    Hi: I was playing around with styrene yesterday and, wondering how would the toy look with more than just the heads i created to be more toon accurate, i came up creating a "boot" for ratchet, then I created the other one and could not stop there so i created two shoulder mounts to give an overall better appereance, I think it comes even closer to what the toy should have been without altering the structure of the original toy, the kit is kind of an armor that attaches to the toy, something like ultramagnus armor. Please tell me what you think, the kit still needs refinement , please give me your feedback.


    thanks.

    I think it looks really good! Wish my Ratchet looked like that.

    You've made it just about as good as it gets. The toy is absolutely awful. Of all of the stretches from toy to animation model, I've always thought that the Ratchet/Ironhide mold was the biggest. That looks really great, and is probably the best you can hope for with that dreadful mold.

    Awesome work as usual! Looks like I'll have to buy some more of your stuff on eBay, lol...

    BTW - put some red crosses on those shoulders.

    Great work! Can the pieces at least be stored in the van mode? I never owned Ratchet or Ironhide so I have no idea what kind of space is left in the van
