Ratchet looks amazing.  They remolded his roof to give him the light bank as well as his face, but he is otherwise identical to Ironhide.  He has some of the same accessories as Ironhide, along with a few new ones.  Really the only thing there is to complain about with this toy is that he has stickers for the logos.  His Autobot logs are superimposed on top of the cross.  He does come with stickers without the Autobot logo, but the cross is not recognizable.  I’m not sure if that is because the cross isn’t used in Japan or because of trademark issues with the cross.  I think it’s the latter, but they would have been better off just giving him standard ambulance markings.  That really is a minor complaint though.  This is an awesome toy and a must for any G1 fan.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.

    I was tempted to do that, but I would consider that customization, and I don’t do that. I would have preferred they just leave the cross out entirely.

    I don’t know what others are doing, but I nipped the edges of the other stickers. They look like proper crosses after the corners are cut.
