    I preordered in October an Encore Ratchet.
    BBTS just emailed me to tell me It was shipped on th 26th.

    Anyone else getting him or the Ironhide?

    I kinda liked the unique appearance of those two toys, although in a battle, Having a windshield for a face just begs someone to poke it with a sharp object or throw a rock at it.

    can't wait to add him to the fleet.

    Already have a decent G1 Ratchet but pre-ordered an Encore Ironhide from BBTS.

    Ratchet was one of the first TFs I ever got back in 1984(October), a birthday gift from my Aunt.

    I got my email earlier today that Encore Ironhide is on it's way from TF Source.

    It'll replace a vintage one that isn't in great condition for my display.

    I got those.... It was 80's so I can forgive the no face syndrome but nevertheless those guys are a steal now considering e-hobby exclusives are expensive.

    Next up is Skylynx.

    I had forgotten I had pre-ordered Encore Ironhide & Ratchet at both BBTS and HLJ. I got both shipped from HLJ for $66, and 5days later which I totally had forgot BBTS charged me $96 shipped for the same toys... talking about BBTS ripping you off... well instead I cancelled my order at BBTS and from the store-credit I bought 1/48 Mospeada Alpha Legioss AFC-01H (Blue) which was on sale:bowdown: .

    Anyway I have a vintage Ironhide, but no Ratchet and it's a fun little toy. I can't wait till both arrive from Japan.

    I'm passing. I've just hit on the personal decision that most toys are a waste of the metal and oil used to make them.

    Got em both drowning in my BBTS pile of loot. Cause of that, shipping on these was only an additional $3 to the pile's total. not too shabby. Here's hoping it isn't an actual "pile". :)

    If I weren't either poor, or spending my money on other things, I'd already have all the Encores that came out, and would be getting all the upcoming ones. I still want them all. I never had any G1 figures growing up. Closest I came was a friend giving me Rumble, Laserbeak and Ravage. :(

    Hmmm, not for me. I remember I had one as a kid and was always loooking for that part that popped up to make the head. When I couldn't find it I was kinda pissed hahah... damn that windshield!

    hehe Im not substituting a cardboard head for a TF no way jose. lol.

    but that green one would be nice to have lol. it would go with the constructicons nicely haha.

    Yep, an Encore Ratchet and the Black eHobby Ironhide, it'll be first time I'll own that mould. I have Sky Lynx preordered also.
