    Thanks a lot for sharing! Wow he is a marvel of engineering!!!
    It seems the lower arms end up forming the panther back and there is a furry chest cover also hidden there for the chest and neck. Really clever.
    I like the bulkier build in beast mode, after all, panthers are far more muscular than cheetahs.
    I buy from Pulse too and ship to an American friend. Community is part of any hobby, he needs to get to know more people.

    I'd really like to hear how you did not manage to get your hands on these toys that were available everywhere.
    I think everyone is as curious as I am to read about how you managed that.
    Feel free to indulge us. We all love stories of failure at TFworld.

    Bruh.
    You guys know Pulse doesn't ship to MULTIPLE places in the world, right? Australia, New Zealand, the entirety of East and South East Asia, multiple European countries...

    So there is an inside fold-out scene (like they do with the Studio Series lines) depicting the cockpit but with a protruding cassette deck where you can actually insert G1 Ravage? This is excellent!

    Some reservations with beast-mode aside, (They should have thickened his beast legs a bit.) I'm liking this a lot. Hoping we can access this here in the UK.

    Oh and the G1 Ravage mold still holds up pretty well, doesn't it? A little too flat, but the trade-off is a cassette that actually looks like a cassette. (Okay the MP cassettes look pretty accurate and are also broader but they benefitted from more money and engineering, so not a fair comparison.)

    Is it still a remold when almost all of it is new?

    At this point, I think it's just shared parts. Most of the engineering looks to be pretty different in transformation, and the only parts I can pick out as being the same are the lower legs & feet, and the front cheetah mode legs.

    Man that looks great. I quite like the transformation too, simple yet effective.

    Well...

    There you go. I cannot buy from Pulse since Pulse isn’t available in Germany and thus I cannot order items that are exclusive to this service.

    Hasbro likes to reissue molds :) 
    Wasn't Ravage also rumored for the first year of next trilogy? It would be easier to get him there.

    Okay, I have to ask, because this is going to drive me nuts.

    In these pics, it seems he comes with two of the same guns, with the storage pegs on the left side, meaning one has to be flipped for beast mode, as such:

    And yet, in these pics, the pegs on the guns are on opposite sides, meaning one doesn't have to be flipped? Which is correct? I really hope it's the latter.

    The other pictures make it look a lot less plastic-y. Must have been weird lighting.

    I’d say the first copy accidentally came with two right guns, and the person went back and got it exchanged.

    Okay I keep finding myself coming back to these pictures, and I really want this guy!

    It's really weird, I grew up on Beast Wars, yet when Kingdom was revealed to be half Beast Wars I wasn't that interested, the figures don't match anything in my collection. Anyway due to my lack of willpower I ended up getting Beast Megatron, and in quick succession picked up the rest (still waiting on Scorponok) they have their own dedicated shelf, but I kind of had half regret that I picked them up, they're all great figures, but I don't find myself going back to them like I do a lot of other figures.

    But this Ravage is the first of the Beast Wars lot that I've instantly thought, I need that! And it's changed my mind on the rest of the Kingdom lot, I'm glad I picked them up because this Ravage will be the centrepiece of my Beast Wars shelf! Is it completely accurate, no, is it cool, hell yeah! Ravage showing up in Beast Wars was one of my favourite arcs of the show.

    I just really hope he's not too much of a PITA to get a hold of.

    It's really cool how accurate to the show model they got this figure to look while still having a transformation.

    I'm still on the fence on whether or not I'm gonna pick up the Preds from Kingdom but if I do this guy would be a must!

    It never ceases to amaze me how some folks think their country = the world.

    By the way - and before people think that I love stories of people that failed to educated themselves in life - that’s sarcasm. ;)

    I think that’s really one of the most impressive parts. Cheetor was always designed to transform into a cheetah, but giving him a convincing cheetah mode meant sacrificing a lot of show-accuracy in bot mode. Yet here is Ravage, who was never intended to have a beast mode on the show, managing to turn from a pretty solid organic panther mode into a very good likeness of his character model. Those crazy sons of bitches actually did it and I’m loving it.

    I hope Pulse makes it way to more countries so more people can get their hands on figures. I'm in the states and have issues getting my hands on some figures so it must be next level infuriating for someone who can't even find a retailer online or local to buy an exclusive from.
