    Ratchet looks pretty cool, I'll give him that.

    We don't need another Optimus...

    Funny. I actually thought that the Strongarm mold made for a good Small Foot or even Greejeeber from Adventure. I never pictured Ratchet from that mold but may as well make him a pickup since Ironhide is one.

    I'm up for Optimus persinally; I rather like the legion mold and more importantly it's a Diaclone homage which I absolutely adore. Ratchet's also pretty cool but I do feel more excited for that Optimus.

    Ratchet is pretty cool, but I think I will stay with my DOTM Ratchet for my Legion Autobot ranks. Glad to see the Legion side still being supported!

    Good to see Strongarm legion mold in more use. It's a great mold for this size class.

    The entire torso is retooled. No curved perky chestplates, some more detailing on pecs and he's more bulky in the waist. Otherwise it would end with a very feminine-shaped Ratchet. :p 

    I don't need one more Optimus Prime, though this paintjob may work better as a Legion-sized Ultra Magnus for my collection. Makes him look closer to TPF UM than this white OP legion repaint.

    Ratchet? They did a good job with Strongarm's mould. I hope this means something...

    Wow. I'm surprised by how well Strongarm's design works for Ratchet. Since I don't collect the Legions, I'd love to see Warrior Strongarm be retooled into Ratchet down the line.

    Third-ed, lol.

    The only thing to retool would be a chestplate and torso to get rid of Strongarm's thin waist and plated boobs. And a new head, obviously.

    Good for those that don't have him, but no reason to replace my Prime Legion Ratchet.

    Actually, the head sculpt looks MUCH nicer to me. Sure the vehicle mode is different, but the robot mode is a major improvement.

    Now that you say that, I think a Prime/G1ish Dlx Ratchet out of Strongarm could really work out well.
