I went ahead and picked it up. A little small but overall not to bad, plus it is nice having a different mold.

Thoughts......

That's actually not as bad as I thought it'd be. Vehicle mode really fits in with the Classics Autobots quite well. The bot mode also doesn't look terribly out of place. The only aspects of the bot mode that don't work, in my opinion, are the feet (far too rounded) and the head sculpt (too long). If he were given an alternate head, it'd actually work, though.

Hmm, that does look pretty good. I've been considering Prime RiD Ratchet for my Classics shelf, the separate mold would differentiate him from Ironhide. Or I might just leave my Universe Ratchet in his place and pick up RiD Ratchet just for fun. He really does look like a great figure.

The robot mode works, but the alt mode doesn't fit in. It's too small and movie inspired.

This is what I'm gonna do as well.

If you think he fits in your own universe, go for it. Wait, there were pictures. See, I think he fits well. Only the alt mode is kind of small, though. Well, blame that on Hasbro.

It fits well enough. Many of the later classics have a different sort of feel to them anyway, like G2 Prime and Perceptor.

I've seen this done before and the alt mode is just a tad small, but I don't keep my TF's in alt mode. Bot mode is nicely sized, but there is one lil thing that made me NOT get him and do the swap. My classics display does have a certain look to them, you can see parts of their alt modes in their bot modes. Ex. Sideswipe's car hood is his chest. Or the roof of the car the chest like BB. With PRiD Ratchet, as fine of a figure as it is, there is nothing about his alt mode that is represented in his bot mode. It's just that little detail that made me not to this. So close, really! I am not a fan of classics Ratchet/Ironhide and would love to swap them out, but I will have to wait for a more suitable figure.

It looks good to me. I think certain Prime figures could fit it, if you feel that that version fits well in. Not many, but yeah, that works.

the ambulance looks pretty tiny, but I do like him in robot mode. works fine with the rest of them.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I did the swap this past week. Found the Prime Ratchet & he's just a better figure overall. The Universe Ratchet was kind of a rush job on turning Iron Hide into Ratchet. At least now on my classics shelf Ratchet has a different look then just a repainted Ironhide. I liked the new Ratchet so much I sold my Unverse one on ebay. Hope I don't change my mind & regret that... :D

I really wouldn't have picked Ratchet up for that purpose, but based on those pics it might work.

Btw, for those of you who didn't buy Universe Ratchet based on not liking Ironhide, Ratchet actually came out much better.

The deco might be better, but with all the things wrong with that mold, the deco isn't even in the top 5.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but the smurfy blue Ironhide face was more annoying to me than the head tilt.

I was thinking this as well Prime Ratchet looks very similar to the current IDW version!
