    I can't get over the idea in my mind that a toy in a box, in robot mode, is something less than a Leader class figure.

    I have the same problem when it comes to the Japanese toys too T_T

    However, I want that Ratchet. I would like to own that mold, and black repaints are nice ^_^

    I prefer Backfire's colors to Knock Out. Something about Mountain Dew green on a crotch rocket bike doesn't work for me.

    I might get Backfire.

    Stupid name, though. I'll just call him Afterburner

    Do want Backfire, also nice to see they're still getting mileage out of the Automorph trademark on Ratchet's packaging.

    For being just a repaint, Ratchet doesn't look all that bad, imho. Still, I'm happy with the one I have, so I won't be getting this one.

    Backfire looks quite nice. I might get him, as I haven't gotten the mold yet, and this is, imo at least, the best deco used on it so far.

    I was just thinking, with the yellow box line now, only deluxe will be in alt mode. Leader, Voyager, Scout & legend all in robot mode. Plus won't all the PCC scouts & minicons be in robot mode too?

    No thanks on ratchet, I still can't get rid of my Movie 1 version anyway.

    Backfire though looks awesome!
    Just what I need, a Typhoon paint job motorcycle for my motion revive Kamen rider the next. Now here's hoping reprolabels does the grasshopper and shocker labels for it.

    So this is basically Ratchet in Lockdown colours... is that what they're going for here?

    I'd say they're going for Night Ops Ratchet. It coincidentally ends up being much like Lockdown.

    I like how they throw some black into an old mold and then call it "Night whatever."

    "Ahh, yes! The night version of Ratchet is finally out! I can't wait to add him to my "Night" versions display."

    Nothing exciting here. It seems like Hasbro doesn't know what to do with themselves in between TF2 and TF3.

    They're really trying to wear out that bike mold, aren't they? Though I do think this is the best deco it's had.

    Again with the roof rack as "combat stretcher" thing. Has anyone figured out how to use it as such beyond precariously balancing it on two robots' hands?

    And not all of those. Battle Blade BB will be squatting ridiculously in his bubble.
