    I've been trying to figure out how everyone came to a consensus on the name. I've been looking around and I didn't see any official sources which called him crowbar. Don't get me wrong I like that name better and when I list my second one I will be calling it crowbar. I just want to know where the name came from?

    If they don't announce a hatchet toy at the San Diego comic con I have plans on making one! I'm basically going to a crankcase over a deluxe ravage

    I've been trying to do the toy from memory and it's been a pain in the but. do know where I can find some still images to help me with movie accuracy?

    Crowbar is his official name. He's got a legion class figure :) 

    As for official images, if you look up the Dreads on the tfwiki.net they show their concept art.

    Anyway, great custom! I'm in the process of making my Crankcase's dreadlocks more poseable.

    I just attached a small lego clip on the thigh. This is what allows the doors to part form!

    Thanks for all the advice and compliments and taking the time to look. :)

    The Cyberverse toy calls him Crowbar.

    VERY cool. I can't wait to see how acurate this is when I see the movie tomorrow.

    Now all we need is a Hatchet. :lolol :

    I really like it, those long dreads add a very cool demeanor to the figurine. And using the Doc Oc tentacles was a bright idea.

    Very good, but Crankcase is not the name of the long haired dread (his name is hooligan in pre-production arts)
