This figure is a solid meh.

On the plus side,
  • Quite large for a deluxe, in robot mode.
  • It's the most accurate Ratchet figure to date.
  • Nice articulation.

On the downside
  • The accessory is a bit shit.
  • The vehicle mode is tiny. It's shorter than SS Bumblebee and Stinger in their vehicle modes.
  • The colours are kind of boring, though that might be on model for Ratcher I suppose. Could have done with a bit more silver maybe?
  • The transformation is boring. Limbs fold up and panels flip out to form the sides of the ambulance mode, backpack unfurls to form roof and rear and hold everything together.

Last place out of the wave 1 SS deluxes. A meh toy.

If there ever was a TF figure that needs a repaint, it's this Studio Series version of Ratchet.

I am yet to see a Ratchet toy on the shelf that entices me to replace my 2007 Voyager figure.

this figure is going to end up being clearanced and then in 3 or 4 years time it will be worth a fortune on the secondary market for some unexplained reason.
