    I'm going to head over to the "Walmarks" after work this afternoon to pick up a few TF's I've had my eye on (if they are still there). one was Ravage. the moment i saw this dude i wanted him. when i finally saw him in the store I was a tad underwhelmed. he just didn't catch my eye like i had originally thought. not only does he seem to have less articulation than i originally thought, but the entry mode just seems lazy. I know they sacrificed a true alt mode to keep his cat mode more movie accurate but looking at him after seeing the movie, he seems to be missing that bad ass style. is he really worth the price?

    the others I'm looking at picking up are

    mudflap: to finish my twins

    voyager Megs: love the alt mode AND robot mode but still debating on if i want to go with scale and pick up leader to go with leader Prime or just get this one instead. I'm not getting both. i cant justify owning more than one mold of each figure. (except the ice cream truck of course).

    Rampage: been meaning to pick this one up since it's release

    i really can't think of any others i want! i currently own:

    Leader Prime
    Skids
    Sideswipe
    Mix Master
    Soundwave


    that's it! nothing else is really appealing to me at the moment. I do need a Bumblebee but i've been holding off for the HA version.
    if you all have any suggestions on any other current ROTF toys that are on the more challenging side to transform please let me know. I'm all about the intricacy.

    thanks in advance!

    He's definitely worth a purchase...not the greatest deluxe ever, but he looks badass, articulation is pretty good, and the transformation is passable. He doesn't match up scale wise with the rest of the line, but he's certainly a cool looking figure.

    He's cool. I transformed him into re-entry mode once. And that will most likely be the last time I ever do that.

    Ravage is awesome. He does have good articulation, and he just looks bad ass.

    The only other ROTF figure that is intricate enough is Jetfire. From what I've heard/seen, his transformation is almost as good as Leader Prime, IMO.

    Ravage is great, definitely worth the 9 dollar price tag.

    I'd say Ravage is a neat figure, if all you want is just to own a figure of the character. Other then that, he doesn't really do much.

    To comment on the Voyager Megatron, if scale isn't a big issue with you, then I'd highly recommend that version. I really like it, and other then the green, he's alt-mode is a lot more screen accurate then the leader class, as well as the robot-mode, aside from the wing panels.
    The panels don't bother me, cause if you pose them right they make him look like a mechanized demon lord.

    It depended on the light.
    Overall I think he came off more silver in the movie.

    Ravage is awesome. The level of detail is a level up from anything we've had a in a line before Revenge of the Fallen. He looks really good.

    Voyager Megatron is awesome too. He's very poseable and the green looks much better in person. It's a very metallic green, and works with the mold. If you're already liking the design I say go for it - he's a nice toy.
