    As we all know, Ratchet is getting the hell blown out of him in these trailers, cruelly enough. But I had a thought about something.

    Somewhere (I don't remember if it was on-set or on the cargo truck) we've seen TWO of Ratchet's alt-mode. One clean, and one dirty. (Muddy and ridden with bullet-holes) As we've seen in the trailer, KSI (I think that's their name) shoot out one of his tires, making him transform. So that's where the clean alt-mode comes in. But as for the dirty one, could KSI just capture Ratchet to look good to the public and promote their man-made Transformers? Like what happened in Prime with Breakdown? Then Ratchet escapes, transforms into the dirty ambulance, and then gets murdered (by Lockdown, KSI, Galvatron, whatever) or meets up with the others? His voice actor is returning, so he'll have some lines.

    Just a thought. (or thoughts) What do YOU think?

    Interesting.

    It'd be nice if he lived (for me anyway), but I doubt it. He hasn't been spotted at Hong Kong, where the finale is supposed to be.

    Potential final scene seems to hint that only Drift, Hound, Crosshairs, Bumblebee and Optimus survive the film out of the car-bots.

    Leadfoot and Ratchet are nowhere to be seen so I doubt they survive.

    Kind of annoys me that they showed that.

    I'm sure his lines will just be begging for mercy.

    Well, they're all CGI, so who knows?

    That's assuming that very tight shot which only barely manages to include Crosshairs is in fact showing everyone and there's not characters off-screen, and that it is the final shot of the movie.

    The city in the background looks very...well, un-blown up for it being the final scene.

    Assuming they don't travel to another city after the final battle.

    Pretty sure his script is just "-Dying scream-".

    To be fair, the CGI may not be finished so maybe the city is supposed to be all blown up in that shot. Maybe. They've been tuning the CGI with every single TV spot.

    That said, Ratchet will have at least his typical three lines.

    After rummaging through my memories, I've totaled 19 lines from Ratchet in the entire trilogy. His most in a film was 10 in the 2007 film. Naturally, he had far more to say in the ROTF games and the Ride.

    He probably won't survive but I really wish he did because he's one of those characters like Ironhide you really wish wouldn't die...
