    This Guy is Very Fun and Articulated. His Alt Mode and Robot Mode is very Mini Deluxe Ratchet. The Way he Gets his "Gut" is the Angle his front is held up in robot mode is a great touch. Besides the Hand Articulation he has the Same Articulation of Deluxe Ratchet without those Magnets popping up! He has the broken head fin and a real grumpy face in robot mode unlike the sad face in the Deluxe version. His Upper Body and Arms Transform when you hit the back of his roof for the activation transformation. You fold his roof parts of his shoulders back to the side. Then you split the back of the roof to form the front and back of his feet which is a very cool thing in a transformation. He is like the Bumblebee of Wave 2 Activators for he's fun, articulated, and cartoon accurate. He's definitely worth buying!

    My Video Review will be up in a bit but here's pics:

    Looks really nice, and even nicer next to Activators Optimus Prime. I might pick him up to go with my Voyager Bulkhead.

    Looks like a great figure.

    I'd rather get Ironhide made from THAT than Deluxe.

    I gothim a few days ago. Yeah he is awesome for a little guy. The best 2 are Ratchet and Starscream, Bumblebee and Prime are good, Lockdown and Bulky are the worst (bulky is better than Locky)

    Pros:
    * Looks pretty good in either mode despite the simpler design.
    * Paint and face sculpt actually look a little sharper than the deluxe IMO.

    Cons:
    * Transformation is a little less 'automated' than some, requiring a few steps to get to robot mode. (a little more than Starscream or Bumblebee,anyway)

    Just picked him up, and he's really not too bad. Looks good, and definitely solid overall. Worth the $7.
