    Look, they actually painted the jagged red line on the sides of Ratchet's ambulance mode.

    Would that have been so hard to do, Hasbro?

    I was considering cancelling my pre-order for Ratchet but that second picture has sold me on him. Love the way that minicon looks.

    Yeah, I definitely prefer Takara's Ratchet now. I went ahead and pre-ordered him myself.

    Hrm, I kinda want that Ratchet now, but can't help feeling that a voyager is necessary

    Also, Skywarp is a must buy. New minicon weapon AND new missiles?

    Dammit ALL. I want those Minicons.

    Is it worth importing the whole damn line just to get them? Absolutely not.

    Dear Hasbro, please release in cool old school Minicon three packs. kthx.

    I wholly support that idea! Certainly an ideal way to double on some of them...

    It's a sticker, and they didn't paint his chest windows, while Hasbro did.

    Picking between a sticker for a red line and bare white chest windows, or no sticker and painted chest windows, I see no reason to pick the japanese version.

    Microns look great, but I'm not importing those toys just for them. Local release please, Hasbro.

    Also, I wonder if that extremely obviously Shockwave micron Prime comes with has anything to do with a potential TFP Shockwave.

    Arcee's not out until May in Japan. It looks like they just have Wave 1 (AM-01 - AM-06) up plus the initial EZs.

    I may need to get the Takara Ratchet for the stickers, or, if it is painted, to partswap. I love the mold as it is though.

    Is it? I can't see it, but I'll take your word for it.

    I know it's weird, but female characters traditionally don't do so well with Japanese TF toys.

    It's weird as hell that with a cast as limited as TFP's, they would skip such a prominent MAIN character like Arcee, yet have Skywarp in their first wave.

    We'll only have to wait two months though for her and Bulkhead (Japanese releases, anyways). There's still no news on a Takara Wheeljack and Voyager Megs, which are already out here in the US.
