    Is it wrong to love Rumble and Frenzy so much?

    Oh wow. I was wondering how the hell they would make Tigs interesting since he's just black and white but... wow...

    It's a shame Soundwave doesn't have an LCD screen, but then again a screen that tiny would probably just end up broken in my hands. I ended up breaking the back/front screen of my flip cell phone. It still works and I can see the screen just fine despite three cracks in it. Still, Soundwave is a nice piece but I wonder what the maximum size SD card you can buy for him. Does anyone know what's the biggest card that you can buy for micro SD, which is what I assume he supports?

    Mmmmm, larger image of Soundwave ... aaaghgghhggggglglg.

    Sorry Frenzy & Rumble., you guys just keep looking dippier with each new picture.

    Tigatron is pretty impressive, though I think I may be satisfied with my original Japanese show-accurate Tigatron recolor. :)

    Soundwave is love. Tigatron looks pretty good too. I had the first Japanese one ages back, and wound up selling it when I downsized my BW collection. No need to buy him again.

    Soundwave is pure love. Rumble and Frenzy are a big let down. Reminds me of transformable TMNT...

    Wow Bumblebee looks so much better with clear windows (his alt mode shows them clear).

    I wonder if the K-mart exclusive Bumblebee will be the same as the Taraka version.

    Tigatron is sex and considering I have every other bloody show character from the new Takara reissues and that he's the second to last deluxe character (besides Tarantalus), he has to be mine. Nevertheless, that's $30 I wish I could save. Ethan's right, there is quite a racket going on with Beast Wars figures over the years.
