    I personally like all the BM figures.

    I know about 99% of them have almost no likeness to their TV counterparts, but if you just look at them as cool toys, you'll like them.

    Deluxe class Jetstorm is still a favorite of mine.

    The only ones I have are the Jet Drone and Thrust. The Jet Drone is really cool and would go well with your Jetstorm toy. They are both the same mold.

    More like teenagers who think they are "grown up." It's a really sophomoric effort.

    That being said, the Tank Drone, Motorcycle Drone, and Rattrap are all pretty excellent. I also have a soft spot for Mirage.

    My favorite toy from the line is Ultra Jetstorm. Very stylish and large in both modes.

    The BM line is fairly weak, but some of the figures I'd recommend:

    - Deluxe Jetstorm
    - Basic Tank Drone
    - Basic Mirage and Basic Scavenger - Only because there's a way to make a BM "Overkill" unofficial combination with them.
    - Air Attack Optimus Primal (technically an RiD toy, but meant for BM)
    - Skydive
    - Blackarachnia

    Nah, now you're thinking of those "[adult swim]" shows ;) 

    As for the toys, I liked all the Vehicons... but the Maximals were kinda sucky.

    Overall probably my least favorite toyline (but I did love the show =] )

    Air Attack Optimus Primal is non-negotiable. Get him now.

    I recommend most Vehicon toys, with the possible exceptions of Thrust (Cycle Drone's good though) and Megatron (Dragon / Soda Can). Favorites for me are both Jetstorm toys, Tank and Cycle drones, Obsidian, Strika, and the "Head" Megatron which showed up as an RiD exclusive.

    As for Maximals, I recommend Blackarachnia, Snarl, Night Slash Cheetor, Night Viper, Blast Punch Primal, and Primal Prime (if you like the Optimal Optimus mold). Air Attack Primal is good too, though I'm not much of a fan of big toys for not-that-large characters.

    Hahaha nice. I'd like to second Blackarachnia. That's a pretty decent one actually.

    I think everyone should own a BM Silverbolt, so that next time a toy doesn't meet their expectations, they can look at it and go, "You know, perhaps things aren't quite so bad."

    I really enjoyed the Beast Machines series and have 1 of each of the toys. Some like Silverbolt, Soda Can Megatron, etc were not that great. But, for the most part, if you look at them as just Transformer toys, most of the line was pretty good. I recommend them all.

    Hated this line in retrospect.

    But, good ones: Vehicons. Especially Mirage, Scavenger, Spy Streak, tank drone, Obsidian, Blast Charge, Tankor and Strika

    Maximals: BlastPunch Primal, BA, NS Cheetor.

    Battle Unicorn is great little toy.
    Mirage still stands as my favourite basic ever. Not sure why, just love the dude.
    Jetstorm Deluxe, Cycle Drone, Tankor, Night Viper, Blackarachnia, Air Attack Optimus Primal, Primal Prime, Scavenger are all pretty nifty too.
