Thundercracker coverts from a complex Cybertronian fighter to an extensively articulation robot mode equipped with a pair of triple-barreled assault cannons which can be combined to form a weapon comparable to the Neutron Assault Rifle from Fall of Cybertron. Thundercracker is one of the warriors comprising Megatron’s elite inner circle. His profile suggests a nagging reticence in regards to the validity of the Decepticon cause, although generally this characteristic translates as gruff indifference. Thundercracker is known for his contemptuousness of anything lacking flight capability. He is capable of achieving a flight speed of 1500 mph, and produces controlled sonic booms that can be heard for 200 miles. Like his longtime comrade, Skywarp, Thundercracker resents the very existence of Air Commander Starscream.
