Another amazing piece of crap from the "masters" over at Takara making the Hasbro one look 10x better....again.

I like it a lot more than the Hasbro version, but why make him a Con'? :???:

I just did a head count of Bots vs. Cons, and coupled with Ratchet's redesign based on a BW Predacon, I'd say it was to even out the sides a bit. I mean, look:

Autobots
1) Optimus Prime
2) Smokescreen
3) Bumblebee
4) Bulkhead
5) Wheeljack
6) Arcee

Decepticons
1) Soundwave
2) Starscream
3) Shockwave
4) Ratchet

Should Knock Out and Dreadwing get a GO! release, everything evens out.

Wow, way to take a figure that is an obvious homage to a previous character and totally mess up the deco for him. If they had released him in a purple and metallic cream like TM2 Dinobot, I would have been all over this figure. Instead they went with a garish green. Seriously, this makes Hasbro's... Vomit colored version look much better.

well, I might have to get the Hasbro version to repaint.

Making it a new evil character and homaging the green movie (and ehobby) deco... this is one of the VERY FEW BH toys I'll be getting. Interesting. :-?

Its all because its so good to be bad! :CON: As Crosscheck stated a nice metallic purple deco would have been sweeter but this is not too bad IMO. I can't wait til its available so I can order him and Takara Smokescreen together. :DANCE: :VEHI:

Lookin' good, but not at the top of my "priority" list. I'm still aiming for PRiD & AM figures.

I just got this figure from HLJ earlier this morning. The gallery of Hunter Ratchet will be posted on Seibertron.com in the next 30 minutes or so.
