    Would it be a silly guess if I said that Thundertron looked like his beast mode is a JP inspired Spinosaurus. Correct?

    Prime, I'm thinking either a Lion or a wolf type animal.

    Yeah, looking at Thundertron, the Spiny sounds good... I had been figuring one of the larger raptors or an allosaur, based on the head design... the ridges along the head don't bring to mind the JP spinosaurus, though.

    Prime, though... hmmm. Duh. Saber Prime. Smilodon, also known as a sabre-tooth tiger.

    Thundertron's the same as the Pred in your avatar, right? If so, I would have never guessed that those fangs were part of an actual mouth. Thought they were just part of his facemask!

    Yeah, you guys called 'em:
    Thundertron is a Spinosaurus (very JP3-esque) and Saber Prime is a Smilodon/saber-toothed cat.
    Thundertron is a "secret weapon" of sorts, and Saber Prime is kind of a Maximal version of Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell :D

    Yes, I got it! (Bit of an unfair advantage that I had a JP3 Spino next me on the desk)

    YES. I got the Papo Spinosaurus figure on my shelf.
    Tyrannosaurs are the GODS of dinosaurs, but Spinosaurs are close seconds :D 

    I picked a Spinosaurus because it's sort of the demon-god-thing of Dinosaurs. Tyrannosaurus (Megatron) may be the Tyrant Lizard King, but Spinosaurus is...I dunno, like Galvatron to G1 Megs?....Does that make sense? Like a step up, but not as simplistically cool?

    You know what? That works, that really works. I also like the concept behind her.

    Thanks. The ONLY way a female Prime can exist is as a cool-headed badass cyborg hottie :D

    Actually, I am :) 

    I'm working on the Beast Wars profile books. That Injector/Ratorata sample pic (as well as Saberback and Tarantulas) that were posted a while back were mine :D

    Can we be expecting to see Thundertron and Saber Prime popping up in any future comics? Even just as background fillers?

    I haven't begged Ryall for that yet :)  But I'm half-considering pitching the idea for the story to him (it's intended to be a proper sequel to Beast Wars, BW II, BW Neo, Gathering/Ascending, AND it integrates Beast Machines, but not in the way you'd think :D )

    The story focus is on Saber and her personal team, and there's a lot of familiar faces from G1 and beyond. If it ever gets made...it'll be AWESOME.
