    Encore: Ironhide & Ratchet Set of Custom Heads at BBTS

    I just found this in the new preorders. We've seen heads like them, I don't think we've seen these particular ones. $17.99 for the set.

    While it is not news about the busts it is good to see they are finally in stock. I don't know how many time they were delayed. With Skywarp coming out at SDCC the full seeker bust set can now be completed.

    Hmm.... I wonder how hard it would be to repaint the Ratchet one to look like the Marvel G1 and IDW Comic? The black could pose a problem...

    Looking nice, but I'd like to see them on the toys before even thinking to buy these. I'm mainly displaying my G1 in car mode anyway!

    man, I didn't even have to think twice about that one. I think from clicking on this thread title to having them preordered was less than 30 seconds :lol

    Mine are in car mode just b/c I don't have the face stickers for one of them. If I had these I probably would like them even more!

    I'm very interested in seeing them mounted on the figure as well...

    Does "Best Toys" have a website...?


    Edit:...what the heck...just preordered a set...

    No kidding. According to my account page at BBTS, I've had those three on preorder since August 3, 2007... almost a year!

    There's no reason Takara Tomy couldn't have made these as an Encore add-in and charged $10 more. They STILL would have cost less than half of the TFC series toys.
