YouTube - DOTM Deluxe Ratchet
Looks like a nice figure... for a deluxe! Any word at all on a new voyager design?
I think we ARE getting a voyager Ratchet, but it's just a repaint of the same voyager we've gotten since the first movie.
Haven't gotten the vids to load properly, might be my connection. Does this figure surpass the rotf deluxe and tf1 voyager?
from his video id say yes it is better than all other versions.
I think so, yeah.
Exactly what I wanted in movie 3 Ratchet. Thanks for the review Peaugh. Only I did want him to be a voyager but thanks to Hasbro not giving me what I want I also get to save 10 bucks. Fine with me since he looks like a great deluxe.
awesome.I really want this figure.Plus,mechtech gun looks really cool.This Ratchet will look great with dlx Ironhide
He looks great. shame about the slightly hollow torso but really, a minor grumble as overall he seems very solid.
I really like this guy. Solid all around, not too thick or thin. I have completely gotten over the wheels on the shoulders. I actually quite like them now. His mech tech weapon rocks. I look forward to buying him.
This one is actually a nice suprise, from the looks of it. I'll be getting him, but I do hope that they release a new Voyager Ratchet mold. Maybe even an englarged version of this. If I remember correctly, he supposed to be taller than Bumblebee, but shorter than Ironhide.
Yeah, that's been a long standing problem every time Hasbro has tackled Ratchet. TF1 Voyager was much taller than Ironhide, and the ROTF deluxe was shorter than Bee, and much shorter than Battle Blade Bee. This mold, while much more accurately sculpted, still seems out of scale in that regard. A new Voyager Ratchet would be amazing, because it could then fit in scale with Leader Ironhide and any deluxe Bee. The problem is, due to Ironhide being rather stocky, anytime the duo are done in the same size class Ratchet comes out taller.
I could get behind a voyager sized KO of this...
Hmm, so his legs can straighten up, but they will still look like they're bent? Interesting. And with that new mechtech, he should be a whizz at emergency amputations.
How does he stand with the new voyager Ironhide? I got the impression from early, blurry pics that these two might be complementary size-wise.
hehe, ditto here!
the only thing i dont like about this figure is that it isnt voyager sized!
I really liked the HftD version, but this guy may replace him. I like nearly everything about this version.
hey peaugh, how does this dotm ratchet scale with deluxe bumblebee and dotm voyager Ironhide? Thanks
