    got him today.

    He is basically a repaint of the deluxe ratchet mold with no differences.
    But he is a nice base color for bashing into a g1 style ratchet(what i got him for)
    alt mode
    The colors are rather nice and not overpowering

    bot mode
    there are some strange color choices here.The yellow is out of place and the red is random.

    The tools are black but have yellow clips

    overall
    A ok repaint but nothing special.May be worth getting with the exclusive pack if the price is right.

    full gallery with comparisons will be up later.

    Definately a repaint I'm not even remotely interested in. That color scheme just seems to bother me.

    Not that I don't like the innitial release, but I kinda wonder why Hasbro and Cartoon Network decided to go with the red and white as opposed to this color combination for the show model. The green seems a little more suited for a kids show and toy series.

    I'll definately be picking him up. We don't get too much yellow transformers aside from BB.

    Congrats on the toy.

    I think I'll pass on Lemon Drop Ratchet though and wait for Butterscotch Ratchet.
