    I actually think he looks weird with his back legs extended outwards so that his body is longer. Looks better with them pushed in to me so I just leave them like that.

    Ravage looks pretty limited articulation wise.

    He's missing left and right articulation for his ankle and head but that's about it. I mean it's not like he would be doing any crazy poses besides just standing there regardless. I might mod it in the future to make it a ball joint or something.

    Yeh, that’s my biggest complaint about this release. No articulation in the body (waist, torso, etc) and tail. Limited leg articulation too. And I feel he’s kind of small. But still a pretty figure.

    It's obvious Ravage was a victim of the accounting department.

    "How much would articulation cost? More than zero dollars? Cut it!!"

    I hadn’t consider that. You might be right :) 

    My guess was for the transformation gimmick. There were a few skeptical design choices such as the plastic sheet inside Soundwave’s tape compartment, which could also be seen in the arm pit. Usually ThreeZero sculpts all those details, but then I realized that plastic printed sheet is to insert Ravage smoothly. Then it became clear that ravage might be smaller too having to fit in the chest. Then I all the articulation was removed because Ravage is too small to add more articulation.

    Anyway, that’s just my theory LOL. Basically a larger and more articulate Ravage was compromised for the transformation gimmick.

    The transformation is 100% the reason for it being inaccurate in scale and limited in articulation but the figure overall doesn't really lose anything from it imo. At least for me, I just kind of view Ravage as a small accessory so the stuff lacking on him doesn't really bother me too much.

    Ideally they should have just included a second pre-transformed Ravage and then one that's fully articulated and correct in scale. Maybe if they do a Premium scale of him.
