Grabbed my Off Road Patrol at Amazon. I remember someone in the forum mentioning them being on Amazon, but I couldn't find the post later and couldn't find them searching Amazon so I'm glad these turned up in the news. I also picked up Soundwave, I've only seen him in stores twice when he first came out and haven't seen him since in stores. Prices online (when you can find one) haven't been good so it was nice to see Amazon finally selling them for MSRP.

I do wonder what's going on with Amazon's prices. Not the Amazon sellers, but actual Amazon. They're usually really good about keeping prices at MSRP, but they've been selling Soundwave at $32.99 for the longest time and they've never had Sideswipe for less than $24.53 for no real reason.

And I really have to wonder what Hasbro is thinking only putting Soundwave in one wave even though there are more tapes coming. So far Soundwave and Apeface (for obvious reasons) are the only ones in only one wave so maybe they'll get a revision wave after wave 4?

Wave 1: Optimus Prime and Megatron
Wave 2: Soundwave and Starscream
Wave 3: Thundercreacker and Springer
Wave 3 Revision 1: Starscream and Springer (only seen this one myself)
Wave 3 Revision 2: Thundercracker and Megatron
Wave 4: Optimus Prime and Apeface
Hopefully Wave 4 Revision 1: Apeface and Soundwave

Will they have time for a revision wave before the next part of the trilogy hits?

I believe Springer/Thundercracker case was cancelled no?

Thanks! Tried it now, it worked immediately. Held it in a glass of hot water pushed to the side for a few seconds and voilà!

No, this in reference to one of Skyfire's jet effects.

Oh. My bad. Somebody was talking about crooked antennas over there...

To that end, though, my blast effects weren't crooked. My BOX was a bit mashed, but the blast effects were fine.

That was me, too!

MP-44 hasn't arrived yet, but if the antennas come defective I don't think I will try to fix them myself. It's too precious a piece, Takara or Amazon will have to make it right.


Skyfire is so awesome, I don't understand the light-piping though. He's got a backpack behind his head, better they had painted them.
And since he's kind of made like a Masterpiece I would have liked a smiling face plate, too. :))

I THINK they were hoping the clear panel in his forehead would allow light intovthe head, but that didnt work. They needed to do what thwy did woth Shockwave and put it on top of his noggin.

Shockwave's is the only light-piping I like, really. It's almost as though he's got an actual light-bulb in his head.

Honestly, I hadn't noticed. I've just been having him blast Megatron over and over with his double-barrelled Particle Beam Cannon (not whatever idiotic name is on the instruction sheet).

I could have gone for extra faces. He did tend to smile or crack jokes a lot on the show, so yeah...I could see that.

My only beef is my Skyfire’s faceplate won’t stay on. The spring won’t stay it just pops it back off. God I want to take him back for like this one reason but I’ve always loved just sticking with the one I got I’m sentimental like that.

If I don’t love this poor Jetfire who will? :lol: and it’s like sonic welded too I can’t unscrew it and fix it I’m left resorting to a clear rubber band. Can’t really notice it but of course I do. It’s like a Rambo vibe. At least it’s not totally broken.

Everything else is so much win. Yes it’s expensive but you definitely get what you pay for. Absolutely. It’s totally an MP Skyfire to me.

With Ratchet being out in Canada, I figured I could take some images to show just how different this mold is from Ironhide. The retool connotation has been outdated for ages now and the advent of computer aided drawing meansthe actual mold doesn't need to be retouched to give something new. You can some parts at the design level and then mix and match the existing and new molding. Which is why while Ratchet may look similar to Ironhide at first glance, the amount of new parts outweighs the amount of parts shared with Ironhide (which is mainly the chest, feet and back of the legs).

Below you will see the difference in parts for Ratchet's head, shoudlers, chasis, wheels, pelvis, vehicle "grill", front of legs (inner molded detail is different as well), hands and forearms. The later are asymetric since one of his forearms has four extra tools molded in as detail for the medeical bay mode.

If my Walmart would bother stocking Transformers, maybe I'd be able to get a Ratchet too.

Picked this up in Lincoln, Nebraska a little over a week ago. Gotten all the new stuff here except for Battlemasters - Still on Wave 1 of that.

Also, all of our Galaxy Primes disappeared overnight. We HAD a bunch of them. Now they're just gone. And right before Target canceled my (5x delayed) preorder.

Thanks William-James! I’m so excited for Ratchet I can’t wait to get him. I didn’t know about the tools on the forearm that’s so cool.

Back 35 years ago Ironhide and Ratchet were two I dreamed of having with the sled/bay and the chrome I thought they were so awesome but I never got them. Time to rectify ;)^

Wouldn't do you any good if your Walmart did stock Transformers, since Ratchet is a Walgreens exclusive.

-Kanrabat- is Canadian, I don't think there are Walgreens there. Instead, Ratchet was found there at EB Games:

He's in Canada, though. Still, Ratchet is an EB Games exclusive there.
