    I'm finally getting around to uploading pics of my latest customs.

    First up: Ratchet!

    So much detail on him. Took forever to do the black areas. I just wish they had a decent Voyager class mold of him.

    This got no love? Sad. I like it. It's subtle, but really nice looking.

    Yeah, sometimes good work don't get replies....

    Nice work on Ratchet, looks clean, and has a lot of detail brought out by the paint.

    You know, I'd really like to see someone turn this mold into Soundwave. The placement of the tires on the shoulders could almost double as exposed "speakers".

    It's not earth-shatteringly great but it's a lot of fun. It also has the flat-out best mechtech weapon to date (and I don't even like the damn things).

    I agree its a lot of fun - my only gripe with the mold is that his hip tires can't slide in (a la Crankcase's rear tires) to be flush with his legs, rather than on the outside of them...


    Agree that the face needs some love though...

    Great work. I need to get on the stick and detail my own Ratchet.

    Agreed this should have been a Voyager, or at the very least one of the larger deluxes, even if it meant no MT weapon. I do love the saw though.

    Awesome! I was waiting to see if someone would paint him up to see what he'd look like. Only reason I didn't was because I decided not to buy him (too small). I knew he'd look pretty spiffy painted all proper. :)
