Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
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.

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:

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:

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

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.
