    I doubt any customizer skilled enough to apply the paint that cleanly would do such a half-assed job on the color blocking, detailing.

    So, i'm inclined to say it's real.

    But Why..... won't...this... mold... die?

    Maybe it's a store exclusive?

    Unless there's a new Ratchet mold in the offing, which i very much doubt, no more movie Ratchets for me.

    Why are they still using it (if it's official)? It needs a new Voyager mold.

    Where's the Mechtech?

    That mold's gotta be cheese by now. Why aren't they making a new one?

    For real. Especially if the painting-color molding will end up making the toy look like this. Honestly, if I were to make a custom to make that paint scheme, I think it may just be better to repaint the whole thing. Given that case, I wouldn't have to get a new one for that either. I could go to Wal*mart right now and buy a Ratchet that's still on the shelf.

    why didn't they just repaint the superior deluxe mold? :lol 

    on second thought; why did they bother to repaint it all together? hell don't even repackage it, just put the first movie one back on the shelves! :lol

    i think its fake. No mechtech from the looks of things. I find it weird why hasbro would sell a repaint of a shelfwarmer. You'd think they would of caught on not many people liked that voyager.

    Where's the Mechtech

    And ratchet looks great I might pick up this one too

    There something really going on between the ark and the autobots I wonder if they all have the Prime symbol, maybe they all go to the moon after all to find out about that ship on the moon.

    Those cybertronian symbols look hand painted. God I hope that this thing isn't an official repaint, it's damn hideous. And Cliff Prime, your sig is very creepy.
