Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Official Chinese Toy Website Launch And Images

Transformers-3-Dark-of-the-Moon-China-1
Hasbro has launched their Official Chinese Transformers: Dark of the Moon website, along with upcoming toys.

Transformers 3 Deluxe Movie Ratchet repaint is very similar to the original concept art Ratchet for the 2007 movie.

You can visit the Mini-Blog here and the Chinese Site here.

Huh...Starscream has YELLOW eyes, while everyone else lines up to the typical red/blue thing. I wonder if that was just a mistake...
Anguirus
'Tis, although that seems to be a compulsive repaint for Hasbro. I actually prefer movie Ratchet's colors on movie Ratchet though.

Nice images. That Ratchet repaint actually looks pretty good. Definitely better than the green & white deco. I might actually get this version of it. Not a fan of the Mechtech weapon the first version comes with, but I do like the Skids one, so Ratchet coming with a repaint of it helps a bit. The deco on this repaint reminds me of Universe Ratchet (the RID X-Brawn repaint).

The headshots used for packaging are nice. It's just too bad that the Megatron one has that weird stroke on it.

Actually... images of t.sina.com are allowed to do that...

That movie Ratchet repaint looks like it's supposed to be a homage to the original Inferno design way back from the first movie, before they chose Ratchet.

Since I don't read Chinese, there's no way for me to confirm that the blog site actually allows for multiple hi-res images to be hotlinked on other sites. If you would like to post the pictures in the thread, please use one of the established free photo hosting services. Thanks.

I was thinking the same thing.
miscreant
That Ratchet is bought.
Blitz.
Ratchet is rather interesting but honestly while the ratchet design is one on my favs it really needs a new design
Solrac333
Ratchet looks AWESOME!
Soulmaster
if that ratchet would had a new head, he would be mine (and named Inferno), but with the original head, looks a bit... "old" xD big beard and white hair... leave that to Einstein-bot
Axel990
So I'm starting to feel 99.99% positive that we won't be getting a new Voyager class Ratchet, other than a repaint
Liam Prime
that does look a cool ratchet. im hoping its a new voyager mould and not a deluxe. you can tell it isnt either the voyager or deluxe weve seen berfore cos its got a longer back on the vehicle and differnt shaped shoulders in robot mode.

Yeah. What's funny is that we are actually are getting another Voy. Ratchet repaint for DOTM. Luckily, it's just a Target exclusive, so it won't be everywhere, but still.

I really dig this red repaint. What had really held me back from getting behind the new deluxe DOTM Ratchet was its visual similarity to ROTF NEST Ratchet (yes, I know it's a totally different mold, and it's got a slightly different deco, but still). However, I really hope that, if this red version gets a domestic release, they keep the buzzsaw of the first release and not Skids' gun.

It's a repaint of the new Deluxe class mold that's being released in the first wave of the DotM toyline... (aka this guy)

I'm pretty sure this is the Hasbro/domestic release of this repaint. Takara tends to not photoshop their official photos like Hasbro does.

I always preferred the Concept Ratchet over what we got (not just the colors, but the design itself). The new Ratchet mold in these colors looks nice to me. I doubt I'll buy it, though.

Photobucket is kinda mad at me today~~ Anyways, they're all relocated elsewhere now.
Thanks for your concern.
Ratchets Hatch
I'm definitely getting the movie green version, but I may get this one as well for the G1 goodness.
Foster
Don't bullshit me, Hasbro. I know exactly what shade of gray that BlechTech weapon will be molded in.
Yaujta
What's with Shockwave having the cannon on his left arm? Wondering if it's just mirrored, or a design change.
Either way, the muted purple and darker gray say I'll be paying a silly amount to get the Takara version.
Ra88
Never really liked the white repaints of Ratchet (they end up looking a bit cheap), but this looks great! I might have to pick it up should I see it.

This' a shame that its just a repaint though,a new head would make it quite a interesting addition,looks like the head design might just stay as just a non-toy design. unless some third party people spruce up one (or hasbro makes a Kre-o robot head (if the heads are deluxe size) set,c'mon it might work.) . still i might pick that ratchet repaint after i get two of the original dotm release though. one to keep and one to,well convert it into cannonball. if things go as plan.
Bgrngod
Wow, Ratchet looks like a badass in that deco. Hrm. Tempting.
Moy
Man that Barricade is so off.

