    Titans Return Ratbat with Senator
    Update Aug 5th, 2017

    This seem to me such an obvious idea that I'm surprised I was the first (that I
    know of) to do it. A Ratbat faceplate for Mindwipe!
    This gives me both a humanoid Senator Ratbat and a bat Ratbat all in
    one figure, plus having the additional play value of him being a Headmaster and all.
    Design is inspired by his rendition in the IDW comics.

    Mindwipe was chosen not only for his alt mode, but for the obvious reason that he
    has almost the same colour scheme. All I had to do is toss in some gold and match
    the purple in some places and Senator Ratbat is good to go. I'm quite reluctant to
    spend too much time on painting nowadays so this sort of project is perfect.

    Lots of gold is used, because Ratbat is a real royal.

    Bat mode is mostly the same, unsurprisingly. I debated painting the soft rubbery
    parts and decided against it in the end.

    Senator is created using Vorath's body with a Crashbash head for better look.
    The faceplate is modelled by me and printed in Shapeways in Black High Definition
    Acrylate. I'm starting to really like this material and I highly recommend giving
    it a check out!

    Thanks for viewing and I hope you guys like it! Catch you guys around!

    This turned out fantastic!

    I make stuff on Shapeways too and wanted to ask what you liked about this material so much? I have a project that I will be printing a number of pieces for and I am considering different material options.

    I always wanted that Senator Ratbat figure. This one looks awesome with those colors popping so much. Great job!

    Is that mostly the stock purple that came on it?
