    It was shown at a Botcon panel that didn't allow pictures to be taken, so only those who were there have seen it.

    It's been described as having a more accurate bot-mode, less accurate alt-mode, and having an EMP generator that can also be used by the RotF Deluxe Lockdown that's coming out at the same time. From what I've red, a gray prototype was shown, so we don't know, yet, how accurate/inaccurate the colors will be. Personally, I may wait for a G1 repaint, or kitbash my current Ratchet as someone else.

    From what I saw at Botcon it's going to be a cool figure. The EMP generator is awesome.

    Im not quite sure how much mroe inaccurate you can get for the guy. I can stand paint trobles, but if the alt-mode doesn't even look like te movie, then...

    I won't transform him!

    We all need to club together and arrange for someone to have their eye replaced with a camera for the next Botcon. :(

    his alt mode was more like this

    [​IMG]
    with the "hatchback" lookin back end

    but with the big EMP cannon on the back

    bot mode was pretty darn movie accurate

    no idea on the colors cuz it was a grey prototype
    [might be cool if they gave him like a desert camo paint job. i'd like that as a repaint or something. gotta go safety yellow/green tho so he can have a movie accurate bot mode. just use the 07 toy for alt mode hehe]

    All I heard is that the EMP looks like a big rifle, I hope he has more weapons then a EMP rifle, maybe his real gun or his buzzsaw.

    so they gave the movie'verse Ratchet the EMP from Animated, and brought Animated Lockdown into the movie'verse in toy form, and he works with Ratchet, so th....

    wait, what? WTF?

    I'm interested in the toys because I'm a TF Junkie, but damn if that just doesn't make a single bit of sense.

    No, no. They're "wave rivals" or something. They can share the EMP gun, just like in Animated.

    Btw, you're sig made me cry laughing.

    Hmmm...by the sounds of his alt-mode, anybody else think we'll be seeing a repaint/retool of the mold as Rollbar? From what I've read, it wouldn't be too hard to pass of the EMP generator as a rifle of some kind.

    Makes perfect sense to me. They're making rivalries between Autobots and Decepticons within the line. They're sort of bringing in Animated Ratchet's and Lockdown's relationship into the movie Universe. Jungle Ironhide and Bludgeon, and Scattershot and Skystalker are two other pairs with similar rivalries.

    Hasbro's been on a Roadbuster kick lately. Maybe they'll go that route.

    But yeah, that RPM makes the former seem pretty likely.
