    Well, we are almost there, here is Protectobot 4 of the 5.
    First Aid.

    I opted to use the "repair bay" as a surf board/attack craft, to give these guys a more rounded "bad-ass" look and feel. They were always a little on the girly side for my taste...especially for a gestalt team.

    I like the "surf board" hover platform ! And yes you have "butched" them up a bit, so great job! I still think you should be able to use the surf board as a field repair bay!:bowdown:

    Real nice work on this one F_R!
    Paintjob as always, Excellent:) 
    But a question? Why didnt you give him his faceplate n Visor?
    The surf board/attack bay look pretty slick!
    i have to agree with big hank, with the right stuff you could make it into a real repair bay with tools and everything, Still You did an awsome job!:thumbs2:

    Heh... the Protectobots were "girly"? :) 

    This looks GREAT... I love the paint job.

    On the technical side, you always do an excellent job. As far as capturing the character though, somehow I feel that the traditional faceplate would have gone a long way to "feeling" more like First Aid (especially since the head shape is about right otherwise). It's a great custom, but doesn't match the character to me (particularly with the big guns... which clashes with First Aid more than anyone). If anything, it feels more like a Ratchet variant.

    Still.. *applause*

    Nice. This is my favorite one. It could use some big blue goggles, or a face plate, but I love the detail work. The repair bay is sweet. Hopefully you'll find time to post some more pics of it?

    Amazing as usual. I remember these guys being bitch-esque... and you captured it perfectly. That little platform is ill.

    This is awesome. Ratchet wasn't even on my mind at all when I saw this. Considering this toy's design is heavily based on G1 Ratchet, you've really pulled this off very well!

    Thanks guys. In retrospect, I'm sure I could have picked a better mold doing some more hunting around...

    However - I do think his size is perfect vs. prowl's mold on the LEFT leg.

    I was hoping for a faceplate here, but great job nonetheless.

    it;s nice and all but using cybertron redalert would make a lot more sense because they seem to fit better but your work is amazing....i can't wait for the final product.

    Isn't Red Alert smaller than Prowl?
