    That big hole through ravage with the super thin plastic at the top is a downright stupid design choice, and pretty much unforgivable.

    Would love to see Nightfang with Music Label Soundwave in some capacity. Pending that, you got me sold on that Ratbat!

    I'd consider Ratbat if he was sold for $15 without the Ravage. But I think I'll pass. I'll probably end up getting Perfect Effect's Ratbat for all the other features it has.

    I don't really mind the hole in the middle of Savage, but what I can't get over is the weird joints of the front legs. If he could somehow transform so that the legs bent forward, then he'll look more like a cat to me.

    Nightfang is as cool as advertised.

    $15? That isn't bad at all. Wish I could find a Hercules or Giant team for that much :p

    Don't do it IMO, this ratbat LOOKS much nicer for one thing. PE's Ratbat's only redeeming feature is the giant spear mode. The bat mode isn't very good, the ship mode isn't very good, and even with the spear mode some of the plastic tubing on mine cracked because the pegs are too large. Ratbat is PE's WORST figure in my eyes.

    Bountyman stated he would get Ratbat if he was sold separately for $15. But there is no such option at the moment.

    Too bad too, because that Ratbat really has my interest.

    If the front legs are on balljoints (Ravage/Savage) why not rotate the upper legs backwards 180degrees? Shouldn't the front legs be more catlike?

    In the video, the reviewer says he got them for $15.

    And yeah, PE's Kingbat was a let down! The trident mode is nice and all, but the shaft kept coming apart into the individual pieces.

    I like Nightfang's appearance, but Savage is a major letdown for me. Was also hoping for packs to attach to their back, but oh well.

    When BTS sent me the figures, they told me $15 was the going price for the pair. At Robot Kingdom, they are going for $20, at BBTS they go for $29.99.

    Now you have learned a truthful lesson in the world of profit mark ups.

    I like them both. Savage needs ears and Night Fang needs to be able to articulate its legs independently from each other. Even at the marked up price, a set of two 3rd party cassettes for under $30 is a fair price, especially since they come with the cassette cases. The cases make the cassettes display nicely out of the box. Thanks for sharing this review.

    Excited to get my set...and by set, I mean Ratbat. If sets are going out, I'm hopeful BBTS gets them in early next month so I can ship it w/ MP11.

    Disappointed in Ravage mainly bc of the untapped promise. Having the legs extend out from the body should have really made this figure more dynamic, but they hampered it with odd jointing and then a long neck to go with it. *sigh*
