Beast Wars 25 Tournament, Match 8 - Round 1, Match 8: Grimlock vs Ravage

After seven matches in this opening round - you can see links to the results of Matches 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 - this is the last match in Round 1 of the BW 25 Dream Combat Tournament. As with previous matches, the poll for this match lasts for three days, and short profiles for each combatant have been provided.
In selecting the winner, decide which one is more likely to force their opponent into submission or surrender, or a knockout for at least a 10-second period. Outright destruction is not necessary, though possible.
The winner of this match will advance to Round 2 (beginning this Sunday, February 7) to face Rhinox. If a draw is reached in this poll, both combatants will be eliminated from the Tournament.


Match 8: Grimlock vs. Ravage

Grimlock (Maximal) - Autobot legend from the past, reformatted for the future. Still highly powerful, brave, and merciless, but has sacrificed a degree of strength for a major boost in speed and dexterity. Armed with an energo-epee and a rotary blade-shield as robot; transforms into a velociraptor with strong, sharp teeth and claws, and enhanced visual and olfactory senses. Fighting instincts as great as ever, but may forget to adapt to the limitations of his new, smaller body.

Ravage (Predacon) - Covert Agent for the Tripredacus Council; the rebuilt form of the original Decepticon saboteur. Dedicated soldier with countless years’ worth of experience and historical knowledge. Armed with twin blaster rifles with laser sights; has an electromagnetic emission shield that hides appearance from detection. Transforms into a cassette, but rumored to still retain his old jaguar mode from the past. Intimidating due to reputation, but physical durability is only above average; also sensitive to bright light, and can be blinded.


This poll concludes this Saturday night (about 9:30pm ET). Watch for Round 2's first match to begin next Sunday afternoon!

Re: Beast Wars 25 Tournament, Match 8 - Round 1, Match 8: Grimlock vs Ravage

This is a toughy.
Normally Ravage is awesome and his bio just ups that. But I can't stand how the show made him a Russian circus bear.

Grimlock's bio is cool and 1 of few who's toy US-ly stated he's the same character from G1.
Of course if he had been on the show, like Ravage, how would they have ruined him?

Wouldn't put it past the BW producers to view a G1 episode about him and base his voice and personality on that, out of contextly.
Especially if it were 'Grimlock's New Brain' !

Re: Beast Wars 25 Tournament, Match 8 - Round 1, Match 8: Grimlock vs Ravage

Just got the Botcon Ravage recently, even if the fig sucks, the alt mode is hot as hell

But more on topic, since this a BW tourney, I'll give it to Ravage - a cool representation of him, w/ laser sight spy guns, a cool accent
Even if he was a bit underused in the short period we had him

Besides, what's BW Grimlock going to do, crumble to dust in front of you? nyak nyak

I decided to vote Grimlock.
The Russian circus bear was just too much.

I really liked the voice variety there.

Quick Strike as a Southern cowpoke and Ravage as a Russian both worked for me

Just one day left to cast your vote for this battle, before the poll expires tomorrow night and concludes the Tournament's first round.
And this Sunday will be the beginning of Round 2!

Beast Wars had great characters all around. Expecting robot Hannibal Lector to get quite far by the time the dust clears.
