    Ravage again = love.

    But doesn't this guy know that testshots should be offered with a shill bid in mind if things go awry, and to not actually have the item in hand when you put the auction up?

    ...Oh, sorry. I'm channeling Vangelus here.

    Whew, glad to see that Hound has his waist piece back. It was absent from the last set(s) of pics we had seen and I was starting to wonder if Hasbro removed it for some reason. This looks infinitely better.

    As for Cyclonus' colors... if I recall, Hasbro said that the TEST SHOTS were miscolored and would be fixed for the final release.

    Pretty sure these are test shots.

    Not that Hound isn't awesome, but the more pics I see, the more put off I am by those vaguely goat-like hooves of his. Kind of weird.

    Would've liked some alt mode pics. (robot mode in Nightstick's case)

    I think Cyclonus's nosecone stores inside his chest.

    Cyclonus looks good but really doesn't interest me, Hound on the other hand I will be buying.

    Whoa. I pretty much assumed Cyclonus' nosecone would become part of a backpack, sort of like the G1 toy, but it's GONE in robot mode, for a very cartoon-like back. I'm guessing it must tuck inside the body somehow. If so, I'm even more impressed with this toy than I already was.

    That seller also has the new Starscream.
    He seems pretty bare in the back.

    I was thinking the same thing. The feet actually remind me a lot of Animated Bumblebee's.

    Yeah, except TFA BB's feet are articulated and can lay flat. Hound's feet just seem to put him permanently on tiptoes. Besides possible stability issues, it just looks a bit odd.

    Hound's feet are kinda weird, but he's still a great looking fig! Cyclonus looks good as well, too bad about the colorscheme though.:lol

    his Tf really hides the alt mode well, the nose point most likely retracts and then the nose assembly as you say folds inside the chest, looks like the lower legs are formed from 2 halves which makes for a more interesting TF.

    Who cares. Considering we're getting such a wicked (and first ever) articulated update of a fan favorite character like Ravage as a free bonus with an equally awesome new mold of Hound, we're really lucking out and shouldn't be questioning the 'why' of of it. :)  Maybe this will be the method of delivery for a couple more updated Con cassettes *fingers crossed*.

    But for the record, they apparently paired them together because of the G1 episode where Ravage catches a ride on Hound in cassette mode to infiltrate Autobot HQ. It's a split second moment hardly worthy of an homage since you would never remember it if it wasn't specifically pointed out, so it's understandable why a lot of people are confused by it. Personally, I think pairing Hound with Rumble would have made more sense, but whatever. :p
