If you want what will likely be the perfect version of Studio Series Ratchet then the Premium Finish line (lines?) has you covered. And if you want an even dirtier version of Siege Starscream for some reason then they've got you covered there, too.

PF SS-04 Ratchet right off tones down the day glow green of the original release and gives us a much more accurate yellow-green. And the new paint work on the head pulls out all the right details in his face that the blob of gray paint from the original figure never could. The rest of the new paint details throughout his body make this almost look like a new mold. The rescue truck mode isn't so bad itself adding extra touches of silver to the top and wheels and sharpening up the tampographs on the sides. This will be a must have for many Studio Series collectors.

PF WFC-04 Starscream is, as expected, not much different from the original Siege figure, just with a lot more grit and wear. The figures don't share any of the same "damage", but the new version has a lot more of it, especially in the Tetra Jet mode, which was already quite a bit. only real obvious pallet change is the red used appears to be a little paler and his face is now gray instead of silver. Outside of that there's a little extra red on his lover wing tip and his "belt" now goes around his sides instead of just the front. For most this will be an easy pass.

Both figures are due out in January 2022 and will be available outside of Japan through Hasbro Pulse and many of the site sponsors you see on this very page.

That Ratchet is LEAGUES above the original. I'll consider him. :-?

As for Starscream, look like he was on the wrong end of a bukkake fest. #-o

Premium Ratchet is a HUGE improvement in alt mode. A few touch-ups I’d have to add, but not bad. I’d like to pick it up, these are available on Pulse, right?

That Ratchet may be the first Premium figure I buy. Bumblebee is a second option and maybe Siege Optimus in spite me not liking the show. I'll preorder Ratchet and hope Bumblebee pops up as well

with all the sculpted details on the siege molds, all that starscream would have needed would have been a simple wash to make those details pop. kind of a wasted opportunity. but that ratchet.... oh I might need him.

Starscream still looks like dogsh*t. It seems that Bakara hasn't learnt from fan-feedback that cr@pple-damage is NOT wanted for re-releases (by either those who already bought the original, or those who wanted a clean version).

Unfortunately there are only two more figures from each premium line (For SS it’s rumored to be SS-32 Prime and Jetfire) from what we know so far. Maybe there will be more waves in the future, but that’s all we know about for now.

I’m impressed with Ratchet, so I’d really like to see them tackle figures like ROTF Starscream that I missed out on at retail.

Ratchet looks a LOT better. Shame the figure still has the backpack, but even so, that's a huge improvement. Starscream though, eh. I'm quite happy with the Siege version.

Cool, thank you!

I'd definitely be happy with Premium Finish Jetfire! Whilst not too happy with the character in the movie, I do enjoy the alt-mode (SR-71s are just cool)

How accurate is that list you're talking about? I've seen some say SS-06 is Shockwave, but also said SS-02 could be a Camaro Bee while also saying WFC 04 would be Soundwave. All seems like guessing to me, those super dark and grainy teasers were barely decipherable. If SS Jetfire is coming I'll be curious what kind of wizardry they put on him because that was already a great looking figure.

If they ever make a WFC Soundwave, I wonder if it would be the Siege version or the Netflix version? Will it come with both Ravage and Lazerbeak? Will the paint job be a bukkake of grime like for Starscream? :-?

Siege for sure, most likely no tapes, but it'd be the NetFlix tapes if he did, and yes.

The Takara Premium Finish figures are out, some for a little while and others just a few days ago. So, we have video reviews for four of them now. Seibertron Japan correspondent MattinJapan gave us his review for Megatron which just came out (yay more of that Siege mold!) which gave us the idea to do this roundup. These reviews give us a good idea at the deco, which is what this line is all about. We also have reviews from Ultrazilla, PvP and Gavinstoycupboard. Enjoy them and let us know if you'll get any of these. If you do want them, they are all available at various online importers, like bigbadtoystore.

The film versions look ok, but there are (oversized) KOs that have come out with better paint jobs, so these official versions are really TLTL. I'm not sure if BB has been released with better paint, but the overall "extra" paint still doesn't seem detailed enough to warrant an extra purchase if I've got the original.

The WFC figures look even worse than before and I'll be sticking with the slightly oversized, but vastly superior KO versions (which, ironically, have less paint apps than the originals, thanks to the lack of cr@pple-damage paint apps).

TT really are out of touch with their roots here. They used to release gorgeous metallic, matte-painted, chromed, glossy or want other type of "premium" finish, but all of these just like either "meh" or awful.

I agree so much here.

For me a PREMIUM paint job for an official WFC toy is not one with a worse bukkake than the original.id pay extra for chrome metallics but not this.

Hasbro uses the same dot matrix stuff on Studio Series toys to convey rust, nobody complained (aside from me).

On Sparkless bot, it works. But that megs is just wrong. The dots seems way bigger and it's only ONE color. Plus, there's the fact that Netflix Megs exist. Twice. With way better paint.

Went ahead and placed my order for Premium Finish Ratchet! Considering the original is more expensive on the aftermarket and the deco is actually really nice (adds a lot of details to alt mode that I couldn't paint myself, like the text and Autobot logo on the back), I finally decided to go for it.

There's definitely more details that I'll be adding, but I'm excited to get it!

Selfishly, I wanted this to be the DotM version, since that is the only retail SS figure I don't own, and premium would still be far cheaper than the aftermarket

The Premium Finish line is not done yet. On February 10th, Takara will be revealing a new Optimus Prime, along with other toys that Hasbro already revealed like Kingdom Blaster and such. This Optimus Prime is a Premium Finish version of the SS05 mold (or of a different release based on that mold), with the long nose truck he had in the first 3 Bay films. These teaser images come from Takara's Twitter page.

Also in Premium Finish news, we have shots showing PF Starscream next to the original Siege release. You'll let us know what you think and if it's different enough to add to your collection as maybe an additional seeker. Or even simply use this as your main Starscream. Those images come from @Ishikawa_sunday on Twitter.

So PF wasn't cancelled after all, interesting. Maybe it's just the movie stuff that's continuing since they previously did these reveals in pairs? It's going to have to look really good for an SS05 repaint to replace my SS32. Let's see if the eBay prices crash when this is released.

So, lowering the contrast of pale characters like Starscream and Ultra Magnus is "premium."

EEEEEEEEEEeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhh...................

I'm curious about that Optimus Prime though. If it's the "ROTF" mold and he's awesome looking, I may buy it. It may be ironically cheaper than the normal release at after-market prices.

The battle damage on Starscream is a completely different pattern, one shared by no other use of the Siege Seeker mold (seriously, every single use of that mold has the exact same battle damage pattern).

I agree, that would be awesome!

I’m sure the final figure will be the SS-32 mold, but at least in the promo they’re using SS-05, which can’t combine and is a lot less accurate. They show him holding the Ion Blaster though, which was SS-32’s accessory (SS-05 had the Energon blades), so I think the actual figure itself will be the newer mold.

I’m so glad the premium finish line is still kicking specifically for this figure. I’m really excited to see what they do with it!

Easy pass on both. PF Siege Starscream just looks greyer, not 'better'. And as I'm no fan of the Bayverse movies or stylings, saying that there will be a PF Bayverse figure is, to my mind, like saying they'll be selling premium sewage....

I know right? It just doesn’t make sense - SS-32 looks so much better in bot mode and combines with Jetfire, who is supposed to be the next PF release! I actually would’ve picked it up if it was the SS-32, but as is. . . I’m so disappointed they used the older mold.

Doesn't look much different from the normal SS-05 with ToyHax decals
Wish they re-release SS32 or SS44
