Release these as Classics, Hasbro. You WILL make money by doing so, especially if angered Transfans like myself are not going to buy any Movie toys.

I once read that self deprecating humor is a sign of intelligence.

Great galleries, I would love to get those two but has others said the $100 asking price is a bit much.

Come on Hasbro, repaint the Seekers to fill in the gaps and throw these bad boys in and we got another wave for the Classics.

Honestly? It all came out of little ol' Classics Legends Jetfire and Titanium Starscream. No matter what setting I used on my camera, I couldn't get a decent picture of Jetfire. There's something weird about the type of plastic used on that little guy that he was hard to photograph. Titanium Starscream happens to just be that weird shade of whitish gray that he was bleeding into the background as well. I figured since I've been wanting to do Masterpiece Ultra Magnus and Botcon Ratchet and had Masterforce Minverva enroute from Asia (who should arrive tomorrow or Thursday) that now would be a good time to temporarily switch to the black backgrounds to do all of these white figures. When I did the photos of Polar Claw, there was a setting on my camera that I wasn't using which made the black backgrounds look pretty terrible. I've figured out that setting and generally white figures are OK now but the same setting applied to the black background makes it look pretty awesome as well. After I finish the galleries of Minerva and Masterpiece Magnus, I'll switch back to using a white background. It's kind of a pain in the ass to swap backgrounds so I'll just do a run of figures with the black in the meantime.

Never gonna happen. Can you imagine how pissed the fans would be that bought a BotCon exclusive figure only to have it released in the main line? Yikes!

I actually decided to put Ratchet and Ironhide ahead of a lot of other figures because of the unusual number of emails I received inquiring about the Botcon Ratchet figure that I cameo'ed in the Movie Ratchet gallery. People didn't know what line the figure was from so I decided that I'd give those people a treat by doing a rush gallery of him since I had the black background up.
