The Ark Addendum - Ratbat's Transform

OK, this week I finish up my cassette transformations.  I give you... Ratbat!  It's a simple transformation.  He basically unfolds, much like the toy.  The big difference is that his weapons pop out of his back, instead of being attached manually.

And one final reminder: we've got a book signing for The AllSpark Almanac Addendum this Saturday at Emerald Knights Comics & Games in Burbank.  1:00 PM on December 10th.

4116 W. Burbank Blvd
Burbank, CA 91505

Hope to see a bunch of you there.  A ton of folks from Transformers Prime will be there, as well as Mike Costa and Livio Ramondelli.  Plus, of course, Bill Forster, Marty Isenberg, and myself.  Join us, it'll be a blast.

"Attacked"? :P

Ironic that it goes into so much detail for the expansion of the thrusters/guns/radar dishes (did they ever seem to have a particular function in any continuity? Ever fire lasers?) but hardly any for the rest of his anatomy.

"Workin' at the car wash, yeah..."

"but hardly any for the rest of his anatomy."
Perhaps some other model sheets deal with that?

I'm guessing it's detailed so that animators would know from where those parts come from as it's not quite clear on 1 - 2- 3 sketches.

Oh your talking about the arrows indicating the foldouts? Yeah pretty abstract when you look at it like that. Really great model-sheet.
