    OK so were getting one but is this [​IMG] hasbro or takara I don't know because there is no random crome and it's not cartoon accurate. Also the thing is fugly, I tried to think of what to do this is the closest I got I know its bad but I did it in 15 mins so shoot me. [​IMG] What are they doing with him, I'm scared.

    Personally I like him as-is, and hope that this is the Hasbro version of him. There are a good amount of signs pointing in that direction, though it could still end up being Takara's version. It's only a matter of time till we find out when Hasbro will finally make their own Ratchet. Oddly enough I think this here looks a lot better than either version of Ironhide. Something about the mold in mostly white makes it appealing to me. Even when the flash makes the white look worse than it will in person. Either way, I'll most likely get whatever Ratchet deco Hasbro gives us, and I might get Ironhide just to have both of them together, and to give Prime one of his "old buddies".

    i think this is takara's version...coz there's no universe ratchet announced as yet, so it'd be strange to have a photo of universe ratchet without there actually being a toy confirmed

    I can't think of any examples off the top of my head, but I'm willing to bet that this wouldn't be the first time we've seen pictures of a toy before there was any actual official info about it.

    Edit: Actually, now that I give it some thought, it was like this for some of the Movie toys. We saw pictures of them before we actually knew who some of them were, or even what size class they were (though some of that could be guessed from the pictures).

    This is the hasbro version, used for the henkei prototype shot. Why?

    The baby blue background was present in ALL henkei first shots, which were basically hasbro figures as placeholders.

    The baby blue windows on the sides; henkei would have them matching in colours with the clear windshield.

    No chrome on the visible parts that Ironhide had...

    I think the best thing to do is wait until e-Hobby adds a preorder image for Ratchet. They don't look like they are using placeholder images. Here's their pre-order page.

    My problem with him is that's not a "new head", like they were talking. It looks like Ironhide's with the crest (which if it's red, I'll be painting grey) sculpted on.

    And, actually, that's not as big of a deal as the white plastic not matching the painted white by any means!! :redface2:

    Well, yeah, me too.

    I'd rather have a crappy version than none at all.

    I can still b*tch if I want to, though. :p

    looks good to me, lol the only part i do not like is that they made his crest red, i wished it was black.

    but it looks good to me.

    QFT.

    Though I'm of the camp that doesn't necessarily believe that all things made by Takara are necessarily better.

    I know, I know, BLASPHEMY...

    As he's my joint favourite TF, I'll be getting both Henkei and Uni.
