Alex Kingdom wrote:It's not great, not by a long chalk, but it does retain more of Ratchets orignial colours and a head sculpt that bears a passing resemblance to G1 Ratchet. This design appears to more along the same lines as the Bumblebee and Prime designs, a radical update and redesign but retaining features of the original character. I'd have been more comfortable with this Ratchet than the one chosen.

Yours AK



I completely agree, i felt the Movie Ratchet was too brawny and bulky and not like the original.. I wish this was the design chosen

I'm a dumbass. When I had posted my quoted comment, I had forgotten just how bad the Ratchet design they ended up using is.

The only things I like better with this one is the colour scheme and the head.

The filmmakers probably thought another red autobot would clash with Prime...

it looks good. but that red paint in bot mode kills it. i dont think its a real pic because they already have a yellow ratchet toy, unless they make another ratchet(repaint?)

okay guys to clear things up a bit here, this image has surfaced the first time out when the other ones did. but, they removed and changed it to that butt ugly peice of junk they call a transformer.

my opinion on michael bay's attempt at actual live action tf is that this guy don't know jack squat about tf. otherwise he would know they never looked like blanking insects., go back to classes you moron and learn what all us tf fans know what real transformers actually look like.

I rather like this one better, colors are better and all. I don't know about him being a beach patrol? It's cool none the less.

Simmer down, we went over that tons of times. Nothing can be change now, so let's hope it's still a awsome movie, and move on. I'm sure there be lots of this movie will be right on, and we enjoy the amazing visual effects. So, the Transformers look awful, well, let's make the most of it, and have fun. :)

How's this. You knock off the bashing of Bay in a topic that is discussing a drawing, and I'll forget you went ape **** in only your second post.

I really dig this design better than the one chosen. Guess this one doesn't look "alien" enough. All I can say is, this movie better be worth the hype it is getting.

I really like this version. If it can't be Ratchet though, I'm sure it can be Red Alert. Too good a design to pass up if you ask me.

He has a normal gun. No stupid arm cannon. I like this Ratchet better. All it needs is to be white. But since its not being used then it should be used for Red Alert in the next movie. But knowing Bay he'll make it Inferno.

Ok lets not kill this guy on his post, he's just a noob and hasn't seen all the Bay-Bashing we went through Last year, but I do have to say, regardless of the awful neon ratchet, I hope this design in reused in the sequel as a red alert, i would definately buy that as a toy..

If they had this on the drawing board why did they revamp it to be tennis ball yellow with a squashed version of bigbird's head?
