    I was one of the campaign leaders for the POTP vote, I gathered hundreds of votes from my fellow Marines, from college students, friends, family and many others, together we made a difference and our nominee was victorious despite the haters, well im at it again, I'm starting a new movement, one that I don't expect to have results in days, weeks or months, this is a long haul, we wish to bring to the attention of those who matter, our desire for more BW material, figures, stories etc. Use #Beastwars on all Hasbro social media, come together and let us speak as a united people, as one voice, together we can do this, we can make a difference, change the future. I know it sounds crazy but sometimes crazy works.

    Now go forth, Transform and Rise Up! BeastWarsLogo-1-1.jpg

    For fiction, I would honestly settle for like one comic that's about the characters in Beast Wars, and doesn't rub its chin thoughtfully and go, "How many G1 characters can we get in here."

    I'd love any non-G1 updates. I don't necessarily have the nostalgia that you and many others have for Beast Wars, but I'd welcome updates for Megatron, Terrorsaur and Tigerhawk, personally.

    I'd be up for a new Silverbolt and a new Rattrap. They were my favorite BW characters and the only two BW figures I have left.

    No. Need a CHUG Beast Wars toy? Buy an original. Very few of them require updates.

    There are still many G1 characters without modern toys. Beast Wars can take a number.

    Many if not most Beast Wars, and Beast Machines for that matter, figures do in fact need updates, as those that weren’t saddled with articulation limiting action gimmicks were either out of scale or lacked resemblance to their appearance in the show.

    Gonna disagree.
    Voyager Rhinox and Deluxe Waspinator And Rattrap are way the heck better than the originals.

    Yeah, those early are worth updates. Now most transmetals, those were pretty much perfect when released. I mean, how much could they really imprve Depth Charge.

    Will you join the Beast Wars Forever movement? The goal of this movement is to let Hasbro know that we want more Beast Wars centric stories, toys, cartoons, etc. Use #Beastwars on all of Hasbro's social media pages, IG, FB, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube etc. Together we can make this happen, I know it sounds crazy but sometimes crazy works.

    For every Rhinox, Waspinator and Rattrap...there's a Cheetor, Tankor and Sky Byte (I know, it's RiD but it's based on BW TM Cybershark).

    Seriously, even if the figures don't look like the show, they still have a fair amount of articulation and look pretty darn good together with few exceptions.

    G1 still is missing some 1984-86 updates.

    When we still don't have a show accurate Jetstorm come 2030, we can talk then.

    No. They’ve taken a step back from the original bw releases toy design wise. I also don’t want them marring a terrific series of the show with today’s story telling standards. Though they did that right out of the gate with beast machines.

    I'll take an updated terrorsaur, BA,or tarantulous any day over getting those last few d-listers from 86 or silly re-does for some gimmick.

    FWIW I'd be perfectly happy to get entirely new designs like Animated Waspinator and Blackarachnia, both of which were great toys. Or hell, new beast characters altogether. Most of the "come on, how about some Beast Wars updates" impulse, for me at least, is because the whole friggin generations line is given over to G1 now, and christ, how about something else once in a while.

    Or update the Unicron Trilogy, Animated, RID 2001, hell, how about a good Knock Out or Airachni-- no, wait, I see we're doing like a fifth Optimus Prime in two years, right then.

    I don’t want a comic that is clearly just a G1 type story with Beast Wars characters randomly sprinkled in on Cybertron or some other planet.

    Go full-on BW or go home. :cool:

    When do people will realize that Hasbro won't make every G1 character?, even if so, it will be different to the previous line in gimmick and aesthetic.

    The Transformers 1984, RID, Armada, Energon, Cybertron, Animated, Prime, Rescue Bots, RID2015, Cyberverse, G1 has had MANY retellings but Beast Wars in the USA had only 1 story (BW,BM) (ll & Neo in JP) and even though they only had 1 go, it's one of the most popular TF series to this day, it's long past time for something Beast Wars related, a story about the Maximals and Predacons, perhaps an alternate time line story after BW Season 3, with time travel and the multiverse, the possibilities are endless.
