    I'm trying to do the same thing with my collection. Currently need to switch out my MP Soundwave and Seekers for something smaller and put them on a different shelf. I'm waiting for Earthrise for the Seekers but want to find a copy of Siege Soundwave with the Shockwave's lab add-on kit. Anyone have a reliable US seller for the Shockwave's lab kit for Soundwave?

    Soundblaster has the (almost comically) bigger chest window to allow for multiple cassettes. It's not subtle at all.

    If that's the one I'm thinking of, I think it's not bad looking but it's too small.

    Finally got Ratchet and, as usual, painted the sheiß out of him. He's really friggin good, even without my preferred color scheme. I never realized how wrong my Autobots looked without Ratchet until I got him.

    His accessories are great too. Depending on configuration he's got: a wrench, a laser scalpel, a laser pistol, a laser turret, a magnetic hoist, and medical scanner. Not too shabby.

    Lots of cool detail too, a lot of wiring and such. The medical tools sculpted to his left forearm are a neat touch too.

    Its also surprising how many new parts he has compared to Ironhide. Around 50% new tooling on similarly shaped parts.

    No vehicle mode pics, still waiting for the paint to completely dry, but it's just as good as Ironhides.

    I also screwed up my fingernail whilst pulling the tires off to paint them, lifted it off my finger a bit.
    Meaning the first TF to injure me bad enough to require a bandage... was the doctor.

    P.S. I can't decide whether or not to paint his thighs red. Any thoughts?

    I'm glad Ratchet is starting to show up - I hope The cassettes do us the same courtesy too.

    The DNA design kits and yeah it is a tad small now that you mention it. I have to get the measurements on the shapeways one now.

    Edit: looks like even the 3D print I have saved is too small for magnus. 3.6 inches tall.

    I have discovered that the Matrix Workshop filler kit for Ironhide doesn't exactly work for Ratchet. The inside of the thigh pieces fit correctly aaand that's about it. I am currently sanding the back filler and will get it to fit well enough. The forearms will require a more involved fix or we just wait for a revised kit for Ratchet. I guess. They were cheap kits and ruining them isn't much concern. I'm just actually surprised there are molding differences in multiple parts of the body. The biggest bummer was the forearm pieces. Ah well.

    I have given Sideswipe Ultra Magnus's side arms, and his main blaster to Ironhide. In turn, Ironhide has guven Magnus his Hammer/Launcher.

    It just feels right. Thoughts?
