    I was asked if my custom ratchet head would fit PRID ratchet, so finally I got a hold of the figure (almost impossible to find here in calgary,canada)...and decided to give it a world.
    Some modification/trimming is required but nothing to complicated
    here's some pics, hope you guys like it!
    C&C are always welcome :)

    The thing that's great about a lot of the Prime figures is that they're not too stylised unlike Animated, which means the 'classics' style heads work so well on them - this one included! Looks great :)

    The head looks great, but a modified chest and possibly shoulders would go a long way to makign it look less out of place on that body.

    Like what?

    But if you actually did that, then you would also have to do something with the sholder pads and those pointy knee-caps.

    A part of me wants to get a few of these and do Ratchet, Ironhide and maybe Brawn. Maybe Trailbreaker.
