    But, these're interesting...
    AM-03 is zombie version?
    Skywarp will be repaint of Starscream, like DOTM.

    The way Japanese pronounced the character is sure broken English or this is the way they pronounced these characters?

    It makes sense in a weird way, the way the Japanese pronounce 'Ba' would be closer to the way we pronounce 'buh'. To them, the 'bu' would be pronounced more like 'boo'

    Of course, Boomblebee would be kinda funny too.....

    It's been common knowledge that Ratchet would be a Deluxe since I and several other fans saw his resin prototype at Botcon.

    So.

    Any pics out there for this resin model? I've done searches hither/thither/yon, but can't seem to find it. Ever since Ratchet's 'coming out' episode- Bigger, Stronger, Faster...I've been a huge fan of this guy.

    If no pics...can you at least share your impressions of the resin sculpt? I know I'm totally living vicariously through you, but so be it.

    Most likely this is simply one of Hasbro's myriad repaints (they did the same switcheroo in the DOTM line with Skywarp/Thundercracker recolor), but if not I can see the above being perhaps the intended name. Skyquake simply makes more sense, since we've already seen his resin proto at SDCC and other places.

    I was too. Is a Deluxe version of Ratchet big enough for him to be more or less in scale with the other Autobots?

    It was shown during the Hasbro panel, which doesn't allow photos. Ever. Small price to pay for early reveals.
    Uh...okay....

    Basically it was Ratchet: a dead ringer for the show model in both modes, to my eyes, as much as Voyager Optimus, really. No odd proportions like Bulkhead, or compromises like Arcee and Cliffjumper. Mind, he'll definitely have some cheating, and they only showed a picture from the front. He of course has his two blades, and people have told me they can be deployed in vehicle mode like Wheeljack, but I don't remember.

    Well, here's hoping we get a Skywarp re-deco but I thought the TFP team had ruled out having Starscream's obligatory repaints? If they were to have them, they'd not be clones.

    Did I imagine that? If a Skywarp redeco did come out would that scupper his appearance in another model at some point in a future series?
