    Yep, I want the Agent. If the pre-order is not over priced, I’ll cancel my Tracks Pre order and hang on for the Agent.

    Even the front cheetah mode legs are new since they're on a ball joint at the "shoulder" and it's a universal joint on Cheetor

    I don't think this is a premold for BW Tigatron, considering everything that's changed to make it Ravage would have to be changed again to make it Tigatron. However I could see it being reused as a Transmetal Tigatron as another exclusive down the line

    No, no, no @Leolim, that could result in a... Great scott! Ravage could conceivably encounter his future self! The consequences of that could be disastrous!

    I foresee two possibilities. One, coming face to face with himself 30 years older would put him into shock and he would simply pass out. Or two, the encounter could create a time paradox, the results of which could start a chain reaction that wold unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe! Granted, that's a worse case senario. The destruction might in fact be very localized, limited to our own galaxy.

    I just hope it's on a date I can book off. My Boss told me there are certain days in September right now that I can not book any days off.

    There’s certainly a ton of retooling, but no. Cheetor’s front legs are very much on balljoints, with the socket appearing to be exactly the same size and position. Note the placement and size of the little flex slot. [​IMG] The legs appear different because of misassembly. Ravage seems to have hos right and left legs swapped. All that said... Shared beast legs does not kill my excitement about this figure in the slightest.

    I thought Quintesson Pit of Judgement is the best boxset ever in the history of transformers. I was wrong. It’s second best to this one.

    That's an awesome set!! :D 
    I have the 3P BW Ravage with magnetic guns but still going to get this. It might stay in package though.

    I'm going to get this one, transform it and keep it as fscking kity.

    I don't like the cat legs hanging down the back in biped form at all, but the biped arms are super well hidden and that is one sleek panther.

    That's odd, I could have sworn they were on hinges. I haven't looked at mine in a while

    His legs are kind of odd in that way. While they're on balljoints, those balljoints coming out of his main body are on a redundant rotational joint themselves, which sort of gets in the way of the balljoint's range of motion a bit.

    Good idea but I'd be curious to see it next to X-9.

    The TM Cheetor mold is much superior imo.

    P.S. The whole Transmetal line was A-MA-ZING!!!

    By your username, I can tell you're a Ravage fan too ;) 

    (far left is the new 3P Beast Wars Ravage... guns are magnet and stick to legs - has a beast mode and alternate hands, poseable tail, etc...)

    We would like to see a figure of him alongside Terrorsaur, Inferno, Quickstrike, Depth Charge, Rampage, and Tigerhawk.

    Pulsecon exclusives work no different than other Pulse reveals, basically.

    If it's like last year (the only prior Pulse Con we had), the dates will be advertised well in advance (in this case 1 November). Last year Pulse Premium members got an entire day to put in their orders prior to the general public getting a go at everything the following day, order quantity restrictions were in place to discourage/prevent scalpers/bots from clearing stock out.

    A good portion of the exclusives that sold out continued to get restocked throughout the months following, with some still in stock like PR Lord Drakkon, and others recently shipping a fresh restock out to folks who ordered well after the fact like the Quintesson Pit.

    Of course this is Hasbro/collecting/etc. so there's no guarantee things will run the exact same way, but last year had a pretty decent system in place.
