Images for High Resolution Henkei Ratchet Images

Ktulu
About what I expected, but not bad I guess
NemesisBruticus
looks better than the first pic. wonder if the classics version will have the red head? or maybe both(running change)
Takara_destron
Not bad, but I prefer the universe version by far.
QmTablit
I can barely remember how the Classics Ratchet was different, but it looks like it's just chrome lights & gun/stabby-stabby end.

No reason for me to not get Classics. Though I'm sure I'll be doing the same slight mistransformation to keep him from checking out his own boobs.
DJCHARTERS
thank god they got rid of all that black the universe one had. this is ratchet i cant wait for him.
llamatron
Nice!

What's the mistransformation to avoid self boob staring?

Not folding the wheels all the way back under the backpack, but leaving them out to the side.
rapid_fire
wow!!! that looks sooooooooooo much better

the universe version looks like crap
TCracker
Want it like NAO!
RobotoChan
I like this very much - cant wait to get one
G1Wheeljack
I guess this pretty much confirms the other image we saw was Universe, personally I like this one better.
microclone
wow, if thats a prod version that looks so much more impressive than universe ironhide, i like the mould but universe ironhides plastic colours and lack of detail made him look incredibly cheap.
E. C. R. Former
NOW THAT'S MORE LIKE IT!

Ha! I knew that the other prototype was the Universe version. Henkei version is more beautiful... and he comes out a month earlier. Glad I kept him on preorder.
Silent_Magnus
I think Ratchet needs a face remold.
To me he looks like Ironhide pretending to be Ratchet.

I totally agree. Rachet up, Ironhide down.
a fan like you
Will this Ratchet only be in Japan?
frenzyrumble
Chrome headlines? ThaT THE BEST they can do?
Buzzer-Bot
I like better.The mold suits him,the colour scheme is awesome!

Once again Henkei triumphs over Universe 2.0.
giga-galvatron
Already got him on pre-order.
SPLIT LIP
Wow, a Henkei I actually REALLY want! Nice use of chrome, though I will be painting the head to my liking.
VAwitch
Other than the Chevron being too d* big, I like it.
Megatronwp38
looks nice!
Robogeek28
SOLD!!
godsenddeath
So.... Pretty.
n_tel_ekt
Damn, thats nice. Too bad its about 3 times the cost of the Universe one. So, I'll stay with Uni even though it has a bad color scheme.
Thundershot
I'll definitely take the Universe one. Even if the colors are reversed on the head... But it's better than the cartoon head.
WhiteMocha
I definitely prefer this to the Universe version. It's cleaner, without that random red trim on the legs. And Ironhide/Ratchet's weapons looks great in chrome (especially with the red scalpel).

I was hoping that ONE of them would have a red head, but I can live without it. The white head helps distinguish him more from Ironhide, I suppose. And I got my red-headed Ratchet fix from Animated and movie Rescue Ratchet.
Foster
I didn't even notice the Universe version was a much uglier eggshell white until I put the photos side by side. I still love that license plate homage, but am in for the Henkei most definitely.

Damn, no comparison.
shroobmaster
The Takara version looks REALLY good, but I'm sticking with Universe for price and red-crest (not accurate, but I prefer it like TFA Ratchet).
ShadowStitch
I'm still not convinced the Henkei version will actually be glaringly bleached eggshell white; On one side you've got a poorly lit Classics, on the other side a brightly lit, likely photoshop-enhanced Henkei. It will probably be the exact same white in the end, and probably be just as poorly painted as all of the Prowl variants -- milky, watery white paint on dingy white plastic, with occasional reports of sticky paint apps. Mark my words.

...and just for the record, remember that removing the red front bumper thing is super easy and does not detract from the transformation mechanic in any way... if it was bothering you like it bothers me.
Foster
You'd be amazed how easy it is to find the extra space and money for Henkei when you pass on a few voyager and ultra repaints.
flywheels
Already pre-ordered and I don't regret it. Classics version just looks bleh.
Hound & Mirage
Kinda hawt.

Seriously, it's gonna be hard buying the Universe one after picking this one up.
BigRC83
Looks awesome. The Ratchet color scheme is much better than Ironhide.
Smokescreen
I had cancelled my preorder for this guy, but now that I've seen those pics I may have to reconsider my decision.
Skylock
I don't really care for the character, but this looks hot.
StarSaber79
Wow he looks really cool alot better then Hasbros version.
0R10N P4X
Who is still convinced the one we saw a few weeks ago was the Henkei version?

Ratchet looks awesome, better than Ironhide even.

Why are you surprised? That's exactly what they did with Ironhide.
Golden Age
I like it. Its news weeks like this one, that make other weeks seem so dull.

cool, Yes it was bugging the crap out of me. Henkie loves to chrome stuff, but when given a chance to chrome something that is often chrome, they skip or forget. They did it here with Ratchet's grill guard, and on IronHide, and then on inferno they could have chromed the crap out of him, but didn't. somebody needs to take Hendei on a tour and show them what can be chrome and what can't.
Batman
That is damn sexy.
KhaN
That looks AWESOME!
General Tekno
Sweet.

So VERY glad I preordered him.

Now, let's see some Dinobot pics please.
docbenspock
that's just amazing! totally worth the extra when Takara puts the love of the character into it. i knew this would worth it when i preordered it months ago.

I don't think we've seen ANY pics of Universe Ratchet so far.

Anyway, Henkei Ratchet looks awesome as always.
ORIO
Much much much better than the other pics we saw with all the red lines. I love it, glad I got him preordered!
