    I was hoping they would repaint Ratchet, because I never got him the first time around, and would like medic for my movie Bots.

    But he looks very, very dull.

    ..."for once"? :(  But I don't recall ever disagreeing with you about anything! Are you telling me I had a secret nemesis all this time, and I never even realised?

    I don't buy the FABs anyway, so Starscream is a pass.

    I call prototype on Ratchet. The toy looks woefully underpainted for a figure intended for release.

    At least we know Ratchet will be in the movie toyline-I was wondering where he was given his status among the Autobots.

    I love Ratchet a lot, but not nearly enough to buy the mold a fourth time for THAT.

    Bruticus is, well, not surprising. Not sure I'll get him or Superion. I have no interest in FAB Starscream, though the tats are looking nice on it (getting the Voyager). Voyager Ratchet isn't different enough so far to warrant a purchase. Though I can see him being usefully for a repaint at some point. If he has any retooling done to him, he'll be more buyable. Will have to wait for more pictures to decide, though I have a feeling I won't be getting him again, unless they do another repaint that's much further from the original (kinda like the white & red one).

    Ratchet may not be completed yet, this is true. However, I sincerely doubt they're going to change his colors a great deal from what's shown there, at this point.

    He might be slightly remolded a bit on his head or something, or a new gun for his right arm instead of the axe, but nothing so outstanding that I feel a need to rebuy him.

    In fact, compared to this picture, I look at my Ratchet (painted details, looks better than the Premium) and see how much nicer mine is.

    Ratchet's an EASY pass for me. So is FAB Starscream, but then again...I don't collect FABs. I only purchased Frenzy because it was as close to a Deluxe transformation for the character as we were going to get.

    Apparently being a bright yellow hummer ambulance was too conspicuous for Ratchet, so he painted his tires grey to better blend in and be more "in disguise". Yeaper...

    The light Grey Tires are very disapointing i'd rather of had a Ratchet that was a medium yellow or desert tan decked out like a Military Ambulance than have him look like an after thought or a way to use up left over grey plastic.

    At least it bares some slight resemblance to the FAB version... though I'd really been hopping for the colors of the Legends toy to be used on the Voyager. I also would have liked new weapons for the robot mode.

    It's a shame that Starscream's FAB was not redone the 1st one is very poor with parts that never quite fit and an arm that barely works.

    It migth be improved if they do what was done with the Robotmaster Flipchanger and reduce the size of his body gap and rejig the parts a bit - but I suspect he's unchanged - which is a shame.

    He's never been anywhere near as good as either of the Optimus Molds - and is probably inferior to Jolt or the Twin as well.

    It's a mold that is underdesigned - much as Bumblebee and Jazz's FAB's never really worked as well as you'd have hoped for them too either.
