    Excellent! Time to get out hunting or, alternatively, checking HTS.

    Both of those, I'm going to try to get the Henkei version first. Then get Hot Shot because he has the best bio ever. Or buy the cardback.

    You live in Portland Oregon? Let me know if you see Ratchet. I'll check the Salem Freddy's this weekend (I hope).

    Nice. I'm sure it'll be another month or more before I see them around my area. After all, I'm still searching for Inferno and he's been out for awhile.

    Ratchet and Hot Shot are out.

    R.I.P. Classics 2.0.
    Hope there's a Classics 3.0 coming out next year. Hopefully, some more mini-bots like Brawn, Gears and Huffer can get made in Classics form. God knows why Jazz, as popular a character as he is, wasn't made yet.

    I also hope Transformers Animated returns in some new form. There are loads of characters that they need to make...

    This is some very cool news inded. Thanks to board member jimmynguyen41 for hooking me up with a Ratchet & Hot Shot for me. :bowdown:  :thumbs2: 

    It's great to have fellow collectors that will grab stuff for you when you are the weekday child care provider for your kids. :)

    Cool.
    So my collecting is almost done. I would have picked up both Ratchet and Hotshot... but since these guys are almost $13 each, I'm only gonna stick with Ratchet.
