was my pun that transparent? how embarryssing...
I'm just looking the other way now.
Really hoping this guy will be as easy to acquire as the Quintesson boxset was!
And I only see it advertised on the US version too. I wonder if they’ll make it available for UK.
That being said I’ve seen other US exclusives become available in UK stores. I put in a preorder for Origin Bumblebee at Star Action Figures just recently, in fact. If it’s only US available, I can still get around it by having it delivered to a forwarding address with Stackry, but it’d be cool to get directly if possible.
The cat mode for the upcoming Ravage does look a bit weird, although they at least made a bit more effort to not make it look just like a melanistic cheetah, like Shadow Panther does. (Although Ravage doesn’t look quite like a jaguar or leopard either. It’s like a strange hybrid panther/cheetah hybrid.)
The Cheetor figure gets some stick, but I was impressed they did such a good job with the beast mode. He actually looks like a cheetah. (The first Beastwars G1 version of the toy doesn’t. He’s more like a Jaguar with cheetah markings.) Trouble is, they (understandably) want to reuse the mould so it gets used for other cat-bots who don’t turn into cheetahs. At least Ravage did get bulked up a bit.
That's a barry good move.
Sorry, bad puns are how eye roll.
Don't all combiners partsform in some way? Isn't that kind of the appeal of combination?
Technically all combiners are partsformers by definition.
But a decent amount of collectors hate partsforming combiners.
Yeah. But a few have done it where the individual members do not partsform to become part of the combiner. MMC All-Built-In Perfection Assaultus (Bruticus) for example, has the hands and feet built into the bots that become the arms and legs. And the chest has no kibble involved in becoming the core body.
I would like to see a combiner team combine and un-combine without partsforming. Would be a neat trick.
Plus: What the heck does this have to do with Ravage?
That would be like Human Centipede
Partforming seemed more interesting than Citizen Ravage
