    Here's a good conspiracy theory for you all. I'm wondering if Hasbro is going to put out a TF Prime Voyager Ratchet. Here's my reasoning:

    1. The movie line voyager Ratchet came out and everyone bought those.
    2. Then the move line deluxe Ratchet came out and I don't believe those sold very well and got screwed profitwise.
    3. If you have a Voyager class, what's the point of having a deluxe class.
    4. A voyager Starscream is coming out now.
    5. A voyager Ratchet fits the cartoon scale more than a deluxe.
    6. Therefore...there more than likely will be a Voyager Ratchet.

    What do you guys think?

    Maybe? I'd prefer to have a Voyager Ratchet actually, but who knows right now.

    I think this is neither news or a rumour. I entered this thread very excited and left very disappointed. My day is ruined. I hope you are happy.

    @ Joalro...Sorry to get you so excited...the "jerk" wasn't necessary, but I understand. Anyways, I'm just thinking of ways Hasbro is trying to screw all the people interested in their toys.

    Ah, no problem. I was mostly joking.

    On topic, I would really love a voyager Ratchet. I'm a big fan of the voyager class overall and always welcome more It's that perfect size of not being too big or too small. Plus it makes sense for Ratchet to be of that size.

    That said, my preference is not how Hasbro runs their business. It may not actually make much sense to do another Ratchet as (from their perspective) he is less popular than say, bumblebee or Optimus, or even Starscream. Having a second Ratchet might not happen.

    I think it's unlikely, given Ratchet has a similar pressence in the show to Animated Ratchet, who only got two toys, both Deluxes. One of which was on the strength of a flashback episode and arguably off the back of the fact it could also be used as Ironhide.

    IMO, it is more likely Ratchet will be Deluxe only. Which I am fine with, he is an excellent little Deluxe.

    I think there is a lot of room for improvement, so I do hope he gets a Voyager, or at least another Deluxe.

    Scale means little to me, its a lost cause. I'm more than happy with the deluxe version of TFP Ratchet.

    Most likely we will get one. Maybe even in a Prime subline.

    I think scale-wise, the Deluxe would fit with Voyager Optimus and Megatron better anyway. A Voyager Ratchet would be way too big.

    I'd just like to see a nicer version of the character, since he's my favorite on the show.

    I think I'm interested in a voyager one that is more accurate. Scale, I would prefer him bigger, because he is bigger than Bumblebee. But we'll see what happens. Actually hope a Stunticon comes out :)

    ...But he's nowhere near as big as Optimus, which would create an even more jarring scale problem, imo.

    I hope not. The Deluxe is a great figure and I'd prefer if someone else got a Voyager instead.

    He'd only work as a Voyager if he somehow ended up being Bulkhead's height. Which might not work because Ratchet isn't as wide.

    I like the deluxe, but I would love to see a voyager. I don't see any reason why it can't happen.

    I would like one but would get scale problems with optimus well until we get the leader/weponizer
