    Yup....this makes the Siege one look better in comparison. Especially with those accessories. As always, it's not my cup of tea on that figure. But if you are excited to get him, I think that's pretty cool based on taste.

    For an exclusive this needs way more paint.

    I forgive the giant shield on Ratchet because I see him using it as a giant scalpel on a Titan. XD

    Yes! Yes! Yes, he has the white thighs! He better have those white thighs when my copy comes, and if he does i will be so happy, I wouldn\'t have to worry about the gray thighs now, but for the gray hands I can just paint those red and i\'ll probably find some random ambulance stickers to slap on him, I will make the perfect ratchet!

    Oh and by the way this ratchet doesn\'t look that bad to me, it is the only g1 accurate earthmode ratchet figure we\'ll ever get, I still love this ratchet even when its not perfect.

    He's going to impale Megatron on it right before he paints his helmet red and crest white!

    I would not have minded kibble on the arm and legs and back if it would have removed the \"shield\". Even in robot mode it doesn\'t store well at all. I would even accept if it folded. I kind of feel like Hasbro commited a foul. And I know their designs are a huge challenge at this scale but those old IGears figures weren\'t much larger.

    Yeah, but iGear can put as much budget into their figures they want and then charge whatever they feel like it once it's done. Hasbro has limits set by their budget and price point. That said; I do think that they could have alleviated the issue by making new earth molds for Ironhide/Ratchet instead of making them retools of the Siege version of the mold. All the compromises for Earthrise Ironhide and Ratchet come from the fact that they are retooled from the Siege mold.

    You don't need Ratchet for that. If I were to use it for a stretcher I would use Ironhide's riot shield.

    I'll be transferring my Rachet upgrade kit for Seige to ER. Not needs his tools.

    I’m still on the fence with this guy. I have the Siege Ratchet and I’m perfectly happy with its design for my collection. I can also take or leave Lifeline. I plan on getting Elita-1 and possibly Arcee. I feel like I don’t really need three of the same mold. I don’t know. I have this pack on preorder but I might cancel it.

    I said this before. Hasbro should make another weapons pack and include the parts to recreate the battle platform.

    I liked the figure better with the grey thighs, might reconsider the two-pack and stick with Siege Ratchet...

    Oh my, I hope he ends up with the grey thighs in the final product. I didn\'t read much about this so not sure if that was answered or not. Besides that he still looks great.

    Usually, what ends up in the hands of reviewers like TonTon is pretty much the final product, so expect white thighs.

    The Igear Ironhide and Ratchet? Dude, those were pretty big compared to a WFC Deluxe
