    Well, I think red is hard to film, which is why Prime had flames, so they went with the version that could be clearly seen. I for one think the version that they went with looks more appealing than the concept art version myself.

    Yeah, the red & white concept would've been cool to see. Not to mention we'd have no "Is Rachet Green or Yellow?" debate.

    Yes, on the Disc two, Bay was saying the reason Prime wasn't a red truck was because Red is so hard to film. And the flames he thought 'made him look like Prime had ribs".

    Eh, I personally like the version we got, and think the concept version looks extremely bad.

    in the end, it was decided that they needed more of a variety of colors in the autobots, so they recolored ratchet because they sure as heck weren't gonna change prime.

    What's hard to understand? The first one looks like a soulless gundamn toy. The second one looks like an actual sentient being, with character and a physique that's far less...manufactured. Ratchet V01 looks like he came off a Japanese assembly line.

    I like the final version seen in the film than that concept art. The red and white just dosent do it for me on that look of Ratchet. Plus Red is hard to photograph.

    its funny because if the red one was chosen and the green one was the rejected concept we would be reading this same thread only the question would be asking why the green concept was rejected in favor of the red one

    While you have a point, it would be very less promient as it would shut all the GEEWUNers up a bit.

    As much as I hate to agree with Spanbauer, he's right.

    I like the red one a lot more. AT least with the red one you can tell whats a mouth and eyes instead of peering at it trying to make head from tail. I also like the way they put a twist on Ratchet's G1 crest. Its obviously much changed yet still retains the original character. I also much prefer red to lime green as a color for Ratchet.

    I don't like the green but I think Ratchet is the best movie bot.
