    why do people keep saying transformers prime deluxe ratchet is red? if you look at him he is very orange. just hold him next to prime. or you could even compare ratchets red sirens to his orange roof

    am i just colorblind or something?

    um, are you missing your glasses or something? he is definitely red. he may be a different color of red than optimus but he's red alright.. and how many Ambulances you know of that are white and orange and not white and red?

    Matter of fact he's the same color red as the package he and the rest of the Primes come in.

    I had a similar issue with a color of paint I bought, Testors Sigil Red. I could have sworn it was orange and wasn't sure whether to be pissed at myself or the paint company and my girlfriend kept saying "you're insane, that's red." After a while I finally came to accept it as red, no idea what the deal was. Good luck.

    There's no such thing as colour to begin with, so you're all wrong.









    Rumble's blue, though.

    I used a red sharpie to color the antennae on the deluxe's head. Matched perfectly.

    Make of it what you will.

    Not sure whether it's cos of sleep depravation or what, but I laughed too hard at this. Bravo sir.



    Prime Ratchet is definitely red. The issue with colour is it's usually a mix of different shades of the same colour, so different situations cause it to have different hues. To compensate, let's just call him orangey-red, or burnt red like that chap on the first page who I've forgotten the name of. Whoops

    Toy? Red, definitely.
    Show model? Orange. Copperish, burnt, whatever....it's orange.

    Even before the toy came out, people were calling him red. WTF for? No idea.

    Okay, that pic is perfect... The Autobot symbol on him is clearly a different tone of orange, bordering on red. It might even be red. Simply put, the symbol is red, he's orange.

    can we just call it red/orange and move on? :p 


    he's definitely not the same red as Optimus and he's not outright orange either so....
