    this is a ridiculous little mod. totally unnecessary. but I had some time to kill while waiting for some glue and paint to dry. I love the new ravage but I was rather disappointed in the lack of movement in his shoulders and feet.
    SO...

    With the added articulation it'll be easier for Ravage to reach his food dish and prowl about. You did a great job on this. Too bad there isn't a way to add ball and socket joints to his shoulders & hips...

    ..there isn't a way to add ball and socket joints to his shoulders and hips, is there?

    Looks good. Real good. I think a tutorial is in order. Also, have you considered trying to articulate the jaw as well?

    DID you swap with G1 Ravage? I was considering trying that, but figured it wouldn't work.

    Looks great!

    Naw look to be the same legs that came with it. Only thing a can figure out is the feet were cut off the and a piece of styrene or some other build material was made in the a joint hinge like thing that uses pins.

    add for the leg I think the same thing was done in a thread here that gave elbow articulation the legends figures. Should be fairly easy to find.

    thanks guys,

    that's exactly it. I did you use the same legs. chopped 'em up and articulated the shoulders and feet. 'cept I used styrene instead of proper pins. I've been meaning to get a tut going on this I've promised that I'll get one up. so stay tuned.
    well ravage is all done. I'll get a gallery going up sometime this week.
    cheers guys.

    that's how he did it. :D  cut the shoulders, drill hole, insert pins. for the toes though it seems a bit more complicated

    Every Ravage should've been that way from the start.

    I'd love to get this done to mine. (It'd probably also get me to get back to that Laserbeak I kind of set aside indefinitely.)
