    I won an eBay bid on "TF Odds N'Ends". This is from an "Exclusive Toyfare Edition" showing the "Upcoming Beast Machines." I thought some BM fans might enjoy this:

    Thanks for sharing that. I'm probably one of the only fans who likes BM more than any of the other series (I think it's the post-apocalyptic feeling), so it's neat to see something like that.

    Anyway, the paint schemes aren't too different, but jetstorm's original name was quite a surprise. Glad they changed it, far too easy to guess where "Skybolt" got his spark.

    Also, check out the blurb about the movie at the bottom: almighty wheelie! :lol

    the early colored Skybolt sketch/picture showed him in red/black colors with blue highlights (idea for another repaint :p  )

    Another name considered for BM Mirage was Skidmark (seen in an early 2000 issue of Tomart's Action Figure Digest).

    So is Hasbro revisiting the old Beast Machines line or are these going to be part of the Beast Wars Returns line, the current Japanese Beast Machines line?

    No, this is an old issue from back before Beast Machines came out.

    Interesting stuff. A pity Burnout, aka Mirage, has never been portrayed like that, he'd have been interesting to see in action. Odd too how I've been using my Scavengers as tank drones all this time as well.
