    I was wondering if they came out with a series of Classics/Universe guys that were new molds of the old Beast Wars characters and they were designed like the Cybertron Primal and Megatron, with the fleshey looking stuff and the tch detail? I thought that would be really kool. I doubt it would ever happen, but we can dream can't we?

    Well, they are releasing Cheetor in Universe/Classics as part of the 25th Aniversarry and they've stated they want to do some other characters. So, I guess you could get pretty close. Though, I'm not sure how techy they'd be as Cheetor was stated to pretty much be dead on for his screen model from BW.

    Botcon.

    I'd be into it. I'd love a new Dinobot, Waspinator and Inferno.

    So the 25th Anniversary are totally new molds? I had heard that about Hot Shot but didn't know that for Cheetor. I thought it was just paint for him. Were there any pics previewed at Botcon?

    Yes, but during the panels - no cameras.

    Are there only like five guys who actually follow ALL the Botcon news? :)

    I'd sell my own organs for a voyager Dinobot, without childbearing hips in beast mode.

    If we weren't at the panel I don't think we get all the info from just looking around. Honestly I only saw news from BOTCON that they had pictures of. I haven't seen anything else.

    I'd sell my organs for a lot of more show accurate and still articulated figures of a lot of guys. Maybe even some BW NEo I'd buy a Snazzy Big Convoy!

    There was a thread on Page 1 of the News forum for ages with all the info picked up from the panels - there were several people there keeping it updated.

    Just because I'm nice, I've done the searching work for you... ;)

    Dinobot's a must but I dont know if they could replicate his robot mode well enough and still make it transform, that'd be a LOT of blue to hide away. And Waspinator would be great but with him appearing in Animated that might not fly, either... and he would need an explosion gimmick, at least arms and head flying off.

    I did. I knew about Cheetor, Hot Shot, Cyclonus, Hound/Ravage and all that other stuff from just reading the reports on these boards, sometimes peeking at the earlier TFormers reports. If you're just looking at the pictures, that's on your head then.

    I'm guy number three.


    I am all for BW classics, or good BW reissues. I say good because I want cool figs like TM Megatron and BW Inferno to be reissued.

    Other figs can have new moulds, but really most of the BW figs don't need updates. There are exceptions but I'd much rather have reissues of season two and three characters.

    I'd rather have totally new molds for everyone. So they'd fit together in the Classics series. If they made them all amazing it'd be totally fine.

    I have the universe Optimus Primal (they call him Optimus Prime on the Pacakge). Did any one else get this one, He's all brown & white with a little red. On his package they talk about how Prime fell through a time warp or warp of some kind I believe or something like that.

    I wish I saved packages sometimes but I can't wait to open s**t so sometimes I rip up the box before I read what's on back

    Me too. But wouldn't really good new molds be better than recolors of mediocre toys?
