    Guess you could classify him as classics as well. Took a RID Prime Ratchet and a Spoonman TB head cast, along with modifying his sword to resemble a cannon for his left arm and adding a Comettor cannon to his back (still rotates up/down) with a total repaint and this is what you get. Should note that dealing with these Prime figures heads are a real pain. For those who aren't familiar with these guys yet, most of the heads I've dealt with from the line have what I'd call a reverse balljoint system. They apply the Ball and stem on the head rather than the body (the hole is then put on the body with these figs.). So I ended up having to cut ratchets balljoint off his head and add epoxy to the stem and fitted it snugly in TB's head. Alt mode for the most part is unchanged except for the repaint to black/silver, though I have thought about adding a set of modified G1 reprolabels to him:)  Hope you enjoy, and comments are always welcome folks!

    Great idea! The reprolabels would look good on him, I think.

    That's looking lovely and I'd have no problem putting him on my classics shelf either. Great Job! Looking forward to seeing the alt mode.

    Alt mode. Looks great. Not a classics in my opinion. Looks like it could be in the Animated though. Either case its really sweet. One thing however. Trailbreaker had red on him too didnt he? Like red and silver shins and trim in a dark red? Its all hazy but I think he did.

    That looks badass! Though it could use some red to break up the grey and black.

    Agreed, and you couldn't have gotten rid of the fake parts, man? Other than that pretty cool. :cool:

    I like it. I think you achieved a perfectly blended aesthetic that works well for Classics, Prime, or even Animated.

    I remember you posting the idea in Radicons GD and some people shooting you down. This custom proves that it's possible.

    Holy crap this looks AWESOME! Has/Tak should totally do this too (though I'm sure it won't look as good as this). Can't wait to see the alt. mode.

    Yeah, looks good. I'll second the notion of putting G1 stickers on the side.

    Wow, too many to respond to all, but Thanks so much for the kindness folks!

    Small update on first post, now with red knees and his Autobot logo. Does look more G1 now I suppose.
