    credit for the idea needs to go to my girlfriend. She only buys soundwave, ravage and Dinobot toys. When she got her ravage today she was disappointed that the tail couldn't move forward like it does in the CG photos. She asked me if I could fix it and I was surprised how easy it was to change.

    It took about 10 minutes with the dremel tool and was relatively easy.

    1. you cut out the furthest vertebrae on ravages backside cutting a V slot.

    2. you grind down the first spike at the mid-pivot point in the tail.

    hopefully my pictures will help

    Ack! Territory-marking Ravage. My cat used to do that until I got him fixed.

    I like the mod. It does make him seem more action-oriented.

    Would it be easy to dremel a whole and put a twist tie in it?
