    Now I now this is 4 years early and its probably because I've been watching Beast Wars on Netflix, but does anyone think Hasbro will celebrate 20th anniversary of Beast Wars? And if they do, what do you think they would do?

    here is hoping. I'd like new Deluxe figures of terrorsaur and Rhinox. Maybe a smaller TM2 Black Arachnia.

    A definitive Waspinator. The 10th anniversary one is impossible to find.

    They are out there - I just picked one up at a yard sale last weekend. It's missing a few pieces though.

    I think they'll celebrate it with a lot of nothing. I don't think the 10th Anniversary stuff was all that hot of a seller. Maybe we'll get the TFCC to make us some toys.

    This. Plus a proper Season 1 Blackarachnia, too.

    Honestly, though, even though a lot of the old BW figures are great, I wouldn't mind updated versions of ANY show character. But Rhinox, Blackarachnia and Terrorsaur need it more than anyone else.

    I felt that Hasbro missed the mark with the 10th Anniversary by not releasing Ravage a brighter white Tigatron. Those would have sold very well...and ticked off a lot of collectors who already shelled out a ton for them.

    Yes, watch them reissue BW Robot Hero sets for mass release for the US. Then have new BW Generation figures mass release over Asia.

    A re-release of Transmetal Megatron that won't shatter into a million pieces over here would be nice...

    And how about a Voyager Rhinox with actual chain-guns of doom?

    I hope that hasbro will at least air Beast Wars on the hub if they can. In terms of toys i think they could re-release the transmetal series with some fixes like painted shiny bits that aren't going to chip and a transmetal megs that won't shatter

    I'll take whatever new Beast Wars figures Hasbro throws at us. The world needs more Beast Wars.

    Voyager Rhinox is one I've been after for years. Most of the rest are quite nice and I don't really need updates of them.

    I doubt that Hasbro is going to do much for the 20th anniversary, or many anniversaries other than G1. With so many TF series, every year is practically a significant a

    2012 - 10th anniversary of Armada
    2013 -
    2014 - 10th anniversary of Energon and 30th for G1
    2015 - 15th anniversary of RID and 10th for Cybertron
    2016 - 30th for the Animated movie and 20th for Beast Wars
    2017 - 10th for Animated and Live action movie
    2018 -
    2019 - 10th for Revenge of the fallen, 20th for Beast Machines

    You get the point.

    I'm not really sure about this, but I had the impression that Beast Wars didn't do that well in Japan, ( although yeah, they did make 2 original series and a bunch of Jap exclusive toys for the line), which is why Takara decided to return to more vehicular TFs by launching Car Robots.
