    NOW I AM!! I've had a bunch of different versions of BW Optimus Primal for a while now including the TRU 2-pack version, The Original USA Version, Universe Version, Burning BW Convoy, Clear BW Convoy, and DX BW Convoy.

    Now I'm excited for the new Universe versions of Cheetor and Dinobot. I especially love the new Cheetor eye-changing gimmick that we just saw pics of!!

    BW was never my thing because I was a little older when the show came out. I was just graduating high school at the time and thus I missed out on alot of great toys.

    In your opinion, which BW toys out there are the best "must haves"? I'm not talking about Beast Machines either because no offense to anyone out there who likes them but, they're really not my thing.

    I know Sky-Byte is a must but, what else did I miss during the BW era that I need to look at?

    THANKS FOR POSTING!!

    Heinrad is my favorite, but that's because he's a tanuki and has a set of robot balls.

    He's actually a great toy, and I was dead serious on him being my favorite BW figures (although the balls aren't the main reason!). He can even be considered a triple-changer since he can be a robot, a 'realistic' tanuki that walks on all fours (similar to a raccoon) or a 'mythological' tanuki (the kind with giant balls who's statues adorn some Japanese stores). And what's cooler than a takeout box and sake bottle that combine to form a gun? :D

    That's exactly what I was thinking. I gotta find him. :D 

    My personal favorites from the BW era were the Transmetals. I guess cause they were more robotic. Single favorite... probably Waspinator.

    The original Cheetor, I have the Japanese reissue and I consider him a very good figure a little "Hot Rod" remiscent, if you will.

    TM2 megs, depth charge, rampage, and optimal optimus are must haves in my opinion! Also Lio convoy rules

    While I'm not too crazy about the Classics Cheetor, I love the new Dinobot.

    And if it wasn't for BW I might have not have remained a Transformer fan during my teens. So thank you Beast Wars!

    THIS.

    Also, while not technically a BW toy, Primal Prime is pretty badass. Also, if you want to watch the amazing BW show, I'd say grab the DVDs aswell.
