    Having some success with scrapformers, I've considered doing Season2&Season3 characters a few times...But I've never gotten around to it.
    On the otherhand...These two I got the idea for and mostly had fully built in the same day.


    - Built to be Basic-Class. Rampage comes from a modified RazorClaw whereas Depthcharge comes from a modified Terrorsaur.
    - Rampage got some extra parts from Alligator Megatron&Cicadacon, and another RazorClaw to make sure he had two big claws instead of one. Meanwhile Fuzor Airhammer&Buzzclaw finished up Depthcharge.
    - Depthcharge got his shark cannon which does Correctly store under him in beast mode(or inside him in robot mode, albeit uncomfortably) and his tail untabs from the terrorsaur neckjoint to attach to his hand. The sword's peg also helps ensure the tail doesn't just go limp in beast mode and keeps it mostly straight.
    - Whereahs Rampage got his big hulking tripple-barrel bazooka from both a Clawjail tail and a Cyberverse Dreadwing cannon, with the two smaller barrels being made from the smaller clawjaw crab claws. This was done so that it could correctly tab into the waist piece for beast mode, providing a semi-tank mode cannon as in the show.

    - Rampage, Terrorize! -

    I had an absolutely blast making this and seeing it being done. I have no complaints...
    Okay actually I do; Rampage is so nearly perfect I KIND OF want to keep him for my minicon collection, but he's just a little too big for it. Guess I'll have to get on that sometime soon, right?

    Very impressive! These look great. Depthcharge's beast mode is particularly clever.

    You are absolutely correct. I don't know how I thought both the squid&crab shared a name. I guess I was thinking of Razorclaw(Crab) vs Razorclaw(predacon Tigahawk).

    These are both great! That Rampage is especially done well. Almost perfect. Depth Charge is good in robot mode, but beast mode is lacking, which I understand is because of the mold you used. I had a thought a while back of using McDonalds Manta Ray as a reshell for making a basic class pre-Transmetal Depth Charge, and I wonder if elements from that could be used to make the beast mode more accurate. Regardless, solid effort all around.
