    Thanks :) 
    Too bad I'm not the kind of guy who likes paint jobs apart from what we see on the screen. Otherwise I would have love to buy this. Not here in Sri Lanka anyway, Don't want to pay $100 for a Voyager Class toy.

    I just don't see the point in another Ratchet repaint.

    I love this mold but find this repaint unnecessary and kind of ugly. They should have done him up like TFAnimated. Or was that how the G1 redeco looked? I didn't get that one either.

    I dig that they drew inspiration from a (seemingly wtf in the first place) RPM color scheme, but I just don't have room for a third use of this mold.

    I love the color scheme, but not enough to buy that mold. If I really want to get a representation of it I'll get the little RPMs one.

    Easy pass. The figure doesn't even look good with that color scheme.

    Paint job isn't all that bad, but I'm happy with the Voyager I've got. Though I would consider getting the Deluxe class figure in this deco.

    Don't know why they'd redeco the Voyager mold right after the release of a brand new deluxe mold. While I like the mold, I don't need more than two Ratchets.

    I can't totally tell from the pictures... is most of this figure molded in BLACK plastic, or just a really dark green?

    I know I'm likely in the minority here, but I really dig this figure (although looking over the thread so far, a lot more people than I expected seem to like it... that's cool). I really liked the out-of-left-field black RPM Ratchet, and was hoping that the scheme would be used on a larger figure. Not to mention I'm just a Ratchet fan and a fan of that mold in general. And I think he'll look especially nice if displayed alongside Takara Black Optimus, Stealth Bumblebee, Shadow Command Megatron, Black Soundwave, and a few of the other black movie repaints.

    Now, having said all that, I probably could have done without the tan plastic. That sort of breaks up (in a bad way) what would have otherwise been a clean, sharp black-and-neon color scheme. I also think I prefer the red windshield of the RPM version, even if red windshields are inherently silly and nonsensical.

    Speaking in terms of kitbashing, this could make a pretty fantastic base for some Trailbreaker customs. There are a few Ratchet-to-Trailbreaker conversions in Radicons already that look great... this repaint would save folks a couple steps.

    I passed up Ratchet in the pass, so I knew that I wanted this version when the pictures of Sea Spray's box first showed up. These new pics have sold me on it.

    I really dig this color scheme, but I already have two of the voyager mold. Might pick him up in the time between releases when there is nothing else to buy. Too bad they didn't paint the new deluxe like this.
