    I bet there is a KO Ratbat stand alone you will be able to buy. I hate KO, but I'm willing in this case. I paid full price for sound blaster, but buying another in black just to get Ratbat.

    Do we think the Takara Ratbat works with AcousticWave/AcousticBlaster? KOs of that have been around forever for cheap.

    Damn! I’ve been planning to sell my KO Ratbat for mega $$$ to fund SoundBlaster.

    I don't "hate" KOs, though I do have my own rules for what I will or won't buy, but MP Ratbat was definitely one I was always getting the KO for. Just glad the KO company didn't make me buy Soundblaster to get it.

    I’m in the same boat where I usually don’t care for KO’s. Hell, to get the original MP Ratbat, I did exactly what you said you don’t want to do: I bought an official MP Soundblaster, took out Ratbat, and sold SB on eBay without Ratbat.

    So the Ratbat I do have, is an official one and not a KO. However, I’m not going the route this time. I am just going to stick with the official older MP Ratbat and Buzzsaw. I don’t care about the other ones.

    I remember looking for an official Ratbat alone back before the KO released and he was always listed for nearly the same price as buying a complete Soundblaster w/Ratbat.

    I have the KO Ratbat and it’s ok but I’m sure it’ll look worse when FT drops a fully painted one

    I would like to get FT Ratbat because baaat, even though I don't like most of the FT tapes so far. Sadly, I'll probably have to go without.

    Hello TFW members,

    We will be making chest replacement pieces for this figure just like RP-01, however doing a search online seems like there are a few options.

    What should we be looking to make? Blue, Red, Purple? The old toy had a red chest.

    This is what we currently offer for RP-01 after far as cartoon style and toy style.

    Personally I’d want a purple toon option, it looks to me like the toon had purple and toy had red

    I’d probably just do what I did for FT Soundwave… cut out a piece of card to slot in the window. Looks great and cost me quite literally nothing.

    I started out with a piece of backer board. Then bought an insert. Rocked it for ahwile but was never really happy with it. Ended up with the backer board. Probably just use it for soundblaster too.

    Did the same with mine. A simple and great looking solution for just displaying him.

    Hopefully the Soundblaster cassettes will drop soon. I've already sold KFC Slugfest and Overkill and can't wait to swap out Buzzsaw and TFC Autoscout too.

    Awesome!

    I absolutely adore TT Megatron but the day an FT Megs is revealed will be a good day.
