    I didn't know where to put this, so if it gets moved, all I ask is that I be told where it's getting moved to.

    As most of you know, I am working on an enourmous Optimus Prime Sculpt. Well, someone on another board came to me asking about making a 1:2 scale Ravage - I might have the name wrong, but its the wolf-looking Decepticon from the last flick, Revenge of the Fallen.

    Now, to you all, what would you all think of something like this, cast in metal, articulated to some degree, lights, the whole deal -

    I guess what I am asking is, do you all think there would be enough interest to offer this up??

    I do a lot of charity work here in the Tampa area, and was wondering, maybe when it's done we can auction a copy off for one of the charities?

    I do work with All Childrens Hospital and WKID 96.7-fm which is a non-profit station that helps keep kids off the streets and I work a shift there and work with the kids...

    Just an idea... So let me know your thoughts...

    I don't really think there's going to be much interest because:
    1.hardlys gets any screen time
    2.He's a Decepticon.

    But in 1/2 scale I would go for it

    So, that being said, what about something like, an Autobot, or a Fallen @ the same scale of the Prime I am working at? Now, with Prime @ 50ish Inches tall, Bumblebee would be about 40ish, and the fallen would prob. be around 65ish tall...

    Idk - give me some feedback here

    I think RID U.M. may be underestimating fan interest, however I do believe that a G1 Ravage of the same size would garnish more interest than a movie version.

    Agreed. I think G1 Ravage would knock the socks off a lot of people.
