Blog #411: Toy Review: Japanese Transformers Generations Deluxe Ratbat

Japanese Transformers Generations Deluxe Ratbat


I haven’t picked up any of the previous Japanese Generations toys since, to my knowledge, there are no mold changes from the USA versions.  Ratbat however, is repainted from the Generations deluxe Scourge mold with a new head.


Vehicle Mode: Aside from the obvious problem with this toy, that he’s not a bay, it looks great.  The gold, black, and purple color scheme is perfect for Ratbat.  The only problem is that the remolded head looks like a head on the back of the vehicle.  This wasn’t a problem with Scourge, since he had the weapon on his head which sat between the engines in vehicle mode.  Without that, you just see the head.


Robot Mode: The color scheme looks even better in robot mode.  It’s a really great looking toy.  The head mold is nice, but nothing particularly special.

Thanks for reading!
