    Due to popular demand I've decided to place my own personal custom Ratchet figure online. This is the the figure I made for myself. After recently watching TF: Prime in HD (I was watching it on youtube before) I noticed details i had missed and therefore spruced this one up a bit. The majority of the silver has been replaced with chrome detailing like the wheels and the lights. The tires have been painted to look more like rubber as well. Also of note is I finally added the proper shoulder detail.
    Enjoy!!!

    Thanks!
    I tweaked a LOT of stuff on him like the entire front end of the vehicle, his shoulder bits, the proper colored lights on his thighs. A whole bunch of other things too. Like trying to make the windows look thin and not like giant chunks of plastic on his chest.

    I just got comfortable realizing I would never own the first 1 and then you do this to me?

    Why couldn't Hasbro give us this toy with this paint job? Even without all the details, just the distribution of red would be an improvement.

    That was intentional actually. The whole thing is too busy as it is.

    Looks great. Although you did miss a couple spots, don't take it as a harsh or negative criticism as it's not meant to be. His bottom bumper valance/air splitter is red/orange and that divot in his lower leg too. No one ever paints that in. The foot stripe IMHO is black from watching it on the episode Stronger,Faster when he's holding the miner down getting ready to burn his face, in broad daylight it's black. It's so reflective it's hard to judge in any other light. It'll sell regardless of the stripe color or anything else I mentioned. No one has put one out that looked this good, just friendly suggestions for your own personal or another to sell. :)

    Heh, thanks. Again, I'm just now watching it in HD so I've got a lot of new details coming at me.

    Stronger,Faster is the only one he transforms in I can think of and there it's not long. Details are hard to get when you don't have much source material to go on. He needs to transform more IMO because I know I'm still missing some things.

    You can tell you've put a lot of little details in from the first version. I see something else every time I look at it.

    He's in vehicle mode in the beginning of the very first episode so there's that too.
