Fantastic new pictures of Target Exclusive Rampage (Heavy Metal)

We’ve known about the exclusive RHINO w/ Rampage for a long time, and many folks have made the connection between the driver and the old school Heavy Metal, but very few really clear images have come out of the RHINO driver to compare.  Well, that’s all changed.

Werecat, an administrator over on JoeSightings has posted some excellent images of the recently released Rampage figure.  It is astounding how Hasbro can mix and match fairly common parts and come with with such an amazing looking new character.  This figure looks terrific, and looks quite close to the vintage counterpart.  I’m still not going to pay $55.00 for the RHINO, but now I can at least salivate over Werecat’s pictures for a little while.  Check out the images mirrored below.
