    Well.. Not wanting to have my warcry have the combiner stuff as soon as I got him I sanded off the front nubs and such to just give him a hummer front end.. This left me with a problem as I found out the pegs are not solid and I ended up having a hole in the front grill..


    Crap.. Just ruined a $50 toy... Or did I....


    So I started scouring the stores looking for a bush guard I could use. Finally DOTM dropped.. and wouldn't you know it ratchet's bush guard was the perfect size (with some trimming).

    So today I got to work trimmed it up, painted everything (black grill looks nice and helps hide the lack of details on the hummer grill due to the hole). Fit the bush guard on.. and boom.. Fixed and upgraded my warcry!

    Botmode with bush guard knees looks pretty good too If I do say so myself!

    Wow, that's a great modification, and that brushguard really does work well! (makes me worry that a DELUXE Ratchet was so small that his grill fit like that though - I knew the toys were smaller this year but YIPE)
    This just makes me want Warcry all the more! Great work^^

    It would make you feel worse that VOYAGER megatron's alt mode leaves him closest to being in scale with scouts..

    yup indeed I saw one deluxe and one voyager ... this makes me a sad panda...

    well i'll save some cash and get them when they are offered loose for sh*tnothing

    anyways... this custom rocks... I would've suggested you heated up a knife and made a cleaner cut, but the bushgaurd in botmode is pure win!!!!!

    Yeah I thought about it too late. I'll probably go back with a file and clean up some of the edges a little bit.
    Definitely need to do that, I was just so excited with the result I had to post. :)
