    With the news that TF4 is "a whole new re imagining of Transformers", there's a chance they might overhaul all the characters to be completely different from the current movies and maybe even replace BB as the "main Autobot".

    And honestly, I think it could be Ratchet. Think about it, next to BB and Optimus, he's the only other constant for the Autobots core group. He was in the movies already, in Animated, and WFC, and Prime. Characters like Jazz and Ironhide get replaced with the likes of Prowl, Arcee and Bulkhead, but Ratchet always manages to stay.

    I think back to Infiltration where Ratchet was the star, and I think the very nature of the character makes for great entertainment.

    YES!

    Only if he says "I am your Doctor of Doom!" or "Don't worry I'm an emergency vehicle!".

    Warlord Ratchet for the win.

    Oh and don't forget :

    "I needed that !"

    If Prime is Kirk & Ratchet is McCoy who is Spock ?

    Bumblebee is more Chekov.

    (The idea of there being about 200 different Chekov Action Figures is making me laugh now..)

    I'm game. :) 

    Even though there's practically not a snowball's chance in hell that it'll happen, the most I can hope for is that his screentime/influence/dialogue is increased substantially. Say, along the lines of Wheelie/Brains? That's all I'm asking. :)

    With Megatron dead and Cybertron destroyed, Ratchet reformats himself into an actual ambulance in order to feel like he's getting back to his true vocation after the war. He and his unsuspecting EMTs get sucked back into the Bot/Con conflict when battles start to erupt all over the city. Ratchet then decides in order to best protect humans and save lives that he must be the one to stop the being responsible for all this wanton destruction and senseless loss of life: Optimus Prime.

    I'd prefer Leadfoot over Ratchet.
    Maybe a movie about Leadfoot and his weight problem after he spent 10 years advertising for Maccas after DOTM. Everyone else can be background characters.

    Fortunately for Leadfoot, he joins the Biggest Loser. However, his attitude gets him into trouble and he can't lose weight considering he is metal. Then he gets Ratchet to reformat him into Leadfootimus Prime. He beats the fat, loses about a ton in one week and then goes home.

    Oh please Ratchet be a main dude...... OH PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
    I mean he has one of the coolest looking robot modes out of Bayformers.
    And what I got out of the 3 movies, I love Ratchet Personality, serious yet funny.
    But "TF -Prime" may give him a chance to be a big part in TF4!
    OH PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

    Disagreed, Bee is annoying, overpowered, and overrated.... Bee needs to die as far as I see it, I don't care if the kids cry, if Transformers can get away with killing of main characters like in the G1 movie, then.... DIE BEE DIE.
    Unless his personality turns in to Prime Bumblebee or WFC Bumblebee, then I hope he gets replaced or killed.

    in the movie-verse I'm just not a fan of ratchet. I say no unless they change him into an actual ambulance(red and white).

    I kind of prefer Ratchet being the affable helpful sort as in these films, since that's how he was in G1 and what an ideal medic would be. Making him a grouchy war veteran in ANIMATED, and a finicky fusspot in PRIME did not sit well with me: sure it made for a better character, but overall those moves kind of demeaned Ratchet in my eyes. So let Ratchet keep his character, but give him some more screentime to shine.

    Ratchet I think could serve as the second-in-command to Optimus Prime. He was one of the original Autobots, and his senior position would serve him well in counselling Autobots and humans. I also think he deserves his own action scene, where he drives into a battlefield and rescues/picks up wounded humans and Autobots, all the while drawing fire from Decepticons. That'd suit him real well I think.

    I actually like this idea. Ratchet's badass.
    Reminds me of G1 Marvel comics.

    I want more Ratchet. He's one of the main Bots that need more. He has a neat design, kickass voice, and an incredibly ridiculous arsonal of weapons.

    Plus I want him to be more of a medic. Reattaching legs off-screen and shooting Bee in the throat with a laser pointer isn't enough.

    New Bumblebee will be Goldbug. Made from Bumblebee and acting exactly the same as Bumblebee did. And Goldbug will look exactly like Bumblebee. But gold.

    Would be nice to have a different character than Camarobee as the main human pet. Ratchet in that role could be interesting. Which is probably why Bay wouldn't do it.

    I agree, Ratchet deserves spotlight here.
