    That kinda sucks that they're throwing the exclusive part of my Best Buy purchase under the bus with this, yeah?

    Nice. Hope this means we'll see a mass release of him along with the rest of the Premium series. Maybe the Best Buy thing was a preview of sorts.

    Good! I already paid close to double for him, but he's a cool figure.... those who missed him deserve a mass release.

    I hope this happens with all "exclusives".. I don't like to think some people can have something others can't when they can afford it.

    Nice, I just bought the regular version. This one would have been better, but more money for shipping. I'm still waiting for the premiums to finish off the rest of my movie figures.

    Cool, glad to see them throwing fans a bone. I scored one when they were at Best Buy luckily enough, but I'm happy for others that wanted one but never saw 'em in stores!

    And certainly, it'll make that part of my collection less scarce, less exclusive, but I don't see why that matters. People that want to enjoy the figure should be able to without paying out the nose on eBay or wherever else.

    Hmm, weird. It's not even in the movie voyagers. It's lumped with Cybertron Dark Crumplezone. I wouldn't mind having one if I can get them before they're gone.

    I just checked out Hasbro Toy Shop site. They have a couple of the Heroes of Cybertron figures I thought that was kinda weird.

    Well we don't really know if they truly were meant as Best Buy exclusives. They could've been just some preview deal of the Premium series.

    You also have to consider that very, very few people were able to get them. They were made in abysmally small numbers. And Hasbro leave Ratchet out of the Premium series? I can't see that happening.

    I know what you're saying but still, it says BB exlusive on the little sticker. I can't complain I guess, look at Nightwatch Prime and all the other repaints but an exclusive should be just that, an exclusive. Hard to get and worth the extra money, not re-released a few months down the road as part of the premium line. I wonder if its going to go regular retail then. If I knew this, I would have saved my money.

    They were more than 19.99 at Best Buy? I don't even remember, I snatched them up blindly

    They were only 19.99 at BB.

    And yeah, it is funny the HTS image still has the "Best Buy Exclusive" sticker on it too.

    Why couldn't they have broken their "exclusives" for stuff like MP SS, or other more desirable figures none of us could find, instead of this lump of fail?

    Oh well, blah.

    Yeah, they were 19.99 but should've been worth more in the long run, like most exclusives are. Not any more, I guess. Oh well, maybe I can get the "exclusive" battle damaged Prime comin out. lol

    My two cents?

    This absolutely sucks. I HATE when they take exclusives, and make em available again later at retail. What the hell is the point of the freakin' exclusive !!??

    Sorry, but I don't give a rats ass about who couldn't get exclusives. I fit that category sometimes, and I pay the secondary price cause thats what they become worth. Exclusive makes em' special. Otherwise, I wouldn't have busted my ass or money to obtain it.

    Well, lets all just wait for the " SOLD OUT " BOTCON sets to go up for sale at hasbrotoyshop.com.

    No, I'm serious. I expect things like that now....

    The more I think about it, the more it reminds me of that Seinfeld bit about reservations:

    I had a BITCH of a time finding these figures myself. As far as I know, of all the times I looked in a Best Buy they were never around.

    I actually found them by accident.

    I stopped at a store I'd never been to and was looking around with my nephew and on our way out we spotted a Ratchet sitting up by a register with a Megs a few registers over.

    The funny part was the HOT chick at the register who said to me "those things are SOOOO cool! I was wondering if anyone was ever going to buy them!" She kept going on about it and he ended up in a conversation the entire time I was checking out.

    I must say I hate it when you meet those flirtatious type hotties but you really can't tell if they're 21 or 17. It's amazing how off one can be when trying to guess. If only I knew if she was over 18 or not...DAMN!

    Apparently those 2 had been around for awhile. They were the only 2 I saw through about 4 or 5 stores. Of course, it didn't help that I never knew where to look for them!
