    I recently picked up the Beast Wars Returns Silverbolt, who I personally think is awesome, and will go nicely with my McD's BM figures, the US Obisidan, Nightslash Cheetor, Strika, and BWR Megabolt Megatron. However, does anyone know a site that show images of ALL of the BWR figures, how many they did, what molds they used, etc?

    BWTF.com has a few reviews, but he doesn't seem to have everyone listed, nor does he have pics besides Obsidian, Silverbolt, Noble, and Black Arachnia.

    Ewwwwwwwwwwww, they used the ugly molds for Cheetor and Jetstorm (well, not than any Jetstorm mold was good). They should have just picked Nightslash Cheetor and made him look like the show. Black Arachnia is another one that needs retooling more than just a color scheme. However, I think Obsidian, Strika, Silvebolt, and Megabolt Megatron look awesome.

    Me too. Oh, same goes for Megatron. However, I wonder if they made Blast Punch Primal show accurate.

    I think the only majorly changed color scheme was on Silverbolt. He was painted exactly like he looked instead of the crappy paintscheme we got. Not that it was a a spectacular toy to begin with.

    I got him yesterday, and I think he is a great figure. He could be better, especially since he should have been a Deluxe, but for what they did, he is great. At least, It hink so. Then again, I've heard nothing but bad reviews on him, so when I actually got him (which was my first time physically seeing him) yesterday (the BWR one that is), he was not as bad as everyone made him sound.

    I really loved these repaints! I got all the Vehicons but Strika (she will be on my hands eventually too). I also woudl ahve liked to see a nice repaint of Blast Punch OP like in the show, the mold is simple but cool. Another request would have been using the Deluxe Jetstorm mold intead of Ultra in a nice re-deco and maybe a bigger vertion of Tankor/Tank Drone.

    Another nice add, the un-confirmed Optimal Optimus with MEgatron face.

    CrockAlley you may try amenbo.com or bigbadtoystore.com to get these figures. They still have some of them.

    Bigbad is where I got Silverbolt from. Sadly, they sold Obsidian the day before I went to buy him.

    Does anyone know why the hell Nightscream got an Ultra figure, yet Silverbolt was a Basic?

    Never been able to figue that out. There's a knockoff deluxe-size Nightscream I've been keeping an eye out for. That figure might have actually been tolerable at that size.

    I imported this whole line, but the only ones significantly different enough from the originals for most collectors to be interested in tracking down are Black Widow, Silverbolt, Tankor, Obsidian, Strika, and Megahead. The others are (for the mosty part) unchanged from their BM counterparts.
