    all of the autobots have had their really sweet moments... ...except for Ratchet. He's got a whole lot of potential but you always see him fighting in the backround. Post your thoughts.

    Poor Ratchet has been totally shafted thus far. For instance - if not for that one line Optimus uttered about him being a medic, we'd never even know he was supposed to be one. He could at least have been shown repairing his fellow Autobots, or even patching up some human troops after learning about Earth medicine via the Internet. But noooo.

    He looks very cool, and I like his voice actor, too. He definitely needs more screen time along with Ironhide.

    its definitely a shame, he had so much potential in the beginning. But he keeps disappointing me. He barely did anything in the first film, then did basically nothing in the second. Seeing as they've updated his look, I hope they plan to give him a few lines, maybe a whole scene, but realistically speaking, it might just be to increase chances of selling his toys, since all his toy's thus far have been shelfwarmers.

    I hope that Ratchet's big moment in DOTM will be when he DIES. Seriously. Two movies later, and he's never really done anything important, which is a real shame, considering how crucial Ratchet was to the plot in Transformers Animated. He's basically useless in the movies, and one of my least favorite Transformers to boot. To this day, I'm disappointed that they didn't kill him off in ROTF, and that they let him live instead of Jazz in TF1.

    I love Ratchet, and it's a damn shame he's done nothing besides slice off Brawl's arm and shoot at Megatron. This thing has been for all the Autobots - Ironhide, Ratchet, Sideswipe, Jolt, Arcee(s) - but Ratchet's had the worst of it. That one little sequence of Ironhide, Ratchet, Sideswipe, and the Autobots fending off Megatron and Starscream was my favorite Autobot moment in the second film, and proved you don't need Prime or Bumblebee to have a badass Autobot.

    He needs at least one, 10 second long shot of glory, using his axe/saw to tear into a Decepticon in a badass swipe. I'd be happy with that, or him having more, meaningful lines in DOTM.

    I completely agree with everything that's been said in this thread thus far. Ratchet need some love. I want to see him repair Prime or Bumblebee for a good 10 or 15 seconds. Have him set up a little heart rate monitor and have him do Operation.

    Hell, all the characters except for prime and bee have been shafted in the 2nd movie. And wtf is the "fallen," when you have a rich pool of characters to choose from, why pick such a crappy villian. And who is sideswipe anyway? Is he their butler or something? No introductions, no nothing. Really cool fight scenes where you don't know what the hell is going on doesnt help either. I wasted 10 bucks going to that movie.

    Ratchet and Jolt are about on par. We don't know much of either of them.

    Ratchet:
    - Supposedly a medic
    - Is yellow
    - Doesn't speak a lot

    Jolt:
    - Has electric whips
    - Is blue
    - Doesn't speak a lot

    His moment of glory would have been / could have been upgrading JetPrime along with Jolt. He could have welded all of the parts together that Jolt was putting into place...but he didn't.

    I do remember talks on the dvd or something where they said they wanted to do something like that..but ran out of time. :(

    wait am i forgetting when in the first movie He did a flip and cut off brawl's arm, i mean the camera was focused on him and stayed focused until the arm hit the ground, that was his action moment i think.

    Bayformers Ratchet is just a useless quack.
    He couldn't fix Bumblebee's voice, and put Jazz back together. Both are pretty easy tasks for robots. G1 Ratchet must rolling around in his grave knowing what a bumbler his movie counterpart is.

    Ratchet's big moment will be when he explodes.
