Dunno if I'm late to the game with this but I thought it was nice touch by Hasbro/Takara.
Sweet! Does he also fit inside G1 or Encore Soundwave?
I believe it fits in the double tape soundwave. Either 2007's toys r us reissue or the rare japanese soundblaster.
jesus, it looks like laserbeak's head grafted on ravage's body....
yes, it fits in one slot , took me a while to get him in with Lazerbeak, but finally got it.
I had a hard time getting him into a dual slot. (if laser beak or any other g1 cassette)
But yes Ravage 2.0 fits in a single slot SW.
Not when he comes with the sweetest Hound in history!
To be honest, Hound is a little too generic looking in my opinion. Standing next to Cyclonus on my desk he just looks so plain...his alt mode is awesome though.
If the eye had just been placed a little higher and further back on the head....
I'm not really liking Hound & Ravage, although I will buy them and give them a chance. I don't really see how they made this Ravage any better than the original...
Are you serious? Granted the lack of poseable ankles and no diecast is a hinderance. but the mold and style is loads better. The fact that he is no longer a two dimensional puma is all the bettter.
See my pic.
Old Ravage looks hilarious compared to the new one, like a cardboard cut some kid made.
Where's old Ravage's tail? You have him bobbed?
I agree that Hound looks generic. I was initailly going to get the two-pack and trade off Hound, but I may try to bash him into a GIJoe Vamp or something.
I'd really like to see them re-do the rest of the main cassettes as well, mainly a Rumble with piledriver arms.
Ravage is 3-dimensional now rather than flat like the G1 version.
The head on the new one is like weird.
Oriignal head + new body = win
Take away new Ravage's jaw and you have Laserbeak's head. That's distracting.
it is there. its just the angle I shot the pic. New Ravage hides the tail.
id argue that hes not better than the orignal, the original microman toy is a work of art, its simple ingenuity, superbly tight sculpt and construction make it a classic toy, it actually looks like a puma, very sleek (ok, a stylised charicature of one, maybe thats its strength)
universe ravage is still very well done considering he represents pretty much a freebie or about $1 of the final price of the hound/ravage combo, to my mind the move to a more 3D figure is an improvement and is ingenious anyway.