Darn, I'd wish they'd used official ILM renders for the toys.

Tempting Indeed,but who knows,maybe he might not be called Ratchet,maybe they might call him Inferno or Red alert,hey,if Starscream got a repaint as Thundercracker,why not make the repainted Ratchet pose as movie Inferno/Red alert/Etc.? i see it as that,kinda.
SPLIT LIP
Shockwave is such a boss.

Indeed.
Rijie78
That deluxe Ratchet actually looks pretty good, but of course it would in Photoshop. Still, if there's a Takara version in that deco, that might live up to it. I hope the same level of finish and metallic paint apps they've used on Animated & United will carry over to their DOTM line.

Amusingly, Shockwave's bot mode photo has been flipped horizontally, but the alt mode hasn't.
AMG
Can't wait to get Shockwave.

red ratchet=bought

Sheeeeeeeiiiiit....See what I mean about not jumpin on all these deluxes? There will be soo many repaints and boxed sets to choose from...

I really wonder why they don't do that anymore. ROTF had official renders, so why not DOTM?
Bumblethumper
Those character renders are pretty awful. Do Hasbro not have access to the ILM models? Sorta looks like they've remodelled their own versions with only low-res images to go by.

I still think we could.

Though it may not show up until a later subline, like if they do a follow on movie line like NEST or HFTD.
Hiro Prime
That Ratchet is so going to be renamed as First Aid in my collection.

has barricade got a police badge as his mouth?

Great mold, BAD paint.

oh shit it is i didnt pay much attention to that toy pic. i thought is was a repaint of the n.e.s.t. deluxe from last year. but now that i look at it more closely

its about time they made a new voyager ratchet mould though. theyve used the first mvie one too much, and to be honest its not all that brilliant
Autobot Burnout
That Ratchet looks cool, certainly reminecent of the original concept (which in my opinion looked pretty cool as well). Might pick him up.

Also; LOVE Topspin's little bust/profile image. It gives him a lot of character in my opinion, which is hard to do with movie styles I think
U.Magnus80
I know I'm beating a dead horse here, but seriously? A red Ratchet repaint? Would've liked to see em use that red on an Ironhide.
Shizuka
Give me a new voyager Ratchet or else, it won't be pretty for anyone.

Plus wicked CGI.

It's a reference to when Inferno was in the movie cast (and had an early design with these colours) before he was replaced by Ratchet.

I don't think that Topkick looks good in red. Photos of the production Topkick in red makes it look kind of ordinary (well, as ordinary as a medium duty truck with a pickup bed can be).

Slap the yellow line across the body and give it some mud splatter around the wheels ala AllSpark Power Offroad Ironhide. And give it an Oregon licence plate.

No more ordinary Topkick.

I'm actually gonna use this as my Classics Ironhide, since the real one has so many flaws. With a head swap, it could work beautifully.

Was it ever said that it was originally going to be Inferno? I can't remember if it was, or if it was just an early concept for Ratchet that just happened to look more like Inferno (to us fans anyways).

I was wondering when someone would bring up Ironhide. At this point it almost seems like they're avoiding a Deluxe/Voyager red Ironhide repaint on purpose, lol.

I'm going to guess that this Ratchet repaint is part of wave 3, and that Thundercracker, Nitro Bumblebee, and Mudflap will probably be his wave mates.
Foster
They could do Leader Ironhide in red with removable head, for the double homage.

Fair enough. I actually didn't get back into buying TFs until AFTER I had seen the first movie. So all the concepts and stuff leading up to it, I never saw.

They are going to want to get the most out of those Leader class molds, so a red repaint would make sense. Would also differentiate itself from the original version enough to justify a release.

that rachet will be mine it looks sweet

A red repaint of Ironhide has made sense for a long time. So far all we've got is the Legends figure in red. Hasbro seems more likely to do other decos instead.
