    That's pretty cool. For some odd reason, Cyclonus was the first thing that I thought of when i saw the picture of his alt-mode, lol.

    Interesting. Good to have some sort of story with him anyway. Beta Maxx certainly fits beter than "Guy hanging off Alpha Trion's arm."

    Thanks. Glad the Bot-with-no-name has one. Although I thought his name would just end up being 'The Nameless One.'

    Ha! KNEW his name would start with "Beta". Though I thought it would Beta Duon, honestly... Nice to see a real name for him, now!

    Cool. Makes me want to rename one of my Vector Prime minicons S-VHS. :) 

    And hey, look..... ANOTHER reference to Shockwave in a character's bio! They've been cropping up all over lately. I hope that means an updated Shockwave figure is somewhere in the not-too-distant future.

    Hell, we don't even know what continuity A3 and BM are from, yet... But the Shockwave reference makes me hope there's some kind of Shockwave character (TOY!) coming up in club exclusive related stuffs.

    We could be getting 2 new Shockwave figures in the next couple of years. First one in Animated, which, by the looks of the characters in it, he'll be a really nice G1 homage. The other one, if it does come out, will be in the Universe (Classics 2.0) line. Though we aren't really sure how many characters will be included in this line other than the 8 Deluxes and 3-4 Ultras that they are currently planning for the fall of next year.

    If you say so. It's just as cool as... Oh I dunno... Mini-Disc, Watch-Man, or the super deluxe Blu-Ray.

    Wasn't Beta Maxx killed by the Decepticon Vee Aechess?

    Lol, love the reference and it fits his name quite well. :)  Better than A3, which is just short for Alpha Trion. I wonder what his story's all about? To me, BMaxx and A3 belong to Classics.

    I would have guessed his name would be "Ki" or "Key"

    Besides he was replaced by VHS

    (whaddaya MEAN that joke's been used? :horse: )
