    Kept seeing this little white labrat running around in Beast Wars, often caught in the predacon base.
    That's all the story there is to this. Repainted a Kenner Rattrap into a Labrat beastmode, repainted the robot mode in the colour scheme of G1 Ratchet, and gave it a Kreo Halo gun I repainted to match up.

    Totally works. I could see RatChet here as a Predacon medic who was unfortunate enough to have scanned a mouse as his Beast Mode.

    Glad I'm not the only one who played on the name for a Beast Wars OC. Mine isn't meant to be the actual G1 Ratchet though. Anyway, this turned out really nice, good job! Hope he's not the one Tarantulas ate

    Pretty nice!

    I saw this and was amused to be reminded of a never-completed project I had that would have turned TF:Animated Activator Ratchet into Rattrap. Fun to see the reverse happen here. :D

    Awesome idea for a custom. I actually really like the idea of Ratchet being a lab rat.

    I like it, especially named "Labrat". He could be a volunteer soldier, always willing to try new experimental technology, and it always seems to go wrong!

    You could also base your bio on him from the mice in " The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy".

    I've always wanted to try my own BW Rattrap repaint, but this looks so good, it should of been an exclusive repaint! Then distributed to the General public when BW was still on shelves...!

    There was a far more purile name than "Rat Chet" that you could have used and I'm glad you didn't :D

    I am afraid your intention has been lost on me. An elaboration would be most helpful.

    Hah yeah, first thing I thought when I saw the name was Ratshit, which I actually like more because it is even more of a word-play on Ratchet's name. Humorous too, but not exactly family friendly.

    I like how this is one of the rare cases where you can give an animal red eyes and it's actually 100% accurate.

    Egad! That is BRILLIANT!
    I’m surprised I’ve never seen someone do this before.
    The final look is really nice. Good job :)
