Well, because it still wouldn't have been a half as awesome as this. The briefcase is unique, but clearly evokes that time in Day of the Machines when Megatron showed up in a guitar case.

And you only started on this in February? Well, I can't wait to see what else you've pulled off by the end of the year!


lol!!! well i like to keep busy, will sort out a video of ravage asap, then im thinking ahead for next project, which will either be similar scale to ravage or i might go out and build another big model!!

My only criticism is that the teeth are white, and really long, and attract the eye way more than (I think) they should compared to the rest of this amazing piece. But please understand, I could never do this ever, and so my crit means nothing and it should be tempered and based on whether you are happy with how it turned out or not.

Steeljaw next?


mmmm, i tough long and hard about the teeth, i felt having only 4 teeth,like the cartoon didnt give ravage the fear factor, by adding the extra smaller ones, it gives him a little more bite!!!!
mmm not sure whats next, got some ideas floating around, either way, im sure i'll be busy!! lol!!!
thanks for the comments and support

thank you very much, i often get asked about a full scale sound wave, it would be awesome, but i think a big grimlock would be kind of cool too,

I really like how the briefcase was executed, but I feel like Ravage can't stand. Not that I'm being critical, but can it stand? :???:

hi
he weighs about 30 to 40lb, because the case is aliuminium, its light, but the back panel i made with soundwave on, adds a bit more,

thanks!!! its funny, because ravage and prime are still on display in the shop were we did the charity event, a guy came in and couldnt believe it would fit in the case, so i had to prove him wrong LOL!! he walked away shaking his head, my goal above all was to make ravage, not only transform, but make him so he could be posed like a big cat would, it was certainly a headache at times, but worth the effort in the end!!

thanks, and i dont feel your being critical, ravage can stand upright, but to be honest, he looks best posing him, most big cats are crouching,stalking etc, they dont stand t upright very often, but yes ravage does stand upright, flick through my build process your see the pics
