    As much as I like the design for the movie Ratchet. All the talk and pics had me pining for the halcyon days of TFs that looked like boxes.
    So, I broke down and stripped my old Alt Ironhide bash of his paint (I have a new incarnation planned!), and started working on the character that I have wanted to do since Alt Skids came out. He turned out rather well. I utilized a lightbar from Prowl, as well as his heavily modified noggin. Alt mode pics will come as soon as his clear coat dries and cures properly. Still have some touch ups to do (like evening out his shoulder "crosses", and putting some emblems and fonts on his ambulance mode.) Comments and crits always welcome!

    The paint job is a little sloppy here and there, but overall it's quite nice.

    Good job!

    Any pics of the vehicle mode?

    Very cool, but I don't really see how he's "un-movied". It's more like he's "re-G1'd".

    I thought this was going to be a kitbash thread where somebody took the movie toy and altered it.

    Pretty much exactly what I was planning to do, when I was doing it. Just never did it. But that's what it would've looked like. Basically.

    I love it. With all the fanstroking of Movie Ratchet lately, its nice to see some appreciation for how he should have looked.

    As for the kitbash, the white paint seems to have gone on very smoothly and evenly but the red striping came out a touch uneven, particularly on the shoulders. Great work on the head crest though.

    Hey, bro. No need to get like that. He was suggesting something.

    Great custom, love the headsculpt, but I have to agree, a bit of sloppy paint apps here and there.

    I'm still jealous of it though!

    P.S. It's biznatches. With an n.
    P.P.S. Can I have some biznatches and a fotey?

    You can have my biznatches dude. I have to many *gives onesock biznatches*. And yeah, there's no reason to be mean. He was just offering constructive criticism.

    And yet again, fan-made custom paints are 100 times better than the actual Skidz paint. I'd totally buy that!

    Wow, way to over-react.

    Anyway, nice work on the head.

    While I don't like the idea as Ratchet as a Scion Xb, it looks cool enough.

    well, he was asking for comments and critics, I gave some. it's what we do, and makes us better. the crazy thing is that sculpt-bot is someone on here that I admire as one of the two best bashers I've ever seen.

    <carefully steps around strange overreaction on first page>

    Great kitbash, dude! The new head looks mighty nice on him. The Red Cross signs also really make me think of the old TV show, too. Me likee!

    a. a. amazing re-paint.

    I think the scion is the perfect incarnation for him...

    just my two cents.

    Look. Besides the obvious fact that flaming and baiting are strictly forbidden, if someone does it to you does NOT give you the right to react in kind. Got it? Good. I'm not saying you did, I'm merely pointing out the obvious so that in the future, people will do like they ought and bite their tongue, use the "report post" function found on ALL forum posts, and let myself and other staff members do our jobs, k? :)
