    You kitbashers rock. I love the simplicity, I just had to do it. Using a ko prowl head and swindle hands. Keep up the good work.

    I know it's been done before, but it still looks sweet. I can't spare a prowl head to do this though. I do however have extra swindle hands that I might add to my movie ratchet.

    I freakin love how this looks. I feel like it would be more appropriately named Classics Ratchet since he's off scale from the Alts, just my opinion though. Keep up the great work! :thumb

    Yep.....KYQ did it first:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=148557&highlight=ratchet

    TCracker's version is in there too.....both of them look cool....

    So much that I did one myself also....only difference is that I added Swindle's wheels and tires to mine, and I didn't have an extra Prowl head...so I used a slightly modified Tracks head....

    Everytime I see this, it still looks just as cool as the first time I saw it.....:thumb

    Great job. I laugh at myself every time I see this custom. I actually bought one thinking that was the mold for some reason. *Facepalm*

    Looks great. I really need to pick up a KO Prowl. Not for this, but I have a kitbash that I want to do that I'd rather not ruin the real deal for.

    I don't want to hijack your thread, so if you want me to move these let me know.

    Any way here's my variation and alternate transformation. I think it looks better Transformed like this.
    Good job on yours too. It's a great way to extend the alt collection. I have a few ideas for the ironhide mold as well.

    I just wished it was bigger and in scale with the Alts. I would have used it with my Alts had it been. Anyways, good work guys :thumb

    Awesome man; looks better than the one I made... now to apply some silver-coloured sharpie to my KO Prowl head too, lol...

    BTW - Awesome work too, Tekkaman Blade.

    Nice! I did something very similar to mine, though I went with an Alt Ricochet head with the face painted silver with a paint marker. Not only is Ricochet a lot easier to come by than Prowl, but I find that the head crest is bigger and broader, and as such resembles Ratchet a bit more. Plus, it's already black.

    I also do the alternate transformation with the windshield rotated around front. Those Hound/Swindle hands fit like a dream! I wish I had more of those hands to do my regular Movie Ratchet too... but Alts aren't cheap on Ebay anymore... :(

    Compare the two different versions again... the windshield is supposed to be swiveled around to Ratchet's back, but it's possible to have it facing forward on his chest (or "stomach" I guess).

    This configuration is pretty stable, though as I recall it does slightly limit the distance Ratchet can spread his feet apart (his hips start to hit the arms for the windshield).

    I do like the look of it better. Ratchet has such a short torso, and this gives it a little more form.

    Oh man, the paint markers I use for gold and silver are just TOO cool. I LOVE em. Krylon makes a gold marker (not sure if they make a silver) and Sharpie makes a silver and gold. They're the kind that have the brass ball inside and you have to shake 'em up. Cool stuff!
