    So I\'m not a Beast Wars guy at all, but even I have to say Ravage looks incredible. I seriously might just scoop him up when he drops.

    Yep. But they're not going to make all new molds for a con exclusive and only reuse the beast legs from Cheetor.

    The best I could see is doing Transmetal modes for both Cheetor and Tigatron from it but even then, the figure looks too organic in beast mode so it would need even further remoulding.

    The parts the come from Cheetor are the exact same size as Cheetor's parts, and the parts that aren't from Cheetor are clearly parts made specifically for Ravage.

    It's a super super heavy retool of Cheetor, almost a new mold, but still built around Cheetor.

    They should have taken this another step forward and did a three-pack.. these two plus Kingdom Tracks as Binaltech/Alternators Ravage (who is BW Ravage rebuilt).

    Last year's con exclusive had a heavy Allicon retool, a new Quintesson Prosecutor, and Kranix.

    So is SS86 Hot Rod, but that’s not because of his size. Tigatron may be a Cheetor remold with added accessories to help justify the price point.

    Nah. They specifically moved him from a deluxe to a voyager slot to scale appropriately. They didn’t do it to add a fuzzy mouse toy and ball of string for him to play with.

    Ive been musing that since this went up… I would agree if it wasn’t for Tigatron being huge in the Kingdom trailer (yes, that doesn’t always mean anything (cough Astrotrain cough)

    If I were to rank Ravage with the rest of the BW stuff we've been getting, I'd say he's top 5.
    So far it goes like this:

    1) Optimus Primal (perfect update to the 3D modele, and a fun gorilla mode)
    2) Blackarachnia (mini MP)
    3) Megatron (Dino mode is absolute fun)
    4) Ravage (wonderful retool)
    5) Airazor (a fun figure overall)
    6) Dinobot (robot mode makes up for the rather static raptor mode)
    7) Rattrap (not bad for a $10 dollar figure)
    8) Scorponok (a good modernized Scorponok)
    9) Waspinator (the wasp legs get a bit on the way)
    10) Rhinox (good figure if you missed T30)
    11) Cheetor (good cheetah mode, but robot is lanky, thus far the weakest)

    Watching the amount of retooling that went into Ravage, and seeing him be slightly taller than Cheetor makes me hyped for Terrorsaur even more :D

    Ugh. Solid nope.

    There is just too much on this figure that looks \'off\' to even consider it - even as a hardcore BW Ravage fan - especially if you compare it side by side to (the vastly superior) TransArt BWM-04 Ravage. There just isn\'t anything here to justify it over that figure (the legs alone look so off and the alt-mode looks like he needs to be put down).

    This Ravage is very impressive! It's nice to have a version of this character that isn't ridiculously difficult like X-J9 Ravage is to find

    Yeah, anyone who, after seeing THIS amount of retooling they did, is concerned about turning Airazor into Terrorsaur is out to lunch.

    This isn't a guarantee Terrorsaur is going to be exceptional, but the notion that it can't be is nonsense.

    Yeah this is a big meh from me. Been staring at him for a few minutes now and aside from the head sculpt, I'm just not digging it at all.

    Biggest things that bug me the wee little feetsy for robot mode, the way the beast legs fold up for robot mode, the weird way the elbows are jointed so there's this odd 90 degree gap, and I don't want to think about that beast mode.

    Those that want it have at thee you've got one less collector to worry about.

    price and availability alone justify this over whatever 3P you’re hocking there bud.

    And several leakers have said it's for Pulsecon. Hasbro doesn't seem to be doing SDCC exclusives again this year, but had plans that are going to get released at Pulsecon instead, just like last year
