yeah, they made alot of poor design decisions with voyager ratchet... which didn't stop them from re-releasing him in 5 different color schemes. Chief among them are hands with articulated thumbs that have no room to move in the first place and can't hold anything because they're stuck in a maniacal clutching motion, and an "Axe" in his right forearm that doesn't look like an axe at all unless you're reeeeeeeeeeeeeally good at pretending.

yeah... have voyagers gotten smaller since this mold, or is ratchet just particularly beefy for a voyager? I was just looking in walmart for the new FoC deluxes and I realized just how big ratchet seems to be compared to say, DoTM voyager Soundwave or Prime OP

costs I guess. On one hand, I suppose it keeps them affordable, on the other hand, if they shrink much more there won't be much difference between deluxe and voyager and they might as well throw another class in before leader.

okay, so here are my current thoughts/plans for my upgrade of night ops ratchet:

- Modify the axe to accommodate mechtech weapons. Will mainly probably only fit blades, small guns and the "Tesla" EMP cannon but will not be a ridiculous piece of crap weapon anymore.

-Focused EMP gun "Tesla" for night infiltration.

-New, mechtech compatible hands. I'll probably have to model and shapeways these myself since I lack a 3d printer, so these are still only a "Possibly", but if I can get em made Ratchet will be able to equip a total of 5 mechtech weapons in robot mode (one in new axe slot, one in his current arm shield/claw port, one on his back and two in his hands)

- Better paint job for night ops, i.e. not sam fisher goggles green accents.

Just got WFC Optimus in the mail today and realized something right away: His hands are A)Huge and B)the perfect size for Voyager Ratchet. If I can cast a mold of them and modify the wrist base to fit on the ridiculous wristpost ratchet's hands use currently, they would be perfect.
