    Am I missing something? Unless my reading comprehension skills have failed me, only the initial 150 figures are con exclusives followed by a regular release. This guy should be available through regular channels unless they choose not to carry it.

    What I would like to know is, I never cancelled my Pre-Order for this guy with BBTS (the eternal optimist in me KNEW this was going to come out. Haha! Take that, Negative Nancies!), so does that original PO get filled? Or will the post-Con pieces have to be purchased elsewhere?

    Yeah, my read on it is that the con-exclusives have unique packaging.

    Got this reply from BBTS regarding Animus

    Thank you for contacting us and I'll be happy to help. While that information sounds like we will be able to fulfill your Pre-orders, it is ultimately up to the manufacturer to fulfill the product solicit initially agreed upon between our company and theirs. I could not guarantee any Pre-order would be fulfilled, though I can confirm it has not been canceled by the manufacturer. Please let me know if you have anymore questions and I'll be happy to help. Have a great rest of your day!

    I really like having the Voodoo Ratchet and the Takara Ironhide w/ SF upgrades. The different designs help keep them from looking like straight repaints of one another. Really glad to see this is coming back to life, but not sure I'm still in the market for it, unfortunately.

    Man I've been waiting a long time for this. Never got the MP of Ironhide. Only looking to see how the headsculpt comes out because I don't think it's a repaint of the black version, or at one point it was different. At least I hope it's different.

    It'd be nice if the price were to be lowered to better match the product.


    While I love the design, it doesn't quite feel like the premium figure the original price made him out to be, at least not for the black version.

    I'm really happy! I liked the look of this figure from day 1 and was just waiting for the Ironhide colors... the preview of the improvements a while back (Paik4Life, I think?) made me VERY pleased... and then the cancellation. Like a lot of folks, I've been considering grabbing a Takara MP Ironhide, but now I will gladly wait so my Ironhide can be beefier than my Ratchet.

    I have zero complaints about MP Rachet, mind you... it's a good design and solid release, I just feel Ironhide deserves a bit more personal identity separating him from his historic mold-mate. This figure is a fantastic aesthetic compromise... so long as it doesn't turn into a pile of shattered parts in my hand. BETTER not...

    That's my great fear every time I transform Ratchet.

    Just got a free Salus off of Ebay thanks to my Ebay Bucks, and now eagerly await the upcoming Animus.


    All I need now is a Cliffjumper, Animus, and MP 10 (my GT Prime is a G1 stand in), and I'll have the full season one Autobot cast. :D

    I was a really big supporter of this back when, but when they cancelled it and I got the officials with the Shadow Fisher mods, it sorta put a bullet in this project for me. I really don't feel the need to replace the officials anymore but I'm glad for those who still want it.

    Sorta feels like the MMC Insecticons. A little late for the party for me to go "Oooooooo shiny!"

    i'd assume they fixed the ratchet joint issue w/ the wide A stance... i was asked to send them detailed info on the fix i came up with for it and assume they are going to incorporate it into this release... which they said they were going to do way back when i sent it over to them.

    just as a refresher to those that want to fix on their own...
