    Here's my take on a modern era Rattrap. I used movie Hubcap and Cybertron Ransack for the head. Added the silver, bronze and maximal red eyes. Car mode has not changed so no pics of that.

    The head I used reminds me of BM Rattrap so that's why I put it one there. I was going for a less beast face but still recognizable as RT

    Nice idea! I think that works really well. If you want to take it even further, you could rough him up a bit and make him into an appropriately-named Rat Rod. :)

    The more I look at the more I think his alt mode NEEDS to be grey with miss-matched door panels and loads of rust, likes he's been rusting in a back lot or something, reds just too "sporty" for old 'Trap!

    Oh dear, you would make aunt Arcee proud of ya'! =P

    Great idea there! And that head suits very well with both the character and the mold.
    My only complain is the same as Primus_feather's, I would paint the altmode with a brownish grey tone, just so the resemblance to RT remains even in the alt-mode.

    I think either grey like he was originally or brown with pink like the transmetal version.

    Great concept, might have to try this myself at some point.

    Great Idea, plus Hubcap is a great lil transformer as well!

    Agreed. Rattrap is an ol' rustbucket.

    Clever idea. I would have painted the car to give him a more overall accurate color scheme. Still, very good.

    Why not Stock base body grey, with faded pink doors, covered in loads of Brown rust. The RatTrap Trifecta!
