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.

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.
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:Looks great, but cartoon wise the cassettes are a bit too small.
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.Rated X wrote:Im would like too see how the cassettes fit in with classics. Are they scout sized ???
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).

Strange i've always liked the outcast characters like Buzzsaw and Reflector.
Fingers crossed the next MP will be Reflector or Shockwave (w/Ratbat)

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.
