    I never picked up any of the original Movie Ratchet figures but was considering it since they re-released the mold for ROTF as Desert Ratchet or whatever they call it. What do you think? Should I get Desert or try and find a premium or original movie instead?

    You could probably find a TFTM Ratchet in the Junkion for cheap, so I would go for the first release if possible. I'm not a big fan of the paint job on the ROTF Ratchet.

    Go for '07 Rescue Ratchet. It's actually red and white! 8D

    Eh, it's the same darn figure in this line, so it doesn't matter a heck of a lot. Go based on your preferred color scheme. Yellow-green, red and white, or dusty green. Whoohoo, the choices.

    EDIT: Whoops, said Premium instead of Rescue first time. My bad.

    I have the original. It's not that interesting. I'd probably pass, especially if you didn't despise yourself for missing him the first time.

    Get the original or shiny version, I'd skip the ROTF one, don't like the gray parts at all.
    Might be different if he had a weapon remold or such but no.

    I agree. Buy someone else instead. Steer clear of ratchet!

    It's a mold worth having, but the current version looks worse than both the premium and the original (And even the Rescue version, which I don't like). It's probably cheaper to buy the new one in stores rather than go online and get the 2007 versions, but I think it'd be worth it.

    If you're just in it for the character and not the mold, just wait until next year and get the deluxe version to go with ROTF Lockdown. Unless you care about scale, that is.

    I missed the TF1 releases, and right now Ratchet's the one I need to compelte my movie 'bots. The dusty deco for ROTF is unique in my eyes, and I actually want it as it looks better than the original deco.

    But I've messed with an original movie Ratchet, and I have to agree that if you already own the mold, it's not worth picking up again.

    You should probably wait for the Deluxe.

    I never got any Ratchet, and was contemplating getting the Voyager. But thanks to BotCon, I'll be waiting till next year for the Deluxe.

    I'm going to buy one. I imagine the desert bits will look better in person. Also I'm weak on passing on any transformers figure. Gotta have one for the ROTF autobot team.

    Human alliance would make more sense after they do ironhide.

    I've seen him in person and the desert bits really don't look so great.

    I'm actually wondering what the Deluxe ROTF version is going to look like...i'd hold buying a Ratchet untill we see what he looks like. I have the '07 original. I might actually buy the new deluxe if it's any good.
