    Hi guys, what would you say is the best Beast Era toy? This includes anything from Beast Wars, Beast Wars II and Neo, Beast Machines, any Universe/Animated character with an animal mode. (If this list needs to be expanded, let me know)

    Not one, but a few favorites over a wide array of time:

    Fuzor Silverbolt
    TM Rampage
    TM Tarantulas
    TM Megatron (when not crumbling to dust :)  )
    TM Optimal Optimus
    TM2 Spittor
    TM2 Stinkbomb
    TM2 Tigerhawk (better yet, Universe1 Razorclaw)
    BM Blackarachnia
    BM Blast Punch Primal
    BW10th Waspinator
    BW10th Megatron (Cybertron mold)
    BW10th Optimus Primal/Convoy (Takara Robotmasters mold)
    Henkei Dinobot

    Left out the Vehicons, as this seems a more beast-based deal.

    Out of the few I've owned, I'd have to say TM Optimal Optimus. I really regret giving it up years back.

    The highest quality beast figure I own is Universe Dinobot, but my favorite is Beast Wars Cybershark.

    Tough, as those toys were my favorite as a kid. Sadly, I don't have them anymore.

    But I think I had the most fun with the original gorilla Optimus Primal. He had blades, missiles, a mace - just plain badass.

    I also really liked Transmetal Optimus, Depth Charge, Rhinox (simply because his chainguns were awesome), and Wolfang. That's off the top of my head.

    Rhinox didn't have chainguns. He had a spinning melee weapon that was the basis for his chainguns, though.


    I really can't say who's best, there's so many great ones. But the original T-rex Megs was my favourite for the longest time.

    Nice answers. As a kid, I didn't own the big guns, but my favorite was Silverbolt. Somehow I lost him (may want to find another) and my other favorite is Inferno (my first and only Mega/Voyager until Revenge of the Fallen's Optimus Prime!). SOMEHOW I lost that too...and then my favorite was Fox Kid's Rhinox...until last year when I bought Beast Machines Megatron.

    Keep the responses coming guys!

    I got alot of the Maximal and Predacons and the later beast TF's from other series.

    But to me the best ones are the smaller ones. Had alot of fun as a kid with BW Spittor and then later the TM2 version, BW Razorclaw, BW Snarl, and then later on BM Buzzsaw and Hammerstrike.

    But some of the Deluxes were fun too. Like BW Silverbolt, Jawbreaker, Bonecrusher, and TM Rattrap.

    Both Depthcharge & Rampage are definitely at the top of this list. IMO They're 2 of the best triplechangers ever made. :)

    I always thoroughly enjoyed the original ultra optimus primal. Also the original dinobot and cheetor were favorites.

    Always like most of the basic line, especially the first series. The flipchange wa a lot of fun and the toys were just the right size to play with. Rattrap, Razorbeast, Terrorsaur and Insecticon were my favourites followed by Clawjaw who was superseded by TM Clawjaw. Quickstrike and much later BM Buzzsaw had to be added to the list.

    The winners because of there colours though are Factyl and Packrat.

    Special mention to Tako Tank.

    TM Tarantulas. Was everything you wanted from a toy - screen accuracy, interesting transformation, good lay value in all modes.
