    I’ll say it here. DOTM ratchet was a greyish silver in the film. White is the best way to represent that as a deluxe.

    Regardless of whether the color is accurate or not, I am really digging the DOTM deco on SS Ratchet mold than the first version's. Definitely plan on picking up this one to go with the aforementioned previous SS version in my Ratchet Army....I mean Ratchet themed shelf. :p

    I feel the same way. The gray just looks boring and doesn't make the figure pop like I think it would with white instead.

    I know white isn't accurate I've been posting pictures of the real prop vehicle to show people that it isn't accurate.
    I was answering the question "Where does everyone get white from"
    Answer: because All of dotm ratchets toys were a bright white and green instead of the screen accurate greyish color.

    If he was a voyager, I'd buy. Too small for what I want.

    Though inaccurate I think white works better in contrast with Ratchet’s green.

    The paintjob succeeds in where 07 failed and fails in where 07 succeeded. The head is better but the arms & legs are even worse than 07 who IIRC was mostly eye-gauging green with slight hints of silver. One thing DOTM nailed over 07 hands down is the the vehicle paintjob.

    To be honest I don’t really regret getting 07 over this guy. Both figures needed a lot of black and silver for their details to shine, DOTM just needed a little less IMO

    Maybe they should've just used a lighter shade of grey....

    SS strives for scale accuracy. With Deluxes shrunken into Scouts, Ratchet scaled well as a Voyager in the ROTF days but not anymore.

    That really is the problem--everything has been so shrunk down. They could have strived for scale accuracy at normal sizes and it all would have worked. I saw Jazz in person and he is an absolute scout-class from back in the day. Packaged in a $20 box. It's one of the major reasons the only SS figure I've bought so far has been Blackout. No plans to buy any of the others.

    Found these at Target.com. They're not directly accessible yet, but I found them thanks to a backdoor via Brickseek:
