    In terms of general function and articulation which seems to be the best movie ratchet figure? It doesn't have to be the most screen accurate and I'm only asking about deluxe and or voyager sizes.

    I have to say the new DOTM deluxe Ratchet is by far the best. Easy transformation and very screen accurate. Overall a fun figure..

    The newest one, the DOTM deluxe. If you're factoring accuracy, it's the 2007 Best Buy exclusive. Anyone who says different is crazy and should not be listened to.

    I'm a big, big, Ratchet collector, and the DotM deluxe is THE best looking movie figure that has been done of him so far. Absolutely, without a doubt. I ordered the red and white repaint today as well from HTS.

    You can call me crazy but the differences between that and the original 2007 release are rather slight. If you're going for DotM accuracy and scale, the new Target Voyager repaint is also what he would want. But if it's simply look, it's DotM deluxe.

    I would have said the Best Buy exclusive voyager, but the DOTM deluxe looks very nice. Still on the fence with him though.

    Here, not the clearest, but you can see how good the DotM Deluxe looks in robot mode.

    DOTM deluxe Ratchet is an awesome figure, so I'd go with that one if only because my other choice, the voyager mold, isn't popular with many people. But I'm a sucker for the mold, and say if you can, get at least one version of it. :D

    I only have the HFTD G1-inspired deluxe. I'm happy with him, but I agree that the DOTM deluxe looks even better.

    I don't know about it being too G1-inspired though... he's mostly red with bits of white instead of the other way around. If I recall correctly he's based on some early ratchet concept art for the first movie (which I guess took some elements from G1 so... uh.)

    I'd get it if I didn't have a ratchet already, I generally avoid getting repeat characters in the same "toyverse" even if they're different molds since figures are a bit expensive here.

    Yeah, they're more red than white, but it's definitely the ambulance color that does the homage. When the new one gets here I'll have each rescue colored counterpart to each green movie Ratchet, not counting the Titaniums that didn't transform.

    Also I say DOTM Deluxe,he is slightly smaller than his first deluxe size figure but he is so much more screen accurate even the voyager one don't come close.I say get him as he is the definitive version at less than $10 for him.

    Yeah, I'm waiting for that one too (the one that's mainly red), so I really hope the colour isn't icky in person.

    DotM deluxe is the best, at least unless/until they use that design for a new better Voyager/Leader class figure.

    I do still like the Best Buy Premium Voyager though. The G1 Rescue redeco of that Voyager is also nifty.
