    Didn't see this posted anywhere here yet, Ben Yee at Welcome to Ben's World of Transformers | BWTF has put up pics of the elusive mail-in Ravage and other stuff:

    -Pics of the BB Vs Soundwave NEST package Mission Guide and pic of mail-in Ravage.

    -NEST Alliance catalogue scans, including (NOT AN EXCLUSIVE) G1 Blades-themed Blazemaster redeco. (NOT AN EXCLUSIVE) Also confirms the Hasbro release of Red Rampage.

    Just to head off confused people saying "Hasbro sucks for making X G1-themed toy an exclusive" complaints: Evac is NOT AN EXCLUSIVE as far as we know. Wait for detail confirmation before deriding them, I say ;)

    'Evac'(Blades) looks much better in those colours. It's supposed to be a crappy mold, I probably shouldn't have got it in the original deco.

    AWESOME! :D  I want that Ravage! Three NEST stickers won't be too hard, especially when one comes WITH the Bumblebee/Soundwave 2-pack.

    Evac looks nice as well.

    This mail-away exclusive thing is really neat and I'm glad to see Hasbro doing something like this again. I especially like the little "story" they've built up around the exclusive Ravage repaint. I originally wasn't planning to get the Soundwave/BB two-pack but will definitely pick it up now, more for the Mission Guide and required sticker than for the figures themselves, though. And I already have Bludgeon and Recon Ironhide on pre-order, so that right there would give me all the stickers I need. I hope this idea is success so we see more of these in the future.

    I'll be passing on the Evac and "Skipjack" repaints, though. I can't see owning another version of the Blazemaster mold, since it's not very good. Rampage is a decent figure, but I prefer the yellow deco and am trying to cut back on repaints anyway.

    I was really hoping for a Legends red Ramapge and/or Legends gray Demolishor... Maybe later.

    EVAC! As a redeco! Again!

    I guess that Flaming Ravage will go good next to The Flaming Fallen. Pass on both.

    That Deluxe Red Rampage is pretty much the only character redeco fig I'll pick up.

    Not sure what the Blades talk is about. Evac looks orange to me.

    Interesting. It's interesting to see that the mail-away figure is a repaint of Ravage. While I was never planning on getting the mold, I'll be getting the 2-pack, so I might as well get the mail-away figure too. Now the starter sticker makes sense. $4.95 is about what I would have expected for the S&H. The deco on him is definitely interesting. It at least looks more interesting then the original one does. It won't be difficult to obtain two more stickers for Ravage. After I get all the figures I plan to get, I'll probably have enough for a couple of Ravage's.

    Evac looks interesting, though I currently don't see myself getting it (the arms on that mold still really bother me). I'm going to wait for more pictures before I make a final decision on him.

    Anybody else think it's slightly odd that the Rampage repaint doesn't have anything added to it's name? Like Desert Attack Rampage or something like that. I'll probably put the Ravage repaint in the place I was saving for "Skipjack". The Rampage mold is nice, but like TF1's Jazz mold, one version is enough.

    BWTF back with force. :thumb 

    Awesome looking Ravage. He actually goes great with that Infiltrator Soundwave.

    Evac again huh......not expected, but also not surprised by this.

    I wish they would have done Blazemaster in red as Blades. Even so, he does look sweet as Evac. Definite buy, as well as red Rampage. I'm debating on the BB/SW pack, though, I was hoping Ravage would be silver and movie accurate.

    Actually yes I do. The way they are going on about him, you would think they would've named him "Priority Target Ravage" or some such.

    I'm glad the mail-away exclusive is something I don't actually want. Can't be bothered with the hassle.

    That's awesome! It'll go great with the Soundwave in the pack, since both of them have red accents.

    Really glad to see Hasbro doing this.

    Was slightly dissapointed with the Ravage repaint at first, but it looks really cool, and it is an exclusive. Will be getting this pack. Also, finally confirmation of the Red Rampage.

    :D  I was kinda concerned that Ben had closed-up his site for good but I'm glad he's rebooted it with a new lease of life :)  (I'm guessing Ben's Mates at Hasbro are still hooking him up with news... :wink: )

    I know right. The funny thing is too is that I was thinking about him the other day, and I was about to ask if anyone heard from him. I'm so glad he is still around though, he's he's always been such a great guy.
