These SHOULD of been released to the General Public
I mean I do not understand Hasbros thinking on this

I know my addicted ass would shell out that kind of cash for these to in a box set.

Something I would like to see Hasbro do for a hopeful regular release would be to refine the front windshield, instead of it being seperated into two. That and remold the heads a little bit to make their "helmets" look more distinct (give Ironhide his "mohawk" and Ratchet the V-shape on their heads).

These toys really show where the IDW designs come from.
Thanks for posting.

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.

They could of made alot more money if they had put them out in the mainstream
