Transformers D.O.T.M. – Thundercracker 7/30-8/5

Like I’ve stated in the past,my favoritism towards certain action figures in my collection varies from week to week.There are times where I’ll be  holding an action figure and say to myself “Man,this is one bad a$# figure!”. This past week I’ve been doing that a lot with my Transformers,and right now they stand atop my” favorite action figures right now” list.I’ve already done posts on my DOTM Prime and Bumblebee figures,and this week will be looking at DOTM  Deluxe Class Thundercracker and TF’s Generations  Wheeljack.I’ll be vacationing this week so I’ll try to get the Wheeljack post in on Tuesday before I head out 😉 As far as Thundercracker goes, I’m seriously diggin’ him!The photo of him on the back of the card doesn’t really do the actual figure any justice.I only picked him up because of the Jet mode and how much it reminded me of the G1 version of him I owned as a kid.I didn’t expect to like his robot mode as much as I do now!One of the cool things about these contemporary TF’s is the amount of articulation and pose-ability of them.I was able to get some pretty cool stances out of  Thundercracker  holding his weapons and the menacing look on his robotic chiseled face  is downright spine tingling.There is an anti-heroic presence  about this figure that will have you wanting to take pics of him next to other baddies you may have in your collection.I opted to do a side by side shot with my Resolute Cobra Commander.If you haven’t jumped on the Transformers bandwagon yet i  strongly suggest you do so .The pleasure of looking at these amazingly engineered action figures displayed side by side with other TF’s or any 3 3/4 figures you may have is priceless.They literally stand out and as frustrating as it can be sometimes, transforming these guys will instantly bring you back to your childhood!Enjoy the pics 🙂

 

Transformers Haul

A while back i received a toy package from fellow blogger Jason Vorhees which included a couple of cool Transformers figures,Brimstone and Leo Prime.Since then I’ve been pretty much hooked and recently picked up a DOTM Bumblebee figure which I absolutely love!I had been wanting an Optimus Prime figure as of late but didn’t want to buy the smaller scale and the larger scales were way too pricey.Luckily,while scanning the toy clearance section of a nearby Marshalls, i was able to scoop up a decent sized DOTM  Fireburst Optimus as well as a Generations Wheeljack !Now while I would have preferred the Optimus to be a bit bigger,he still stands taller than my 3 3/4 Joe figures and should look great next to them when i display them side by side.As far as the Wheeljack figure goes,if you recall i had recently returned a TF Prime version of him so i was thrilled to find this one.This is the Wheeljack i know and love from the 80’s cartoon series!The Thundercracker DOTM  fig i picked up at regular price from my local Wal-Mart  and did so more for nostalgia’s sake.I used to own the original G1 version of him as a kid so this one was a must grab.I also needed another Decepticon tp pair up with my Brimstone fig 😉 I’ll be doing separate posts for each of these guys and a couple other 3 3/4  clearance figures i picked up as well in the next couple of days. Enjoy the pics!
