    Are these two figures recommendable? With the TRU sale I'm tempted to get them.

    Depends on whether you purchased them from the first movie or not. Honestly, if you already have the molds I would probably pass. The decos aren't as nice and the only thing you get extra is that big freakin' cannon for Ironhide.

    Ironhide has new, more accurate head sculpt. Ratchet is just a straight repaint, which is exactly why I won't be getting him.

    no they fit on his truckbed. I say if you have 07 Hide then buy the new one and take its cannons and head and give them to the 07 hide that's what I did and he looks great. Rachet is an easy pass but if you don't have the first one get it cause rachet is a pretty good mold.

    The only 07 figs I have are Bumblebee and Barricade, I'll most likely get them thanks to the $10 gift card at TRU.:thumbs2:

    I don't have either mold but I think ratchet looks like Ass personally.

    I'm waiting to see what the Junglehide repaint looks like, and the Deluxe Ratchet/Lockdown pairing is irresistible to me, being a BIG TFA Fan.

    Also- 100th Post!! WOOT

    Both are great molds, and like most, I just have the 07 version.

    I only have the first movie versions but neither mold is bad IMO. Ironhide can be a little tricky to transform and Ratchet is a little plain but I think they're both decent.

    I say, get the new IH, and just wait for the new deluxe mold of ratchet.

    ratchet is really generic, i wouldn't recommend him unless you're a completist. ironhide is better but all the panels make him look kinda weird and the lack of ankle joints make it hard to get into dynamic poses with the cannons. i say 07 ironhide is better because the vehicle deco is accurate and the cannons can stow away a bit better

    Ironhide is alright; the RotF version's colorscheme isn't very accurate though, but his head and cannons are great. Voyager Ratchet, on the other hand, sucks balls no matter how you look at it. He is way too big next to Ironhide, a crummy and blocky looking mold, and is based off old concept work with a newer head plastered on there. He doesn't have his gun or saw from the movie; just some silly fold-out ax weapon and a retarded "capture claw" thingy made from his cargo rack. What is more, a newer, smaller, more affordable Deluxe version is coming out; I would wait for that.

    Ironhide is a yes. The colourscheme is okay. However, you can wait for a deluxe Ratchet.

    Speaking of which, have we seen anything of said deluxe?
