    Hasbro stopped caring for Leader class toys when Bumblebee officially became one.

    Do I think Hasbro cares about a Leader Ratchet toy? Well, no. Not at all actually.

    Shit, I don't care about a Leader Ratchet so I REALLY don't care if Hasbro cares. The deluxes and Movie 1 Voyager aren't that bad I don't see why Ratchet needs a Leader toy "just because".

    I'd buy it just because I love leader classes. But i'm perfectly happy with my Best Buy Voyager.

    I think you guys missed the point. The thread is complaining about Bumblebees. Ratchet was just to get you in here.

    I look at my definitive movie 1 Autobot shelf and it lacks a decent Ratchet, accuracy and scale wise.

    I think the metallic 07 Movie Voyager was as good as we needed. I haven't seen better since.

    I want a leader Ratchet. He'd fit in well with my HAs.

    nice sig, then. ;) 


    We do not need a Leader Ratchet, at all. Redo a voyager, better scale. The Deluxe from DOTM was pretty good in my opinion, just small.
    Leader Ironhide is even out of scale. I wouldn't hold my breath for Ratchet.

    Accuracy is one thing, but I think scale is just fine. He's more bulky than he's model but Ratchet is not a bad transformer, nice and sturdy, for a movie toy.

    ^ Wow, I could tell Megatron was larger than Optimus, but didn't realize he was that much larger...

    Ratchet isn't a major character. He's barely in Revenge of the Fallen and only has marginally more to do in Dark of the Moon. He simply doesn't have the screentime to justify a larger toy. The movie 1 Voyager is fine, he's not a bad toy and probably the best we will ever get for a "big" Ratchet.

    It's not accurate
    that scale chart is probably very early rotf
    (take a look at the BB)
    It references jetfire but has a silhouette of movie one megs??
    Probably an early guess as to how big rebuilt megatron would be

    After they botched up Leader Ironhide with too many gimmicks, I'm alright with my voyager. What's really a shame is that they don't make a voyager with a transformation modeled after the DotM Ratchet. He is pretty awesome and screen accurate.
