    Got mine a couple of days ago. I quite like the little bloke, even though mine has two left hips. Doesn't affect anything but the appearance though, so no biggie.

    I'm sure Rattrap would be quite offended by the recent add-on kit that suggests his great aunt would walk around minus her torso plate like some skanky serving bot.

    Crap...now that you mention it, mine has two left hips as well. I wonder if TE can send a replacement part.

    Maybe Rattrap might ask his auntie to hold him like an infant in her state of undress ??

    Got mine in today. Tiny transformers are always so much better in hand than in pictures. He's even smaller than the Toyworld TM Megatron. Mine has some paint blemishes here and there, but nothing egregious. I really like this thing. He's the size of an actual mouse. Decently poseable, but I don't know why they gave him ankle pivots but no wrist joints.

    Is it just mine or does rattrap have the worst torso connection in the history of transformers? Not only does it not securely lock it in place, you risk damaging the mouse nose trying to get it locked, and even when you get it manipulating the head or the legs will cause the torso to come undone.

    I've probably said this before but I really hope they do Cheetor soon. He's the only one of the O5 that doesn't have a decent modern figure at a non-MP size. The original Cheetor mold just doesn't look good enough next to Robomasters/Telemocha Primal, Henkei Dinobot, Generations Rhinox, and Transform Element Rattrap.

    Also then they could get another figure out of it with an upsized remold into Tigatron, just like the MP did.

    Is Kingdom Rattrap going to be bigger than TE Rattrap?

    This should be the difference in size

    In no hurry to replace mine.
    I hope TE isn't throwing in the towel. Kingdom Rattrap, BA, and Cheetor do look very nice, but TE Rattrap still looks better and TE Scorpy will look amazing and have a plethora of extras.

    Yeah based on what I've seen TE will be about 0.25" shorter maybe. Not much, so TE should be able to work with the other Kingdom characters sizewise. I'm definitely not in a rush to replace him with Kingdom rattrap. I might still pick him up since he is only $10 but not because TE doesnt work. It is going to be a decision though with the other characters that TE hasnt made.

    Yeah, glad I held off on this one. The TE Rattrap was just a tad too pricey to me. Also the BA didn't wow me either
