    Again, it just weirds me out !!
    It's like looking at your pets trying to be bipedal !!
    Is he the only BW that had it's animal head as it's bot head ??
    Also whats the point of having an alt mode if you're just moving from a diagonal position to a vertical position :D

    As a one-off character, BW Ravage was just a quick model reuse. Mainframe modified the Transmetal Cheetor body, and slapped Tigatron's beast head on its shoulders. In his lone transformation sequence there, he somehow still retained his G1 cassette alt-mode (extra large), though.

    Back in the day, Takara actually managed to release a toy representing that version of Ravage, but of course it didn't transform into a cassette. It was a remold of the Transmetal Cheetor toy, with a new beast/robot head, forearms, chest, and weapons.

    This toy is two things. It's primarily based on IDW Ravage, circa More Than Meets the Eye/Lost Light. That's where the "beast mode" design comes from. He never transformed when he had this design. But since the toy this was remolded from could transform (based on IDW "The Pet"/Dominus Ambus), the humanoid form here goes back to homaging BW Ravage's robot mode.

    Assuming he was human sized he ended up about as big as a vhs tape.

    But yeah he clearly mass shifted like crazy for the dumb visual.

    Thanks for the explanation :D 
    Probably a little more than I needed but does fill in the gaps for what little knowledge I have about the character.
    Still, just can't get over his bot mode just being the same mode upright !! But now I get it !!

    Lol, impossible but yet, not impossible !!
    Considering the mass shifting with this dude would still be nowhere near as complex as G1 Megatron had to be to shrink to 1/80th of his size or whatever the scale !!

    Lol I thought it was a black and white image but then I saw the eyes and I realised he’s just black and grey.
    Awesomely dumb visual though.
    Aww looks so nice with him. It’ll be so cool as well if MMC made a Soundwave.

    We need a reissue of Megatron first. I suggested an IDW Orion pax to Optimus Prime figure and they said Optimus was too important a character to skip. 386A4969-0D4E-46DA-9A2C-4E1E0179EAEE.png

    Right. Optimus and Soundwave had a big thing going on late-phase IDW. Makes sense if they did them around a similar time. Ideally I’d want the Evergreen designs since they’ve had no justice and I’m tired of the same old Optimus.

    Conflicted, I love beastformers, but the upgrade pack to bump up the price annoys me... If only they released the figure alone. Might still get him, though.

    Well, that starts to look like IDW Ravage.
    When Megatron gave up the Decepticon cause, and Ravage gave him a stern talking to in MTMTE, that was a rad scene and made me love IDW Ravage. I really want this now.

    Edit: Jeez, 80 dollars! I didn't get the MMC Ravage cause I though it was overpriced. Jeez.
    Maybe I can sell the Megatron helmet and stuff for a few bucks.

    I’m wondering why he doesn’t have his own thread? He’s sharing it with BW Ravage?

    Beautiful picture, @hardreturn

    My understanding is so the price is justified. Cause there’s a specific number they need to hit.

    Mislabeling. Same exact toy but leans far more in to being IDW Ravage than BW Ravage which is why he comes with a bunch of extras for Tyrantron, has the IDW color scheme/layout and particular body features rather than more Beast Wars stuff.

    If it's packaged in cat mode I'll never transform this.
