Just got these from my supplier's latest pre-order. Anyone got em even larger?
Those look awesome!!!!
Yea, Digital Toys has that image of Ratchet on their site.
I think those might be Hasbro stock photos. Hasbro used the same pictures of Ironhide on their site after BotCon, as is that mistransformed pic of Galvatron from Toyfair.
is that a remolded head on ratchet, i cant seem to tell with my pc screen. the pose looks awsome
Yes it is.
Will be picking this one up I think.
Well done Hasbro, a new head and a light bar. Enough reason to buy it for me.
That is exactly what I thought as well
Does that mean something is wrong with us?
Haven't heard much from Hasbro on Rachet's release in the states, have we? I would assume he isn't going to be a Japaneese exclusive.. that would be silly.
Awesome... Ratchet's head is spot-on G1. Finally I can cross out Botcon Ratchet from my 'to get' list...
I wonder, since Classics Ironhide's weapon will be a dual-function chaingun/axe, will Ratchet get a remolded weapon too? His cryo spray/laser scapels would be a nice Marvel nod.
Also, one important thing I'm really anxious to see... Will his head get painted like the G1 Sunbow cartoon Ratchet - white helmet with a black crest - or like the G1 Marvel version (on which Animated Ratchet is based on) - red helmet with white crest? Maybe Heinkei will go with the cartoon accurate Ratchet and Classics will stick with the Marvel one...
I really hope he has a red helmet with a white forehead thing.....
they seem to be doing henkei toon acurate so its likely that they will do white head grey forehead thing
Oh, that Ratchet is so bought, even with the pesky chrome on it.
Octane color is better than Tankor's colour.
Streak is look good. With transparent Windows
Thier's going to be a Classics Ratchet?!!! JOOOOY! =D
All will be bought with the quickness.
Double post... damn. Is it just me or has this server gotten a hell of a lot slower lately?
Ratchet looks great. Love the fact that they actually not only gave him a light bar, but they gave him a new head too. I guess I shouldn't be surprised as back at Botcon 07 (when they first started showing off Universe at the no pictures panels) they did mention that when feasible they were going to do new heads on the repaints so they weren't just straight up repaints (the transformation switch up for Sideswipe & Sunstreaker seems like it was just a happy accident).
Hasn't been much news from Hasbro on a Universe release of Ratchet (they were pretty vague at Botcon about it) due to their little no Universe character that's like his Animated counterpart until said counterpart is off shelves. I'd expect the Universe release to be sometime in 2009... which means the Henkei version is going to come out sooner than the Hasbro version for a change.
