    Would've liked it better if Rattrap was the one with a remolded head instead of Cheetor, but I'm guessing they went the 'generic' bot route in order to use the same mold for Tarantulas.

    I guess it's ok.

    Have they announced a Tarantuals as an extra too? I've been gone for a week and trying to play catchup.

    Though a generic bot head wouldn;t work for Tarantulas since he had the same head pre-beastmode....though it's not like Megatron had a massive rocket on his shoulder either...

    At least these colors look a bit better. Not so much of that yellow, now mostly in favor of black, and a less orangey brown.

    Well, since that rocket can be removed (for reasons better left to the imagination, maybe a stand-in for the grounded shuttle missions) I just figure the remaining bits could be folded around his back in "BW-land" rather than "What-we-get-as-a-toy-land."

    Why does that figure look a lot like CYB Ransack, with Soundwave's Cybertron Key?

    Basically because it is.

    It still doesn't look like Rattrap to me. I'll pass.

    I'm already in for a Botcon set, but I sure hope they get the wheel fixed on this. That might almost make up for no remold on the head. (I feel like smacking Cheetor around for stealing a remold slot)

    One thing I'd like to point out is that the ones which were stolen/leaked were in bags like the ones the loose set came in last year.

    My point is, the wheel has been mounted the wrong way on those ones.

    Check this thread on TFClub to see;
    http://club.tfclub.com/viewthread.php?tid=3532

    Its very doubtfull that only 1 has been made like that, plus all of the unbagged ones I've seen, have the wheel done the same way.

    Personally I think the bike mode riding a little higher at the back makes it look better.

    Eh. It really does not look a thing like Rattrap, and this was the one I was most excited about. The other redecos look like their namesakes but this is just "umm ok?"

    Those were also seen a month ago or more. It's entirely possible that the reason Rattrap got revealed so late after the others (after the box art even!) is that the test shot came back with the higher struts and Savage and/or the council asked to have them reversed.

    Did the original Ransack GT test shot we saw have the wheels on the right way, but all the later photos of production models showed the wheels wrong? Could be the same way for Botcon Rattrap?

    After all, last year's bug-things had the same misassembled jaw as Universe Repugnus got.

    Though we've also been told that Cybertron Bendy Prime repaint is showing up with the arms on right, so maybe people have started informing the plant to fix their errors.

    Nope. I'm just guessing.

    I agree; but TM Tarantulas was sort of a bike, so I guess they could go that route for him and in the process, have 2 uses for the Ransack mold like they did last year with the Arcee and Tow-Line molds.
