New Transformers 3 on set pictures - including a clear view of Ratchet's new look!

Posted on 06-08-2010 at 02:55 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
TF3-Ratchet-New
A small gallery has been posted to Flickr, showing off the vehicles of Transformers 3 in storage prior to being used on screen. The Ironhide Topkick and the Optimus Prime truck are both there, as is a group of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles, used for scouting terrain from the air). What is particularly exciting though is the presence of Autobot Ratchet, in his all-new deco. We previously saw it in transit, but it was partially covered up. Now you can see the whole thing for the first time! Ratchet now features a much brighter green, as well as a large gray stripe on the side panels and an entirely gray hood on his front. His side panels, instead of the "lifesign pulse" detail, now feature the wording "FIRE DEPARTMENT E4".

What do you think of this new look for Ratchet? Check out the images by clicking on the title of this story, and then share your thoughts on our 2005 Boards by clicking on the discuss button.

UPDATED with more images of presently unknown stunt cars from the previously seen Tilting Office Clip. Mad props to Waveride for bringing these to our attention as well. They're taken from this Youtube video photo montage.

oooh.

Hopefully they won't just do yet another redeco of the original voyager. we need a new one that actually looks like the character.
TheFallen
I like these colors on ratchet, and what could those drones be for?
Chopperface
Wow. Ratchet looks like the wrapper of lime-flavored toothpaste. Ugly. What have they done to my favorite Autobot besides Ironhide and Prime?

But it's good to see Ratchet and Ironhide won't be dropped from the film. At least they're in it.
Ops_was_a_truck
Ratchet is totally going to become the Wedge of the Transformers movies.
General Magnus
I would suggest those drones for Laserbeak.

You seriously think this looks worse than his original deco? I mean, I liked his original deco, but this looks much better, and should make him look a little more doctor-y in robot mode. (which he technically isn't, he's a Medic)

I like that he's stll fire rescue, instead of trying to make him into some sort of mega-ambulance.
TRANS+CRAZY
Oh wow, that's a better paint scheme than he was in the first two movies! I like it!
AutobotSkids
I like the white on Ratchet... Heck, I liked the original deco!

I'm glad to see him with Optimus Prime and Ironhide. Maybe he'll have more lines this time around.
Opticron Primal
Wow....I like that. Definately less busy-looking the the original deco, which I already liked. This looks much cleaner.
Ravenxl7
Interesting. The light gray and green works nicely for the alt-mode, imo. Might convince me to buy another Ratchet figure (which will hopefully be a new mold). With all the other changes, I would have also changed his logo. Doesn't really flow with the rest of the alt-mode anymore.
Starscreamer95
Much better paint scheme for Ratchet!
Should have been this from the begining.
Bumblethumper
Doesn't really seem like an improvement, but I'm open to the chance it'll grow on me. Something about it looks unfinished.



...maybe you should repost the pics from your other thread in here. They're kinda interesting, but people might miss them in the old thread.

(I'm calling Dead End on this one)
Mechafire
I kinda dig it.
Waveride
Personally i think it's the yellow "E4" that throws the colors off as it's a really random mix (yellow).
Bumblejazz
Looks pretty cool.
Spoiler
The color looks off because we are so used to the normal colors. I don't mind it, we probably won't see him in car mode for more than 30 seconds worth of screen time anyways.

Yeah, seeing how Hasbro just repaints a lot of their figures...we will probably just see the Voyager repainted again. Maybe even the deluxe too.

Yeah, finally with these pics, we can kill that "Topkick has been dropped because of GM bankrumpt, what will happen?!" talk.

Now, as for those drones. My guess, it is just that, those drones for the movie that they keep using.
Thundercrackah
Aww, I liked his original deco, especially the ecg thingy on the side.
Glad to see him back again though, despite his pathetic lack of screentime in RoTF he is still one of my fave movie bots along with Prime and Ironhide. I love his design, voice, weapons and what parts he actually had in TF1.

