This sucker cannot come out in the US quickly enough! He looks awesome, and his minions look fantastic, too.

Wish I could avoid buying Buzzsaw, though. I want Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage and Laserbeak, but Buzzsaw is one of those characters who barely existed. Oh, well. His colors look good, at least. They're getting the most out of the mold. Can't say I blame 'em. At least we're getting Ravage, even though he can't really be repainted.

Ravage can totally be repainted. first off there's Howlback, an e-hobby exclusive with Garboil. Next there's Stripes that came with the encore Twincast. You could also do Glit that was in that 3 pack with Sundor and Rosanna. Finally SG Ravage. That molds has more repaints than the Rumble mold!

I stand corrected. :lol:

Actually, I would probably prefer SG Ravage to Buzzsaw...

Actually, when one consults the official scale guide from the G1 cartoon, they are exactly as show-accurately sized as they're supposed to be, with Rumble/Frenzy reaching Soundwave's knee panels, the birds being bigger than his shoulders, and Ravage being just a bit bigger than the birds. ;)

Rated X wrote:Im would like too see how the cassettes fit in with classics. Are they scout sized ???
Hard to tell, but my best guess would be that this Ravage it about the same size as the Ravage that came with Universe Hound.

Though. if want these to fit with the Classics figures, you'd be better off wishing they were smaller since MP Soundwave is about the size of a Leader and all the guys who were Soundwave's height in the Classics-style toylines are Voyagers. And the near-Voyager-sized MP Sideswipe and Red Alert are mere Deluxes in their Classic-style toys. So, when comapre to the Masterpiece toys, everything is scaled down in Classics.

Though, the Ravage/Hound ordeal fit since Hound was a small guy (not as big as the other Autobot Cars, but bigger than the Mini-Cars).

Poor old Buzzsaw no love.

Strange i've always liked the outcast characters like Buzzsaw and Reflector.

Fingers crossed the next MP will be Reflector or Shockwave (w/Ratbat)

I can't wait for this guy's release! He and his kids are going to look nice along with Optimus Prime (MP-10, of course), the Seekers, Grimlock, Sideswipe and Red Alert! =P~

Although for a US release, Hasbro would make him have a yellow visor (common on all of his G1 reissues, by both TT and Hasbro), a lighter blue and possibly omit either Frenzy or Rumble (and possibly swap their names as well), Buzzsaw (even though he was included in the US release of SW) and price them between the TC price and the OP price. Either way, whichever one is much more superior, hold on for Hasbro's release. ;)

Meh, think I'll punt on this one. It looks too much like the original G1 version and exhibits no novel creativity. The addition of the minions is a cool concept, but it's been done before. I think giving them all new bodies and transformations would spice up interest and bring in more business. At it's current state, given the price, it's not worth the commitment in my humble opinion. Why can't it be a Masterpiece sized version of Soundwave in an alternate mode that resembles a satelitte? That was fresh and drove the market in a new direction! :HEADHURTS:
