    Whats up with those Amazon two packs? The BW Grimlock and earthmode autobots?

    Heard something about Sideswipe and Night prowler now instead of Silverbolt/Skywarp from Airazor? Or is those two things separate sets?

    The two packs were Sideswipe/Grimlock and Mirage/Skywarp. It has been changed to Sideswipe/Night Prowler. Speculation is that they did it to keep both sets the same price (presumably $40). I am guessing BW Grimlock gets released elsewhere.

    I think Shadow Panther was treated as Ravage in the early 2000's but he is also been treated as a separate character. I like to think of him as Ravage since that gives the S1 Predacon toyline their own Great War veteran to oppose Grimlock.

    Shadow Panther is not Ravage and as far as I'm aware there has never been anything official stating them to be the same character

    I prefer to think both Shadow Panther and BW Grimlock as their own characters and maybe just "inspired" by previous similar incarnations.

    BW Grimlock's bio card firmly establishes him as the G1 character

    Wonder if he's going to slide in to the Golden Disk collection.

    Though, keeping both sets the same price seems odd since the GO sets were all over the place.

    And by this point both he and the Magnaboss trio have been pretty much locked in as their G1 counterparts.

    Iirc the original was a head nod towards Ravage but they had copyright issues with the name, it was just a pretty straight redeco instead of a retool so it looked nothing like Ravage, etc. Since then he evolved so far as a different character that you really can't say they are more similar than any other homage.

    The original, which was a Takara exclusive, was established as separate from Ravage via a manga if I am not mistaken (I recall something having them working together but can't remember what it was). Takara never intended them to be the same guy. When Hasbro imported the figure through Hasbrotoycollector.com they called it Tripredacus Agent as a nod to ravage, this name was also shared by the TM2 Walmart exclusive figure that was explicitly Ravage, however this name does not make them the same character as it is more of a title or position rather than a name.

    Ahh, my Americanism is showing. I knew the Hasbro version, but not takara tomys. Either way, the point remains that whatever the origins, they are separate characters. I do appreciate the extra knowledge, bud! :)

    Wouldn't it be nice if all TFW boards operated this way? Two people with a minor miscommunication discuss it over 3 or 4 posts and resolve it rather than like 16 pages? :p

    would be nice. I'll admit, I get wrapped up in those off topic rambling debates from time to time, but I'm trying to learn to back off when it's apparent that neither side will come to any sort of agreement :lol
