Next up in our series of galleries on Masterpiece Soundwave and his minions we have the first of the two sets that featured Soundwave’s cassette minions. MP-15 added Rumble (the red one) and Jaguar (aka Ravage) to the Masterpiece lineup. Like Masterpiece Laserbeak they are no bigger in cassette mode than the original Generation 1 cassettes.
Of the two, Ravage stands out like Laserbeak for being a marvel of engineering – the rockets, an accessory on Generation 1 Ravage, are fully integrated here and a clever transformation means that Ravage gets a jaguar mode that is scarily close to how he appeared in the cartoon. I say scary purely because of how tiny he is – definitely one to read the instructions on first!
Rumble meanwhile is equally impressive, less so in engineering (though the fact so much is packed into a small size is cool) but in poseability. Masterpiece Rumble has an insane amount of poseability for a toy around the same size as a Cyberverse toy. The fact he has a full complement of accessories including the iconic piledrivers, and that these can be used in some creative ways by Masterpiece Soundwave is the icing on a very sweet and tasty cake.
