    I was in a hobby shop buying paint and came across a testors vinyl pinstriping kit of three rolls black, red and yellow of various width strips. I knew they would be perfect for ratchet. And the distance they were apart on the roll was perfect for his wrist cuffs. I also repainted his front hood so I could put my preferred symbol there. His head turned out really nice as well.
    He went from being a so so ko to a prize in my collection.

    Cool to see a few comic Ratchets being made with this guy!

    Mine might need a little work - the paint isn't perfect. In fact I got this one red stripe up by his shoulder, you can see it in the pic below.

    I think it's bleed over from the red stripe on the feet. Weird. There isn't one by his right shoulder.
    No big whoop, I'm gonna do some stripes anyway - I can take one off. Or maybe match it on the other side i dunno.

    As promised. I'm no Sixo; forgive the carpet. Photography not my strong suit.

    In this light, it seems like I need another coat of white. I'd have sprayed the beastly red bits but Each. And. Every. Screw in his back stripped when I tried to disassemble him. I also experimented with a new masking technique for the stripes and that's why we see so much bleed. I'm tempted to take another crack at this. It was fun.

    Looking good!

    Oh and when I get a sideways pic from your iPhone... (you can tell when you first upload it) I delete it and go back into my photos. I rotate the pic once and save. Then I rotate it back to the correct way and save again. Then I upload and it comes out fine. Weird but it works.

    Mine arrived today. Seems pretty much the same as the Ironhide to me.

    I removed the crooked logo and replaced it with a clear back ocean rub one.

    Same as all my other KO's, for the price, I'm happy.

    I've heard good things about Sara Zhang. Or you could reach out to Rubadubspawn on these message boards and he can hook you up. I got mine from him pretty quickly.

    Age of consent in Taiwan is 14. She/he is probably legal. :p 

    She also ships to Peru.

    Still dont have my Ratchet. And the Amazon seller wont do ANYTHING about it and is now blaiming the USPS even tho is still says "prepairing shipment". I argues that he guarenteed it be there by a certain day and that other people are receiving them so mayne he did something wrong in the beginning. So im trying to get a refund from Amazon, still waiting for their response

    I'll second, this Rubs guy got the figure to me faster than I've ever gotten a figure from China. It came before I even thought about requesting a tracking number.
    The figure itself..... eh not so good but that's not the distributors fault. Looks good on the shelf though so for $35 I'm happy.

    Yeah, that's probably a Wei Jiang OS. I have the KO that just came out and it has the same stickers for the shoulders as the original. That one looks great, even in unpainted prototype form!

    Those little changes definitely improve a lot ...
    If it's OS, I sure hope they do an MP-size downscale afterwards.

    I try to love my official MP Ratchet, I really do!
    But compared to this version, he seems more awkward than ever.

    I might get this one if the price is right.
