    I know they've ben seen before, but haven't heard of their release. Tried a search and found nothing.

    Today at the Target in Lancaster, PA I found the exclusive repaints of voyagers Ratchet and Starscream.

    EDIT: Added pictures

    If anyone really wants a bigger picture of the receipt, just ask, but I really didn't think it was necessary.

    It's the original Ratchet mold, but in the Dark of the Moon paint scheme with the lighter green and white graphic bar around the identification number (E4).

    He also has a silver cybertronian glyph on his right shoulder.

    I'll take a pic when I get home shortly.

    I saw one of my targets was doing a big reset today, they had empty slots on an endcap for "TF3 VOY" or something similar, and also for (what I assume to be) the cyberverse BB & Megs pack.

    The other target had no such endcap. It might be a reset for this sunday though, so happy hunting!

    Added pictures to the first post.

    Yeah, this end cap consisted of 8 pegs of Deluxes (nothing new), and underneath that was a cardboard display for the Dark of the Moon video game, and below that 8 of the exclusive Voyagers. They also had a back aisle endcap with Dark of the Moon stuff for the little kids.

    I knew the display was new, and every year I take a crack at asking for the cardboard displays. Knowing they would say "no", I asked. Well...they didn't say "no."

    I think it makes a wonderful cat bed. Orion Prime agrees:

    Is this really the SIXTH redeco of Voyager Ratchet? (Original, Premium, Rescue, Desert Tracker, Night Ops) This mold has more variants than any Voyager Movie Prime!

    I don't care to much for Ratchet, but I want Starscream.

    I still think the Original TFTM Voyagers for Ironhide and Ratchet are the best interpretations of either: both have issues, but less issues then any of the retreads (i.e. HFTD Ratchet and DOTM Ironhide are too skinny, Dotm Ratchet and HFTD Ironhide are too small, Leader Ironhide too big... etc)

    that said, every release of the Ratchet mold between Premium and this one was a bit of a waste (and a shelf-warmer)

    I think I'll just get Ratchet, although it wouldn't've hurt Hasbro to revamp him from a new mold, just as they did the Deluxe I got back a few weeks ago (and just 3 days before the release date, along with Skids). :)
