    When ever I hear his voice, all I hear is Weyoun from Star Trek DS9.

    I love his gruffy, always annoyed attitude. And his compassion for his teammates has a medic is nice.

    "I NEEDED THAT!" :lol

    Yays! I love me some Ratchet love!

    He's an awsome character, perhaps one of the best ones developed so far besides Bulkhead and Arcee. He started off as a grumpy medic bot, but as season one passed, he started to warm up to the kids and even admitted that he has grown to care for them, especially to Raf. It's practically one of the most touching scenes in all of Transformers: Prime.

    Heck, even him admitting about his greatest failure (no pun on the tv trope) in regards to never being able to fix Bumblebee's voicebox and finally being able to believe in himself again after he fixed Bee's t-cog. It just goes to show how far Ratchet has come throughout the seasons.

    Here's a hope that we'll get another Ratchet focused episode like we did with "Stronger, Faster." It was one of the most touching episodes out there compared to "One Shall Fall" and the hilarity matching with "Operation: Bumblebee, Part 2."

    I just love Jeffery Combs' performance on Ratchet. He does an excellent job of him and he fits the role perfectly.

    "But Optimus, they don't have a protective shell"
    "they'll go squish underfoot"

    I just picked up RID Deluxe Ratchet and its a suprisingly good figure. The missing paint apps and bright white plastic really aren't that bad in person.

    Ratchet is awesome! He's got that wonderfully snarky sense of humour, laughs at LOLcats, took on an army of zombies, fought Knock-Out despite a horrendous injury and punched Megatron in the face while proclaiming his epicness.

    I liked him more before he just became an exposition generator, but he's still my favourite Autobot.

    Sparse paint I get, but why would bright white plastic be bad? That's what people want, to get away from Hasbro's old method of using off-whites for primarily white toys like Jazz and Drift.

    He's my favorite Autobot.

    And this better not create a fad of appreciation threads for every character.

    I love this guy, he's cranky, grumpy , hell a bit of a dick at times but he's a nice guy once you get to know him.

    The Fact he can be a control freak and at the same time blame himself for never fixing Bumblebee's voice is amazing.

    He's complex and he's one helluva of a medic. Also gotta give props for Jeffrey Combs for portraying Ratchet in this manor. The Guy is fantastic and puts his A Game in anything he's in.

    Excellent figure.
    A few more paint apps and a backback and he'd be perfect.

    Loved animated version.
    Like this one even more.

    Ratchet's the best Autobot in this series so far. He's epic and grumpy!

    I loved him in TFA too.

    He's kinda like Kup in that old man, gruff, grumpy way.

    Yet he's clearly a veteran and his optics have seen some hardcore things.

    plus, how can you not love,"I needed that!"

    A Ratchet Appreciation Thread? WE NEEDED THAT. But yeah, loved the last two incarnations of Ratchet a lot, him being the grump doctor with a scarred past is pretty nice IMO. His figure is pretty nice looking as a stand alone as well, would look better with the rest of the bots if he were a bit bigger (voyager) and perhaps was more solid elsewhere (Backpack..more paint). Also his latest Fuzor reference just skyrocketed him straight to the top!

    Just dropping in to leave my love for the Docbot. =D

    Ratchet's always been my favorite character (along side Wheeljack) since G1. His design in Prime is amazing and so's his character. I really like what they've done here.
