    I notice since Universe Ratchet, his distribution has been spotty. Universe, not many people were able to get him...ROTF G1 inspired movie Ratchet, spotty. DOTM Specialist Ratchet, real spotty....what gives? No love for G1 Ratchet?

    Quite simply, he's not as popular as some of the other characters. Also, the figures aren't as appealing to kids on the shelf as say a sports car is. I think movie Ratchet figures also prove this point as well. I'm anxious to see if the Prime Ratchet figures do better of fair about the same.

    Universe Ratchet just looked bad and the Deluxe movie molds just sucked. I LOVE my Henkei Ratchet and I have the deluxes movie figures and they are meh.

    I think they(Movie Deluxes) are quite good. I know Prime Ratchet is coming, but I'd like a FOC Ratchet as well

    I saw a kid playing with a TRU Scan Series Ratchet a few days ago. It was awesome.

    In a Target, which is next door to a TRU with a ton of those Scan Series figures.
