    Device Label Ram-Horn update#1

    I took the knock-off Device Label Ravage and am in the process of converting it to Autobot Ramhorn. I came up with the idea for this when they announced Blaster a few months back, but when they canceled him, I scrapped the project. However, now that Blaster is now going to be re-released, I decided to continue with the project. I mean, what's an Autobot played without his tapes? Going along with that, I also have plans to get a Device Label Cheetor and remove it's spots to make Steeljaw.

    For those who are curious, I used Lego pieces to make the horns and the legs were cut down with a Dremel tool and glued back together to make them shorter. If you try this project, I would recommend the knock-off Ravage as it is put together with screws and not rivets like the real Device Label Ravage. Hope you enjoy; please comment.

    Update #1
    Upon everyone's advice, I made the horns detachable. Also my girlfriend saw how much trouble I was having painting, so she decided to sit down and show me the right way to do it. She painted the entire toy beautifully. With Soundwave being her favorite Decepticon, she was very disappointed to have to paint a Ravage toy into an Autobot. All kidding aside, a big thanks to my girlfriend.

    Are those horns on that USB key, or is it just happy to see me? :D 

    First off... BRILLIANT!

    Secondly... maybe the horns should fold away?

    I wanted to do that, but I was just too lazy. One does pull off but the other is glued in place, so really, it's just that happy to see everyone. My nickname for him, I thought, could be HARD-drive. ha ha ha...

    That actually looks pretty cool. Nice job. The horns are slightly disappointing, but that's just a minor gripe.

    BTW, where does one get their hands on a KO DL Ravage?

    Maybe the horns could be modded to become some kind of key chain attachement or something? I don't know - it's a great idea, though, and the rhino mode looks great!

    Not sure how feasible this would be, but how about adding flat panels to the sides of the body to "bulk up" your Ramhorn custom? This way the horns can be stowed away in altmode.

    Anyone got direct links to the ko's? I don't normally buy ko's but I'd like to use some to do projects on the more expensive stuff. Don't like to start hackin away at expensive stuff.
