    Greetings everyone.

    I bring for your viewing entertainment the latest commission I have done with Autobot Ratchet. He is, first and foremost, completely - as in 100% - transformable, and in many ways different to my previously modified custom Ratchet. A few of the differences: 1) the addition of his saw blade 2) properly positioned fenders in front of his shoulders 3) new approach for moving the front wheels away from his shoulders 4) more shape given to the lower legs 5) new way to attach his gun for various positions.

    There also some minor differences but all in all this is one piece I am very proud of and pleased to know it is going to a great home for a true Transformers fan! I am limited in time so at this point I will leave this thread as a view/comment/critique and hopefully I can return to answer any questions on any "how to do xyz" stuff.

    Thank you in advance for viewing this work!

    EDIT: how come there is no photo upload feature for me to upload the photos?

    OK... here are the photos:

    Will do. I usually have to upload my photos on to the thread in order to make a thread, but that option is missing so I am loading them up on flickr for the time being. I'll link them over here once they are done uploading.

    Nice work, especially the fact the wheels on his shoulders tuck away now.

    Once again - you honor us with your presence...
    Perfect work - this is the closest to movie accuracy that I've ever seen ANY Ratchet figure.

    In fact, you have single-handedly made me no longer think this mold is worthless with your mods!

    Badass! Wow, he looks really accurate, more than the mould I thought was capable.

    Why oh why didn't he get a new Voyager during ROTF where they all looked this way?

    I'll be looking forward to this! Your Bumblebee thread is what got me further into customizing...

    It looks like you used twist ties to connect the parts in front of the wheels to the hood. I tried using them on a project recently but opted against it, but it looks like you had great results!

    And that front wheel mod is genius! You just attached them to the part that flips back?
