To me, there are parts of the story of this line missing from public knowledge - several inconsistencies and oddities that surround this line. Don't get me wrong, I'm delighted we got the line from Hasbro at all, but having said that, there are parts of this line that don't quite add up. Allow me to elaborate. For starters - Transmutate. A character that appeared in a single episode, and was as much a mystery at the start of the episode as it was at it's death at the end. But Hasbro decided to make a version of the figure and add in its pieces in the individual 10th Ann. figure line. The first oddity of this build-a-figure is the waist/right leg piece. It's clear that this was originally going to be 2 pieces, and so we can assume that each piece would be sold with a different individual figure, but instead they came glued together, with Rhinox. Did plans change somewhere along the way? Was the figure originally going to be properly articulated to allow more movement? Perhaps released in the Generations line? But thinking better of the idea, Hasbro chopped her up and put her pieces in with individual figures? The end result was 6 pieces, but if the waist and right leg were to originally be separate, that would make 7 pieces - so who would the 7th individual figure have been? The line had a focus on the original incarnations of the characters (besides TM Rattrap, but I'll return to his odd inclusion later) so who would the 7th figure have been? Tigatron and Blackarachnia got newer versions in the Telemocha Takara line, would Hasbro originally have given us another version? It was clear they were focusing on 'deluxe' sized figures, and of the original cast of 14 at the end of Season 1, of the 'deluxe' sized variety only BA and Tigatron remained. Could Hasbro have perhaps looked at giving us a new Inferno or Scorponok? Or perhaps a 3-pack of 'Basic' figures, with Rattrap, Airazor and Terrorsaur? Between the Takara and Hasbro 10th Ann. offerings, these 5 figures were the only ones from the original 14 that remain without an updated version. Were these ideas scrapped and traded for the inclusion of TM Rattrap? True, that TM Rattrap suffers horribly from chrome cancer, so it was a good way to replace a faulty figure, but he stands jarringly out when displayed amid his fellow 10th Ann. figures. We got new versions of Primal and Megs, but they came with Cyber Planet Keys, so they were clearly designed for the 'Cybertron' line, or were made that way 'just in case' the 10th Ann. line failed or didn't go ahead I assume. But odder still, is that these versions came with mini-models of the Axalon and Predacon Ship. The inclusion of these 2 models was very exciting, but supremely puzzling. Were the new version of Primal and Megs not enough to entice people? Or did Hasbro know that the figures (because of their new look) wouldn't be popular so they tried to sweeten the deal? Were there more of these mini-models conceptualised? Why were they created instead of simply putting a Transmutate piece in with Primal and Megs? Another facet of the 10th Ann. was the release of the 'BW Gathering' Comic from IDW. Simple fan service? I think not, as it led to a 2nd series 'Ascending' and 4 Source Books. Did Hasbro underestimate the success of the line? Perhaps, as we later saw Toys'R'Us bring out the VS 2-pack, with Ultra sized Primal and Megs, which had only been released in Japan before then. With other plans shelved, all they could do to catch the tail of the wave of support was import the idea. So what I'm really trying to get at is - I believe the 10th Anniversary concept for Beast Wars was originally much bigger, but Hasbro cautiously only gave us a smaller version of all they had planned. In the end, the line was very successful, despite the woeful colour-schemes Hasbro decked the figures out in. All I can say is: Bring on 2016 for the 20th Anniversary! Or just give us more BW figures in the CHUG Line!
