    to the best of my knowledge, we havent seen the backs of their boxes, or actual production box pictures of either one of them outside of official hasbro photos. I assume if we had, their bios would be in the resource section already.

    I just recieved both of them today, retail via toywiz.com, and have taken some new pictures of their boxes. I can also confirm that ratchet, unlike many pre-production samples (including those seen in the feedback forum) DOES have the red paint details on his hood.

    Ratchet Bio and Tech Specs:

    Back on Cyberton, Autobot Ratchet was the best mechanic and machinist around. the only thing that kept him from true greatness was the constant partying. Years of war and a series of tragic encounters with Megatron have tempered his good nature, leaving him with a melancholy edge and a sour bedside manner. he's still the finest medic the autobots have at their disposal, but these days he's more distracted by his bad memories than his late nights.

    Strength: 4
    Intelligence: 8
    Speed: 4
    Endurance:5
    Rank: 7
    Courage: 8
    Fireblast: 3
    Skill: 10

    yes. it really says "constant partying".

    Hot Shot Bio and Tech Specs:

    Impatient, impulsive, and actually sometimes kind of annoying, Hot Shot is young, but full of potential. Optimus Prime sees in him the qualities of a great leader, and has taken it upon himself to mentor the young warrior in the ways of command. His mini-con partner Jolt tries his best to keep his erratic behavior under control, but Hot Shot is quite skilled in ignoring the voice or reason. He's also obsessed with something called JAAM, which most autobots think is some obscure fuel source, but no one knows for sure .
    (one A is bigger than the other in JAAM, but all caps)

    Strength: 6
    Intelligence: 7
    Speed: 9
    Endurance: 6
    Rank: 5
    Courage: 8
    Fireblast: 4
    Skill: 5

    Wow. Hot shot's bio is easily the best bio in a long time. At least since that fake bio for animated wreck-gar that appeared a few months ago.

    Hot Shot's bio is the greatest bio in the history of the universe. Well done, Hasbro!

    .....I was going to wait until the JP Hotshot came out to get the one that comes with his guns...but screw that. That bio is too awesome for me to not give my money to Hasbro.

    And Ratchet's bio seems to have a bit of Animated Ratchet's personality mixed in, I mean, I never used to link "sour bedside manner" with Ratchet until after Animated. Still won't get him though because I think the mold is ass, but it's still a good bio.

    Ratchet, constant partying? :lol  That doesn't really sound right...

    Hot Shot's bio is pure gold. It's way up there with Animated Skywarp and his 'Galactic Powers & Abilities' of getting shot in the back!

    The JAAM license plate was great, but what really makes Universe Hot Shot so damn wonderful is that since it's in the Bio, Hot Shot is officially, now and forever, obsessed with JAAM.

    I just cannot get over how awesome that is. I NEVER expected it to be in the bio.
