Courtesy of Amazon Japan we have some nice high quality official images of the upcoming Takara Tomy Transformers Go! figures G19 Hunter Ratchet, G08 Budora, G09 Goradora Set, G10 Hishoumaru. According to previous hobby magazine scans this version of Ratchet is actually a Decepticon. We also get a nice look at one the Swordbot Shinobi Team's combined modes. Check out the images mirrored below.

That Ratchet is way more than an homage to Dinobot, they have to be doing something Dinobot related with that mold... eventually

And I'm actually tempted by this guy, he has so much potential for repurposing.
"I have Autism and I'm proud of it!" - Myself

"If you try to please everyone, nobody will like it" - a very wise guy.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Landfill (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Takara, what have you done? :shock: :-(
Though that ratchet looks, a little better, why a decepticon????
:-x That's the last straw, all of these look terrible.

I've gotta say, it's curious. Usually Takara is on top of these homages, and they really missed a good chance for a really good Dinobot/II deco.

What do they do instead? MOVIE (or SG) RATCHET! #-o

This Ratchet is great but it would have been perfect had his right eye not been left this way. C'mon Takara I don't have the talent to fix your unpainted mistakes! :BANG_HEAD:

So some suggestion's on who this TF can pass for? He definitely isn't going to be Ratchet in my fold. :VEHI:

That green and black make Ratchet look so different and EVIL. :twisted:
I'm not even recognizing it as him. I really wish I could get him but I can't spend money on a straight repaint.

Ratchet reminds of the original Dinobot.


And Abominus looks cool from this angle.

Weapon: Ionic Blaster
You gotta love those Go! figures, especially with their uniformal color schemes (though my copy of Cheetimus Prime's Terrorsaur redeco, Classics Brawn and blue Smokescreen form Prime were used from the Hasbro versions), except Bee and Predaking/Dragotron had small changes. But with Ratchet having red eyes and windows, would he:

A) He would die and later get rebuilt by the Decepticons?
OR
B) Disguise himself as a new Decepticon to tell his comrades about the Cons' plans?

Let's just stick with the latter, shall we?

Het, didn't we see Gradora and Budora's photo's before???

I am really digging the Predacon redecos/repaints, especially Budora.

I also like the Cybertron combiner teams. Sure, their combined forms look a bit off, but the individual members look awesome. Please make them available in the U.S., Hasbro!

Autobot. Takara uses Hasbro terms these days (save for Masterpieces and Encores). ;)
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

2007, with the Movie 1 toys. Since then, the Japanese toylines of ROTF, Animated, Autobot Alliance, United, DOTM, the final toys of Alternity, Prime Arms Micron, and Generations have all used Hasbro (or Hasbro-based) names.

Only Takara TF toylines that still don't are Masterpiece and Encore. :-B
