    You could go with the Takara version if you don't mind the micron wart-like ports. They use stickers to fill in some of the missing details.

    I'm hoping for a Voyager to come out, but in the meantime, I'm just going to buy the Deluxe and add paint apps myself/wait for reprolabels.

    Watch the video he reviews its not a lack of paint its misused paint apps. The panels that go down behind his legs that make up the doors are entirely clear blue plastic all of the white and red is painted.
    I would have preferred white plastic so that some of that paint could be used for more highlights.

    For those of you that don't have him yet, the deluxe is amazing and a different story when you have him in your hands. Hasbro's photos do him no justice at all.

    That said, I'm hoping we do get a voyager that this is a dumbed down version of, which would make that figure a must own. Picked up a second Ratchet tonight to make a custom out of.

    im hoping big time for a voyager version, but until then the deluxe toy is certainly worth it. very fun figure and quite show accurate aside from a couple paint apps

    really do wish he had the heartbeat symbol at least. id've taken that over a couple of the robot mode apps, honestly

    outside of that i kinda wish his passenger windows were painted, and the rims [but the rims are easy enough to solve with a silver sharpie. little skill required for that one xD]

    if you see the deluxe, i say pick him up!

    Isn't Starscream getting Voyager RID release? Now that spot could have gone to Ratchet instead.

    I want those clear plastic gone as well.

    Starscream has much more instantaneous recognition. For a toy line that's only really starting, it makes sense to defer to him in a non-Deluxe price point.

    Can't deal with the scale. It's voyager or nothing for me.

    You guys do realize this is the best ratchet figure we ever got. This one is actually the most show accurate of any ratchet to come before it except for maybe the Animated one.

    Having said that, I would welcome a Voyager aka Powerizer Ratchet any day of the week.

    Oh I understand completely. I have zero ratchets to my name, in any line. It's just that most of the FE figures are so close to perfect, and this thing falls so far. Just a little more paint and a little more bulk and I'd be sold. I'm also passing on Megatron until we get one that's a little less plain.

    ...although it should perhaps be said, a Voyager may still cheat on the doors, and skimp on paint.

    I haven't had the fortune of picking up RID deluxe Ratchet yet, but from the reviews I have seen, I am eager to get him and have no doubt I will be perfectly happy. If the lack of paint detail bothers me when I get it, I'll do it myself or wait for repro labels.
