    The upcoming two parter Operation Bumblebee is said to also include a backstory for Ratchet as a well. So what do you think it may be like? MY guess that Racthet may be involved in Bumblebee's voice repairs or the best that Ratchet can do but do you think that there can more to Ratchet then just that? Maybe he has a history with Shockwave or smething similer to his Animated conterpart's story.

    So what are your thoughts?

    No white knight jokes about Kaiju are necessary folks.

    Whatever it is keep Lockdown the fuck away. Bounty hunters suck. Been sucking since Boba Fett,

    No, but in a war that's lasted millions of years, I'd be impressed if someone didn't have any trauma from any number of past events or something.

    I'm thinking, and hoping, that since these are supposed to be the episodes that deal with Bumblebee's lack of a voice, it has something to do with the fact that he has been unable to repair Bumblebee's voice.

    No this is just a thread about what Ratchet was like during the war. It doens't need tobe traumatic it's some ideas of what he may be like. Maybe there could be a reason why he's a bit grumpy?

    Ahem TFA!

    But seriousily I don't think this Ratchet needs it. Honestly I'd like to know he joined the Autobots espicially since he and Orion did not know each other before he became a Prime.

    Now, WTF is this?! Oh, Shroob, my poor delusional Shroob! Calm down, everyone, this poor chap clearly has NO idea what he's saying! C'mon, let's go get you a nice cup of tea and a scone; you've obviously had a long day and don't know what you're saying.

    Whatever it is, it'll never beat TFA Ratchet's. His backstory was amazing.

    I want party animal Ratchet.

    His backstory not only fleshed him out, but added so much to the backstory of Cybertorn and the war and was tied directly to the overall plot of season 3.

    I doubt the same will ever be said of this Ratchet.

    Boy I can't wait for this episode. I love TFP Ratchet.

    We know a few things about what Ratchet was like during the war from the War for Cybertron game. But yeah, Ratchet needs a backstory.

    I hope there's no Lockdown involved. While I would love to see a Prime Lockdown, we don't really need another copy of an Animated character. As much as I like Bulkhead, he's really just a more brutal/war-hardened version of Animated Bulk.

    Okay THIS!

    It's perfect and no one has bothered going back to Budiansky's idea for Ratchet.

    QFT! TFA Ratchet's back story was stuff of legend.

    As for TFPrime's Ratchet, I'm hoping they tie his story into the one episode when he consumed synthetic Energon and went fucking ninja nuts on everybody. I'd like them to explain that he once was a ninja, had a falling out involving something warlike, and decided to turn to the medical field.

    Why not? :ev:

    Agree with Lockdown *concerning Ratchet*, disagree with bounty hunters *to an extent*. I want Ratchet to be more like Wade from Saving Private Ryan, he already gets hard on himself when he feels like he doesn't do enough, maybe show him failing to save someone in the past, being haunted by it. Could be the reason he pushes so hard to be the best medic.
