I'd like to introduce everyone's (un)favourite repaint of the year, Green Ratchet. This figure was available by mail order to the purchasers of Million Publication's "Transformers Visual Works" book. The price was 5200yen for one, 10000yen for two. The price included domestic shipping and CoD fee. Please note that I am not familiar with this mould at all. This is the first time I have had this toy in hand. I picked him up because, well, I could. Having said that, I was curious about this toy, so I decided to open the box and take a look. The cutout Ratchet head is still present, but it's still white (not pictured). They should have gone all the way and printed it in green as well. But I guess this will be an extra reason to keep the box intact Tech Spec is the same as Encore Ratchet. I thought Green version's own bio (found at the book publisher's site) was quite enjoyable. Anyway... As soon as I opened the plastic insert cover, very strong rubber smell hit me. Yummy. This picture shows him fresh out of the box. As you see the gaps are very apparent. Not owing other versions of this toy I don't know if this is normal. Hope someone will enlighten me. After transforming him, I decided that this is a very charming toy. He must have been more fun with Diaclone drivers. To me (who's been spoilt by the recent toys), this figure has no appeal as a robot toy, but I can imagine the fun which could be had with in scale pilot figures. I might want Ironhide now Thank you for looking.
