Let me tell you what the easiest thing is about my quest to make Custom Masters of the entire first wave Autobots: the fact that there were a few recolors included in the mix! If you have Prowl, then you have Smokescreen too. And where there's an Ironhide, there's also a Ratchet! And here he is:

As with Ironhide, I started with Mainframe's chest and shaved down the front completely so there was nothing left but the shoulders, the side, and the crotch. I then took a little Micro Machines van and cut off the front of it. From there, I grafted the van front onto what was left of Mainframe and filled in the gaps.

Also noteworthy is the new Ratchet head. I started with an Energon Rodmius head and sanded off the helmet crest, leaving the horns on the front. I’d been looking for a good alternative to my original “Tupperware head” for a long time; check it out here, for old times’ sake:

No cheap jokes, please

Thanks to improvements in the Custom Masters process, I can now offer Ratchet to just about anyone who wants one. Feel free to email me for more details!

I used the following colors on Ratchet:
  • Skull White (Games Workshop)
  • Astronomican Grey (Games Workshop)
  • Blood Red (Games Workshop)
  • Ice Blue (Games Workshop)
  • Macharius Solar Orange (Games Workshop)
  • Adeptus Battlegrey (Games Workshop)
