Its finally confirmed, TakaraTomy will be releasing a Transformers Masterpiece version of the Autobot medic, Rachet, designated as MP-30 and we have the official pics of the figure.
Judging from the images, it seems about right that these are official images, its consistent with the other official images made by TakaraTomy. Ratchet is obviously a slight retool of the upcoming MP Ironhide with Autobot medic tampographed markings on his shoulder and his signature V-fin on his head. MP Ratchet comes with almost same accessories as Ironhide, but he doesn't include a rocket pack, instead he also includes tools to save and repair damaged Autobots in battle. Like many Autobot MPs, Ratchet can also fit perfectly inside MP-10 Optimus Prime's trailer.
Earlier, Nippon Yasan has made a pre-order listing for MP Ratchet and according to their site, the price for the figure is at 7,180 Yen and the estimate release of the figure is around April. (Thanks to TFormers for the news listing).
