    Yep, another WiP thread from me. lol Still to cold to paint.

    Rat head & tail are held on temporarily, still trying to decide if I like it.

    C&C always welcome

    Pretty cool looking man. It kinda reminds me of something you might see on a TMNT cartoon....I like the tail and where it is, looks like a big ol' sisi bar that I used to see on old bikes.

    OK that is fucking awesome idea! though i don't care for the maximals, im a pred all the way, its just a great idea.

    animated mixing with beast wars has to be 2 of the best combination's and endless possibilities!

    Rattrap is looking great so far man. I don't think this mold would have been my first choice to use for our rodent friend since the bot mode is so tall and thin looking and i don't really see Rattrap like that but after seeing what you've done so far I'm excited to see how he'll turn out. I like how you spliced the heads together, that is going to look awesome painted up. Great idea to put TM Rattrap's beast head on the front of the bike and his back wheels/hind legs as the back wheels too. You should totally keep the rat head and tail like that. Keep up the good work NP.

    I started a BW animated Rattrap a few months ago, I am surprised we are using different base molds. I think I'll go paint mine up :) 

    I wish mine had that tail though :(  the RT I got was missing the beast head and the tail :( 

    your mod to the Oilslick head is awesome , btw.

    Hey NP

    The work and ideas you have here look pretty good. However, I'll be honest and say that I don't like the vehicle mode or head much. This is just a personal opinion though and so far I'm in the minority so it's no biggie :D 

    I was wondering, do you plan on having the bot mode look like the rattrap [or rattletrap] we saw in the show? The head looks very different.

    Either way, you do good work man. Keep it up! :)

    Thanks guys. I surprised that only one person (on Cybertron.ca) picked up on the vibe I was going for.
    It's all good man, not everyone is going to dig what I come up with.
    I respect your opinion though.

    I'll probably do what I've done with all the other BW:Ani figures.
    Do a hybrid between normal & TM for the paint jobs

    personally I see this as BM rattrap more then BW because of the color and to tell you the truth I love it as a BM rattrap its better then the original one!

    Nice NP you've done it again! It's looking really good! I really like how you're able to "see" the crossover and make it happen, so sweet.

    I know, it's way too cold up here, I'm putting off painting till spring.At least I only shoveled the driveway three times so far! :D

    Wow. I've been seeing a lot of "never would've thought of that" stuff lately. This is definitely a great idea. Can't wait to see him all painted up. :)

    Thanks, I've always been able to get a mental picture.
    Sometimes it works out. Sometimes, not so much. :lol 
    Yeah, the cold is a really pain. It's stopping me from doing even the most simple of painting. :banghead: 

    Yeah, there has been alot of great customs lately, that have been outside the box.
    It's great too see.

    I think you're getting ready to hit several home runs when you get your WiPs finished! :wink: 

    As far as the tail goes, I'd suggest integrating it in just a little more with the bike, much like 2007 Arcee or some other bike figures where the missile is the tailpipe.

    You may find that this design is latching on to you though. Anyways, I just thought I'd offer up that suggestion if you're still mulling over the design of the tail.

    Keep up the great work, bud :thumb
