    It seems likely, given how Hasbro's been cranking out G1, the G2 set and Beast wars. But would anybody buy them, and which ones would you like to see if it were to happen?

    I would get some.

    Especially if they reissue some of the basics/deluxes.

    I'd get Nightslash Cheetor, the Tank Drone and CycleDrone, Strika, Megabolt, and Silverbolt at least.

    Reissues?

    No.

    The last chance you had at Beast Machines toys was in the now defunct Universe line. If you're lucky, perhaps a retool in Classics, but I'd doubt it.

    Also, this is not news! So off to TFGD you go!

    Unlikely. Those lines were probably only reissued because they were successful. BM wasn't as much.

    I don't care for the BM toys anyway, so I'd rather they didn't bother and instead worked on something else.

    I liked Beast Machines more than some, but I don't see reissues or Anniversary toys or anything like that as likely at all. Beast Machines was, from a practical standpoint, the tail-end wind-up for Beast Wars.

    I'd imagine the best we could optimistically hope for is a reappearance of the Air Attack Optimus Primal toy sometime around 2010.

    I don't see it happening either. Maybe a revist to the line with better representations, but not reissues. Of course only time will tell. Hasbro does LOVE to reuse molds anyway they can.

    Coming from someone who loves Beast Wars MORE than G1, Beast Machines was horrible. For the most part it lacked the storyline of Beast Wars but on the positive side it had a great group of characters. To put it bluntly, they would be wise to move on to another series for remolds. But as was stated before, they are all about making money and if they think they can puke them out and sell them, they will.

    With a more show accurare Cheetor on the way in Titaniums, the Japanese versions (with better paint apps) released not too long ago and the molds used in Universe I think the possibility of reissues is slim to none.
    Besides with BM beeing less than popular you can get most of the toys relatively cheap on Ebay anyway..

    I don't expect many more reissues of Beast Machines toys, but I like them, own many of them and hope to own all of them one day.

    I'd be happy if they just reissued Cycle Drone, that elusive bastard.

    I think the best we can hope for is maybe one or two toys for the 10th anniversary if we're lucky, or new toys in Tits (like Cheetor) or maybe the resurrection of Universe.

    I'd buy th e ones i need still, ie Strika, Obsidien, Silverbolt and Savage/noble.

    I actually find the BM toys hard to come by on ebay. Maybe because they don't sell.

    BM toys were a piss-poor line, the show was not all that bad. I see myself avoiding them all if they were reissued. Although I think it would be a good idea if they redid Obsidian to a larger size. Heck Tankor could use some serious retooling as well. But of course something like that will never happen.
