    Well Thanks to Plowking I got my Jag Ravage today, So now I have a useless character named Battle Ravage...

    But while looking over BR's head I started thinking...

    With longer ears and longer fangs and some bright purple paint in vehicle mode BR could make a convincing Ratbat...

    And if i can ether repro the Alt Rumble tape chest plate or scratch build one and remove the smaller roof part he would fit the hommage of a casetticon.

    and besides i need to fill out the con ranks some more.

    think i should try it?

    Go for it. Would you go for clear plastic for the chest plate, or styrene?

    If i can repro the Rumble chest it'll probably be from epoxy or the plumbers putty that hardens in 7 minutes, I'll use Supersculpy as the mold base and fill it with whatever i end up using...
    or i might get a real micro cassette (non tf) and hack it up for a chest piece and add hinges so it can fold up to hide the head in vehicle mode.

    and yes the Battle Ravage Alt (Corvette)

    No pics at the moment but i have re-done the new ears about 3 times and i think this time they might just be the way I wanted them I also found a Actual micro cassette.

    And I think i'll leave the Vehicle mode mostly Black as A purple corvette isn't really looking to great (Had someone PS a pic) but if i can get a set of the Lemans Stripes in a dark purple from reprolabels, I think they have a set like that already....

    so in between the Blue Rumble Wip, Perceptor, Ironhide, and Ratbat im not getting much sleep lol but i also blame work for that :p 

    Thank god Trailbreaker is almost done just gotta finish the tonnel cover...
