    WhY mY eVeRyThInG hUrT!?!

    Seriously, that robot mode picture BEGS to be retaken. You'd think they'd have someone on hand to help these photographers. I can't blame them for the crappy pictures. In fact, I even feel bad for them since all they are trying to do is their job. It's not easy for anyone to be given a Transformer and told, "here now change it and take a pic of that", especially if they are not familiar with the toys, let alone one never before seen. I hope they at least have a set of instructions given to them. What good is an official product photo if you can't even get the product photographed right??? That's like taking a picture of a refrigerator on it's side with the door swung open and a few shelves missing.

    It'd almost make more sense if they had one of the designers take a crash course in photography so they can take all the photos and make sure the product is presented correctly, then have another person clean up the photos if necessary.

    Then again, maybe they do this on purpose to amuse us fans since they know we love to laugh at a horribly mistransformed transformer.

    Hot Shot needs the side cannons that will come with the Henkei version.

    Since my collection requires a medic and a rookie, these two will do.

    WHeRe jaAm CoPtoR!?

    That picture of Hot Shot looks ass, but I'm still picking it up, if for nothing else but the lisence plate.

    Edit: I just saw Ratchet's license plate, too. Nice.

    Here's a question, has Ratchet ever been portrayed as having his headcrest red and helmet white in any series other than somewhat in animated?

    Actually, thanks to Hot Shot's mistransformation, it would appear that the windshields on the back of his legs actually fold up or tuck away, as opposed to the Henkei images from a few weeks ago that showed the windshield projecting out of his calves. Although, it might just be the angle of the photograph with respect to the two wildshield parts.

    It dunno... it's a great obscure comic reference... specifically, to the "HELP UZ" cover from the Marvel comics (with the conjoined Ratchet/Megatron)

    I doubt that would happen. It'd more likely be the case as with the 2007 movie figures where it was meant for TF fansites to review a few of the new movie toys.

    No... in G1 he had a red head and white crest.

    There WERE some issue of Devastation which had the head miscolored like that when it came out though. They all got fixed in the TPB, but that IS a place where you can find the red crest and white helmet.

    It would switch back and forth between red/white and white/red on the same page, lol.

    I personally think the head's a compromise. White head like toon, red crest to evoke the red head of the comic.

    I think he looked like that in a issue and I page of IDW's series, I might have to get these two like this instead of henkei since I may run out of money soon and I need to save for the new movie line, mostly because I want that new prime!

    Edit: woops too late hehehehe!
