    I was surprised in the beginning that they made TFilm Ratchet a greenish color (lime green-dark green). At first I didn’t think it fit him; Ironhide was black and that made him look hardcore, but Ratchet was more different than I thought he should have been. I was hoping he would be recoloured white/red, as such:

    But now I don’t mind it so much. I think it in some strange way suits him well: green is a militant color after all (befitting an army medic as Ratchet), and green is also connected with nature, specifically of the planet Earth (as a medic, Ratchet is devoted to preserving life). But I have to say they got the shade right only in DOTM, in the first two films he looked like he had jaundice.

    I like to think of him as "Baywatch Ratchet".

    Now a Human Alliace pack with a 90's Pamela Anderson figure needs to happen.

    What surprised me was that the DOTM voyager exclusive at Target was yellow instead of green, and was the same size as ROTF voyager figures. I think that was whack on Hasbro's part.

    He should have been in his DOTM paint scheme, minus the tattoos, and in scale with DOTM voyager Ironhide.

    Hell yeah. Even if he didn't come with Pam, I still want an HA Ratchet.

    It... it was the same mold as 07 and RotF Ratchet. They wouldn't shrink the existing mold.

    But I think he is so cool in this green color :)  I want to put a toy of him on the shelf along with Ironhide and Sideswipe to dilute their black and white company :) 
    I think his green color just underlines his engineering, not a medical specialty.

    You probably think it suits him now since you've seen it in 3 films otherwise you would have thought it suited him from the very beginning. I always thought it looked good. Then again I didn't get upset that everyone's precious Optimus Prime was getting flames.

    The DOTM voyager Ratchet IS in his DOTM colour scheme and is a straight repaint of ROTF Ratchet. That's why he's that size.

    I don't care about deco. He was always lacking that Chevron....The most defining physical trait for the charecter.

    Thanks for sharing, do you feel better now?

    Didn't you make a thread saying you would stop with the pointless threads? This just feels like you're trying too hard to look like hazekiah...

    Why do you call the movie TFilm instead of Transformers??

    On topic- I like both the green and yellow ratchet. I don't think red and white would've looked that good.

    Okay. And...?

    I liked his colour scheme, but if it meant less complaining by some fans, I'd have been all for a more traditional red-and-white colour scene.

    G1, TFA and TFP, yes. But not the films. And there's no "blue" in there to speak of. ;)

    I wish he kept his fluorescent yellow colour from TFTM. That was awesome.
