    So I guess that confirms that Hasbro is now simply using the gimmick name as part of the trademark claim for Ratchet and Brawl, rather than claiming "Ratchet" and "Brawl" without "Autobot" or "Decepticon" prefixes as trademarks.

    Good substitute for Botcon '05 Ratchet for those wanting to kitbash a Ratchet for their Classics collection...

    Nurse Ratchet reborn! :lol  So, I guess Hasbro's going to repaint all the FABs. Wouldn't put it past them. Although, Night Attack Megatron does look pretty slick. I'd prefer a black Leader Megs, however.

    Hmm, if anyone figures out how to kitbash this ratchet into Cybertron animated ratchet, then I might buy.

    They will further the RIRFIBFIRRIBWTF by making it Purple. Retina-searing Universe 1.0-esque Purple.

    Aaaaaand the bios on the back confirm that the names are indeed still "Decpeticon Brawl" and "Autobot Ratchet".

    I'm pretty sure that the thing with these recolours are because of the upcoming tf 2 toy production. as the prototypes of those need to be developed leaving little to no time in making newer moulds for these. But after those are developed we might be getting more newer models.:)

    Hah, even the package images on the repaints uses Megatron's old head, you'd think they would have time enough to fix that.

    Megatron looks horrible with a black body and a grey head.

    I think he looks magnificent, to the point where I wish Megatron had originally had this color scheme.

    And FAB Rescue Ratchet looks pretty good, the paint deco being a bit better than mainline Rescue Ratchet, due to more red, IMO.

    I kinda like all three, but I would have to go with Brawl as being my favorite.

    NIIIIICE! I was hoping they'd use those colors on FAB Ratch. Now I can finally get a decent looking Ratchet that's close to scale with my deluxe cars.
