    i'm sure there's a connection between the two, but could someone point me in the direction. i haven't watched g1 episodes so it's probly somewhere in there. i'll get around to watching all of them eventually but for now, i just wanna know why ravage is with hound.

    thanks!

    Yup it's in the pilot, so whenever you start watching G1 is probably when you're going to see it.

    And yeah all of the 25th anniversary toys (besides the Optimus reissue) so far are new molds.

    What interests me is how we were told Ravage would fit in Soundwave's chest - I'm guessing they mean G1/TRU re-issue SW!

    Yep, Ravage has a cassette mode that is in scale with the other G1 tapes.

    For some reason I'm more excited for Nightstick, Ravage and Jolt then I am for the larger toys they come with. The smaller transformers always amaze me.

    I know what you mean, I think it's because smaller TFs are engineered with better articulation than predecessors in similar scale (taking Animated Activators Starscream as an example). It's always interesting to see how they'll pull it off. As much as I like G1 Ravage, he's a little tricky to balance so I can't wait to see his revamped version.

    Yes, he has to have balljoints or universal joints for the transformation to work I think. The body of the cat is the middle of the cassette, the legs raise up and out to the sides for cassette mode. That's the impression I got from seeing him twice now.

    When exactly did Ravage hide out on Hound?? When you guys say the pilot, are you talking MMTE, or some episode that is evidently not part of the DVD compilation?

    Only time I ever remember seeing Ravage get into the base in MMTE was when Spike carried Soundwave (evidently containing Ravage) into the base. Ravage was subsequently caught and caged up while Soundwave got away. Only other incident like this that I can think of was when Laserbeak snuck into the base on Brawn's shoulder...
    could somebody kindly provide a screen cap of when this deal with Ravage and Hound occurred??

    I'm so exited for Hound. He's like one of my favourite G1 characters.

    I don't offhand recall Ravage hiding in Hound in cassette mode. However, Hound was the one (with Mirage) keeping guard over Ravage when he 'drops' the keys to let him out of the cage; I think that's basically where the double act comes into play.

    The cassette mode for Ravage I believe is being advertised as a form of 'prison transport' mode (since they're gambling that most kids now don't even know what a cassette is).
