    Yeh, I think you got this first. That being said, Ratchet looks good, but unless he gets released in Universe, I'm just sticking with Uni. Ironhide (can't afford to import stuff).

    Interesting, though if that's truly the Henkei scheme, it kinda deviates from the G1 cartoon look. The lightbar looks a lot like Prowl's too (Universe Prowl, not Henkei Prowl)

    If I were to guess based on nothing else, I'd think that these photos might represent Universe Ratchet instead of Henkei Ratchet, based on:
    * There's extra red deco which makes it technically less cartoon-like.
    * The white plastic is not a bright pure white
    * No apparent chrome.

    The cartoon color scheme was pretty boring really - I'm glad they decide to go with something interesting than something accurate. Its not as if the mold is completely accurate to how he looks in the cartoon anyway.

    I dunno, I think it looks kinda ridiculous. The whites are mismatched, and the red bumper looks stupid. Bot mode is passable though.

    I suppose it is pretty much Ratchet, but in all honesty it doesn't look great.

    Not bad, hopefully the US version looks just as good.

    personally i would have said it was universe ratchet. not a bit of chrome in sight which seems odd. its ok i am not keen on the use of the red in vehicle mode it looks odd. but saying that ill still buy it he is one of my favs

    okay, yeah - the red bumper is out of place and unneccessary.

    but the red on the front, top and the sides of the vehicle mode, i'm okay with that. its new, yeah but its pretty much the same junk you'd find on a real vehicle.

    I'm all over this. It's a very nice representation of Ratchet, imo. Overall, a very nice figure indeed.

    Interesting - no sign of a gun either. Perhaps it will be dropped ala Sideswipe's engine?

    Would be cool if it's been resculpted into some sort of medical tool. Probably too much to hope for though.

    I don't know about the colors, I'm a little iffy right now. Maybe if the crotch/upper thighs matched I'd dig it more. That's my main gripe with Hasbro's Ironhide, that separation just looks weird...like he's wearing a damn thong.

    i think this may be Universe Ratchet-look at the whites. part is just paint, the rest is just white plastic. i thought Henkei never did that

    Are we sure this is the Henkei version? We've seen preorders before that used pics of the Hasbro version...

    Looks like it's just a digibash, that would explain why it doesn't have chrome anywhere...

    The weapon missing also makes it a little of a tossup since that's kind of the big chromed part on their Ironhide

    I think if this is the Henkei version and it is out before the Universe one I think I'll have to pick it up. I always loved the look of G1 Ironhide and Ratchet and I am very excited for these two.
