    Ive always wanted to see the Beast Wars characters done in a classics style, so I figured Id give it a shot myself. I started with Rattrap because I found Hubcap at Walmart, and thought he would make a good base for him. I like the head, its kinda what Rattrap would look like if he hadnt had a beast mode. I tried to stay to the colors of a rat, to keep it similar. I added the rust because Rattrap isnt exactly the cleanest bot. Let me know what you think!

    Maybe a head swap with an actual Rattrap head or something would bring this together better. If you hadn't said it was Rattrap, I honestly never would have guessed.
    Decent beat up old car though.

    Actually, I think a license-plate with his name would work for me...
    Love the beater details too.

    I really like the subtly of the rust applications. I do think a head with some buck teeth would communicate "RATTRAP" a bit more, though. Still, this is a really cool project :thumb

    rattletrap needs a tiny bumper sticker saying "You wanna become uglier than chopperface? come closer" :p 

    but a "Rattletrap Extermination Co." placard on the doors could be better. :p

    I've actually thought about doing this for some time myself, just haven't found a good enough head for it. the altmode seems pretty appropriate for the character.

    Figured he'd be called Ratrod just to make the name fit the alt mode better.

    Might have to start working on him again, now that I know others are thinking the same thing.

    I too think the name "Ratrod" would be a suitable name for the figure!

    The Animated counterpart was named "Rattletrap," which I like a lot. This is a pretty solid idea in search of the right head.

    Cool Rattrap, Rattrap. I hope to see more Rattrap's Rattraps as time goes on Rattrap, as you (Rattrap) make really good Rattraps.

    This concept is brilliant. Love it. The head could use a swap if possible, but man imo this is nail on the head perfect.

    Anyone got any ideas for a head? I have a basic Rattrap at home, but I dont really want to decapitate him. How bout the KO one, are those still avaliable? Oh, and I really like the Ratrod idea.... Im now thinking Rattimus Prime! :lol

    See if you can get a Ransack/Ransack GTS and if the head will fit on that body. It totally works.
