World’s Biggest Transformers: Ratchet
A life size G1 Ratchet custom has gotten some attention on Facebook lately, so we decided to take a closer look.
The owner of this impressive piece is Jason Ybarra of Star Car Central. It’s a 1987 Toyota Van LE 4WD fully decorated like Ratchet, including a working light bar. While it’s not quite the Nissan Vanette of the original toy, admittedly I could not tell the difference at first glance.
Adorning the top of the van is a scaled up recreation of the original Ravage toy. His master isn’t far away; a G1 Soundwave toy can be seen inside the van, just behind the windshield.
