And it echoes my sentiments exactly. I preordered him a while back, and despite some doubts at the first scan, I am once again resolute in my support of the Decepticon's rightful leader.
I've been buying the BH deluxes by wave, so I'll probably do the same and get Ratchet, Dreadwing, and Skystalker in one go. I'll also lay odds they'll have another character in the wave, most likely Arcee.
Grimwing I'm kind of on the fence about, and I'm pretty sure I'll pass on both versions of Ultra Magnus and use PRID Magnus with the 3rd party Forge Dr. Wu's working on.
Passing on Ultimate Optimus, getting Ultimate Predaking. Getting a nice big army of Preds, so Hasbro, get to work on those redecos/retools of Ripclaw and Lazerback. For once I'm actually excited to buy a retool.
