    I started this guy last fall and fell into somewhat of a rut for a while, then I ran out of good spray painting weather, so I asked SentinalSupreme to finish up the paint work for me...(he's a better painter than me anyways, lol)

    The idea for this came from the stripes on Ravage's back. I installed a blue light in his eyes that I got from a Halloween necklace, and hollowed out the 2 halves of his chest cavity with a dremel to hold the battery. As you'll be able to see in the pics, the wire is way too long and has to be shortened before it will fit, which will be done sometime this week. I also removed the old tail and added a tail from an old spawn figure on a ball joint, just for something different. The tail swivels 360 degrees, and it's bendable.

    The paint job is all the work of SentinalSupreme. All I did in that department was primer the main body. Bro I really can't thank you enough for doing such a kick ass job! I'm looking forward to working with you again.

    If Tigatron came on a card, the bio on the back would read something like this: After the battle in Egypt, Rachet arranged to have Ravage's body transported back to N.E.S.T. headquarters for research. After weeks of major repairs and intense reprogramming, Ravage was successfully reformatted into the Autobots new secret weapon in tracking down the remaining Decepticons hiding Earth- Tigatron

    Very interesting. I tend to think the mechanical animals should be on the side of good, and these colours work surprisingly well on Ravage, particularly with the blue light. Tigatron does bear Maximal faction symbols, which doesn't align particularly well with the proffered bio. I think it is the bio that makes better sense of the two.

    Wowee

    I agree, those colors are perfect for Ravage. And that tail... I wish they made one like that on the stock figure! Great work!

    Not currently, but maybe eventually. That's a good idea though.

    Thanks for the compliments guys!
