the early series that ever got something in the way of a personality (his rivalry with Starscream and the occassional doubt about the Decepticon cause) he is definitely a must-have for any collector. And he comes with a kick-ass box with Dreamwave art in front. What more do you want?

Rating: B
