We have our winners! After long, thoroughly entertaining hours of pouring over the skin designs you submitted in April, Insomniac’s Ratchet & Clank experts have chosen their favorite skin designs for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. And let me tell you, it wasn’t easy…

There were a ton of truly amazing designs submitted! However, in the end, Insomniac’s panel of judges felt that these entries best exemplified the wacky, fan-inspired quality they were looking for, while still fitting into the game world as in-game DLC items. So, without further ado, here are your winners:

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One: Heck Fire RatchetRatchet & Clank: All 4 One: Fish Bowl Clank

1st Prize: Alejandro David Gonzalez, Texas and David Thompson, Washington

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One: Sheriff RatchetRatchet & Clank: All 4 One: Chimera Clank (Resistance)

2nd Prize: Rodrigues Elisa, California and Jaime Esparza, Oklahoma

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One: Adventurer RatchetRatchet & Clank: All 4 One: Tiki Tok Clank

3rd Prize: Amber Harris, California and Christopher Martinez, California

For those of you who are curious about which Captain Qwark and Dr. Nefarious designs took home the gold in Europe’s contest, here are the winning Qwark and Nefarious designs:

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One: Qwark CostumeRatchet & Clank: All 4 One: Lava Lamp Dr. Nefarious

Congratulations to all of our winners and thank you to everyone who participated. We always love to see the incredible creativity that our fans possess.

In addition to having their skin designs featured in the game, our first prize winners scored a trip for two to Comic-Con International 2011 in San Diego, California.

For all those of you who didn’t win – don’t worry, we have a surprise for you, too! On top of offering the winning Ratchet, Clank, Qwark, and Nefarious skins as free DLC to all our fans, Insomniac will be including these and some of their other favorite designs as an unlockable in-game gallery in Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One.

Wow actually decent winners this time. I’m still outraged from the God of War II costume winners.

Will this be free DLC for everyone, or will it be paid? If paid, will the winners get a cut?

    The DLC is going to be free for everyone. We wanted to make sure everyone gets to enjoy your fellow fans’ creations!

aww, I really liked the Tiki Clank! Would have loved to see that come in-game!
anywho: Congrats to all the winners! Very nice work!

Congrats to the winners! I hope some of the guys from Insomniac come and post some of their other favorite skins and talk about them. Sort of like what they did with the My Blaster Runs Hot weapon design contest. Though the in-gallery sounds cool, I don’t think a lot of people would see it compared to a PS Blog post…

    If you want to check out some of the other favorite designs Insomniac selected, head over to We’ve got an honorable mentions submissions gallery posted there, where you can see some of the other designs that will be included in the in-game gallery.

Wow that was really cool! I love the Clank Resistance inspired skin. You can bet that I’ll be downloading that one as soon as its available :D

Maybe the Adventurer Ratchet should have a half-tuck…

    Very tough, there were so many creative skins submitted. If we could, everyone on the Ratchet & Clank team would have loved to put all of them in the game.

Looks like Europe has outdone us! Crusader Qwark looks hilarious, and making Nefarious’ head into a lava lamp is downright genius.

Congrats to everyone though, really good sketches.

Wow, that Doctor Nefarious is inspired! That is truly awesome

How about the winners of the God of War Monster Design Contest?

June 17th, 1:17 pm

Wow i never thought the R&C (ratchet and clank) series would make it so far! I even still play those old ps2 R&C games

Maxpower1096 said:

June 17th, 1:19 pm

lol i actually dont like the first place winners the 2nd and 3rd are better…..just my opinion

Maxpower1096 said:

June 17th, 1:21 pm

man i wish i knew of this contest, I would have made a Sly Cooper skin, I dont know if Insomniac would be allowed to use it though

all the clanks are sick, and first place ratchet is pretty worthy, it is damn unique.

DaMist said:

June 17th, 1:57 pm

man…i don’t see mine anywhere :(

Buckis2002 said:

June 17th, 2:08 pm

the first place ratchet looks awsome and same for second place clank

Hooligantuan said:

June 17th, 2:27 pm

If there are more Qwarks and Nefariouses, I’d love to see them!

The Lava Lamp Nefrarious is brilliant and hilarious, and the Knight Qwark looks … like what it is!

still a load of crap that Sony had a contest open to most of the European customers but excluded anyone except US users on this side. It might take extra work to make it all legal in Canada but it can be done. To just not bother and exclude Canadians is not the best PR move, especially in light of the recent PSN problems… Oh that reminds me… any word on when Canada is going to get free credit protection?

Awesome entries!! KUDOS to all!!

Rocket-lombax said:

Don’t get me wrong, the winning Ratchet design is pretty creative in it’s own right, but I was hoping whatever design that won would preserve Ratchet’s essential Ratchet-ness. It’ll still be interesting to see the fully rendered product regardless.

I don’t suppose you guys are doing an “honorable mentions” section? I’d love to see others that could’ve been!

Insomniac is awesome! They get the community involved with the development of the game by allowing anyone to submit skins/costumes. Then they give away the costumes for free :D

haha love you Insomniac :)

Great job guys. These drawings are awesome! Ratchet and Clank is definitely one of THE best Sony exclusives out there. Insomniac RULES! By the way, does anyone know if there will be a sequel to Crack in Time?

Redikol said:

The Adventurer Ratchet is my pick for 1st place, but i agree, the Fish Tank Clank is awesome, definitely 1st place!
