    I was going to give both of these guys their own threads, but since I took so many pics of them together, I figured that it made more sense to just do one. They are both made from knock off MP Primes and A-Team movie vans. The headlights are made from the guts of Dollar Store book lights, and Ratchet's spinners are from flashing "safety lights".
    I've been working on this commission for months and month and months for a very patient and generous client (Thanks Kelvin!) and I'm finally done.
    I'm not done looking though and editing all of the pics that I took today, but here is the first batch. I've got lots more on the way including a step by step transformation.
    If you look closely, you'll notice that Ratchet's blaster pistols store in his legs.
    Ironhide's heavy blaster stores in his roof, which can be used as a shield.

    Thanks much! These two have been in the works for so long that it's going to be weird not having them around any more. Of course I still have to pack them up and mail them.

    Thanks everyone! I'm that you dig these guys. Here's a step-by-step of their transformation. They can be transformed with their roofs attached, but removing them makes some steps easier

    Man, These look f#ck'n great! :thumb  That A-Team van makes a sweet-ass altmode for these guys & all your work that's gone into them definitely shows. Don't know 'bout you but if it was me who had to ship them to the other side of the world, It'd be like losing a member of the family or something... :lol
