I think this is where I post this? I didn't want to intrude on anyone else's thread, and I'm not sure where else this would go. Anyway... Let me start of by saying that the instruction-built Kre-o Ratchet is...well, terrible. It's bland, it's drab, it's a mess, it's just overall bad. So I wanted to redo it in a way that wouldn't make me regret buying it. I plan on doing this with several Kre-o's, but I wanted to do Ratchet first since he is comparatively simple. My goal was to re-do him in a way that both improved his overall appearance, while also adding a sense that, yeah, maybe he actually could transform that way. (eg hood/roof pieces become the arms, side/bottom pieces and tires become the legs) I didn't base him off any particular Ratchet because I don't think they did either, and there is no way I could pull something out of nothing. It's weird, all the current Kre-o sets seem to be based off a strange fusion of movie and classics universes. I should also mention it's a bit of a pet peeve of mine when the instructions don't use all the given pieces. I always find a way to use every last piece. (I apologize for the Batman backdrop, it was the quickest way to hide my disaster of a room.) From the front: As you can see, he's a fair bit different than the default. I pretty much re-engineered his legs and arms. The only thing I left the same was his general body shape. I tried to keep pieces where I feel they would have been, had he actually been given the ability to transform. I put most of the roof pieces into his arms and shoulders, and moved all the wheels down to his legs. I also pushed his chest in a peg, and moved some of the grills/lights around. Overall his legs are a bit shorter, and his arms are bulkier, leading to a slightly stockier appearance. I had to improvise with the symmetry juuust a little but, due to the set having an asymmetrical amount of certain pieces. His right bicep is slightly hollow. The back: Not much change here. Not much to change, really. /shrug Good view of the tires. Side view: His shoulder pads sort of impede his movement, but they are entirely movable in the event I want to raise his arms. Here's the original, for comparison: And actually, even this picture is better than the model you get following the default instructions. Maybe its a prototype or something.
