This figure was available
individually or with Takara Rhinox (1997) in Japan in 1997.
This figure was available in the US for a limited time directly from Hasbro via HasbroCollectors.com
in 1999. Originally, this toy was sold under it's name "Shadow Panther," but later the listing was changed to "Tripredicus Agent.," thus repurposing the figure as an incarnation of Generation 1 Ravage.
