    Genius! You should be appointed CEO of Hasbro since that thinking is on the same wavelength. Hey, I'll start liking them more when they do Takara-level detailing and paint application.

    Keep in mind, though, that those Cyberglyphs were a common theme in the RotF line; many Transformers had them. There's no need to randomly put them on this new Ratchet deco when it makes it less accurate in regards to his DotM paint job.

    And do you know what's funny as well? I wanted the deluxe but couldn't find it. No wait, that's incorrect, I found a repaint. I didn't even know they made one.

    Why do people hate this mold so much? Give Ratchet a break.

    Heeeeyy... I didn't see it before, but you can see the red paint apps on the shoulders, its a custom. A shitty custom, but a custom none the less.

    I could swing for this color scheme on the deluxe, though I'd prefer a new mold.

    If this IS a real figure, my money's on it being an exclusive of some sort, just like how ROTF reused plenty of old molds for exclusives.

    This is what I want to know. I mean, why would a customiser NOT paint the door the same shade of white as the rest of the figure? Hasbro toys do that all the time, but a customiser?

    Maybe this customizer is cheap and he used white paint only where he couldn't/didn't want to replace parts with Rescue Ratchet parts.

    Looking closer at the pictures, I'm beginning to think it's actually a ko. One of those well made ko's, but a ko all the same. His windshield pieces and windows appear to be solid plastic. Every use of this mold, as far as I can tell anyways, has had translucent windows. Seems odd that after all the other uses, this would be the one they make the window's solid on.

    I love this mold, but please no more!!!

    Besides rotf Ratchet is still warming shelves everywhere and the only wave of the HFTD line they released in my country was wave 1, and guess who's back on the shelves with a nice burglar outfit? Night Ops Ratchet! And now the new line is probably going to start with yet another repaint of this mold... I realy hope this is a KO!

    Or else: Hasbro please, if you decide to release only a few figures on some european markets, please please please see that these are at least A SELECTED FEW, instead of giving us the same figure over and over and over again, to the detriment of new molds!

    Why? WHY? There was a perfectly fine deluxe mold with better proportions, and they made... this.
