    Maybe they will include them with all their releases going forward. Fortunately it shouldn't be a long wait for Ratchet and Bumblebee.

    Take Megamoonman's :lol 

    I am happy if they keep including surprise bonuses with these fanatastic and fantastically priced toys. I will keep buying them. Could get a nice little stack of energon, restore cybertron as one does.

    Yeah the two hand guns peg into back of leg, big gun can go in underside of roof. The backpack missile launcher is ok, mean't to reproduce that one flying scene, doesn't look so great on him when standing, it does finish off the platform. Non of that really mattered to me away from the figure, altmode and main weapons.

    Nicely involved transformation, slighty more complex than i imagined, worth it as he looks great in both modes.

    Bring on ratchet.

    I got 4 from mine. Two outside the box that are a lighter pink, two inside that are more purple. Ordered mine from BBTS.

    TCP is still listing theirs as pre-order as well, along with Takara Sharkticon which is also in stock elsewhere. Anyone home, TCP?

    They are still on the road. They even posted on FB that their stock for the Takara Sharkticons/Hot Rodimus/Kup should be coming in next week.

    Got this little fella from KAPOW, along with Soundwave, very impressed. I think he the first Ironhide I have owned that I actually like as a figure. They nailed the facesculpt IMO, perfectly captured that strong yet friendly balance. 20171018_175936.jpg

    Damn it. TFSource still hasn't even received their shipment of Ironhide yet.

    I guess it is good sign that their BB should ship as planned.

    They really should rerelease their Soundwave with ball jointed elbows.

    Yeah that and a slightly higher leg swivel and he would be perfect, but for the price I really cannot complain.

    BBTS is sold out and my preorder wasn't filled. Not in yet at TFS. Bought one on TFDirect and cancelled BBTS.

    Perrrrrrrrfect!

    I think I'll be painting his windows a metallic gray that matches his gray body parts, but with some blue added in. That way it's like dark tinted windows. Unpainted windows on vehicle modes bug me.
    He's fantastic. Scales great with DX9's Dinos too.
    Get the set. The Megatron he comes with is awesome.

    I think we should lump GT, MechPlanet, and MFT under a "scout scale" collection. They're just a bit too big to go with actual Legends scale figures.
