    I have a few of these that I did from the BW/BM era. I'm only posting because "alexcollier" posted and inquired about a different body for his BM Rattrap.

    As far as this WIP is concerned I blended Rattrap with Cheetors body. And little widdling here and there, some mild fabricating and heeeere's Rattrap.

    Unfortunately I got stumped on how I was going to put wheels on him. So he has been sitting on the shelf since just after Beast Machines. I have ideas how I could execute his wheeled mode. I just haven't done anything yet.

    Anyway, here he is.

    I 'm liking it. Nice use of the Cheetor mold. In some ways I like your take more than mine:cool: 

    Getting Perfect tTransformation from this design is a badda-b!#ch, isn't it?

    It looks like the tail is removed for transformation on yours. Is that right?

    The proportions of mine look a lot less "Weasely" after bulking up the hind section with the robot mode "hip-ears" but it still needs that wasp-waist for robot mode.

    I was even toying with the idea of a main of hair that could be brushed back in robot mode but messed up in rat-mode.

    The differences between alt mode and robot mode definately make for a challenge. But thats kinda part of the fun.

    BTW, yes the tail does remove. And as far as the hair idea goes, that would be totally cool if it could be pulled off.
