    This is probably an old topic but I was wondering why the Beast Wars figures had the two different faces and helmets? It just added an extra step to transforming them and I don't remember it ever being explained.

    They are "Mutant Masks." I guess they are for battle or something.

    It was a sort of "transitional state" between the beast and robot modes. I'd imagine they would have had a story function within the original setting of Beast Wars, when it was still meant to be a direct continuation of G1/G2. But when the direction got changed, the idea was dropped. Aside from getting them used as the show faces for Tarantulas, Waspinator and Scorponok. I don't remember exactly - the Mutant Heads didn't go past about the third wave, did they?

    They didn't go past the third waves, just on the ones you listed and Megatron, Rhinox, and Dinobot. Plus and 10th annivesary ones. I think that's it.

    Well, K9 retained the Mutant Mask, but he was a remold of Wolfang, so it doesn't exactly count.

    But, yeah. The first two assortments of Deluxes, Polar Claw, Scorponok, Optimus and Megatron, and any recolors/remolds. Kind of hard to imagine Waspinator with the toy's really generic robot head, isn't it?
