Ratchet, the Autobot Medic
After weeks of work, David has finally built a new transformer! Witness David's take on the best Autobot Medic, Ratchet!
About this creation
Name: Ratchet
Race: Cybertronian
Title(s): Doctor, Medic, Brother in arms
Moc Status: Assembled

Back Story: A great fighter and medic in the War for Cybertron, Ratchet is a cheerful Autobot who always looks at the Energon Cube half full. But with the return of the Decepticon’s under their new leader, Shockwave, Ratchet fears a full scale reignition of the old war. Thus prompted, Ratchet has decided to lend his services to Optimus Prime once more, even at the prospect of leaving Cybertron for another planet: Earth.

Okey dokey guys! Let's start off with Ratchet's choice of vehicle mode: A towtruck! note: Rather than a traditional ambulance or emergency rescue vehicle, Ratchet scanned a tow truck because he is a doctor to machines, and because it allows him to tow wounded warriors to safety.

Ratchet: I may be a medic, but I need a weapon too!
Me: Well we have just the thing for you!

See this tow hook?

It's now a GUN!! :D

Ratchet: Huzzah! Time to kick Decepticon can! :D

Ratchet: And not only that! The bottom of my shoulders hold 4 smaller laser blasters(orange studs)!

Ratchet: And my gun fits well into my backpack when I'm not using it!

Cool walking pose...

Comparison with Minifigure and fellow Autobot Landmine.

Ratchet: What is this? Why, it's Mini Movie Ironhide!

Ironhide: Hey! What's that?
Ben: Looks like one of Ratchet's creations! Let's make it BETTER!!!
Ironhide: Uh, I'm not sure that's a good idea...

Ironhide: Look what you've done! You broke it!
Ben: No I didn't!
Ratchet: HEY!!

Ratchet: You guys! I NEEDED THAT!!

Final comparison with Bionicle figure, Callan. Minifig scale Transformers are smaller than you think!

Ratchet: Farewell, human friends!
Ironhide: Later guys!

The transformation really is brilliant! Love how it works! Very little wrong with it, but I do agree with everyone else about the tiles, also maybe a bit of stuff on the lower part of the truck, like some chrome grills could look nice? But other then that, awesome work :D

I'm not usually into the whole transformers thing but i really liked how well you pulled it off. i also think that the hook part of ratchet after he transforms into robot mode. I think that piece could almost pass for a minicon in vehicle form. other than that i really liked it.

Wow, transformers always amaze me. And at such a small scale, too!
  January 8, 2012
y'know it actually makes more sense to have him as a pick-up truck than an ambulance since hes medic for transformers

Quoting Brickunion758 (Pick) Very nice, maybe if u added more white it would look a tad bit new like ratchet. This seems more like a custom character. Yet, David did awesome!!
Thanks, and yeah, he is a custom transformer for our own story. Glad you like him!

Pretty neat 'Former! More should definitely be constructed :)

The only reason you built Ratchet is because he's awesome, AM I RIGHT? But I like Ironhide personally.
