I'm going with Beast Ravage, for nearly all of the already stated reasons. Battle Raveage was just Tracks with a paint job and face lift. It was an alright figure, until beast Ravage that is.....

I own Battle Ravage, and quite like the figure.
Although Argos are meant to have the new Ravage, they haven't had any stock of him in anywhere near me, although I plan to but him when they do. I think the new mould looks great and it's good to see the homage to his G1 self.
I hope takra announce they'll be releasing him too, before I find one as I'd prefer to get the takara version. Mainly because he'll be Jaguar (Japanese name for Ravage), who turns from a Jaguar (car) into a Jaguar (cat). That appeals to my sense of humour, so I'd probably buy him even if I didn't like the mould very much.
When I do own both of them I'm not sure what to do with Battle Ravage. The two options I'm considering is making him look a bit more like BW Ravage, or making him into the Japanese Brestforce character Jaruga.

I have to be one of the minority who prefer BT-11 Ravage to the Alternator Beast.

Like AK I saw the Egyptian connection and thought that had the BT line continued, there could have been a possibility of a Buzzsaw/Laserbeak in a similar vein. You can also make BT-11 sit on 'all fours' - which is why his head can be posed upwards.

I don't own Alt Ravage, but he just looks like an after thought.

I'm probably in an even smaller minority by thinking that the Corvette is one of the nice BTs. Out of all the BTs, the Corvette is the only one which has a direct history back to the Stingray. The articulation of the figure is at least equal to that of the Vipers too.

Aha! *scratches head*

Wasn't the original Hound based on a Japanese jeep rather than a US one?

*Shrugs*

That's the only way I can defend my Corvette comment :P
