    That's some creative usage of everyday things. I also really like the color of Ratchet. It's a lot nicer then his typical green yellow.

    Beautiful work here, your addons really makes him stand out in a crowd.
    The only thing is I'd use reprolabels instead of painted(?) decor/writing, but your way ofcourse makes him more unique. :thumbs2:

    The scratch-built weapons and modding to the head and lights all look awesome!

    I think the paintjob is very cleanly done overall except for the stripes and letters on the side of the truck. Like Houndvoice, I'd recommend using reprolabels instead.

    I like it a lot, the color is a HUGE improvement over the stock version. The hand lettered decals are well done but actual decals would be a lot better. Could you tell me the brand and name of the paint you used?

    Great work. Using the metal backing from those cold pills as diamond plate is an ingenius idea. Hella clever!

    I love a lot of things about this custom. The diamond plate on the roof, the creative saw blade, the robot mode is awesome. However, this really brings it down for me. There are sets of repo-labels available for this guy. While I can appreciate your effort, the lettering, striping and other details just don't look good. My best advice would be to get the label set, or at least use some tape to your lines straight. Sorry to rip on you, but no one else was saying it.

    This is my same sentiment as well; Hotwire just beat me to the punch. I really think what HW is honing in on is the difference between "better" and "best" here. Those decals (the lettering especially) just hold it back some. I think if you fix that problem, you'll have a definite winner :thumb
