    Now that I found out that they are making a Deluxe Ratchet and a Deluxe Ironhide should I get them or should I just stick with the Voyagers? That way I can replace my broken Voyager Ironhide and get a Voyager Optimus Prime and the upgrades when they come out and they would be the right sizes to my collection of Decepticons.

    to replace a broken Voyager Ironhide, i recommend Recon Ironhide. then get Dlx Ratchet as Red Alert and Ironhide as Trailbreaker-thats what im doin.

    Deluxe Ironhide? I seem to have missed this. Are we talking ROTF?

    Deluxe Ratchet looks pretty cool, but I like my voyager just fine... a repainted version of the toy, maybe a new head sculpt, however, I may spring for.

    Nah, I don't see that. they will still look like Ratchet and Ironhide, just smaller and different color.

    i'm getting both of them since i have yet to get a bigger prime than first strike optimus prime (the g1ish repaint from the first movie line) and i don't got a ratchet so these will be perfect, and i could give my voyager to my best friend since he wants an ironhide

    I think I'd stick with the Voyagers till Peaugh does Deluxe Ironhide - probably later this year.

    I'm getting Ratchet because he looks badass, but I'll have to wait for better pictures of Ironhide before I can pass judgement.

    I agree, all we have is one picture so far, not much to pass judgment on. As far as Ratchet, I will probably get him, but I am not sold on the look. Sure the Voyager has some issues, but I don't see a lot that is better on the Deluxe at this point.

    My real hope is new Voyager Molds for both of these for the next movie. Or even a Leader (maybe Ultra) Ironhide. But I must say, I took a flyer on the Recon Ironhide and am actually pretty impressed. The whiteout drawn all over him isn't too bad in bot mode, and some of the other color choices don't look as terrible as the pictures make them out to be.

    I don't have a movie Ratchet yet, and was excited when I saw the Deluxe. I can't wait to get it, but I had been bummed about its size.

    Then I learned of the Deluxe Ironhide, and I'm ecstatic. I don't have any Ironhides except for the original release, and I wanted one for my ROTF display. I was strongly considering Recon 'Hide, but I'll probably pass on that now and wait for the Deluxe. I'll have all new Ironhide and Ratchet figures that are in scale with each other, and should look good next to other Deluxes. Now if Voyager Power-Up Prime gets released over here...

    I'm most likely getting both of them. I skipped the voyagers.

    I'm all over the but at this point I'll even buy shameless repaints just for new wall fodder, so I'm not the best person too ask. I'll say this: it's unlikely I'll buy extras to open.

    What if Deluxe Ratchet is better than the Voyager and the Voyager (Recon) Ironhide looks better than the Deluxe?

    Getting deluxe Ratchet (though he keeps looking worse everytime I see him). I already have Offroad and Recon Ironhide, so pass on the deluxe.

    Well, Ratchet is certainly worth the purchase. He's cheaper than the original and manages to, in bot mode, at least, be much more screen-accurate.

    Deluxe Ironhide looks to be less screen-accurate, but I'm glad they made one - I'll get him if only to give deluxe Ratchet someone to hang out with. Although I'm tempted to wait and see if they do a red repaint.

    I collect Ironhide, so I'll get him.

    But I'm passing completely on Ratchet.

    I'm planning to get both, since Ironhide's pretty much my favorite character/design from either movie, and I'm a proud owner of at least one version of him in each class. I also appreciate the chance to get a cheaper Ratchet for the sake of character completion. I've -nearly- bought the FAB version several times just to fill out the ranks, but this upcoming Deluxe looks like the better option.
