As usual, the Transformers Asia (which excludes the Japanese market, covered by Takara Tomy) will be accompanying its release of Masterpiece MP-30 Ratchet with a collector coin depicting the figure, and in an envelope mimicking the same deco and pattern as the toy - check it out below, courtesy of Facebook page ToyScope!

I do like a nice collector coin. I don't know why, I don't do anything with them just put them in the figures box.

Just paid for mine. Looks like he sold out on HLJ like Ironhide.

Just got my payment request through HLJ. Lets see if he can live up to the awesomeness that is the mold.

Mine's on the way! Can't wait and still can't figure out why he looks so much better than Ironhide to me.

White hip panels blend with white thighs better than Ironhide's red with gray thighs. I think at least, and the majority of the figure is white too which helps the eyes :lol:

When you think about it, it's kind of funny that we buy the same toy again (pretty much,) because it represents a different character on the cartoon. :lol:

Maybe you're a crest - not mohawk - man. ;)

It's the G1 in all of us, cause that's where the repaints started (well Diaclone..but more G1). I also find it funny that I get annoyed with repaints/retools in other lines sometimes but don't question it on MP. I think the Bayverse stuff may have angered me, with first release then premiums, then 80 Bumblebees. :lol:

Man, I SO want them to make a Marvel comics Ratchet redeco, like how they did for King Grimlock.

Wow, it's really not going to be that hard to give him proper cross stickers on the shoulders, is it? The only way to make that easier is to include a pamphlet on how to use a pair of scissors

I draw the line at Decepticons jets who aren't Starscream. :) (Though I don't have him yet either, heh.)

When I first saw pics of him I was all "Oh yeah, this is MUCH better than Ironhide!"

Then I got Ironhide in hand, and looking at those pics I just see a sea of white.

Got a long way to go to beat Ironhide Ratchet! I might just have to bite the bullet and have you shipped on your own.

I got Ironhide today after much much thinking and near ordering and backing off-and I was right, the mold irritates me :( Just looks odd.

The super cartoony blue windows on Ratchet just add to me simply not caring about these 2. I mean, Ironhide is here now, but had I never ordered him I wouldn't be missing anything :(

I'm extremely excited for this. I just got my soon in stock pre-order notice from BBTS. I also bought Ironhide on release. I understand its the basically the same mold but its just too major of a character to not want it for completion of a G1 Masterpiece collection. I think the white makes a pretty big visual difference on the mold and the character doesn't look like "White Ironhide".

The mp line has been sooo good this year I gladly will pay to keep Takara churning new MPs out. I mean we've had like 4 sweet releases in just the first 4 months of 2016.

They've been making insane progress on the MP characters but i cant wait till Jazz, Galvatron and maybe a Beast Wars Scorponok or Tarantulas get a shot at getting a MP-##.

I'm going to pass this one. I'm glad I skipped Ironhide and bought Shockwave instead. Of course, Masterpiece Shockwave is way overpriced, but at least he looks perfect.

Anyone else choosing to use the smile face more than the no-expression face?

That's what I'm doing. Happy Ratchet FTW :KREMZEEK:
