(Profile translated from the collectors card)
Much like the Encore reissue of Ironhide, this is the first time the G1 version of Ratchet was domestically available in Japan at mainstream retail (discounting the original Diaclone, exclusives or mail order figures). Unlike Ironhide however Ratchet was available in 1985 as a mail away figure and had his own unique styled box with the box art depicting the cartoon version.
Both Ironhide and Ratchet do not appear to be the most desirable of the original figures so if you want to pick up a reissue of the figure rather than the original, I'd recommend the e-Hobby versions which does not go for as much money like many of the others.
