    Based on that recolor and the black recolor we just saw of G1 Ironhide, I guess it's obvious that they're attempting to "backtrack" and give the original figures of the movie characters similar color schemes.

    I won't be surprised if we see an all grey/silver version of G1 Jazz, a version of G1 Bumblebee with black stripes, and even a G1 Prime with some flames added on pretty soon.

    You buy the book which has a form that has to be sent off. Japanese residents only, 2 items per book, its open for about a month, toy ships in April. The figure is being released along side the e-Hobby black Ironhide to celebrate the success of Transformers this year as well as the longevity of the line

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Robot.

    Tie a little bandana to ratchet because that's what the green reminds me of.
    I love it. There are just to few green autobots.

    Did someone say Sea Green? I know pollution is bad, but it's not THAT bad!

    And yeah, hideous but highly exclusive. It must be quite a dilemma being a completist!

    This is obviously Constructicon Ratchet. The seventh member of the team who decided to swap sides, when he heard that he would have no part in the Devastator project.

    :lol  That's exactly what I thought the second I saw this. Kinda "completes the circle" in a droll and trite way. Not interested either.:thumbdown
