    You know, I don't think I ever saw a thread made regarding this, so here it goes. What do you think of the paintjob Ratchet's Alternate mode, as well as robot mode, now has?

    I for one like it. Its bright and exuberant, and I feel its a definate improvement from the greenish-yellowish color he had before.

    How about you guys? Lets not forget whether or not this new look affects the toys positively or not.

    I like it. It's very much the same motif he had before, but now more visually distictive. Also should appease those who were confusing him and Bumblebee due to similar colours.

    I also thought the mixture of white and bright green was better than red and that odd yellow.

    Well, I liked the yellow Ratchet to begin with, but I like these green colors as well.
    It's like my good fellow Split up said:

    It will make him stand out more, and it's always good to see my favorite Autobot [except Jetfire] more clearly.

    As everyone else has said I like it a lot also. Makes it now where every Auotobot is a different color.

    Quite true there. Skids is gone from the film, as he was also a bright green, even though in DOTM he would have been green and black. Same with Jolt. He was a blue car that could easily get confused with the new blue Mercedes being featured in DOTM.

    This is true. But the way I see it, "Mirage" is red and black and Leadfoot is red and white. They are technically the same color I suppose. But you knew what I meant. :D

    I like them okay but not more or less than his TFTM/ROTF colors. I prefer the red and white G1-esque colors to both schemes.

    It's not my favorite movie deco, but it's definitely an improvement from the previous deco he had. Though I'm a bit hesitant to get his new Deluxe figure. Every time I see it in-person it just seems soooo small. Doesn't help that I'm not a fan of his weapon. If I can hold out I'll wait till after Botcon is over to make a final decision on him (I'm hoping a new mold Voyager get's announced).

    Updates that are minor and subtle that work well with the char. are always welcome changes.
    I actually like all the updates the ol' characters have gotten on this film so far, except maybe Sideswipe and Soundwave but I haven't decided yet.

    He is very small haha. But the mold itself is really nice and accurate. Just not size accurate. :D

    When the first movie came out, I said to myself "I wish they had made Ratchet green." So I guess my wish got granted. I would have been happy with solid green, but the white accents do help break things up and give him a more "ambulance" vibe. Overall, its definitely an improvement.

    Well, he is in scale with Voyager Megatron and Prime. Good for people like me who collect smaller-scale figures.

    Well, Mirage is a bit more solid red than Leadfoot. His red gets blotted out by decals and logos.
