    Hey! I just thought of something! What if Arcee will get released with Cybertron Deluxe Ratchet in a box set/two pack. Think about it! Arcee and Cybertron mode Ratchet through out the series were all ways shown together in one way or another and both of there toy images came out around the same time!

    Maybe exclusive? Plus these were the only "New Character Molds" we have seen (I'm not including Hydrodive BB or Repaints). What do yo guys think???

    I think that sounds like an awesome idea. Wonder what the set will be called...

    that's an excellent idea. And it sounds reasonable, really.

    Even if they charge full price (instead of cutting a few bucks off), it's still worth it to get two excellent molds.

    I'd take the body of Ratchet, and buy an Ironhide head from one of the folks in Radicons. A poster posted a thread about a month and a half ago..or so.. and showed off the final head design. Was taking offers for heads, I believe.

    Buy one of those, slap it on Cybertron Ratchet, paint him up a bit, and you have Cybertron Ironhide, Earth Ratchet, and Arcee. You could technically complete your entire Elite Guard set if you buy the casted head. (I'll have to scour the boards for that link...)

    Sounds cool, but i wouldn't waste the time or money because we know hasbro and they love repaints! i put money on it we will get a animated cybertron mode Ironhide sooner or later.

    "Code Omega" would be a good pack name.

    I'm not for it. If they end up releasing the Cyb Ratchet toy, I'll be waiting for the Ironhide variant. After that, I wouldn't want to buy a two-pack for a mold I already have. I'd rather buy them all separate so I don't have to deal with re-selling ratchet.

    I'd much prefer them to put out the full wave. Hot Rod and Arcee are the ones I want most out of them tho, so if there was a 2-pack I'd prefer them to be in it

    Eh... what's the deal with "#-packs"? It's kinda cool, but would it really make much a difference how they're pacakged as long as they get released?

    If it's cheaper sure that's cool. And if there's a comic, that's cool too. But if that's what makes it better wouldn't it be even better if they're released individually, each with a new comic and cost just $5?

    That might be an unlikely scenario, but probably so too is a discounted 2-pack with or without a comic.

    Like I remember seeing other threads way back that people wanted a 5-pack reissue of the Dinobots. Ok, fine, but wouldn't 5 separate reissues of the Dinobots be just as good? And better for people that want some and not the whole set?

    So say all other things being equal(price, comics/other bonuses, availability, etc.) what would make this 2-pack better than 2 individual items?

    That is a great idea because if you look at Ratchet he is sort of like a younger Ratchet because he has the full head crest. Throw in a Lockdown, a comic and a DVD with "Thrill of the Hunt" on it and the set is mine.

    I'm more interested in Rodimus, Blackout, and Wingblade Optimus. Although, I still want Arcee and Cybertron Mode Ratchet if he comes with more show accurate magnets and EMP blaster.

    Great idea!!
    I do think these figs will see individual release.
    Probably before end of summer.

    I'd rather see a constructicon pack.
    Those guys need to be released,
    one way or another.
    Devastator or no devastator.
    Movie or no movie.
