Transformers: Studio Series Core Class Wave 3 (Ratchet and Wheelie)


I don’t really understand why we need a Core Class Ratchet. We are getting a 1986 Movie Voyager Class Ironhide, so we will also be getting a Voyager Class Ratchet, but whatever. Ratchet is pretty awesome for his size. He needed a few more paint apps in vehicle mode, but he’s great other than that.


When I first saw pics of Wheelie, I didn’t like his vehicle mode at all. Now that I have him in hand, he’s growing on me. His robot mode is great, it’s just that big cockpit I don’t like. He should be more streamlined, though that may be my preference for the toy versus the animation.

Overall: Ratchet is an easy skip since we will get a Voyager Class one, but he’s not a bad toy. Wheelie is a must have.

Thanks for reading!
