    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.

    Well done Hasbro, a new head and a light bar. Enough reason to buy it for me.

    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...

    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.
