Alt Ironhide and Ratchet by Clay

Ironhide and Ratchet took a long time to make. I took the head from Skids and mounted it on the Ram in November, and didn't finish up Ratchet (the Scion that the head came from) until the following July!

For Ironhide, I cut away the plastic in front of the knees to make the proportions look better, and also altered the front bumper pieces so that they can rotate slightly outward. I painted horizontal stripes on either side to further differentiate him from Prime.

Ratchet took longer, though. For the most part it was because the Scion is harder to disassemble, but I also completely repainted it as well. I thought I was being clever by painting the EKG lines on the side until someone pointed out that the movie Ratchet's deco includes them. If I had done Ratchet a year earlier, I perhaps would have been thought of as creative. Ah, well...

The lightbar comes from a Movie Barricade figure. It's not a perfect fit, but I'm quite satisfied with it.
