    Little disappointed that nothing is really new on him from the looks of it. but of course he was pretty accurate to the film model.

    I'm not digging the grey, so I think I'll stick with the first version.

    That's just friggin' awful if that's the final product, srsly.

    I mean the first one was missing a lot of intricate paint apps as well, but this is naked, basically.

    No remolding and that awful gray? Yeah, no purchase from me, and I'm usually a completist on mainline toys.

    Man I was hoping for at least a retooled arm, like the automorphing gun that was on the TF1 prototype but was abandoned.

    I was really hoping we'd get a retool of Ratchet. Or at least a better headmold/face paint apps. FAIL.

    Wow... what a piece of crap... I'd like to make this post a little more significant, but that's really my only thought.

    If the status of their ROTF toy is at all indicative of how a TF1 character fares in the new film, then Ratchet totally dies. Prime, Bumblebee, Ironhide, Starscream, and Megatron all get toys that are completely new or with major retooling work. Ratchet only gets a new color scheme that's somehow worse than every previous iteration of the mold.

    Even Ironhide gets movie-accurate guns, and this guy doesn't even get his rifle or saw?

    Hasbro, I am dissapoint.

    At least Hasbro is saving a ton of money on paint this time around...

    By releasing most of the figures without any of it.

    Ratchet was the weakest link in the Movie. Again, he has the weakest sale among show characters. (TONS of him available at clearance corners but no one bothered taking a 2nd glance at the dude. Gosh, even non show characters like Cliffjumper & Dropkick were moving faster than him!) :rip 

    So it does seem right that Hasbro's focusing on other characters instead. My :2c:  anyway. :)

    I never got the first one because it looked stupid. This one has two problems. It needs some remolding/retooling and he also needs to ditch all that grey. Otherwise, he is almost an improvement. The yellow is right - it's not spew-green as much this time. More yellow.

    Nah, Ratchet was one of the most inaccurate Autobots. In the movie, Ratchet is athletic looking and his chest didn't flip upsidedown like the toy does. Toy Ratchet was big and bulky.

    I am disappointed Hasbro. You could have at least tried to give him his awesome machine gun.

    Glad that this, and Ironhide (IMO) turned out so bad. I really don't want to have to fight the urge to pick up molds that I already own this time around. There are a lot of new movie toys to waste money on, it is nice to see a few that I will be able to pass on. I just hope that they shortpack these remolds pretty good. I don't like walking into Walmart and seeing nothing but Animated Lugnut and Atomic Lugnut sitting there. It will really hurt if all I see are Lugnuts, Movie Ratchet and Ironhide, and Universe Threadbolt all summer.
