    So, I bought my Voyager Ratchet today. It´s really awesome but I think there´s a little "mistake" on toy I guess.

    Well, on the package he looks like this:

    But when he´s fully transformed, he looks like this:

    The forearm cannon is on the other side and the hidden axe is upside down.
    Is it like this on all the toys?? Or does anybody why it is like that?

    Dont give him the wrong idea, far as I know they're all like that. They mirrored the package photo to look better on the box, and most likely the axe was repositioned before the final release. Package photos are done with prototypes to get them produced faster and occasionally things that were redesigned before final release are left off. You can see it on the package for protoform Starscream and leader Megatron, as well, both have their original heads.

    That´s stupid IMO. But if they´re all like that I´m fine with it. :D

    also

    Also, sometimes the Photoshop guys make mistakes, on the Target 3 pack of Proto, movie and truck prime, some one erased the other smokestack (or maybe it was a slapped together proto) on the other side of the toy.

    So...where is this automorphing "forearm cannon"? I do hope they don't mean the huge roof-rack/claw is supposed to be a cannon.

    Also, if you're wanting the painted side to show outward, rotate the elbow joint. I think it's designed that way on purpose.

    But then his hand is set completely wrong. Oh, and that roof-rack is the forearm-cannon.


    EDIT: I just noticed that he even has green feet on the back of the package.

    I'm pretty sure that was a feature that got dropped from the toy due to cost, but the memo never made it to the guys in packaging.

    My biggest thing is all the paint apps look better on the box pictures than the actual toy.

    Whatever happened to that supposed gold variant of Voyager Ratchet? Has someone confirmed it as a production run change or a variant?
