Yay! A Ratchet that looks like Ratchet! I'm sold on him now. He's not all kibbly or have a very randomly designed alt-mode. That MechTech feature is cool too. I don't understand what people are yelling about with this guy.

there are a few annoyances i have with this review..
calling the mechtech weapon beautiful... i don't think so. hasbro never has a problem with sculpting. takara never really adds details to main line movie figures. there are special editions like buster and the mpm line, and as in the case with demolishor and rampage the entire scheme is completely different. so i really don't see takara adding any extra paint to this figure. really could've done without the music/sped up transformation. i always thought transformers reviews were more of a three step process.. alt mode, transformation, robot mode.. after all they are transformers. 0kay.. enough of my bitching.
this figure is no better and no worse than the other ratchets we've seen. the shoulders are terribly atrocious, the legs look horrible.. they remind me of movie one deluxe barricade.
and he keeps saying big and chunky.. but ratchet isn't supposed to be chunky. ironhide is the figure that's supposed to be chunky.
oh well. one deluxe ratchet is enough. this should've been a voyager. a new voyager mold would've been nice. i really wish they tried to make their scaling a bit more accurate. like we see crankcase and ironhide fight, well, we're getting a new voyager ironhide.. but only a deluxe crankcase.. or like movie one, we get a leader/voyager prime.. yet we get a small deluxe bonecrusher.
oh well. it looks okay. it definitely doesn't look like anything special, and it'll probably clog the shelves like i assume skids and mudflap will.

This is the reason I rely on Peaugh for my Figure reviews..This guy sounds like he's dating ratchet..So they remolded a shelfwarmer to be a.......shelfwarmer....~waits for the inevtiable rescue repaint~

I do like this guy quite a bit. He is not too chunky, not to skinny to be Ratchet and I think his proportions are quite nice and accurate to the movie. The back kibble is meh, and the mechtech is dumb, and hilariously bad, but what're you gonna do? I passed on the voyager for obvious reasons, and the older deluxes never showed up to my area so now I'm gonna get me a Ratchet! Only took me 3 movies.
