|Function: Autobot Medic
Racing across the dunes of the northern Sahara desert, the roar of his engine echoing off the ever-shifting dunes, AUTOBOT RATCHET charges towards the inevitable confrontation with MEGATRON and his assembled DECEPTICON army. Though he has battled against odds this bad in the past, no fight before has meant so much. He knows the fate of the universe rests on the outcome of this conflict, and he will do everything in his power to see to it that his allies come through it safe and victorious.

Costco Exclusive "Surface to Air Showdown" package bio:
Though battle is not his primary function, AUTOBOT RATCHET has been in enough scraps to be able to handle most single opponents by himself. Still, when he’s up against a tactical genius like GRINDOR, even his powerful cannons may not be enough. The DECEPTICON has the advantage of flight, and is known for planning every moment of a battle before the first shot is fired. If AUTOBOT RATCHET wants to survive, he’ll need to do something unexpected and hope it catches GRINDOR off guard.
