    He doesn't come close. Don't tell me you've never encountered threads like "have you seen" or "help" or "look", with no indication as to what the thread's about unless you go into it? At least we knew this thread was about Ironhide.

    Surely, given the nature of this forum, anything just titled "Transformers" will win?

    And for the sake of vague on-topicness: any idea when Ironhide will hit the UK? And for that matter, are Hasbro planning a Ratchet?

    Yeah, I'm sure we've already seen at least proto images of the modded figure. And we know there's a Henkei version coming out soon, too.

    I've seen the Henkei images, just everytime I mention it on another forum, someone says "Oh, Hasbro aren't doing a Ratchet. It'll probably end up as a Botcon exclusive." I swear, some people think any figure they're remotely interested in will be a Botcon exclusive because Hasbro HATES them.

    I'm pretty sure that the Henkei Ratchet will be a wide release, and that there will be a regular classics Universe outside of Japan. They seem to be steadily making most of the original G1 bots in Henkei/Universe form and I see no reason for Ratchet to end up a con exclusive. At least I hope not.

    Besides, I think the only real reason Hasbro didn't do Thundercracker and co at mass retail was that they didn't want to oversaturate the market with Seekers. After all, while we may well know them for redecoing every mould they ever produce whether the new deco's sensible or not, they don't usually reuse the mould more than one or two times.

    That's clearly not going to happen with the Ironhide mould.

    Sideswipe,ironhide and Silverstreak(bluestreak)wave-3 are all about a month or so away from release.

    And ratchet will be mass released in either wave 4 or 5 with hound and cyclonus.
