    Hot Shot looks good...though I might have to get Takara's if that one indeed has the launchers and this one doesn't.

    I'm just happy that Universe Ratchet doesn't appear to use that milky translucent plastic often seen on white toys. If only it had darker paint on the windows and didn't have that stylized cow skull on the hood, it would be pretty darn nifty.

    Ratchet idk about ill likely get him cause I like the mold but they kinda skimped on the paint work cause he still looks alot like Ironhide except for the white

    Hot Shot is just plain awesome ill definitely get him

    huh, i like aspects o both Ratchets ~ Hasbro's white plastic surprisingly is matching the white paint better than Takomy's, but the red stripes are just an eyesore. Takomy's light bar is cooler, but it's weak sauce that it's totally unpainted. But, OH that allspark blue they used for Ratchets windows (i'd have gone Smoke for his translucent and dark grey for the painted windows.

    I'm not overly crazy about the mold though, i may just stick with Hasbro...

    Both Ratchets have appealing elements. Henkei still comes out on top, in my opinion, but I'll honestly probably end up picking up both.

    Hot Shot looks excellent as well. Always nice to have more (semi-)realistic cars in the line. Here's a ten-dollar question, though.... what will be his inevitable repaint? Will it be a themed repaint, still bearing the name Hot Shot? Will it be another AEC Trilogy character? Or maybe, just maybe, would Hasbro/Takara consider slipping it into the G1 Classics line despite its AEC lineage?

    Personally I'm hoping for the latter... I think he would make a perfectly serviceable Stunticon. I guess that would leave the question of what to do with the minicon; he could still be thrown in as a bonus, logic notwithstanding... perhaps painted up as Tracer or Chain Gun.

    Hmm, so it seems Universe Hot Shot has painted side windows just like Takara's version.
    I'd still like to see some more good robot mode pictures to see if the leg kible can be stowed away a bit better.

    I'm thinking a themed repaint. Either in red with the flames as Powerlinx Hot Shot, or even in blue with a modified head as Cybertron Hot Shot, who was technically a different toy but I think close enough that it would work. And the mold will probably work in blue without being overdone like the Hot Rod deco.

    I'll definately be picking up U Ratchet. I just like the paint apps more than the henkei version. Not sure about Hotshot though.

    I think hasbro beat takaratomy this time in terms of paint design for Ratchet.
    But thats just me. I'm not a G1 fanatic ;P

    Also, hot shots mine as soon as a see one either online or in the store, he looks beyond excellent.
