Takara Masterpiece Ratchet (MP-30) is a white version of MP-27 Ironhide except Ratchet comes with an emergency light on his roof and a few different accessories. The packaging is generic, on the front we have the Nissan logo Ratchet in robot and vehicle mode and the type of van that he is, a Nissan Cherry Vanette. On the back we get a view of the different accessories he is packaged with as well as a height comparison. If you have Mp-27 Ironhide then you will see right away that besides from the paint job and head sculpt they really aren't much different this is probably why Takara decided to produce MP-30 Ratchet so soon after MP-27 Ironhide.

Transforming and Posing
MP-30 Ratchet is sized perfectly to the other Takara Masterpiece figures and he is height accurate based on the original series. Check out the comparison shots provided below!
There really isn't anything negative about MP-30 Ratchet, but there really isn't anything amazing about him either. He is a repaint of MP-27 Ironhide which isn't really Takaras' fault since that's how he was originally designed for the show. They did give him unique tools which is a plus because without them he would not be anything more than an albino Ironhide. He can be posed easily and is scaled to the correct height when compared to the other figures. These are the reasons we are giving MP-30 Ratchet....**DRUM ROLL**.... 4 PUNCHES!
