Finally Encore Ratchet and Ironhide are out in Japan.
Encore Ratchet and Ironhide
Looks like the heads for Encore Ironhide and Ratchet have to be removed from the inner flaps of the packaging if you want to use them.
Where's Meister/Jazz? Wasn't he supposed to come out before them? ARGH!
isnt hes same wave as sky lynx?
Actual street date is December 20th. Sadly, for those of us that don't receive shipments directly from Takara-Tomy, we have to wait.
Meister is to be released around 13/3/08
Mine are on the plane already, jippie!!
Aussies and their weird-ass time-keeping
The day will come to us sooner than to you, because it's 19/12/07 here already.
Cardboard heads? No offense, that sounds really cheesy.
so cheesy in fact, the concept of cardboard head sounds..paper thin.
No brah, cardboard heads are a hip new retro form of origami.
I love that I'm getting these. Seriously, it's awesome.
well you dont have to use the paper heads... and for those of us who identify more with the cartoon than the original toys, it may be preferable to no heads.
These molds were cheesy to begin with but back in the day it didn't matter. It was all about just having them in your collection. They did the best they could and, truth be told, as long as they are standing on their gun platforms they don't look all that bad.
No way I'll be putting a cardboard head on them. Gotta keep 'em vintage looking.
They are cheesy. They did it to try and appeal to the folks complaining that the ratchet and ironhide toys never had proper heads.
I think Ratchet could've came with the medical cross on his hands.
*Starts payment to HLJ* Hell yeah!
Just bought the pair off of an ebay seller. 49.00 for both isn't too shabby.
The sight of those G1 japanese boxes just brings a tear to my eyes. Reminds me of childhood. And for $20 each, that's a great price. I hope my HK connection comes thru on it.
