    the news story for this claims that he comes with activators Starscream and Prowl. I believe it actually comes with the legends versions of those characters. A mod might want to fix that before it causes some confusion.

    So does that mean I should start hunting in earnest in about a month or so???
    I will have this oddly colored Ratchet, as well as the "blazing" Lockdown.
    I really want the clear Lockdown as well. I think all 3 will look cool next to each other.
    Still hunting for wave 4 animated...

    I think I like Ratchet better in the yellow; it feels more like an EMS vehicle to me ^_^

    I know, 'bout damn time they started making more repaints. I was worried I might have to go completist with this line.

    What Transformers world are you living in? J/k :D 

    I'm always so bothered that this ebay seller hardly ever posted bot AND alt mode pics.

    On topic - I also feel like this, along with pretty much all other TFA repaints so far, isn't a must have for my collection. I am tempted to buy that Classics BB repaint cuz if it stays at $.99 plus $20 shipped it'd be cheaper than buying the 3 pack of figs I already own

    You know...I really have no problems with repaints as long as it's another character and not the same character with another paint job. What's the point?

    i already consider myself having rescued one ratchet.

    i passed on a lot. dinobots, lugnut, black arachnia. since they brought out the big pallet displays at walmart i actually bought a couple i didnt think i would. im running out of must buys on this line. they need to go back through the core G1 characters again. jetfire, mirage, smokescreen, and wheeljack. if the rumors about the line taking off into the blur and rodimus realm are true i'll be done after sentinel prime and ultra magnus without breaking a sweat or $300.

    not that that matters but sometimes its wierd when all the posts just say will buy will buy will buy. as a selective buyer i would like to hear opinions.

    i would like to see a repaint of prowl though. gold is a silly color.

    1. We have had 12 deluxe animated toys over 4 waves (14 if you count the 2 pack) and 1 bumblebee repaint. That is not sad at all. there were only 12 unique deluxe molds in the whole armada toy line.

    2. This is not even part of the main toy line its a store exclusive, they are always repaints

    Pass on both. That yellow Ratchet is horrible, a green I might have gone for.

    I could name several dozen store exclusives that are not repaints.
