Slinter-matic Battle Ratbot!
...and the BRAIN!


The Ratbot exists because I've always found Beast Machines Rattrap a gangly, oversized mess of a
figure, but I just couldn't bring myself to throw it away.  The tragedy of BM Rattrap was that
despite being an ugly as sin figure of a bad design from a terrible show that ruined all the
characters I loved in Beast Wars, there were lots of good parts to the figure and it was made
of good materials.  I fully disassembled BM RT and reconfigured the parts.  I used a torso from a Mattel dinosaur
figure as the new main body, making it a smaller figure in scale with TMNT.  Then parts, parts, parts!  A little at a time
over the course of almost a year.  Using Brain as the driver wasn't my initial concept--you'll note the driver is swappable via magnets with the
spring/gear assembly that lives on the tail.  Paint is metallic laquer, I wanted colors to complement classic Metalhead.
