    I am very conflicted on whether to buy this ugly turd or not. Being a G1 completist is painful sometimes.

    If it was equivalent in price to the E-hobby black Ironhide, I'd bite. But the higher price attached to its higher exclusivity only serves to make it not worth it to me. I kinda like it; I just don't $150 like it.

    Not what I expected for over $100.

    I wonder if it will have the normal white Ratchet cut out head since its the same box? Probably. Can't wait to get mine! Black Ironhide too!

    Cancelled my pre-order a while back for both this and the ehobby black version.

    They are just not necessary and, to be honest, look bloody ugly :(

    Not fer me. When the Sunstorm toy came out, all I saw was 'that yellow seeker from MTMTE' and being a seeker whore, pre-ordered immediately. DW's meh characterization came later.

    E-hobby repaints that are Diaclone revisited elicit a similar reaction = WANT!
    Diaclone/G1 molds painted up like the 2007 movie = ...yeahbuhwhat? Want? Do not want? [​IMG]

    Can't wait to get him (via bbts pre-order) - should fit nicely in my 'diaclone' re-paint collection.

    I had this preordered with BBTS, but canceled it since I figured I might find a good deal on it at BotCon this year. That, and TFSource has it AND the Visual Works book at around the same price.

    :lol  Actually I loved Sunstorm. Only because when I was a kids I always wanted the 3 random seekers from the first episode, and they gave me the coolest one. I am also one of the few that loved Furman's take on him a DW.

    Yup, did the same thing, but I am skipping the book. Getting the Toy for that much less at TFSource is well worth paying upfront.

    I'm keeping my preorder, but things like this are what makes it tough being a completist.
