Everything about this figure has simply amazed me. The production value in the tape case & instructions, the ridiculously awesome amount of die-cast are all incredible! This is the tape-former I always wanted as a kid!

This splendid Ravage is really wonderful !
The first thing you feel in hand, it's the weight. The beast is heavy. The transformation is intricate, but the cat... Is really impressive !
MMC Rocks and rule !!!

Very happy with the quality of this product.
The dir cast parts give it a nice, weighty feel.
All the joints are good and tight.
Cassette mode is kind of weak but let's be honest, you're not going to keep him in that mode.
The only flaw I have found is that the two halves of the chest bit don't tab or lock together which can leave a gap when you are trying to pose the legs and the body twists.
Knit picking. I know.
Love this bot. Well worth the money.

A fun, intuitive transformation. The first 3P figure I've felt safe transforming without instructions in quite a while. Looks great in cat mode and the articulation and scale make it far more imposing and expressive than the MP version. Bring on Rumble and Frenzy! Also the packaging is genius :)

Perfect addition to my collection and leaps and bounds better than the original Ravage.

For those yearning for a 1:1 cassette tape scale homage to Ravage, look no further.
Excellent design with brilliant execution on manufacturing.

Over all this figure is great and matches up perfectly with Master Piece Soundwave. It moves and poses well with lots of great joints save for the side to side on the neck. But that is to be expected from the transformation. And on that the transformation is spot on brilliant.
All in all this figure is worth it and a great addition to Soundwave. Now for the rest of the cassettes to be made like this. Would be awesome!

Packaging is diamond, actually made me laugh out loud, in a good way.
Transformation is a bit tricky (thought his legs were on backwards at first), but got there in the end. My one criticism is there's not a whole lot of tabbing going on, which does help some of the posability but he moves around a fair bit when posing.
Without a doubt though, this is THE ultimate Ravage, looks the business and kicks the teeth in of the official MP offering (though I'll always have a soft spot for the G1 original of course). Cannot recommend this highly enough, and hopefully you'll be lucky enough to get one of the diecast versions. + free postage (though I hear this has caused delays for some of our US cousins).
Now really intrigued to see what the other cassettes will look like…

Packaging: As a fellow graphic designer, I absolutely love what OC has done here. Packing RMX-01 Jaguar in an 80’s-era cassette jewel case and printing the transformation instructions in the cover insert was a brilliant idea. Kudos for the added warning sheet regarding the fragile feet tab locks, and the full color bio-card is top quality for its printed clarity.
Sculpture: What a beauty this is. In my opinion, Ravage has never been better represented in plastic, and the die-cast limbs are a nice nod to the quality and greatness of his G1 toy self. RMX-01 Jaguar is a hefty and generous mix of plastic and die-cast parts adding some serious weight to him.
The cassette mode is mostly a blank slate with its tape spindles being the only really recognizable feature. If I had a cassette player around still I’d be tempted to see if he fits. When in Jaguar-mode, the most notable aspect here is the perfect facial portrait. With his narrow red eyes, sculpted ears and articulated lower jaw, yeah, that looks like one badly tempered feline. Very nicely detailed technical lines run over the die-cast constructed legs and parts of the neck.
Sure, you’ll never get RMX-01 to fit inside of MP Soundwave, but instead we do get a fierce and accurately scaled companion that looks more like a serious threat to the Autobots, instead of something they can cuddle with.
Paint Application: What paint application? Aside from the ruby-red eyes and mouth, and the white fangs, there is no paint on this figure. Question is, is a paint application really necessary?
It really depends on the owner and their preference of matching RMX-01 to his G1 toy design or his G1 cartoon appearance. If you wanted a G1 toy look, then you’re right be a tad disappointed. The unpainted die-cast legs and shiny chrome missile pods mesh very well and looks fantastic, so there is a little flavor here. On the other hand, now you have a Reprolabels sticker set to look forwards too. I know I am.
But if you’re the type who desires a sleek and stealthy, all-black visage that’s reminiscent of the G1 cartoon, then that is exactly what you’re getting here. Either way, I don’t see how anyone can be disappointed with the design decisions OC made here.
Articulation: The design and look of RMX-01 is sexy as hell already, and now the articulation provided her is just the icing on the cake. Jaguar is coated in a large assortment of swivel, peg, ball-socket and piston joints. The mouth can open and the tail can raise and lower. Together, Jaguar is capable of nearly any large cat-like pose that you can think of.
The highlights found here are is piston-powered neck that allows his head to move side-to-side (albeit not much), and the center body rotation that lets Jaguar sit high up or hunch down low. There’s also flat panels that can act as adjustable shoulder blades, as well as ball-socketed hips, shoulders and paws. In short, Jaguar is far more versatile over his official MP interpretation, and simply far more fun to pose.
Transformation: OC has clearly taken inspiration from the engineering marvel that is Masterpiece Ravage and improved upon it. The instructions say there’s only 14 steps needed that take him from cassette to Jaguar-mode, but since nearly every joint (minus flipping the head and tail out) is repeated, I see this count at being closer to 26 total.
In cassette-mode, I do like how the paws and legs lock together, but the miniscule tabs that slide locks the lower feet in place won’t last very long. In terms of skill level and the few times the rear legs popped off their ball-sockets making me think I was doing something wrong, I’d give Jaguar a 3 out of 5.
Room for Improvement: Not much really. Just like MP Ravage, I like that they figured out how to incorporate the missile pods into the cassette-mode. But I still would have preferred having the cannons detach from the figure; this way we’d probably be treated to more detailed missile pods. The ones he has now are a little underwhelming. However this is such a minor detail and doesn’t detract from my enjoyment of this product. I also wish there was a way to raise Jaguar’s head higher, but how that could be done without over-complicating the piston joints in the neck would be a serious task.
Final Verdict: I don’t believe my MP Ravage is ever going to see the light-of-day again. OC RMX-01 Jaguar will be by his Masterpiece-master, posed and ready to pounce at all times. Do I think he was worth the $50.00 price tag? Absolutely! The only problem is waiting for OC to produce a similar Rumble and Frenzy to match the sheer perfectness of OC RMX-01 Jaguar.

This is the ravage we have been waiting for.
Packaging is ace, love that it's a cassette case. The bot mode is really posable and just looks ace with other map's.
Super happy with this guy.
