Thanks to 胡服騎射 on YouTube we have our first in-hand images of the new Transformers Studio Series Core Ratchet.
This figure was recently found at retail in Taiwan and we finally have a clear look a this great representation of G1 Ratchet for the small Core class size. The figure comes with a mini-background of an Autobot ship command bridge and we can see Ratchet is a bit smaller that Studio Series Core Bumblebee Movie Shockwave. Ratchet features a great range of poseability for his size and a very clever and interesting transformation for a solid van mode. Ratchet comes with two small guns that can be attached to the sides of his alt mode. We are sure many fans will be pleased with this little figure.
See all the images after the break, as well as a video review (in Mandarin) and then let us know your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
