Hello all, I have this weird thing when it comes to my movie series Transformers.. It is called SCALE! We are using REAL vehicles so it should not be that hard to measure and make sure they fit together. Now since we FINALLY have a good Jazz and Bumblebee in one scale (Thank you Studio Series!) it was time to take another look at this. I was so hopefull when it was anounced that the Studio Series would be IN SCALE that I ordered them unseen and I was beyond dissapointed when I got my SS ratchet in hands.. he is even smaller than The DOTM Deluxe for crying out loud! How is that " in scale" ? Needless to say I think that he does look like crap with the Studio Series jazz and Bumblebee.. while he is a decent figure. I have seen the Deluxe Lockdown so how can Ratchet be this tiny?? A Hummer H2 that is smaller than a seventies Camaro and about the same size as a Pontiac Solstice?? NO WAY! So with that in mind and in a state of dispair, I went over to a friends house who also collects Movieverse toys and he remembered the Hunt for the Decepticons Ratchet and gave me his junker version to play around with. Scalewise he blew me away. As you can see he scales perfectly with Both the Jazz and Bumblebee in 1:39 scale and as an added bonus, we have The DOTM Voyager Ironhide that has exactly that same scale! So yeah he is perfect.. In Scale only. As most of you know this was not a popular Ratchet, he was not a Search and rescue ambulance as he should have been and he is a kibbly mess! his arms and legs stick out under his body and he has a weird long grille these things NEED TO GO! oh yeah.. and this version of Ratchet is white to make matters more interesting.. Now as a coplete wackjob who is so obsessed with scale, I will atempt to cure the healer. What will be on my to do lost you might ask? - GET HIS ALTMODE SORTED. This means build a "shell" for his ambulance box and get it to fit seamlessly (at first - DEKIBBLE THE SH%# OUT OF HIM This means find another way to store all of his robotparts in a way that this 4x4 actually gets some ground clearance - MAKE IT TRANSFORM. well that is an "easy" one.. he is a transformer.. - MOVIEACCURACY Where possible keep him as acurate as he can be when it comes to both bot and alt mode - REPAINT witch would be a brease cause he does not have like a red stripe, letters and logo's to worry about.. - KEEP MY SANITY (.........) Too late.. So.. any ideas or tips?
