For a split second I thought: 'ROLLBAR!' But then I realised that is was, in fact, that horrible Ratchet retool.

That Ratchet repaint is actually movie Ratchet who traveled into the Prime universe. He must have sided with the Decepticons because they were the murderous crazy ones, just like his Autobots back home.

Actually, I find it more plausible that it's the weird Shattered Glass Ratchet. Who's the better medic? Better question: who cares? ;)

Maybe this will be BW Dinobot in Go.

Hardly, the kana still read "Hunter Ratchet". Besides, there's no word on the "Hunters" actually appearing in the anime. Optimus doesn't really count, as he's noting more than a cardboard cutout :lol:

Hunter Ratchet is a Decepticon? :shock:

We need to see (an English translation of) his bio, please. ;)

Once it comes out, that is.

Prime Ratchet, with Dinobot-ish greebles, in Movie Ratchet's colors, and a :CON: insignia? What is going on there?

I quite like that Hun-Grrrr repaint.

"Dark Medic"/"Medic of Darkness" (闇の看護員) is Hunter Ratchet's function.

Not questioning anyone's translation skills, but are we sure this is Ratchet, and not some other Decepticon with a completely different name and bio? I just can't see this being Ratchet, I can't. I understand how it could be, with Ratchet temporarily helping the Decepticons with the Synthetic Energon formula, but I don't know. :???:

Well, ハンターラチェット = Hantā Rachetto = "Hunter Ratchet". ;)

Plus, the backstory go Go! doesn't quite seem to match up perfectly with season 3, so there's room for this toy's bio to conflict with the character's portrayal in the third season of the cartoon.

And now we finally know the names of the five Jaki who combine to form Goradora:
  • Dorara - Hun-Gurrr redeco, based on Dragotron
  • Barara - Windrazor redeco, based on Bakudora
  • Garara - Twinstrike redeco, based on Gaidora
  • Jurara - Rippersnapper redeco, based on Judora
  • Burara - Blight redeco, based on Budora

Generic names for generic henchmen. Makes sense.

I can see myself picking up the Predacons from Go. Not much of the other stuff interests me, though that is a pretty neat-o Ratchet redeco.
