    If, at present time, someone could only afford one or the other, but intended to get them both eventually which would you recommend that person goes for?

    Though I love my PRID Arcee expecially after I moded the rifles into hand blasters like in the show I have to go with Ratchet... I don't really have any reason to like him more than Arcee I just do.

    I voted Ratchet because he's constantly satisfying, and I find myself fiddling with him more than Arcee.

    But odds are, Arcee will be the more sought-after, so I'd snap her up the moment I saw her, if I were you.

    Ratchet first. He's definitely the best RID toy right now. The only thing you can really say is the lack of detail on alt mode, but transformation wise he's fantastic, articulation wise he's fantastic, and the sculpting on the head and body, fake door chest and all, is really great. He blows the other RID toys out of the water, as far as I'm concerned.

    I would say Arcee.

    Her gun is great replacement weapon for voyager Prime. The figure itself is fun and looks great with the other figures too.

    I like them both and am so insane I actually like the Arcee better than the FE version. But Ratchet is better and seems to disappear more quickly, so right now I'd say get Ratchet.

    Arcee. Ratchet's nice, but now that I have him and watched the show some more I'm waiting and hoping for a Voyager Ratchet.

    Ratchet is by and far the best non-FE figure. Get him first.

    I like Ratchet better, but eventhough they have the same case ratios I find more Ratchets than Arcees. Get Arcee first before she disappears

    Yeah I'd say Arcee. I like Ratchet but I find Arcee to just be better in my completely subjective opinion. She's very emotive and with just a touch of pink paint completely captures the character. Plus she's almost in scale with the FE bots.

    Ratchet is okay. I'm not sure why people are going gaga over him to be honest. I have a little trouble with his legs during transformation and I'm not a fan of his head springing up. But still good.

    I found them both a week ago. Bought Ratchet. How could I not? :rolleyes: 

    Anyway he's fantastic. Arcee is probably great as well, but you will NOT be disappointed if you choose Ratchet.

    I,ve only seen arcee once, so I figured ratchet was harder to get. I love ratcht, but this would be my definitive arcee, and I'm still hoping forma voyager ratchet. Decisions decisions...

    Ratchet. FE Arcee already exists and is much better.

    I would like a Ratchet, but a Voyager Prime Ratchet....am I doing good to wait for a voyager version....or should I just go get? I passed one up already and havent seen another since....i dont like that he's not to scale with the rest of the crew which is why i want a voyager sized at least....hoping im doing correct unless you guys tell me otherwise...

    Unless I missed it, which I don't think I did, there are nothing announced regarding a voyager Ratchet. Therefore one must assume there will be no such toy.
