    Well we could assume they are following the japanese g1 continuity where they never died.

    Though this does have its inaccuracies.

    Mentioned this over in the BW appreciation thread but yesterday the TFCC added this to their front page:

    https://www.transformersclub.com/prose/Beast-Wars-Uprising-Micro-Aggressions-V1.01.pdf

    Story is alright but the illustrations (added below) are what caught my eye. Looks like BW Grimlock out of Springer, BWII Galvatron out of BH Optimus Prime, and Hot Rod from either CW Dead End or CW Blackjack.

    Could be nothing, and likely is, but it could be a hint towards the souvenirs for Botcon similar to how Megatron showed up in another Botcon promotion without an official reveal.

    Rodimus is actually his Takara exclusive Micromaster toy. The one that came with Star Convoy.

    Looks like they accidentally called Snapper "Spittor" at one point. Both are great little toys so I can understand the mistake. :)

    Hey Botcon is finally next week, and we finally get to see if Megatron will be released. It was that Megatron that was at the end of the ad

    For some reason I like that BWII Galvatron out of BH Prime.

    This takes place in IDW's own Beast Wars continuity.

    The Japanese continuity acknowledges the movie anyway; they still got it two years later than they should've. I think in recent years they've tried retconning why Wheeljack and such appear.
    As Autovolt says though, it doesn't matter since this is in the IDW BW continuity (AKA using Gathering and Ascending as well as the original BW series).

    Does anyone have any suggestions about protecting the bat wings on Ramhorn's head? I'm terrified of transforming him any more than I have and snapping off his hornwings.

    I think Predacus got shipped from those who ordered him online only through TFSS, got my shipping confirmation and should be here tomorrow. I hope that's what it is...
