    I ended up getting 2 Movie Ratchets, one the best buy exclusive and the other was the ROTF version.
    i swapped the black and gray parts from both and then detailed up ratchet.
    with the other 1 i had, i decided to make him into a Trailbreaker.

    the head and hands are from alternators swindle. and the triple barrel missile is from a zoid, the other is from the first version of movie bumblebee and a part from energon primes gun. then his hand gun is from a power ranger gun.

    Trailbreaker is one of my favorite characters, so I love this piece! Great work on the paintjob. It fits him perfectly.

    How did I miss this !? You really nailed that Trailbreaker style. Great job. Smart move, swapping the parts too.

    I see the differences between our versions now (As a reply to your comment in -my- topic) I'd say your use of the Swindle-head works just as well as my use for Windcharger's. The only thing I'm missing is an Autobot-symbol of some sort.

    This is one of the only molds I like from the movie lines. I always thought it made a great Trail-Breaker. You should be proud man because this turned out great! Really nice.

    I'm inspired to try this myself.

    No matter how many times I see this combo (movie Ratchet plus Swindle head and hands, seen it at least 7 times in the last 2 years, which also includes using a Prowl head to make Ratchet from this mold too) it gets me wanting to do one. I made my own TB from a deluxe Ironhide but the size of this is pretty awesome. Great work. Really love the Zoids part you used for the triple barrel 'force-field' projector
