Digital-Toys.com have received some news from Japan of some new toys coming later this year from TakaraTomy.

The next Masterpiece figure has apparently been revealed as MP-07 Thundercracker, due for release in November. Also listed are 2 versions of a new figure, which transforms into a silver or red Nissan GT-R. This will also be on sale from November. Judging by the listing and rumour going around, it seems to be part of the Binaltech line.

Continuing the Henkei line, the following are listed for release in October:

C-09 Lamborghini
C-10 Streak
C-11 Ironhide
C-12 Ratchet
D-05 Octane
D-06 Galvatron

TFAuctions unveils Thundercracker

He’s done it again, this time its a re painted Thundercracker.

Cougars message reads

“The final data you purchased is encypted with this message.  Feels like I had to take on half the Decepticon forces on Earth to get this, but a bot’s gotta get paid.  I know Megatron’s desperate to stop me from sending this, but it’s going to take more than a dirty look to stop me when I get a contract!  This thing looks an awful lot like Thundercracker, but hopefully it’ll put up more of a fight than that half-wit cake-baker.”
