    Inspired by Nick Roche and Josh Burcham's work in Last Stand of the Wreckers, Ironfist was created using DOTM deluxe Ratchet and 3D prints (head, mid-section, and fists) that I created and destrongerlupus helped me test. I also did a minor mod to the ratchet figure to help widen his chest and show more of his arms. Paints involved a black primer with Model Master's "Fabric Tan" spray and brush on Model Master's "Cobalt Blue" enamel and Floquil Railroad Colors "Up Light Orange".
    Here's a link to the WIP thread
    You can make your own using a DOTM Ratchet and parts form here http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/commi...-wheeljacks-custom-body-shop.html#post8130022

    More pics available here and here

    Thanks for all the comments and feedback during the wip stage guys.

    Wow, this came out great. That Ratchet really is perfect for him, and the mechtech gun actually fits really well as well. Totally buying the kit soon!

    EDIT: BTW, is that a custom Guzzle?

    I just looked at the parts on shape way, awesome stuff.

    and it got me wondering, is there any chance you can offer the gut piece by itself. for those of us who just want to enhance out ratchet figures, or are making smolder figures.

    Heck maybe the hand pieces also solo, just in case any one else wants them for their own conversion?

    Thanks for all comments folks. :) 

    thanks. yeah here's guzzle's thread http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/419843-guzzle-complete-based-jangothakings.html

    :lol 
    Thanks

    Once, things get rolling, I'll put those other parts up separately. Due to shapeways charging extra for each file, it's cheaper to pic them up as kit rather than individually. but yeah, I'll separate them in case folks just want the hands or something. Thanks. :)

    If didn't know any different I would say it was made by hasbro and custom painted.

    You did a fantastic job with the details and it's amazing how well this works as a classics figure despite it being movie ratchet
