    Hey guys, let me know if this works.

    I want to turn Alt. Ravage into Alt. Primal, should I do it?

    I'm not feeling it.....I guess the mold isn't bulky enough.

    Oh my God, really? Cause I LOVE it! That's brilliant. Seeing as how a lot of people are picking up an Ironhide head from Sculptbot for their Alt Optimus, this will leave plenty of Prime heads to do this with. Then when you consider nobody needs two Ravages... well, like I said, brilliant.

    It is a great concept, don't get me wrong. I just don't like the body. But to each his own, I guess.

    I think it's neat! This body works well for Primal because of the big chunky, gun-bulging forearms and the broad shoulders.... it looks ape-like. And the maximal symbol looks sharp on his chest.

    The one thing that doesn't work for me is the blue color of the head.... it kinda clashes with the rest of the body somehow. Maybe if you painted the helmet black... or added some touches of blue somewhere else on the body to tie it together a little more.

    But overall, I think it's really nice! This mold seems to suit a munkee better than any of the other Alt molds! :)

    I think its great. The color scheme and overall distribution is the same, the dual barreled forearm guns look just like the red dual barreled gun hidden in the left arm of the original toy, and it even has flip up backpack missile launchers! The original primal didnt have that much blue on him anyways. Neat idea

    I agree. How about blue swords? I think that's what tied in the colors of the original.

    I think your head works better than the RM head. Though it needs a bit of paint. Otherwise looking good!

    Like it! Works a lot better than the Ravage head did.

    The thing is that I didn't ever really kitbash it, I used the back half of Ravage's head, and front half of BWX Primal's and just loosely connected them with the screw from the BWX Primal, and the Maximal sticker is just a quick photoshop job, I guess I either have to print one or get one from reprolabel if I'm gonna go ahead with it, or perhaps I should do the chest piece like STPrime's version?

    Actually, a japanese kitbasher beat him first. Saw it on the Livedoor tf img board a few months ago.
