    This is about the TF: Prime toyline.

    I've seen people wish for voyager versions of both Ratchet and Soundwave. But if only one of them was a possibility, which one would you choose and why?

    Easily Ratchet. He's got more bulk that would fit the Voyager size better. Soundwave being so skinny would seem like a rip-off in a Voyager size.

    Ratchet; he's one of the few Autobots that don't fit in scale with the others. The Decepticons haven't even all been released yet...

    Ratchet if only for the fact that the Decepticon Voyagers will be outnumbering the Autobot ones.


    Not that that's a bad thing.

    This is a toss up for me. I voted Ratchet because like others have said here he is sorely out of scale. However I think Soundwave could benefit from a voyager treatment by fixing the leg kibble issue that snags up on the deluxe.

    Soundwave, so it would be scaled with Voyager Starscream, Voyager Breakdown, Deluxe Knockout, blablabla

    Ratchet. I also got a nice idea for his gimmick. Ditch the stupid see through arms and give him a removable hollow backpack and you can store like.. cybertronian medical equipment in it :D

    While I like both deluxes, my choice was Soundwave. Looking at Starscream's voyager, I thought there was a lot of details that would really shine if SW was redone in voyager-size. Ratchet seems good enough as a deluxe, and he's not that much shorter than he should be, assuming you do care about scale.

    I think they're fine as deluxes...but if I had to choose one it would be Ratchet. I think he could benefit from the bigger scale and more engineering. It could help with the front half of the ambulance hanging off of his legs.

    Although I long for the day they release Ratchet as a Voyager, I still long for him period. I think he is the greatest character on Prime and I am a huge fan of his VA's work.

    I have SW and need and really want Ratchet so my opinion is extremely bias. Go for Ratchet. Although I voted that both are fine as deluxes.

    Soundwave as a deluxe is to scale with P:RID Voyager Megatron in robot mode.
    So I am going to go with Ratchet for the one needing the upgrade to hopefully his
    proper size.

    That would look terrible. I'd rather it cheat.

    Cheating in Ratchet's case is very necessary. The doors on his chest are shrunken, and unless Hasbro can create plastic that can shrink and expand again, it just ain't gonna happen. I'd rather it cheat and have it look good than not cheat and have giant ass doors on his chest.

    Personally, Ratchet. He deserves a big, intresting transformation to get a more accurate robot mode.

    Soundwave would be an upscaled deluxe, with nicer legs and potentially see through arms.

    I'd love em both, but ultimately, Ratchet would gain more than simply being bigger from the scale up.

    What I would love would be Ratchet as a voyager, and Soundwave as a Cyberverse Commander. Because small Soundwaves are epic.

    I want to see Ratchet as a voyager and Soundwave should've been a tall deluxe like Starscream
