    Here it is, my Kreo TFP Ratchet, one of my favorite creations to date, basically modern Masterpiece Size, same as Rodimus. This one presented some.. unique challenges with the wheel placements in robot mode. As well as the fact that Kreo has made nothing resembling the correct chest doors yet. Don't even want to say what it took to make this parts wise*. but it was all worth it. Working on trying to trim down the shoulder armor, it kinda got away from me. Might also find a way to paint the proper accents on the helmet, although not 100% sure what paint to use on that plastic type. Will post a pic with updates when I work it out.
    Apologies for the less then optimal pic quality, my open Kreo box lightbox did not work as well as I had hoped.

    For what you had to work with, that is Incredable. Better than anything I can do.

    Thanks :thumb 


    Nope, that is one Ratchet and most of 2 Sideswipes. All the joints are ball joints, and good stuff like that. My biggest problem with KREO sets is they are all so.. skeletal, I prefer some actual bulk on my robots :lol 

    I was let down by the deluxe Prime Ratchet so I decided it was time to make my own, one I was going to be totally happy with. I am not 100% happy with this one just yet, so the work will go on. the whole lower leg assembly needs some work, the wheel ankle if the animation model is a killer trying to work with blocks and keep things anything resembling smooth but it is mostly there.
