Greetings Seibertronians! It's back to the Earthrise portion of the Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Trilogy this time as YouTube toy reviewer, TonTon Reviews, has uploaded a new video review of Earthrise Deluxe Class Ratchet! From the forthcoming Galactic Odyssey Collection (along with Lifeline, a Earthrise Arcee redeco)

Thanks to fellow Seibertron users, Praxiusprime77, blackeyedprime, and Hokutron, for spreading this news.

Ratchet is a redeco of Earthrise Ironhide, who himself is a retool of his Siege toy (which was also redeco'ed as Ratchet for 2019s Walgreens exclusive). Like Ratchet, Earthrise Ironhide is only available as part of an Amazon exclusive.

We have embedded the review below for your convenience:



What do you think of Ratchet? Have you preordered this set? Or are you happy enough with any of the previous versions of the character? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

A lot of complaining for something he didn't and doesn't have to actually spend money on.


Dunno, he might have promised a thousand Vietnamese factory workers his soul or worse. Money or sexual favors are definitely being exchanged somewhere along the line.

Amazon did the same with my Quintesson. I had an email saying I needed to approve a bunch of delays on the next waves into October. I approved all the delays but the Quintesson (waiting to find out more about the Pit of Judgment).

And then the Quintesson ships first anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I think Hasbro forgot that red is one of Ratchet's main colors.

I just find it the height of hypocrisy. I watch them for information on the new figs, but I don't get it twisted that he's getting them illegitimately. If it were me, I would probably be nicer about the stuff if I wasn't just hawking for views, knowing that I'm definitely 'Shelton Benjamining' the process of getting them.

Even if what you were reviewing was bad? Wouldn't that lead to a bad taste if you were mincing your words just because of how you got the toy?

I mean I'm glad to see the review and all as always, but this guy getting these figs so early just makes me hate him. I'm jealous, plain and simple. I want to keep watching but also tell him to get the hell outta here. Oh well.

I'd be fair. I would review it as I would anything else, but that review was just trash. Plus, all the cursing? When did that start?

I get what you mean, but it was over the top (in my opinion).

i don't even mind cursing. It's just that it came out of nowhere. Looking at the comments, it's like he's trying to compete with some other guy who curses.

So where's Lifeline?

They might of potentially been given Ratchet only, otherwise maybe there will be a part 2 but I think if they did have her it would of made more sense to put the two in a video together.

I'm not giving a guy who buys stolen toys any views. We know what the toy looks like already. I don't need to give advertising revenue to this.

Guys, TonTon joined a Discord that im in. I'm biting my tongue to not make a crack about stealing toys. Not sure how much longer I can hold out... :-D

Well, given this clearly has deco changes from the promo pictures initially released (specifically in that the thighs and windshield hinge are now white instead of grey, pushing him more into a Marvel-style Ratchet look)... no, we don't quite know what the toy looks like already. Same for all the other times reviews like this have shown that the final product's deco is different (sometimes substantially so) from the various CG or physical promo pics.

I thought the cursing was funny.

TBH, I'm really disappointed by Ratchet and have been really mulling over whether he's worth getting. I have the old Universe toy. It's not great, but I have him. This guy is more expensive and ... doesn't seem worth it.

On the other hand the robot mode is definitely better. I wish it was as clear cut a case as Starscream replacing the classics mold.

Ugh, 2 weeks ago I saw half of the wave 2 micros, but didn't get since my pre-order is only for both waves. So I waited, and tonight I found the other half only. both halves, different days 2 weeks apart, didn't get either to make sure I actually get both

If you can find him Siege Ratchet actually makes for a great Earth-mode Ratchet, despite his alt-mode officially being a "Cybertronian" one it make for a good Earth truck, more so then Siege Ironhide.

That makes me wonder actually how the Earthrise Ratchet shield/roof would look on the Siege mold.

So, now Earthrise AND Siege have the same mistakes: Ratchet is supposed to have red hands and a red waist. At least Siege gave him some red highlights to break up the color scheme a bit, but this version is just a sea of white with dark gray(??) highlights and a touch of red on the shoulders and shins. The lack of his medical tools that Siege had is also a bummer. Instead of a repaint of Arcee, they should have just put that money into this figure.

Only way he was going to get all of the paint needed would be the Netflix line, usually when inaccurate paintjobs happen it's usually because of something with the figure mold, kinda why initially Earthrise Prime was gonna have grey hands.

Plus with him in a two pack here this was the only way Ratchet was going to be released, if it's an exclusive or part of a two pack then that's almost always the case, so what they "should" do isn't always in line with what they "can" do.
