    So I finally got myself a Universe Ratchet. Nice figure but those black thighs and forearms plus that red crest and firearm just don't look right for me. Oh, and those mismatching blue windows as well. So, I painted the black sections of his limbs white to make him match his Henkei version better. I also painted his firearm silver in an attempt to make it closer to the chromed version of the Henkei. I also added a light dark blue coat to his windows.

    For his helmet, I tried something different. I've never really been a fan of the white helmet look Ratchet had in the cartoon. Therefore, I painted it red (and his crest white) to match his portrayal in the Marvel Comics. I like it! :D

    i would paint the the panel behind his head white, so the head doesn't blend in with the part. Very nice job, so far.

    I think its cool what you did. When I get mine own Ratchet I'll make him look close to the cartoon, but hey thats just me. So good work making this one your own.

    the white paint looks good, but I think you need to touch-up those windows, they're all swirly.

    I agree with Redline, (no offense) those windows need some more help. I can't wait to get a Ratchet of my own too.

    ...uh, where exactly did you find a Ratchet??? I still haven't seen Inferno yet.

    I agree w/ the window comment, but over all great job.

    I suppose he does require a bit more painting. I'll get on to it if I have more time.

    Ebay.
