Transformers Siege Ratchet was revealed officially at SDCC 2019 but only now are we getting the official images that were first shown in the Transformers panel. While he is essentially the same mold as Ironhide, with different sculpted details, the designers went an extra step with Ratchet and showed that he can have a third mode. This third mode is a repair station, to homage his G1 sled. His new weapon becomes a surgical tool and attaches itself onto this repair station where you can place a bot who is in dire need of help. Well either that or he is operating on himself, you choose. The images come from Autobase Aichi.

This figure will be coming to Walgreens in the US in the 2019 holiday season and as for Canada, EB games are currently taking in store preorders. This toy is already out in Hong Kong, exclusively at Toysrus.

Haven't noticed that Ratchet had a different front end from Ironhide before.

As for med bay mode, I would probably just open up the back panels of van mode (the ones that reveal the additional ports) and plug in the weapons onto the arms.

Lots of other parts on Ratchet are different as well.

Among the things discussed...

* Siege has been so popular that Hasbro added a Wave 5 to the line....


Yes but the Generations lines from past years have been popular as well. I thought the issue was that stores weren't ordering later waves because they thought it was the *same product*, thus the need to label change every 12 months instead of 18...??

Nice, looks like I'll be getting my first new leader figure in two years. ;)^ , and the Cybertron City Project Grows.

I finally get my Refraktor from Amazon. Totally stoked, I just need one right, just to get that G1 fix.

I tell my wife all about it and the camera mode and everything. It's when she says stuff like "Sooo, you realize you have to get two more of them now..." that I just want to remarry her all over again.

She's such an adorable enabler. :lol: :oops: :lol:

Okay, so the Micromasters are supposed to lay on Ratchet's crotch for repair operations? Geez, Ratchet. This isn't Kiss Players! It's not THAT kind of healing you're supposed to be doing. :P

I want him, but since he took his sweet time coming, the 3 pack was revealed before I even saw him at retail. So i will be getting that instead.

I had not noticed, yes very clever. Ironhide is already one of my favourites of the year and this guy looks even better.

On my end, I still have my raincheck for 22$CAN deluxes. But the 3pack is "only" 71$.... Guess I'll have to preorder this set as well.

When I told my wife they were finally doing a proper Reflector figure she said to grab all three as soon as I saw a reasonable price, and that they wouldn't count against my implicit 'budget' for Transformers. Then they revealed the 3 pack with all the proper accessories, and her response was essentially, "Well, now you can display them in camera mode and in robot mode."

We may come to a disagreement about which trio should be displayed which way, though. She rightly points out that the asymmetrical colors on the Recon team's combined form looks a little odd, and thinks I should just put their accessories on the retail version and display the Recon team in robot mode.

That said, with laying out the extra bits and kicking the center’s feet out, it adds some character to the camera
