    As yesterday, please keep the discussion about the TOY, not the reviewer.

    Yeah, I was thinking of doing that too, so I guess I can justify having two Ratchets from the same line.

    Yeah, I'm disappointed this doesn't come with the same accessories as the Siege version. I think when I compare them, I prefer the Siege version, but I don't hate this one... but the Siege one has a more cohesive look and my only gripe is the battle damage which looks a lot worse on a white figure.

    I already pre-ordered this guy, but I think you can get some fun out of having both, especially thanks to the accessories. I mean, I'm already picturing the medical sled with the shield, med bay with Siege and a med unit with Ratchet, Lifeline and Red Alert.

    Can't say I disagree with Tonton's assessment of the figure. I'm glad I cancelled my pre-order for Ironhide. God, those stupid giant feet. They were too big on the Siege versions, and they're waaaay too big on these.

    Oh well; the rest of the upcoming figures look amazing. Especially Warpath, Cheetor, and Black Arachnia.

    If ER Ratchet had a new accessory, I wouldn't mind as much (I'm the guy who bought Siege Optimus for the accessories to give to ER Optimus). But it's just a white version of what his Siege version already has, so it make me big sad :(

    Huh. As long as I can get some red on him (especially the helmet - I\'m a Red Helmet Ratchet truther) he looks fine.

    A decent 3P kit would offer the following:
    • A set of crawler treads that plug into the roof of the van and allow it to be a little treaded stretcher thing like the G1 toy. They fold up and can stash in the ambulance mode in the cavity made from opening the legs up.
    • A piece that allows you to mount the pistol on the sled.
    • Foot fillers that resemble the back of an ambulance (clear plastic \"glass\" not required, but fake door detailing, please).
    And then you slap paint and reprolabels on him and you\'re good to go.

    I did not jam through all 48 pages, you got me. :)  I just feel so stupid I didn't notice it until the SG teal toesies smacked me in the face that I had to say something. It wasn't my most clever post, but I'm sure I've done worse haha

    I still think this is a very valid question (and criticism and or something that makes the figure a bit weaker in my book)....I don't get it other than it was easier, unless it is a case like Optimus Prime's gray hands....

    Again, I get that he has different looks, but nearly every single figure of him has had red hands. For example, I like many others, like his red helmet (though I would have thought for this release they would go for the cartoon look, which again, has more red on his legs, hands, etc.).

    For a good while at first, every time I checked it said it was unavailable. I thought it had sold out shortly after the announcement.

    I know the game but nope, never played it. I dunno if the term is referenced in it but it must be a coincidence.

    Looks like he's in Chile so that's probably why he wasn't able to order it until now. As far as the US is concerned I don't believe it's ever actually sold out. It's weird that Amazon is having this issue with some of their listings... either that or it's something they've been doing on purpose.

    Definitely, it's the second combat level after Harmless :) .
