Okay, I managed to snag a Universe Ratchet off eBay a few weeks ago at a price that wasn't ridiculous, and gave him the old custom-treatment.

Before painting:





And after:





















Some of Ratchet's parts were given a base coat of Krylon Fusion Beige, and then on those parts a followup coat of Krylon Fusion White or Tamiya Silver. Final colors used were Testors Dragon White, Testors Turn-Signal Amber, Citadel Mithril Silver, Citadel Boltgun Metal, and a mix of Testors International Orange and Guard's Red which I simply called "Ratchet Red", a color I will also be using on Prime RiD Ratchet later on.

The laser-scalpel and tail-lights got the Tamiya clear-Orange spray-treatment, followed up by Testors clear-Red.

Also, I swapped out the blue lightbar for the red one I took off Classics Prowl when I replaced his with one from Movie Barricade.

Anyway, I think he looks much better. Comments are welcome icon-hotrod.gif

It sure has!

Also, my only complaint with the custom job is that his helmet and crest are still colored wrong. ;D

Was the Hasbro release really that hodge-podge of different colors? I have him, but I don't remember if I actually opened him. Just getting rid of the black was a major improvement.
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
