    I just got mine today. He is awesome. I took some pics. I still think someone had the Black Lion in mind when they repainted him. He looks great next to my two ROTF Ravages. Did a canon swap which also makes the ROTF Ravage look more G1.

    I think you're right about the Black Lion. Cool pictures.

    Mine came in the mail yesterday and I think this repaint actually makes the figure look good! Nice repaint IMO.

    I'm really glad the tail is still black, so I can use my spare bits from a regular Ravage to give this one a fully articulated tail. :D

    The Lion observation is dead on.... I knew I'd seen a paint scheme like that before! lol Just thought I'd mention that mine came today and I was pretty happy with it. I didn't realize that it had chromed pieces that make it stand out so nicely.

    man, i gotta say, recon ravage and the 2 pack soundwave look rather great together. the colors compliment each other nicely. looks like i may hafta swipe my son's soundwave and give him my rotf preview version when my ravage gets here...maybe.

    I just really wish the rear legs were chromed too, it just looks off balanced. That's my only complaint though.

    I will sacrifice my two ROTF Ravages to do that too.

    The chrome looks nice.

    Dear Hasbro,

    Add more chrome to Transformers.

    I'm going to repaint that one spot.

    i am really digging the box and letter and coupon setup of this mail in redemption offer that hasbro did...not liking the fact they made this guy avaliable to other markets...but what can you do?,

    but for little kids....this is a cool setup...the letter from optimus about capturing ravage...nice touch hasbro!

    and the toy is pretty tricked out looking with the chrome and redeco...now i need to get me a sea assault ravage when it becomes avaliable....

    The letter from Optimus Prime is pretty cool. I know I would have liked that as a kid.

    Got mine yesterday (one for me, one for the little girl)...the only complaint I have is the rear legs...why just chrome the front legs?
    Snazzy color scheme, though...
