    Not sure if anyone has mentioned this and I did not see a thread about it. I opened up my Transformers Prime Ratchet and Arcee figures this evening and noticed that Ratchet's instructions appear to feature a different head.

    See the attached pics.

    UPDATE: ADDED all the pics here. My scanner isn't getting a better shot than my camera. The 4th pic is the best.

    No idea of what it is but it looks cool. Zooming on the pic it kinda reminds me of TFA Grimlock or Grapple.

    Maybe I'm crazy, but it's very similar to movie Shockwaves head. A scan would be nice, or a more top down shot.

    Could it be Ironhide? Ratchet and Ironhide have been repaints of each other before....

    Just a thought...

    I considered that too, but it's doubtful, considering that Ironhide has his own unique Cyberverse Commander figure. If he's got his own Cyberverse toy, I can't imagine them making the Deluxe a Ratchet remold.

    I'd guess Ironhide.

    But wasn't it also confirmed a while back that we were getting a Deluxe figures named "Dead End"?

    Sounds like a good name for a Decepticon medic.

    Looks like the Movie version of Hoist to me.

    -ZacWilliam, or just a tad uglier.

    Edit - Just beat. I'd like a Hoist, but I'd prefer one a little less ugly than that looks to be.

    My first thought would be that its a WWE Crossovers Kane, but that's probably just (un)wishful thinking.
