    I thought Doublecrosser was a market-based rename for Doubledealer but it\'s just a Battlemaster...

    I think a lot of people feel this way mainly because the differences between the two don't feel unique enough to justify them being all that different from each other.

    That said, I would also admit, out of all of them, the Ironhide/Ratchet Cybertron designs are at least somewhat visually distinct.
    Personally, I would possibly buy the earthrise Ironhide and then the Cybertronian version of Ratchet, who I think pulls off that design better then the Ironhide did.

    Damn, to collect all the seekers is always challenging :mad: 

    At least this is another option to consider.

    Anybody know if Some fuc☺☺ng guy is part of G1 or Beastwars or Transformrrs Armada. I never heard of him/her before, just thinking it could be a totally new character like Gigawatt, I just wanna clarify. Sounds really interesting. Is it an Autobot or Decepticon, It's definitely an interesting and creative name for a character. Not as good as Thundercracker or Optimus, but its close. So anxious to find out. Surprised there is not already a thread for Some fuc :) :) ng guy yet. People are usually eager to start a new thread, myself included.

    I would be happy to help anyone with the Takara Tomy MALL stuff for no cost, but I am not for sure it would be worth the hassle for you.
    First you have to pay up front as I dont want to get stuck with the bill, then you would have to wait till January till they come out, then I would have to ship it to you. Im fine with doing all that but I am not for sure it would save anyone any money really in the end.

    BUT again, if anyone needs help with the Takara Tomy MALL stuff I dont mind helping .

    Man, I just need to completely give up hope, but it's depressing to think that if this was Takara before they were *ahem* "de-balled" by Warden/Hasbro and forced to comply with the former's shit standards, it would have been fun to think about how Takara probably would have changed the head on Skywarp so he's not in permanent "O"-face. Maybe they would have tweaked the plastic color a smidge more to the pastel side too to make these even more screen accurate. I luckily (although not really, still getting swindled) had points to make this almost the same price it is in the US on TTMall, but it sucks that TT is charging about $100 for a figure set that is maybe worth the $59.99 US price... depressing times, depressing times... :( 

    Nah, they'll probably make us wait a few more months in Japan, because, oh, I don't know, cruelty?? I mean... it's the same exact shit as the US, that they're just slapping stickers on... c'mon. :banghead:  It'll probably release around March or April of next year :rolleyes2

    I know this is slightly off topic, but what did happen to Takara Tomy?

    Ratchet is an easy pass, what with the "[email protected]" paint on his legs and the strong possibility of an unblemished Earthrise version coming out anyway.

    Nope. I, for one only want toys without the amateur-hour paint apps, plus, I don't want to buy two versions of what is essentially the same figure.

    I'm sure, the latter reason is a fairly popular one in Japan, too.
