Very cool looking MP, but will be passing on it.

Me thinks MP Beast Wars Ravage will/would be a retool of the MP Transmetal Cheetor toy, not the original.

^Oh that's right, he showed up late in season 2. I always think of him as season one for some stupid reason. So many continuities and episodes to keep straight.

Looks great, only thing I'm disappointed with is the lead time; August is a bit rough for a repaint

Sooort of... This toy was made available as an online exclusive via HasbroCollectors.com. At first it was sold as Shadow Panther and retained his original persona which is not Ravage. They even posted an English translation of the tech specs which was the translation that I wrote back in 1997! A couple of months later Hasbro wanted to rename the toy Ravage, but they'd lost the trademark at the time so they called it Tripredacus Agent, but the English bio remained unchanged.

So... if you bought the toy from HasbroCollectors.com, and if it was later on after they'd changed the online name to "Tripredacus Agent," and if you accept that the name change is meant to be Ravage (despite the lack of change to the bio)... then I guess it might count as Ravage to you.

I think it's easier to just say that it's NOT Ravage.
Transmetal 2 Tripredacus Agent is definitely Ravage though, and as Paulbot said, the retool of Transmetal Cheetor makes more sense as an MP BW Ravage. Especially given that even the TV show CG model for Ravage was a modification of TM Cheetor's CG model!

I'd get this with a ravage head and twin pistols. Surely a 3rd party got this covered
