I bought Encore Ratchet aka the Cybertron Party Bus at BBTS. Delighted with Ratchet, despite the mold wear, and much prefer it to the Universe one (which I Ebayed a while back). So I decided to add a head. Yeah, I know, like everyone, but I wanted to keep the windshield-mask, which I like, and have a more normal head behind it, like we saw a time or two in Marvel G1.

I made a head out of a cheapo oversized-minicon-KO Sparkplug, which oddly had Bluestreak's head. It was easy to carve off the mohawkiness, leaving Ratchet nice and cresty. The head is screwed to a plate that sits in the seat, and can be removed when I want to experience the full stickerface effect. I like the head pretty well; the shoulders are a bit low, but not too bad.

I also added 3mm rails masquerading as cab steps, a 3mm clip to his cannon (Lego rod, KO Lego hand), and some graphics, including a little handpainted something for Andrusi. icon-hotrod.gif

You're talking to ▲ndrusi. Assume everything that he posts is snark.
