G1 inspired Ravage


hi guys
well with optimus finished last year, and my batman arkham figure complete, it was now time to get my teeth into my next project, its still very early stages, but this has been in the works since mid jan, i plan to build a G1 inspired Ravage, that will transform!!
He'll be about the size of a meduim dog once transformed, and being as this is being bought up to date, and cassettes are no longer an option, he will transform to a briefcase, Ive always loved the fact the decepticons love to work with the humans, were as the autobots make friends with humans,the deceptions love to use humans to their advantage,so with this in mind, and after a lot of research, i went for the briefcase. As i can image a human, walking into a research lab, and placing the brief case down in the shadows, allowing ravage to transform and do what he does best, stealth and spying.
enclosed in the pics is the small g1 cassette that ive worked from, im also adding more movement, in the neck, and the legs,also (me being me) im making the mouth open and shut too, ive looked at pics of real panthers and the ligiments,and how the legs bend, so im hoping to replicate this in my build, anyway heres the pics, like i said, its still early stages, ive got car filler on order and more parts to build, but wanted to show you all now, where im at in this build.
all the best
colin

Re: G1 inspired Ravage


Outstanding!! Ravage was one of my favorites as a kid. I will be watching this thread!

Very ingenious to turn him into a briefcase as well, easy for carrying!

One thing I thought might be cool. Get a cheap voice recorder / MP3 player to amplified speaker, and have a button or one of his ears attached to the button. The mouth could house the speaker / amp. When the ear is touched / depressed, it could play a variety of sounds, like his metallic "Grrrrr!" or the transforming sound! emoticon

Just found these great pics on Flickr.

Another idea: Make the side missiles from PVC or ABS pipe, and put the speakers inside! Perfect sound resonators if you cut slots just behind the cone / tips!

It would also be great if you put LED's in his eyes so they light up. emoticon

Re: G1 inspired Ravage


hi guys

well managed to get loads more done today, front legs, tail section and finish the jaw, im going to build this all first in wood, make sure eveything opens and shuts etc before i tidy up everything with car filler and styrene.
the tail section picture ive shown with a bit of wire, what i intend to do with this, is use the stalk from one of those bendy lamps, that way the tail can be put into different poses etc, then rolled up and tucked into the tail area,
Also bought a pack of metal bq skewers,i will cut of the tips,these will form ravages smaller teeth, and wind chime metal will be made into ravages bigger teeth.
heres the pics guys
all the best
