    My parents demanding I finally get my stuff out of their spare room has prompted me to finally get round to photographing all my alternator customs.......Here are my attempts at some of Soundwaves little friends...

    RATBAT
    started out as a Shockwave/blast, repainted purple and given some Reprolabels stickers. The head and claws are from a Batman Manbat figure- I had to trim the horns to get it to fit. The wings are from a Xevoz Hemogoblin figure glued to some battle ravage missiles. The missiles fit perfectly onto the pegs on the elbows.

    OVERKILL
    started out as a Camshaft, a few paint apps and Reprolabel stickers again. He head is from a Green power Ranger that transformed into a Minotaur dragon (don't quote me on that). I saw the figure in a shop on thought I had to use it. It took a while to work out a way to get the head to fit...it's attached to the inside of the hood. as stated in my Dinobot thread, i hate the acura gun, so i have him a Xevoz Alpha ranger rifle and then four alt tracks missiles...these clip on to the steering pegs on his shoulders.

    C+C more than welcome and apprecited..........

    Overkill is cool no doubt, but Ratbat is now one of my top 10 favorite customs of all time. No joke. I'm by far no expert, but damn, thats just too cool. I'd like to make some alternators customs, but at my skill level,and the price of alternators, I just cant justify taking the chance of ruining what's already a pretty sweet toy and wasting the small fortune it costs to buy most of the sweet ones. I'm sure glad people like you & Superquad don't feel the same way!

    Very nice. I did a ratbat alternator a while back, but took a more war within take on it, but your bestial take is great too.

    Now these are very cool looking!! I am loving the Ratbat....the hands and wings really help to sell it.

    I like Overkill too, but the "open chest" bugs me a little. I understand why you did it that way, ingenious way to mount the head. Maybe fab up a faux panel to set in there to take up some of that "emptyness"

    None-the-less, very nice work :thumb

    I know exactly what you mean about Overkills chest. I don't know if you can make it out in the admittedly not very good pic, but I added some black plastic detailing to cover the screw holes that were originally there, as well as a big con badge. I also added some clockwork looking stickers to reference the inside of a cassette (for shits and giggles mainly!!)
