    Whoo! That's our first confirmation of a Classics Ratchet too! Looks as though the first three are our wave 3 - Lambor (Sideswipe), (Silverblue)streak and Ironhide. I wonder if he will come to the states - I think he might be a store exclusive in the US since there's an Animated Ratchet on shelves. Of course by the time he makes it it would be Christmas, so maybe that's a nonissue.

    Thundercracker! NICE!! I'm looking forward to that. We're getting Ironhide and Ratchet, as well. That's going to be an awesome month for TF fans.

    Wahhhh.

    First Animated comes out and rocks my world.
    Then Universe releases some fab figures that are must haves.
    Now we get MP 'Cracker and a bunch of other, new, Japanesey, classics.

    My wallet really cannot handle this :( 

    Now take into account my OCD level of misb collecting and the fact that I also like to open figures (meaning two of each) and I may have to sell body parts to afford all this :)

    Well, Takara rep at Botcon said it'd only be a matter of time before we saw MP Thundercracker, and Grimlock didn't they? So hopefully we'll hear more about Grimlock for a early/mid 09 release?


    Had Takara previously announced Prowl/Sunstreaker for Henkei, or are they oddly shipping later than the rest of the Henkei crowd?

    Dammit, I knew this was going to happen.

    I know Ratchet's going to just be a repaint/remould of IH, and that sucks. Not taht being a remould isbad, but Classics IH is just so much fail and I like Ratchet a lot.

    Brand new mould never before released. IH was presented at BotCon.

    I'm curious about the Henkei version of Ironhide, because doing the usual G1 paint job on the Universe mold might come off...strange, wouldn't it?

    Also, Ratchet!

    I'm not interested in the Henkei or GT-R stuff, but really glad to hear that MP Thundercracker is going to be made. Now, I can cancel my pre-order for Henkei Thundercracker; if I'm going to spend that much money for a Thundercracker figure, to get a complete set of Seekers, it might as well be the high quality (and free of that godawful chrome) Masterpiece version.

    First of all: Masterpiece Thundercracker! :rock  I mean, yeah, I know he's a repaint, but Seekers are one of the few repaints I don't mind too much. Though it does mean I'll have to wait a little longer for MP Grimlock...

    Secondly, please please PLEASE let this Nissan GT-R be a new BT. The fact that they've used a licenced vehicle leads me to hope...

    Yay Henkei:) 

    I was really hoping MP-07 would be a new figure, I am sick of repaints. I only have Greenscream and US Starscream, and I refuse to own 4 of a $100 figure. Good news for those of you who wanted him though.
