Fellow Seibertronian WreckerJack has informed us that Emgo has a video review for Warrior Robots in Disguise Ratchet. You can watch it below. This is a retool of Strongarm so the transformation is not fully new but this still gives you a good idea of the changes to the mold. If you preffer still images, we already have a pictorial review of the figure with comparisons to his mold mate.

He's barely been in the show has he - so is there official design documents for his vehicle mode at all ?

I'd like to know what colour his wheels are supposed to be and if he has something missing like an EMT logo or such.

As he seems to be an Van rather than an EMT van as he has not roof lights that I can see.

I did notice that his colours are a partial mirror of the Prime Original toy - which is a little strange since they might actually be supposed to be the exacts same guy - just in a different art style.


Well i think he is supposed to be the exact same character! coz RID is supposed to be a continuation of Prime, plus we've already seen Soundwave on the show & we're also now seeing Starscream in whose flashback kinda sorta explains the look of him now compared to his look in Prime

Both Ratchets are the exact same character, yes. This isn't one of those really aggravating FoC Grimlock/RiD Grimlock situations...

I dont think RAR did not only mean that Ratchet was the same guy from before but also that he was unchanged. I think we all know he is the same guy. BUT he does have a new body in RID, just like Starscream, BB and Optimus do. A lot of time passed between Prime and RID. The only reason Soundwave doesnt have a new body is because he was trapped in the shadow zone that whole time but it makes sense that everyone, Ratchet included, have had changes to their body and the RID Ratchet toy is a good interpretation of the new colour scheme he sports.

I'm hoping to get some RiD Decepticons this week, and I'm kind of split between two versions of the same mold. I'm thinking of getting either Scorponok or Paralon, but I'm not sure which version of the mold to get. So I was wondering what you guys thought of them. Does anyone have a preference for one over the other? If so, why? Anything to help me narrow this down would be great. Thanks so much, everybody!
The correct answer is both ;)

Actually its a very tough call if you're only going to get one version. I own Paralon, but I plan on getting Scorponok as soon as I spot him again. So I guess it depends on if you want a RID collection or a cool-ass Insecticon collection. It's a fantastic mold for sure and you cannot go wrong with either. So it's between purple or bronze. I much prefer the Scorponok head over Paralon's. I find his just to be weird or lackluster. That sparkly bronze paint job though :x Well enough fence sitting, I recommend Scorponok for pure sexiness and that he is in the show ;)^

That would be pretty cool. That is a fun mode that some people may have missed. Put a little chunky RID retooling and you have a win-win!

I'm excited for the new Ratchet. I'm torn - on one hand I'm happy its not just a PRID re-release, but on the other, it's just a Strongarm retool :HEADHURTS: Either way, it's a cool looking figure and I gots all the wants.

Spoilers but Paralon is also in the show. He doesn't have an accurate headsculpt tho.

:lol: well then both is still the right answer ;) :lol:

I'm not a fan of the Paralon headsculpt, but still a fantastic figure.

I recomend whichever you can find for cheapest. Both are really as good (and both are on the show :) )

He might be one of these rescue SUV type vehicles.

Considering Ratchet mentioned he spent some time being a bounty hunter it would make sense to have a lighter frame. I think that Ratchet would still want to have some role as a medic because of his level of skill and dedication.

My local FD has these cars and they are usually to transport more EMT's or Firefighters without having to use a bigger vehicle. Say you have a fire but only really need one truck, but need more personnel than the truck can safely carry. That's where these come in.

I have also heard of them being used for some minor injuries and wellness checks.

I was thinking more from the point of view of the cartoon makers I guess - I just thought it a little strange that ratchet is VERY similar in vehicle mode to his old self - only with the ambulance parts mostly removed.

So what I was wondering is he still supposed to be an Ambulance or not ?
is he smaller than before - after his "Design tweaks" as that sort of SUV used by paramedics or the fire department in forests is a bit smaller than the ambulance mode. (not much) but a bit.

Yet still so similar - I guess that is just a consequence of him being a Strongarm based design (toywise).

-----

But anyway is there any images of the cartoon model for his vehicle mode available (like the ones that exist of many of the other characters).

I'm also looking for some better images of cartoon Jazz's car mode too.

Ratchet's alt mode was never shown on the show. Also, does it matter?

Yes.

1 I need to know specifically what paint is missing on the toy a picture of the character models vehicle mode would help with that.
2) I would hope he'd show up again before the show ends - but there is so few eps left - maybe he won't unless he's in the finale.

While I think of it any sign on Magnus ?

I just wanted to know if he woke up again or not.

Magnus is alive and well in the RID world. He was featured in the very first comic

Did Jazz ever show up again? I've still only seen season 1.
Ratchet may just be a cameo like Jazz.

Ratchet showed up to be a main player in the two-part mid-season finale then left.
Jazz has never been seen again.
