    So what is it, "Alien Form Ratchet"? Does that mean it is a Cybertron form?

    It means the site he got it from used a poorly written description for the (slight) repaint of Voyager Ratchet that we all knew about ages ago.

    Anyone else see the description mentioning "In vehicle mode, unleash a Hummer H2 truck that's ready for action!"

    Only way I see that as alien is no one can really afford a hummer.

    Searching Play.com for Ratchet gives us 2 listings for the same item coming out the same day, the Ratchet everyone has seen and this one, and they have the same description that mentions the axe and cannon

    That does not mean the second one is a new one. It means it is a poorly written description that happens commonly with internet retailers

    "Alien Form" is a name used for the Voyager Fallen toy.

    The reference to a cannon is odd, and it was odd two years ago in the first movie toyline.

    Rescue Ratchet - Toy Gallery - Photo #8

    "AUTOMORPH forearm cannon!" is called out on the packaging, with an arrow pointing at the roof-rack notable for not having any kind of cannon. This is just the same mistake being made again.

    And note that the text there is not exclusive to Play.com, rather it's the same text on the back of the regular ROTF Voyager Ratchet packaging, and is also found here.
