A while back, customizer compute146 created a massive Optimus Prime statue. Back in February of this year, he set out to create a life-size Generation One Ravage. And finally, it is complete! We've seen this beauty carved out of wood, styrene, and then painted to perfection. He even has his own briefcase! Check out compute146's work from the beginning in the Transtopia Forums, and pictures of the finished product below!

Words fail me. It's like, why wasn't some ingenious manufacturer making this instead of My-Size-Barbie and that Transforming Big-Wheel when I was 6? 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!

I love this! Lots of hard work, and you can tell it paid off.

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?

Amazing work!! Extraordinary! One of my favorites Decepticons! Would be awesome a scale Soundwave to carry Ravage in the chest compartiment! :-) :CON:

Thanks for your kind words, i started thinking about ravage in jan of this year, i wanted a smaller project than prime, but one that would challege me too, i actually started late jan, early feb, so the whole process has been about 4 ish months, it was a challenge at times, bringing ravage up to date, but as the decepticons like to use the humans, and cassettes were no longer an option,i thought the case mode worked perfect, i never repeat my work, as a) it becomes boring, and b) it keeps each piece i do, unique,fresh and one off pieces.
all the best

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,

Oh wow, that is amazing! Excellent work! :APPLAUSE: I was not expecting it to transform just from the robot mode image, I was like "nah, it's way too detailed..." and then it fit in a briefcase. :shock: Amazing. 8)

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? :???:
