    Loving the look of all these newage bots. Almost like tiny masterpieces.

    They are pretty much perfection for as tiny as they are. What more is there to say?

    Agreed. Totally blows HS Ironhide and Ratchet away. I never got those two because I couldn't stand the door panels on their arms extending past their hands.

    The only shame is these guys are definitely going to be too small for my legends+ collection. I can accept small carbots (they're supposed to be small) but from those group shots, it looks like these guys are barely taller than their carbots at all.

    Yup! Hot soldiers out the window. I don't mind their size much, hopefully they'll be about as tall as IF carbots and they'll blend right in. Never understood why they ought to be bigger than carbots, those 80s vans were small vehicles compared to today's ambulances and Escapades.

    This will be the 3rd and last time I replace these two in my legends collection.

    It's amusing how they look better than the MP ones. No hip kibble crap.

    These little guys from NewAge seriously look like MP quality hit with a shrink ray. It's a shame they're all paired with Dutch so far and his abysmal averageness.

    I'd like Ratchet and Ironhide more if they had some foot/toe bend to go with the tilt. That's all they're missing that would make them perfect.

    Seriously. I got the Shadow Fisher add-on kit and my Ironhide still looks a bit wonky, AND suffers from that chrome rub. Eff-that. I'm replacing it with this. EASY buy.

    Well, that pair is awesome. There's no other way to describe them.

    You're replacing an MP scaled Ironhide with a Legends scale one?

    I can't be the only one who realizes they swapped the names, right? McCoy HAS to be Ratchet.

    I hadn't made that connection. Who is Miller named after then?

    Huh. Well that's random. I mean Ratchet is an ambulance so I guess it makes sense. Kind of. There've been some 3p names that have really been out there but damn that's a weird one.

    Now that I think about it, I have no idea what any of NA's names are referencing other than their Megatron - Agamemnon.
