    It is kind of ironic that there is a red, blue and purple version of the mold

    Damn I never actually thought of that. There's a green one who plays prominently in fiction as well.

    So I've been thinking of doing a post beast wars/beast machines shelf and was wondering what figures people think of with this kind of setup for characters from bw/bw2/bw neo/bm?

    That's a shame. But let's switch to Option #2: New POTP figures!

    I was just thinking the exact same thing as I was adjusting my collection, and scrolling through pages on this, a few messages up there chatting about repaints like terrorsaur e.g. strafe, fractyl, laserbeak & swoop. Im thinking about getting as many repaints as possible for a new shelf here is some of the ones I came across:
    Armada:
    Transmetal Rhinox
    Transmetal cheetor
    Transmetal airazor
    Transmetal terrorsaur
    Universe:
    Primal
    Silverbolt
    Depthcharge
    Transmetal megatron
    Longhorn aka ramulus
    Frostbite aka jawbreaker
    Razorclaw aka tigerhawk

    There is also a repaint of sling and razorback, several of guiledart, same for the original dinobot, and also a bm white repaint of battle unicorn + many more :)

    I'm thinking more along the lines of characters final forms type of thing, like using night slash cheetor, botcon 2016 megatron, arms micron Leo prime, I know the last body primal was seen in in fiction was his 10th anniversary deluxe, stuff like that

    Sometimes it takes those all-white/all-grey protos to see just how much sculpted detail those moulds really had. It's really impressive.

    Welp, I just got a new addition.

    This Megalligator Custom was made by Cheetimus Primal. It doesn't quite match the tone of green from the head that comes with Legends Convobat but I still really love the colour and amount of details that come with it.

    Plus, I can finally have these two rivals just as it should have been since the beginning. They wear the moulds right, excellent updates.

    I got a bunch of these KO Arms Microns. For now I'm calling them Beastbox & Skwaktalk. I wanted to have the be the minicon partners for some beast bots. But I can't decide who to pair them with. Any suggestions? The bird turns into a gun/crossbow and the gorilla turns into Meg's Fusion Canon

    I'm in Malaysia and there is a TON of transformers stuff here, even shops that only sell TF stuff. However there is a strict lack of Beast bots T_T. My colelctinig isn't going very far yet. I'll probably fill my suitcase anyway, I've seen a load of TT toys I want for a fraction of their cost imported to the UK. Found a shop called Toy Garden that specialises in imported toys from Japan.

    I found this guy. I don't remember him at all. At first I thought it might be Neo or II but the packaging art is working hard to convince me he was part of the BW crew, somehow even montaged in with the series cast. Anyone have any info on him?

    Thanks @tigatron2002. I tfwiki'd Gimlet. Turns out he's the Telemocha version with a DVD from the original bw series. At £25 ish I might pass on him. But definitely a fun looking toy
