    We've seen the official pictures before (comes in a two-pack with a repaint of Sideways), but I think this is the first time we've seen an Ebay auction for it. Personally I'm hoping they repaint/retool the Deluxe Ratchet mold as this guy. The alt-mode and bot-modes fit him perfectly. Just needs a new head and the right color scheme.

    Yeah, his existence has been known.still, good to see.

    I really hope Hasbro will eventually release a voyager Rollbar, but I'm sure they won't. I guess deluxe Brawn is as close as we will get...

    A Voyager Rollbar?

    How about just a repaint of '07 Landmine?

    You know, that's an excellent idea.... I wouldn't be at all surprised if that's at least partly the reason this RPM exists: to set up a precedent for an eventual deluxe Ratchet repaint (not that Hasbro has ever really needed to justify out-of-the-blue repaints before, I suppose).

    It'll be interesting to see what the little relief-image robot on the bottom of this toy looks like. If it looks at all like Ratchet, I think you've nailed it.

    Oh yeah, ha, missed that.

    Well, it's not very Ratchety after all, I suppose. Not that that would keep them from still using it as a basis for a Ratchet repaint. He does look vaguely Brawn-like, as well, as netkid noted.

    Boy, there sure are a lot of these 4wd jeep-type vehicles in this line. :)

    You're absolutely right!

    4wd trucks, jets, sports cars, and construction vehicles galore.

    What this line really needs is more watercraft, a submarine, classic cars, a space shuttle, a lunar rover, and any homicidal household appliances that you can think of. Pretty much anything else has already been covered as far as I can remember. Heck I wouldn't even mind some cybertronian forms or protoforms.

    And once all of that is used up then we can finally say "Give us the Dinobots!"

    Because let's face it, you can't argue that a giant mechanical scorpion and a one eyed robo-cat that vomits micro robots which form into a paper thin one-eyed killer robotic thief is less ridiculous than an Autobot that transforms into a Tyrannosaurus Rex and talks like a caveman.

    still waiting for the release of the rollbar vs. sideways here, as well as jolt, sideswipe, and the n.e.s.t. ironhide vs. starscream.
