    So this little bad-boy has been looooooong-overdue now, had to wrap-up some other projects before I started on this guy with a clear-mind. I thought Laserbeak was a head-scratcher, but this little cat is gonna be much-more challenging & tricky to pull-off! Shooting for similar G1-transformation, I'm having to get VERY creative & think a LOT further out-the-box to make this happen, nothing but problems so-far crammin' & packin' everything in there......but I'm determined to make it a reality. I started with the challenge of getting the front-leg to expand-out twice to increase the width of both the leg and body, while retaining leg and claw/foot-articulation for the best possible aesthetic. Now that the front-leg is done, I can begin mapping-out the back-leg configuration so I can see what's left to work-with for his little self-contained side-guns I have in mind. This will look very different than the G1-tape-cat & cartoon-Ravage we know so well, with a VHS aesthetic-twist & original-design, so keep an open-mind! :cool:

    Gonna have to follow this one closely! I'm still amazed at the engineering it took to cram so much bird into so little VHS. Best of luck to you!

    Next time go hard and do a Squawkbox combiner, I dare you

    Again with the impossible! Looking good so far.

    I found this, might be a good image to crop out the label and add it to this guy and Lazerbeak!

    I gotta wonder is a more feline themed movie may be more appropriate, like Lion King, or Jungle Book?

    If someone can mock that up, maybe they can do a Birds of Prey for Laserbeak?
