    In case you guys missed it there is an all new photoshoot and RB in his Armored mode on Page 3!

    In the words of Dr Steve "CHECK IT OUT!"


    Been working on this bad boy for a few weeks little bit at a time. Got the body done and wanted to get an updated yet classic looking head for him. RB is one of my bros favorite TF and wanted to sculpt me the head that I have been looking for.

    I let the head project in his hands and he did not disappoint. The head was make using a rubber block to start then was given a robotic skeleton that was then built upon by aves apoxy sculpt. Thats right this guy has a robotic skeleton under the actual head!

    The base body was a KO oversized Movie Ratchet. He was given poseable hands and a completely new paint job. I created him a weapons set out of various fodder I had in my bins. He has been given a shoulder rocket (that fires) shoulder chain gun and an energon axe made from a figure stand. I needed to give him a BFG to seal the deal and then modified a SIGMA 6 Rocket pack, gun to finish him off.

    Oh HELL Yeah! :D  That is one bad-ass Bayverse Roadbuster! :thumb  The only thing is that his altmode looks a little bare - I mean, it needs some giant gun attached to it... :lol

    This is one helluva custom, Shinobitron! It's very unique and inspiring and it actually makes me want to get this mold, simply for something like this.

    Whoa! Did you boost his knee joints to make him taller???

    I'm really impressed you got such a long, lean figure out of this mold... his proportions really do make me think of the ol' Mugen Calibur! :)

    I don't know about the legs, but it looks like the torso's transformed a bit differently to lengthen it.

    I really do like the proportions too; enough that I might consider reworking the hood-chest configuration my attempt at the idea's got going for it. Also liking the color layout, some nice inspiration for when I'm finally ready for paint.

    I do also wonder, though, if any of the weapons can stay on for the alt mode.

    Oh yee of little faith in me! Weapons do stay on with an additional weapon for alt mode that can also be used in bot mode. The big gun however just looks ridiculous in SUV mode as the gun is double the size of the SUV. Pics of the bonus item will be up later tonight hopefully.

    Good call on lengthening the midsection. I did that in photoshop for ratchet and it really fixed his dwarf body.

    Simply an amazing piece of work. I still can't believe it came from a movie mold. It looks completely different in so many ways.
