    I skipped out on all the first movie Ratchets and Animated Ratchet.

    Should I get RoTF Ratchet or wait til Animated Cybertron Mode Ratchet comes out?

    Also, I'm not a fan of the deluxe RoTF Ratchet that's coming down the line.

    My toyline really needs a medibot in it.

    I personally like Voyager Ratchet (original release the best).
    You could always go for Movie Rescue Ratchet if you want to keep with the G1 colors, and you can probably get one pretty cheap on eBay (or maybe HTS, if they still have them). My brother kept his in the box, but I think it looks pretty cool.

    Here's one of the cheaper ones BIN on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/TRANSFORMERS-20...emQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item45ee4d55de

    The Voyager Ratchet mold is one of my favorite movie line toys. He really isn't too accurate to his on screen portrayel, but if you can look past that he's a lot of fun.

    I am also of the opinion that the original movie's Voyager Ratchet is a great figure. He's big and chunky and has decent articulation. The transformation can be a bit tricky, at least for me it was. I'd say get one for sure. The greens don't quite match, but that seems to be a standard problem with TF toys as of late.

    The Voyager mold may not be very accurate but it is a fine toy. I do reccomend it.

    ROTF Voyager Ratchet is not a bad figure, but I like Animated Ratchet better. The Cybertronian Deluxe coming out looks great.

    Best Buy exclusive Ratchet is by far the best out of the four(Mv1, RR, DT). IMO
    If you can find him for the right price, get em.

    Depends on price. I picked up my Movie Ratchets for £6 (against the price at the time of £20). For that, he was alright. At full price, he's too simple for his size and his weapons are dull. He's a pretty bland figure. I'd get the Animated one.

    Movie Voyager Ratchet is sweet. Cool alt mode and decent robot mode (although the legs are a bit thick). If I didn't own the first movie one I'd definitely pick up the ROTF one..the sandy look is actually quite cool in person..but he doesn't differ enough from the first one to make me buy him for full price.

    I'd say definitely get a version of him.

    If you ask me he looks pretty ridiculous in the bright green. I thought about getting Rescue Ratchet. A local store has a loose one for $12 and I might get that.

    Rescue Ratchet from the 2007 movie line is probably the best version of the voyager mold.

    a

    I would get one of the 2 animated, the movie stuff does not work for me, Ratchet looks too scary to fix anyone, the Cybertronian mode and Earth mode animated should both be good.
