    Does changing your IP location country with a VPN work for cases like this?

    Links come up on my end. Could it be a regional issue on your side?

    Links don't work for me either, but on my side it at least says it's not available in my country.

    I never bothered with the authentic one as I'm fine with my Siege Ratchet for my collection and found it way too small.

    There was a reason to get this guy but that's not important here, but said screw it and decided to go ahead with this figure.

    I knew that they had done several enhancements but curious so just watched a review (of the original Hasbro one) and it's crazy how much they did... All the gaps are filled, including the spring flap, the arms flaps, the paint and probably more.

    Dang, I may have to get the Ironhide.

    I just bought them on principle. I don't have the originals, and don't have an interest in such flimsy little versions of Ironhide and Ratchet. I don't know what to do with the OSKO versions yet, but they're too nice not to find something. :)

    I'm seeing it as one of the "(sub) 13" Prime's of my head cannon, as his size is close to Vector Prime and others... He'd be the leader of original mechanic/repair units or something like that.

    Not bad. He's huge, but because his alt-mode is abstract, he can wear the size well.

    :lol 

    Warrior School has a new ending this time. Who needs Dinobots?

    Easily found on AliExpress. Just ordered Ironhide..:p .
    Search for " sw warrior Ratchet ironhide " , this gave several results.

    Make sure that it's the OSKO as it can give you a few original Hasbro ones.

    And make sure that you balance the prices as some are cheaper but the shipping is as high as the price.

    TFsafari has both of them in-stock. Usually they are sold under the name "Shock Warrior"

    I won't lie... it is my least favourite part of these figures too.

    Not my preference, but... I mean, at least they HAVE recognizable faces, which makes them better than some Bayformers. :)

    Neither am I, but the BB figures are somewhat passible as they aren't as insect or monster or so over the top like the actual Bayverse ones that they aren't recognizable as an actual face.

    Exactly. I feel the faces in BB were like somebody looked at the Bay films and said, "Yeah, I get what you were going for but let's dial it back a bit."

    I've only bought football (soccer) shirts off DHGate without any issue.

    It's pretty much the same system as Aliexpress where the seller is paid once you confirm the item has arrived.

    I like a good OSKO The Voyager size of the old DX9 Legends Class/Core class size Ratchet was a nice example.

    I often wonder why they didn't at least do a Yellow one or something, even if they didn't feel like doing the remoulding to make Ironhide.
    Especially as Optimus got other releases ( I have the blue one somewhere ).
