    Iron Hide was a definate pick-up, but I'm not feeling that way about Ratchet. Maybe its his vehicle mode, I dunno.

    FO-CUS!! :) 

    Anyway, looks OK to me, in pretty much the same way Ironhide looked OK (as in "OK, not great.") to me.

    Why can't we get preview shots of figures from someone who can take a decent picture?

    Didn't think about that 'til you mentioned it. I agree. Can't really tell from the poor photo, but the plastic looks like it might be less milky-like than the earlier preview shots too.

    The plastic looks more like a solid white color instead of the milky, pearlescent color of the earlier testshot. Also, I really like that they got rid of the red markings on the hood. Those looked pretty tacky. Furthermore, the light blue painted windows works much better on this toy than it did on Ironhide. Still not ideal, but a lot better.

    The head kinda bothers me though. They kind of went with an odd combination of comic and cartoon -- white helmet with a red crest. I'm gonna have to fix that when I buy it and make it proper comic colors.

    Overall, a definite buy for me.

    The red weapon was kind of the deal breaker for me on this. I'd have to see it for myself, naturally, but I'm very much leaning towards Henkei.

    Yeah, the red arm cannon is kinda ugly IMO... good thing I have 2 Ironhide's... I think Ratchet will do just fine with a grey one.

    ... Hrm. May hafta go Henkei on this one.

    Well, can you blame them? I mean, black paint is just SO MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE.

    Plus, Takara keeps hogging all of it.

    Looks like they reused Prowl's lightbar.

    I bought Ironhide Universe.

    I've been alternating between henkei and universe in terms of repaints.
