MP-11T Masterpiece Thundercracker (2012 TRU Exclusive)

P1170310The third and last Seeker I ever bothered with (Acid Storm who? Sun Storm what?) happens to come as a repaint of the latest Starscream mold. In keeping with tradition, like my previous Starscream and Skywarp, this Thundercracker is an American-exclusive release with strong callbacks to the original G1 cartoons.

MP-10 Optimus Prime (2012 TRU Release)

P1170168

Finally getting around to the big O himself – I remember coveting this release for the longest time before finally snagging a used version on eBay as part of a bundle set.

MP-20 Masterpiece Wheeljack

P1170051The Autobot’s notorious crackpot inventor and father of the Dinobots, Wheeljack finally gets his due Masterpiece treatment as another to join the ranks of the Autobot cars.

Release info for Wheeljack was released alongside Bumblebee, if I recall correctly. People had been betting on a Masterpiece Bee since Starscream, but I’m sure Jackie here was much more of a surprise.

Sideshow Collectables Striker Eureka Statue

P1150968

Australia’s pride and joy in 2025 – the Mark V Striker Eureka finally received its official statue debut from Sideshow Collectables over a year after Pacific Rim saw release.

I remember pre-ordering this piece almost a year before it was actually scheduled to come out from Sideshow’s official website. It felt good, buying officially from Sideshow and all, though it was no small price.
