Worse than that : Movie Starscream with a G1 deco. Or Movie Jazz with a G1 deco.

One should note that virtually every large fire department in the country owns and operates ambulances, so I'm not surprised it says "fire department" on it. You could also consider it a vehicle for rescue apparatus such as the famous "jaws of life"...there isn't always room on the engines for them. Also, some states do use blue lightbars for EMS and S and R vehicles...it's not always blue and red or just red.
It finally happened. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Yes, I cried.

Wow. That is nothing short of awful.

Granted the color itself is no winner, from the getgo. However, it fits movie Ratchet because real rescue vehicles use that color, so I can forgive it. (I'm fine with it now, it grew on me.)

This...on the other hand, looks terrible in day-glo green. YUCK.

This is further proof that the G1 designs and the Movie designs do not mix well. Even if it's just the color issue.

Needs repro labels as the "Mystery Machine". Otherwise not interested. I would buy the original G1 colored one though.

Hideous! Looks like what Ratchet would look like if he was possessed and vomited green pea soup all over himself (aka The Exorcist)! BLECK!

I've vomited better color schemes. I like exclusives, but this fails on every level. I guess it doesn't help that I've hated this mold ever since the originals were out.

I got the impression it was a movie ratchet deco, but that deco is not even close to movie ratchet's color.

Hahaha. I'm so silly.

I hate G1 Ratchet's mold.
I hated the movie character.
I hated the movie.

But... I love Transformers in this color, so I'd buy it if I could.

It's a sickness, I tell you.

i really think it is a nice toy repaint, not for the fire department of course, but it should say something like Rescue or something like that. I have see minivans in that color scheme and i believe that if you see it from the Diaclone point of view, you get a very realistic toy.
