    Alt mode mock-ups done for now. Did these over Chinese New Year.

    The colour layouts were done with consideration to where the colours would end up being in robot modes.

    Will probably colour a Timelines Scourge version and a Sweeps #2, 6, and 7 version (probably won't do a Noisemaze) before moving on to robot mode.

    I've included reference pics of the Cybertron Sideways toy and of Universe Ratbat (Dark Ages Ratbat) for comparison.

    Please enjoy & suggest any changes you might make.

    And here's a couple of links to other TFP digis I did not too long ago:

    I like the concept, but I'm not sure I can picture Ratbat as being large and physically imposing with Megatron's body.

    I dig Sideways, but I'm not big on Ratbat.

    Could you try Sideways and Ratbat from Soundwave's mold now?

    I kinda picture them working from Soundwave.

    Thanks dudes.

    Sideways is definitely the better fit here. I did Ratbat up just because I have that toy and they used this mold in the comics (can't remember which one). I prefer Ratbat to be a bat, and if depicted in a humanoid robot mode, I'd also think he should be quite scrawny.

    Possibly. Not sure enough to promise. I got something much more involved and important that I think will be ready enough to post soon, in the Radicons section. Many pics and modes to prepare for that one.

    I would like to get one myself. I only have the Ratbat from the two-pack.
    It's a fun one to play with.

    Me too! I'd buy it even if it were fake. ?

    Would probably look nice, but these things take some time to do up. Download photoshop, play around, ask me for pointers and do it up yourself! It is your good idea after all.

    Oh, did anyone notice that I did use Soundwave's head for this? Not sure if it'd fit down through the hold anymore in actuality, but it works for the digi. It looks much much closer to Sideways' head than Megatron's.

    And the orange lines on the front will end up on the robot modes chest, like the translucent parts on the front of the Cybertron molds alt mode and robot chest. If doing a real custom, this part could probably be actually cut out and replaced with translucent orange plastic. The Yellow on the front of Ratbat is also to homage the yellow translucent bits.

    Thanks for the good comments y'all. Hopefully my big crazy project will be ready enough for some WIP pics soon.

    Yeah, I definitely picture Ratbat as being tall, thin, and creepy.
