The first time we saw Transformers Siege leader class Galaxy Optimus Prime was in comic art, and it seems like our first look at Siege Ratchet could be on some card art. Hasbro is trying to keep a standard image throughout its transformers media and thus the cards have had a lot of Siege themed designs in their art lately. In the latest card reveals, we have an image of Ratchet on the Take Cover card (shown below) and that image shows Ratchet in an identical body to Siege deluxe Ironhide. So this could be our first look at the deco for the upcoming Walgreens exclusive Ratchet. The art shows him with a black crest on a white helmet, which is Ratchet's standard colour scheme in the G1 cartoon.

Wow, siege Springer continues to look like a piece of corn on Thrilling 30 Springer's turd. The decepticon voyagers continue to be the only decent figures in the whole line.

Luckily, it looks like I won't have to spend any more money on siege figures. I showed my kids the pictures, and told them they can get these, or more Lego sets.

They chose Legos. In the past, I'd have been sad, but I'm so disappointed by Hasbro's recent and current line ups, I'm happy not to give them more money.

He appeared in issue 4 of the comic in that body.

I want them 3 reflectors, but that means others will go without... And I want Brunt to fit out Trypticon of course.

Yeah, and while it's noticable enough to see that it is Siege Ironhides body, there are notable differences, especially in the shoulders. The comic version sports a red cross on the left shoulder, while this card version shows a red stripe on both. There is also some details on the shoulders that don't correspond with each. Plus, the card figure is in better lighting, which gives us more colors than the pale blue glow in the comic, plus we can see more in the card.

Thanks Nexus, glad to know newsing this wasnt a complete waste (hate when that happens). The fact that the comic has a red cross is a pretty clear indication that this card would be the more representative deco for the toy, since Transformers toys can't use the red cross anymore.

I was hoping that this find was at a Walmart store. Well hopefully they will hit Walmart's soon. :PRAY: :VEHI:

It would be rather early for Walmart. The release date for these toys is July 2019.

In the Past, Red Cross has given Ratchet heck over havibg Red Crosses on the shoulders of a "War Toy", zo for what we know this CPULD be a more accurate depiction of the toy anyway based on that

Anyone else hoping that Brunt will be recolored into a Slammer for Metroplex? I know he wouldn't necessarily be the "perfect" Slammer, but I think he would be close enough to fill out Metroplex's minions. Maybe in a 2 pack with a redecoed Sideswipe as Scamper?

True but considering how Galaxy OP and others hit shelves ahead of the scheduled release (I think) dates I thought I could be a bit hopeful. :VEHI:

And that's assuming they actually appear by July. Alot of stores end up not carrying new waves for at least a month, if not more.

That's weird, the more common version of the story I've heard is simply trademark infringement of the Red Cross logo... at least since the 2000's :???:

Speaking of crosses... I'm sorry, but the designers really need to stop detailing crotches so much. :oops:

It's both. It's a trademark and hasbro doesnt have the right to use it for the reasons given above:

This logo is trademarked by the organizations, who enforce the use of their marks heavily these days. Modern Transformers toys can no longer sport the logo, as it could be considered an abuse of the symbol's meaning. The red cross symbol was in fact incorrectly used on all of the aforementioned toys to begin with, since the symbol represents humanitarian organizations that normally don't operate regular urban ambulances.

A Slammer redeco would be close to the original comics inspiration.

Wouldn't hold out hope for a two-pack with a Scamper based off Sideswipe, since we're already getting a two-pack with a black and red 'Swipe.

We don't really need another Scamper, though. We have a perfectly good Scamper that comes with Titan Class Metroplex already, and it's a unique mold, not a retool of Sideswipe. Nothing says Scamper, Slammer, and Six Gun all need to be the same size class. Let's just be happy with a retool/repaint of Brunt into Slammer.

Doesn't it make more sense for a CYBERTRONIAN Ratchet to not have a Red Cross logo anyway? Or does the Red Cross secretly have a Cybertronian division?