I'm fully expecting to see a retool of the new deluxe mold for TF3. It would dampen the blow for that figure not getting a proper release in my area.
Megatronwp38
Looks nice and I never realized that the Topkick, aka Ironhide, is dang near as big as Optimus's Peterbuilt mode.
Mister Gone
White and... aww green, halfway there TF4: G1 Colors!
D-Unit
I like that Ratchet has more white on him.
jetrex
I'm not thrilled with the look but at the same time I'm not hating it either.
garibaldiprime
Nice, i was hoping for something a little more imaginative then a simple repaint, but these colors work well for him and hopefully we'll get a better voyager toy based on the more accurate-looking deluxe toy with this paint scheme. Same goes for ironhide.
jamjam101
I like!

even though BB and Ratched are two different tones of yellow, it was really hard to distinguish the two when in same scene especially in first movie and Mission city
baggzey23
eaugh ugly

did someone polish that with sandpaper

why white/grey colour it looks stupid
Eric
Ratchet...actually looks better in those colors. I've been skipping out on his toys (though if the new Rescue Ratchet figure is a repaint of the deluxe figure, I may buy it), but if we get a Voyager-repaint in these colors, I might finally buy him.
DrLee
Surprised no one's really mentioned the 2 UAV's.... makes me think we might see one as a character...

Just for the record... i like both versions of Ratchet.
NeilD83
something about Ratchet looks unfinished, but i hope if they ever make a voyager toy of him, they better make a new mold with better weapons!!!
VBBN
Nothing too exciting, but certainly an improvement over the pea green.
exclusacon
the new tuner mudflap....why can't he just be white and red?
Starscream NZ
In regards to the UAV's - could one potentially be Silverbolt?
kajobaldisimo
white and red won't make sense on ratchet or for being a 'fire department' vehicle so yeah... (end of sarcasm)

Maybe, but wouldn't that be lame?
Magneticus
i am loving this color

more or less conforms to Ratchet's G1 color so this is the perfect Ratchet design for me so far, barring any future incarnations of the Transformers live-action movies where we see a Ratchet design that surpasses this.
GODPRIMUS1975
Ratchet looks cool, love it
RipCurl
i wonder how they will explain this in the movie . why or how he got the new colour scheme . Me , Personally I dont like it. They should have changed the greeny colour imo
Magneticus
now, i just wish they would:

1) have Bumblebee have a face again and his teen-ager voice back.

2) have Starscream have his good-looking face back and put some itty, little bit of red hue or some red lines on his robot mode.

3) re-design Megatron so that his hands/arms don't necessarily look like crab arms/hands.

4) have the Fembots have sexy and sleek bodies with gorgeous faces that conform to their G1 appearances, make their CGI designs so they will be attractive even to male standards of beauty and sexiness.

do all that, then i'll be a happy camper

I posted these in the "brief filming video" topic:

New video is up showing our possible first looks at some new cars.





Paxtin
I like it. I don't see anything wrong with it.
If they end up repainting that Deluxe in these colors, that'll give me a nice excuse to buy that mold. If they do a completly new Voyager, I'll actually be kind of surprised.

They probably wont. I don't think there's all that many people that really care about the exposition on a slight redeco. If he was a completely different vehicle, then I'd wonder what'd be up with that.

He never had one to begin with. ZING!
Challenger
I like Rachet's new look. I kind of hope he'll get more screen time and lines in Transformers 3 and I also hope Bumblebee will finally be able to talk in this one.
Shadowbreaker
I really hope they do the Deluxe in those colors for the movie.
Cyber-Scream
Failed attempt to make him look G1? Not liking.
Anguish
I like it. This alt mode deco looks more believable. In the first movie I thought that Ratchet looked like a movie prop. This looks like something you might actually see at the scene of a hazmat response or major fire response in a big city.

I really think that second one is no ordinary vehicle.
moreprimeland
Not overly impressed..I have 07 Red/white Ratchet and 09 Green Ratchet, so enough of that vehicle..maybe they should have given him a new vehicle mode instead of just a so-so paint job

Well that's the Volt I believe. So it looks like Jolt is getting a black redeco?

Deadend?

I thought that was Mudflap at first,(The oragne/copper one.) but it actually looks to be a different car. Fact most of these could realy just be personal crew cars for all we know. lol Though that Deadend looking one is interesting.
webz
I LOVE the topkick. Seriously makes me want to embrace my redneck roots...

Saw a "new" Peterbuilt truck on the highway. HUGE. It was a good 12ft tall, double-wide cabin, but looked very similar to the current movie Prime rig. The thing was a MONSTER. If Prime scanned that truck, he'd EASILY be to scale with Megatron and Starscream in the movies.

The second and third picture are the same car. Also that's not jolt in the first picture, this is what a Chevy Volt looks like from the front:
