    What did you guys think of Ratchet?

    First of all Jeffrey combs was an amazing choice for Ratchet he usually plays eccentric or serious roles well such as Herbert West or the Question. Ratchet came off as a stern and fustrated who doesn't really care for the humans much. He;s a decent blend of Animated Ratchet without the old grumpy personality and a Bit of the Movie Ratchet with more charecterization. I thought is cool that he created the Ground Bridge which screams like a nod to RID and Armada. I also like the part when Bulkhead crushed one of Ratchet's medical tools infront of Fowler. BUUULLKKHEAD I NEEDED THAT!!!!! :lol 

    I think i'l come to love Ratchet in the show and eagerly wait to own his toy.

    I liked how he wasn't crazy old, and kinda seemed like any nerdy medic who has served in war long enough, stressed from the deaths and pain.

    Potentially the best Ratchet yet.

    Definitely the best voice for Ratchet ever.

    Don't get me wrong, I love G1 and animated and the movie one ain't bad either, when he gets his 3 seconds of screen time, but Prime's Ratchet is just awesome. My favourite character so far.

    Wasn't that much of a fan of TFA Ratchet since he was basically Kup.

    Jeffrey Combs is one of my favorite actors, so he's made Ratchet my favorite Prime character.

    im liking this ratchet alot. hes the only one who seems ot be in preportion (good news for the toy) and he's voiced by jeffery combs so it is win win all the way. I liek how he's got that cynical essence to him. he's not so much grumpy as he is more frustrated with his situation. I think he' will connect to raff since raff kinda showe dhim maybe not all humans are as dumb as he precieved? so far ratchet=my fave.

    Never been a big fan of Combs since he was The Question in JLU. Voice is just annoying to me and I had to sit through 2 shows with him yesterday as he played the Leader in The Avengers.

    I like his personality, but I'm having a hard time deciding what his accent is based on.

    It's the actor's signature creepy scientist voice that he's used since the Re-Animator.

    I like animated Ratchet more, but then of course, I like everything animated better.

    I think Prime's Ratchet is an awesome Ratchet though.

    I like him, love Jeffery Combs as the voice, but he's got a long way to go to beat out Animated. Animated Ratchet was really one of the central characters of the show and had the deepest past, plus he suffered from PTSD, so Prime Ratchet has some big shoes to fill.

    Ratchet sounds really kinda nasally and nerdy in the show, but I guess that's what Ratchet's always been. He gives me a slight reminder of Jeff Glen Bennett as Animated Ultra Magnus, if you ask me.

    He kinda annoys me with his resentment towards humans, but of course he'll eventually grow out of it.

    His face looks kind of ape-ish to me, which throws me off a little bit, otherwise I enjoy Ratchet a lot
