    My preference. A WFC Ratchet would be too big for my collection. I hope I can buy Inferno and Paradron Medic on their own.

    I would buy the crap out of a leader Ratchet with MARB. It ain’t gonna happen, but I can dream.

    Too bad it didn’t say Red Alert so we could give Hot Shot a buddy...

    Watch it be a pointless repaint or a misnamed item and we all go "Oh, wow."

    For real. Transformers has been a bit of an afterthought in Fan First Friday.

    I have not, for a few different reasons.
    1. I haven't been at work recently, because of the virus.
    2. I have to lay low, Hasbro has spies here in the forums and got me in deep shit. They pretended to be someone in my area asking what figures my store had in stock.
    This is the first I've heard of another leader class. Also I personally would take this screamo guy with a grain of salt. He looks like he had a screw loose.

    Though he did give us a lot of rumor this thread has before this particular thread was given, and some of those came true

    A "leader" Ratchet that's his bot mode and "sled" from G1 would be the kind of thing Hasbro/Takara *should* do with Earthrise.

    I think it's possible (one could ask if they cared) that the listing that was seen had Ratchet in the title and the price was $50. That doesn't necessarily mean it is a leader class Ratchet; it opens up the possibility of a (for example) "Ratchet Emergency Pack" that has Cordon and MM pair of emergency vehicles (or a Soundbarrier redeco in white, whatever). It'd be helpful to see the actual listing that was seen

    Oh?

    What was the cost of the Prowl/Ironhide set that leaked? Because I could also see a Voyager Ratchet with his sled and a second Deluxe.

    Leader Ratchet would make no sense (the character is neither marketable enough nor physically large enough to warrant it), so I'll agree with those guessing the listing is just based on pricepoint.

    In which case, maybe Ratchet and Ironhide will both be released in different two-packs? Ironhide & Prowl pack is already confirmed. So presumably Ratchet would also be packaged with a deluxe? And likely a mold that would be used for another character outside of the two-pack... Bluestreak? Red or white Sunstreaker? Arcee repainted as another fembot? That Hubcap that we've already seen?

    I just really hope they knock this Ironhide/Ratchet mold out of the park. I like both characters but I still don't own a G1-style version of either one, because I haven't been impressed with any of their figures so far. Very curious to see these guys!

    Hubcap is a selects and the leak we have for bluestreak has him as a solid case, so he’s likely the Walgreens exclusive

    So, I'm probably not the first to bring up this possibility but: what if the "Red" portion of the Wal-Mart Red listings is a reference to the color of the boxes of their 35th anniversary subline from last year? If that's the case, I suspect that that it'll be the same deal this time around, minus the 35th anniversary branding, of course. Hell, maybe it'll even be called the "Red' series. Regardless, I totally believe the recently leaked WFC: Soundwave repaint/retool is the Red Soundwave, which means he's not included in this Leader class Ratchet box set.

    Personally, my bet is on Inferno being the other figure in the box. They fit together thematically, as they're both rescue vehicles, and Inferno is the only voyager class retool we're presumably getting this year that has yet to get a listing - other than the other two coneheads. And I don't think it's one of the cone-heads either, because I'm still betting on them being part of another two-pack.

    I'm pretty sure ALL of them came true. Even Mercenary Bu, who turned out to be Bugbite. So the dude's track record is completely solid, despite his relative obscurity.

    ok.. after going back several pages, all I see are speculations. Is there any actual news about TrU inventory that's new?

    Heck, they still aren't even listing Scoponok or Skylynx at this point, where for last year's Jetfire and Omega, I already had my pre-order done (on sale too) by this time of the year.

    But then, their site has gone to crap since their redesign, heck, my account is still a mess after over 6 months.

    I’m throwing in my prediction...

    Ratchet with Roller (a weaponizer).
