    Both. Ironhide is pre-ordered and Ratchet will be by the end of the week.

    Yeah, neither. For almost $100 difference in retail cost, I am happy with Universe 2.0 Ironhide and Ratchet.

    you will get more people going for Both or Neither, instead of one. People who can afford one will most likely get both, and people who cannot afford one, obviously won't go for any.

    I picked both. I love those weapons and accessories, and the universe mold has so many weaknesses. Looks like a Rubik's cube.

    Don't get either. They're ridiculously expensive.

    I want to take my vote for both back. After seeing that they're over $100 each I'm not getting either. I'll just leave my collection with two empty spaces until we can get better and more affordable versions somewhere down the line...

    $100+ per figure is way too much for me. I've also got to go with neither. I'll stick with my Classics.

    Sure, but the aftermarket price on those shot up like a Saturn 5.

    Factor in free shipping and 20 accessories apiece, they aren't so bad. Higher than I'd like, of course.

    I never like buying things before I see them in color, but there's a good possibility I'll dig deep in my pockets and get both. I agree that you'll see a lot of "both" or "neither," as those are my options.

    If I had the money I'd get both. Since I don't have that kind of disposable income, neither it is.

    I'm also okay with my Henkei Ratchet and Universe ironhide, especially since I found an alternate transformation that eliminates most of the 'bot mode issues, and painted Ironhide's face silver.

    I'll just be getting Ratchet - it's the best version we're ever likely to get of him and I've always had more of a soft spot for him than Ironhide.

    Actually yeah, they are so bad. And it doesn't help a lot of the accesories are just pointless.

    I would've prefered cheaper figures if it means they didn't come with a lot of shit I won't use anyway. I mean seriously, were ALL those tools needed? Ratchet has doubles of most of them. Does he really need one of each for each hand?

    If I was actually going to buy one, I'd get Ironhide. But I'm not getting either. Too expensive for me.

    Shipping is only like $10 on these.Unless you pay for express bumping it to 20-25


    So they still want $100 each for a large deluxe.

    Who the hell needs or even wants 20+ accessories for a figure? One of the whole points of modern TF engineering is to incorporate as many accessories into the actual bot as possible so that there aren't loose pieces anymore.

    On a side note, does anyone know what Igears big "master plan" is here? According to at least one guy here who claims to be in the know, he says they plan to essentially recreate the entire G1 line or something and that none of these current figures are meant to stand in or replace Classics-verse. Just curious.
