    While I don't really care about Springer (the botcon one works for me) Ratbat looks awesome and I can't wait to pick him up...somehow.

    Both look great, imo, and I'll definitely be getting this 2-pack.

    I HAVE to get that pack... Ratbat reminds me of the Armada remolds of Cybertron, really clever uses of some good molds (oh and Sideswipe's mold, too)

    I can't wait for these Target two-packs to hit, I love 'em both. Though I'll probably end up splitting them up, collection-wise.... Ratbat and Roadbuster will be going with Classics/Universe, but because I already have the Botcon versions of Springer and Dirge those two will probably end up in my AEC section.

    I'm SOOOO glad Hasbro saw the Ratbat potential in the Sideways mold. That is going to be a great figure.

    Those photos look like Hasbro stock photos.

    They are, which makes these auctions unreliable, imo. If the person selling the TF doesn't provide their own picture of what they are selling, then it's not worth taking the risk of being conned, again imo.

    I'm bidding on the Ratbat, if I win it I'll try and put up a gallery of it.

    I think I've warmed up to Springer, but Ratbat isn't thrilling me.

    Indeed. I would've been all over that Rabat auction, but I'm not placing a 1 cent bid until I see some original photography.

    Both those moulds are mediocre and completely forgettable, the Sprigner colours are nice, but Ratbat just looks terrible.

    Ya know, when people speak this negatively, they usually try to soften it by throwing out an "imo" :p 

    I dont own Evac, but I've heard many refer to him as "one of Cybertron's best." In their opinion :p 

    As for Ratbat, I do own Sideways, and I dont think it's forgettable or mediocre. After Animated Prowl and Classics Mirage, he's one of the most posable toys in the entire franchise. His design has a very sleek, bladelike look which makes him fairly unique among other Transformers. His alt mode isnt very good, granted, and I like Noisemaze's colors over Ratbat's, but I do think the mold works well for a War Within Ratbat, which is what it is.

    I'll happily buy this 2-pack. I'll probably be shelving Springer in favor of the Botcon Springer, but that's ok cos I'll be buying Blades for the same mold :)
