    I saw the Activators TFA Ratchet in the store today, and I'm actually impressed... he looks like a pretty good little figure.

    Maybe it was the small size, but it also occurred to me that he could make a pretty sweet GEARS, so I did up a quick and sloppy digibash.

    Some blue paint, some enlarged tires, and I think it works pretty well. What do you think?

    Nah, he was just pretending.

    Not a bad idea there. Although before I clicked the link and realised it was Ratchet, I actually thought it was the towtruck flipchanger fig (Hoist, Towline, Wrecker Hook etc)...

    Wow! Now that you mention it, this Activator has a LOT in common with that old Machine Wars tow truck design... and they're both auto-changers too! Good catch.

    Whether Gears was a genuine curmudgeon, or just playing along, the grouchy look on this Ratchet figure really does make for a good Gears... even the overall shape, with those red divisions on it.

    Hey yeah... duh! You're right. Looks like Brawn too.

    I guess Gears and Brawn were both the stocky, tough, gruff truck guys.

    Someone already made a Brawn from Soundwave and it looks really good. I think this mold fits Gears pretty well

    The Soundwave-to-Brawn bash is perfect because that mold really looks like a short powerhouse type.

    I like this mold as Gears, but I have to confess that it works better on the Activator version than I think it would on the full-size TFA Ratchet.
