Well, tried to do that, but after I bought mine at the store, hurried home, it was too late, it's been shipped (and I had just checked my emails at the store, but couldn't cancel it from there).

So in a few days (shipping stated the 3rd for expected delivery) I'll have two.. I'll just return it unless someone on here in my area wants it.

And a few pictures for the heck of it.

Note that the "official" medical bay sucks, so I've done a modified version that isn't witchcraft. And FINALLY, a Siege figure that comes with extra accessories! (not a huge bunch but it's nice to have a few extras that works well)

Picked 1 up this morning @ Devonshire EBGames in Windsor, Ontario. Still 4 left after I grabbed mine. Also just an FYI some locations are sticking to the street date of Sept.1. Good luck & Happy Hunting.

Re: Transformers Siege EB Exclusive Ratchet Released at Retail

Ok, I have received my second one... if there's anyone in the Ottawa area that's interested and is having trouble finding one, let me know before the weekend, it's new and would just sell for the same price as I bought it.

Otherwise I'll probably just return it to EBGames.

You know what's weird? The instructions strongly suggest the shoulders "click" somewhere/somehow in officla medical bay mode. In reality they just sit beside, unattached to anything. Granted I get that it's kind of just a random configuration but it looks like SOMETHING should tab SOMEWHERE.

Are the arms similar on Ironhide? They don't really snap in somewhere. Pushing down on them to attach his accessories pushes them kind of "out" of the leg shells.

That said, I really like the toy in robot and vehicle mode. The whole basic layout feels more naturally "Ratchet" to me than IronHide. Heck, the new front end even makes him slightly bulkier, and the feet seem more appropriate to Ratchet than IH somehow. He looks great and I agree, I love the accessories.

Neither IronHide or Ratchet locks perfectly.

My Ironhide's leg covers refuses to lock in truck mode so I have an angle gap... been considering buying another to switch it.

My Ratchet is the side cover section that refuses to lock (where it should next to the front wheel).

I don't see anywhere that the arms lock in robot mode at all, so that's is, once again, something that gives me that "well, it's not perfect but it'll sell like this, so good enough" feeling from the engineers.

But I will admit that the moment I saw images for Ratchet, I knew that I'd really like it.. he is absolutely great looking, the first and only Ratchet that I've ever bothered getting.

The Siege line has finally done a lot of figures "right".. which only took them 30+ years. *sigh* And the only line that I felt compelled to actually get most of them if not all.

I will admit that the hit of recent releases and announcement of minimal remolds and recolors has broken that feeling.

So now I'll be slowing down and only get the figures that I deem worth getting... too bad for Hasbro. They started great but are losing me with this sort of thing. I wouldn't mind a few such remolds and recolours, but at 30$ and up, I feel like they really could have put more effort.

Even these guys (Ratchet/Ironhide), I do like them a lot, but still, a bit more effort would have been nice.


More eye candy for the alt medical bay mode.
