    Well, if they just hit shelves in the states, I'd say just wait for them in a local retail store.

    Unless you don't live in the states...

    Lockdown and Brawn. They scream awesome, whereas the Deluxe Ratchet... eh, it's not appealing in my opinion.

    Ebay:
    Definitely Ratchet. Despite being the underdog of the group, he actually makes for a very solid figure. He's well proportioned, has great articulation, and he's very movie-accurate except for the hip kibble -- think of it as a lab coat! If anything, his biggest flaws are being too well proportioned and under painted that he ends up looking boring compared with Brawn and Lockdown.

    I'm split on Brawn and Lockdown, but I suppose if you get Ratchet it makes more sense to get Lockdown for the weapon swapping gimmick.

    Lockdown = BADASS

    Brawn = ^^^Same^^^

    Though I'm probably going to have to get all three. What's Lockdown without Racthet? Especially with a Ratchet I'm interested in getting.

    They're all on Hasbrotoyshop. Get them there, if you live in the U.S.

    Ebay:
    Aren't you from Canada? They'll probably be showing up there soon as well.

    Buying toys like this off eBay just helps support scalping.

    Lockdown and Ratchet.

    Firstly, you get to do the swap around with Ratchet's gun. Secondly, the Ratchet mould is far nicer than people give it credit for (take a look at his thread in the review forum). Thirdly, after Animated, Ratchet and Lockdown go together like horse and carriage.

    Lockdown, first and foremost.
    Then I'd say Ratchet, since he and Ratchet have their "rivalry" according to their bios, not to mention Ratchet's weapon works with Lockdown.

    I don't own Ratchet or Brawn though, so I can't comment on which is better as a toy.

    Lockdown is a definite must. Ratchet is a great figure to go along with him, what with their history. Plus Brawn is kinda...eh, my interest in him dropped a lot the more we've seen of him. I don't mind some shell-forming, but his just doesn't leave him looking all that great.

    Ratchet and Brawn. Lockdown looks horrifically terrible.
