    I'm thinking about getting these figures to complete my BW Predacons line. With TM2 Dragon Megatron, TM Meg and Alligator Megatron obtained, and also Dinobot-II ordered.. Then, may I ask for short reviews regarding these figures?

    # Transmetal Terrorsaur
    # Transmetal Tarantulas
    # Fuzor Quickstrike
    # Inferno OR Scavenger, which one's better?
    # Waspinator OR Transmetal Waspinator, also, which one's better?

    Thanks in advance, guys. :)  :D 




    Regards,
    Caine.

    All of the figures you mentioned are great, but simple must-haves are TM Tarantulas, Quickstrike, Inferno and ordinary Waspinator.

    I've gotta dissent a bit on Inferno...he's a cool figure, but the beast mode is very meh and the hips on mine would never lock together well for Robot Mode.

    I have all those tfs, but japanese versions only. Anyway, you should really try and get all of them, but if you just want some advice, I would go for:
    TM Tarantulas, Inferno and Waspinator.

    quickstrike you can get super cheap even still on the card. TM Tarantulus is awesome as well as Inferno. I prefer the 10th anniversary Wasp over original, just has a little more detail and a colored head versus the grey one. Thought I enjoy Scavenger too, I really only colect CONS so they are all good in my book!

    Yep. TM Tarantulas & 10th Anniv Waspinator are on my list for next month. But still unsure about the others mentioned earlier. Anyway, any comments on Tripredacus Council?

    I dont like TM Terrorsaur, owned one and simply got rid of him. Tarantulas in the other hand is just cool.

    tripredacus council? As in figures? All there are is the walmart exclusive tripredacus agent who is a repaint of transmetal 3 cheetor and Japanese x-9 ravage who usually starts around $150. That's all I can think of, if that's what you meant.

    Yup. If you had to get any four, go for those, but I would suggest getting the recent Takara reissue Waspinator or Hasbro reissue, both are improvements on the deco IMO.

    I'd skip Transmetal Terrorsaur simply because in the show he never made it to the Transmetal stage. Transmetal Tarantulas, Quickstrike, Inferno, and Waspinator are all great toys.

    I'd also skip on Scavenger and TM Waspinator... again simply because they weren't actually in the show like that.

    my opinion:

    # Transmetal Terrorsaur - don't know. can't help you.
    # Transmetal Tarantulas - if you value your life, you will get him.
    # Fuzor Quickstrike - to be able to own one is beautiful, to be able to own two is ecstasy.
    # Inferno OR Scavenger, which one's better? - Inferno just for sheer entertainment - plop him next to megs and make him give the salute. glorious entertainment. shrugs shoulders at Scavenger, although, just by the looks of him, I'd give my left testicle to own one.
    # Waspinator OR Transmetal Waspinator, also, which one's better? - well, 10th anniversay Waspy is fantastic, but I'm a HUGE Waspinator fan so I'm a bit biased. Haven't gotten my hands on a TM Wasps though, so don't know for sure.

    but as far as I'm concerned, I'm gonna go Pokemon on your ass and say - GOTTA COLLECT 'EM ALL!

    Transmetal Terrorsaur - the toy is sweet indeed. TBH, it's actually got a resemblance to Swoop somewhat.
    TM Tarantulas - GET HIM. AWESOME FIGURE. KEKEKEKEKAH!!!!
    Quickstrike - Got one a couple months ago, sweet. Only complaint is the non-painted eyes.
    Inferno - He's Inferno. 'Nuff said. Though I'm still peeved that I lost a missile on the convention floor after I bought him.
    Waspinator - 10th Anniversary Waspinator is awesome. I've seen TM Waspy and he's good too, but I love the classic one.

    For the record I have a certain love for TM Terrorsaur, I dont know there's just something about that toy that's just so fun. Out of that list the only one I would deem as crap is TM2 Scavenger, other then that the rest you listed are great toys and must buys for any BW fans.

    TM Tarantulas is a necessity. TM Waspinator is a fun figure, because it takes our favorite pathetic character and make him look extremely badass (and shiny!). Scavenger isn't a bad figure at all, but is visually different enough from Inferno that he's too far distanced from the show character (whereas at least TM Waspy has the same general appearance). Terrorsaur is okay, and has some pretty nice looking jetmodes. Plus, you can make his chest bite people, which is always good for entertainment.

    They're all pretty good, really. The standout requirements would definitely be TM Tarantulas and at least one of the Waspinators.
