    It's the Henkei line... they chrome everything. He'll probably have it someplace that it shouldn't be like 65% of the Henkei line.

    Is Cheetor still named "Cheetas"?

    EDIT: Wait, does that mean Ratchet is no longer C-12?

    Awww damn, if they take Ratchet outta Henkei I will seriously throw a fit of pure range.

    Cheetor? Whut? That makes little sense...

    Ratchet is slated for a January release last we were told. Chances are he's just gonna get renumbered.

    Yeah cheetor is still called Cheetas, as for the C12 heading it may just be the wholesaler getting it wrong.

    No, I guess with Ratchet pushed back to January and these shoved in between I guess Ratchet will get a new number.

    Takara did that when they delayed the Encore Minibots.

    More than likely. I wonder if this was done so that Ratchet would coincide close to the eventual Universe release of the figure?

    Can't wait to see how Hound looks. Maybe Takara will give him the military stars on his shoulders?

    Universe Hound or Henkei Hound? I picked up Henkei Prowl and Sunstreaker but got Universe Sideswipe and Bluestreak. Decisions, decisions...

    Sweet! I can't wait to see how Hounds turns out. I'm glad I'm patient enough to wait for Henkei to compare with classics so I can choose the one I like the most!

    Ah, crud. I was hoping Cyclonus would be released first to boost the Decepticon ranks. Oh well, at least the Universe release won't be hard to stave off. ¬_¬

    Same. I can't wait for the pictures to be released. Though I doubt there will be enough difference to warrant the higher cost on Hound. Henkei Cyclonus is the one I'm really looking forward to seeing.
