    HELL YES! WE WILL HAVE ALL 5 AUTOBOTS BY THE END OF THE YEAR!

    He looks pretty good. Only thing I don't like is the backpack, which is mistransformed in a lot of the official photos anyways. I guess it's less of a "backpack" and more of a "the upper body is too bulky" but I'm still just so excited for this to happen!

    EDIT: After looking at him a lot more, I think it's actually less about the bulk of the torso as it is the size of the head. Movie toys have always suffered small heads since their CGI proportions have always been more human and less "human wearing a bunch of bulky armor" like older designs. Bee, Jazz and Prime especially should have bigger heads on their MPMs.

    Looks like he will be about as tall as Ironhide. I'm very happy with the tire placement and the general kibble management. Really looking forward to him :)

    Those kibbles on the legs really ruin the silhouette.

    Ah, yes. Movie Ratchet. Who had such memorable lines like, "The boy's pheromone levels suggest he wants to mate with the female." and...uh, "what's wrong with you humans?!"? :D 

    No, but seriously, I'm happy for the movie fans who can finally complete their 2007 Autobot cast in Masterpiece form. Aside from maybe old school Camaro mode Bumblebee.

    Thanks for the heads up! Correct me if I'm wrong, but MPM Starscream (also a Target exclusive), never went up for pre-order on Target yet, right?

    Anyway, I made the mistake of watching the live reveal video first, where he was mistransformed as hell and gave a terrible first impression. Then I saw the images and watched the stop motion video and boy is he a thing of beauty. They really nailed almost everything about the design, which is impressive given that he is the most cheat-y of the movie 1 Autobots. The shoulders are perfect and that is an area previous Ratchet figures have struggled with. I'm curious as to why the back seems mistransformed in half the official photos.

    Pre-ordered, can't wait until October!

    These are tough times... I've sold 3 of mine this month...

    Ratchet looks nice. My thoughts are pretty much the same as Starscream, Jazz, Megatron etc. Looks great, but the budget deco on the MPM line is embarrassing at this point. If the lime green on Ratchet turns out to be bare plastic and not painted then that's really, really sucky.

    Still, it'll be nice to complete the Movie 1 Autobot cast.

    I think Jazz is the only perfect mpm so far.

    Goddamn if they added more paint to SS it would be an easy win. Pass for me until 3P fixes his obese proportions, that awful shoulders and chest. If Black Apple can salvage Ironhide and pull a 180 on that mold then they can fix this too.
