    i always hated the classics ratchet body and when i saw the tfp prime ratchet body i knew i had to customize it. i mixed it with the henkie ratchet and tfp prime ratchet. so enjoy. the ion cannon is stored via magnets, so is the radio style antenna. i did make a kind of twisted metal attack car mode look lol. i wanted him to have his own feel with the blending of g1/classics/tfp. he fits very well with my classics collections.

    Interesting. The head looks too big, but I guess that can't be helped unless you make one from scratch.

    Not a bad concept, the red looks a little rough, though. Still, I like it.

    I like it, hmmmm....maybe the TFP bodies are stylized to accept any heads.

    oh my man, can't believe you cannibalized a Henkei Ratchet for this build. Can't say I'd approve, but if it's what you like, that's all that matters in the end. I prefer to keep the 2 ratchets seperate:)

    Looks good I was thinking about doing something along similar lines (no ratchet to cannibalize due to him never getting released here.)

    It's a shame the head looks slightly too big but other than that I'd say the concept works.

    The head looks perfect on there, he has a big head, which is a nice change compared to how many other figures have tiny heads. If anything he's more humanoid now, heads should be bigger than the fists

    I agree. The fig looks properly proportioned IMO.
    Nice job on him.

    Excellent job. Love the use of the Tallgeese cannon.
