    Ravage is another new entry into the Titans Return line, and he's a definite improvement over Stripes, though still my least favorite of the three updated cassette Legends.

    Photo 069 makes this toy look brilliant. I mean, it\'s an okay if flawed toy but that shot is fantastic. Good work!

    So am I one of the few that really likes Stripes and Ravage? They are just way to much fun to hate!

    You're not alone. I love all of the Titans return tape-bots, and I really hope Hasbro releases more.

    A horrible looking figure. The Takara version looks only slightly better. :(

    Found the figure to be rather disappointing. It seems like Hasbro has been doing pretty good with other small figures which makes it seem like they should have been able to do something better with Ravage.

    The weakest of the tape bot remakes so far. Definitely suffers for the third mode, but he's still very much an enjoyable figure.

    This has to be my most regrettable Transformers purchase this year. I transformed it once before passing it off to dad. Universe Ravage is better than this.

    Nope, I like them as well. They have a lot of character and are decently posable. The flaws they have (mostly those horizontal side panels) aren't as bad in person. Not great figures, but not terrible.

    I think this mold is bad on literally a "how did this ever make it off the drawing board much less into stores" level, but I have to admit, you managed to make him look halfway decent in that first pic up there. Also, the comparison with Stripes, man oh man was Stripes headsculpt weird.

    But seriously, why, why the light grey? why not charcoal or matte-vs-gloss black if he had to be two-tone.

    The lineup shot made me appreciate how brilliant the Universe 2.0 versions transformation is.

    Personally i still think Laserbeak looks worse.
    even the canned Titanium Ravage looked better.

    You know you did something wrong when you make Titanium look good.

    The third mode really cripples the bird and tiger molds. It's a shame, because the robot mold does it so well. Maybe if they had switched the third modes for the two animals, redundant as it would be? The transformations would probably be smoother that way.

    doesn't look amazing but still decent. switch the paws with stripes and the colors will at least look better.

    I'd like to see some silver rockets equipped to him, which might disguise those 'wings' his jaguar mode has. That might improve things.

    I don't think he looks terrible. Definitely not a very strong figure, but I'm not going to write him off just yet. I'll be picking him up one day and see for myself.

    Eager to get Ravage from my Pile of Loot.  I like his shape and I am on board with the tablet motif for Buzzsaw and the TR casseticons. I still think that a new headsculpt can make this guy into Steeljaw pretty easily as well.

    Awesome pictures!

    I'm not the biggest fan of this figure / mold, but he still looks pretty bad-ass.

    This mold is hideous. Honestly, they should have just forgot about doing a vehicle mode and they could have done so much better with this guy. Or come up with a different vehicle that didn't create such problems with the Jaguar mode.
