What?


"eat at" is what happens when a person's fingers slip on a QWERTY keyboard. 'e' is next to 'r', and the space key is below 'b'. It's supposed to be 'ratbat' but the poster missed.

Uggghhh...That tail !!!

It looks like when a lizzards tail breaks off and he has a stump. Will he grow a new one. Ratbat pre-ordered. Not so much that I like the IDW character, but I like the mold.

Am I correct in assuming that everything on Ratbat is a paint application and not a sticker? Takara's recent sticker-craziness has left me a bit paranoid...

That's what I was thinking. But it's been so long since I'd purchased from Takara, I couldn't remember where the line was drawn for sure. And that chest looks a bit sticker-y. Anyway, preordered :D

I think this Ratbat would make a good Leozack custom. The head just screams LZ to me.

Only the Arms Micron line of Prime has stickers, it's all part of the DIY/customising approach that's all the rage among younger kids in Japan.

Grimlock is still rather meh and IMO not worth buying, but that Ratbat looks really nice.

He's a retool of Generations Scourge. In the G1 cartoon, Scourge had two animation models for both vehicle and robot modes. Occasionally, the older one would be used by accident, and it's the older one that had the head sticking out in the back. The feature is an intentional callback to that.

As a big fan of what IDW has done and is doing with the franchise's history and lore, that Ratbat deserves a place of my desk, out of any displays (as it doesn't really fit it in anywhere else).

Yes, I might preorder him, in his shiny shiny purpleness. Luvly.

Ok, I'm going to ask this here, out of curiosity:

When you see a new release, do you try appreciating it for what it is, which character it represents, and its pros and cons, or do you only see the potential for something else?

I'm not trying to attack anyone, just asking after those last comments!

(Also because I really just see Ratbat in that figure, and I like seeing Ratbat. :-( )

I've pre-ordered him because I like him as he is. I do mod tfs, but only to cheap ones I find on sale. I'd never spend £30 on a deluxe, just to repaint etc.
Maybe I see potential for repaints etc because of my modding/repainting eg Runabout & Runamuck from movie Sideswipe (the silver/red with 2 guns ver) that I got for £5 each. I see a bargain and just start getting ideas of who else that mold would work well with.

I'd maybe take a mold of Ratbats head, and try and find a cheap scourge.
