    Would you like to see Beast Wars/Beast Machine toys in the Generations line or in a future line?
    Not repainted ones, like whole new molds?

    Because personality, I think we are over due for them.

    Considering how Dinobot and Cheetor pegwarmed so much (heck, last time I looked Dinobot was still in stock at HTS) and the fact that Hasbro seems to say they're not currently interested in beasts, I doubt it unless there's homage characters in TF Prime, it'll be all vehicles.

    I think our best hope would be some Transmetal updates. Perhaps "real" beasts just aren't as appealing as robotic ones.

    If it means I get more Cheetor and Rattrap, then that's fine by me.

    Same here, a Transmetal Megatron updated figure would make my year. Plus a correct TM Rattrap would be great as well.

    Or Vehicons that actually look like their on-screen counterparts.

    I would readily support more Beast Wars and Beast Machines content being put into the Generations line.

    I look at a guy like Voyager Long Haul though, and I KNOW they could engineer one hell of a Tankor if they set themselves to it.

    I would love a Generations Deluxe Optimus Primal and Megatron from Beast Wars with updated engineering.

    This a thousand times!

    I think they could also experiment with making them less organic and more robotic (sort of like animated Blackar animal alt-modend Waspinator), but still retain the animal altmode. But of course that's up to personal preference. I think that, plus modern toy engineering could make them way more accurate and less kibbletastic.

    I would prefer "beasts" in the sense of Predacons, Terrorcons, and some freakin' Dinobots.

    I'd love to see more TM figures, however, I don't feel like it's in the cards. What we could potentially see is more Transtech figures ala TFCC Cheetor coming out. Although that's almost as bad as releasing 19 different colored Bumblebees.

    But wouldnt BW Dinobot beating G1 characters for the 5th Hall of Fame spot tell something to Hasbro? Not every G1 fan buys a MP figure, but Hasbro still makes them for that fan base. I dont see why BW fans cant get the same treatment with BW/BM figures in the Generations line. I dont see what makes us do different then the G1 fans that Hasbro seems to focus on alot.
