    I never had a Beast Machines toy! Well, I have a rendition of the Mirage mold, but I don't count that one.

    So... I'm thinking of buying at least one. So out of ALL the Beast Machines toys, what one should I buy?

    Air Attack Primal I suppose. Or one of the vehicons, they actually were pretty cool.

    Deluxe Jetstorm. Easily the best toy of the entire line.

    I forgot to mention that I also have Universe 1 Skywarp... But I do like that mold.

    As for Tankor, I just watched the first episode of Beast Machines and I was thinking the same.

    Either him or scavenger (could get the rid version)

    I own Tankor and the larger Jetstorm too but the deluxe Jetstorm is such a fun toy

    I'd say just about ANY Vehicon will be a satisfactory purchase. Plus, aside from the kickass Cycle drone, ALL have seen some sort of redeco in the years since BM.

    Best bang for your buck, IMO, is either the Universe set of Tankor and Obsidion (Obsidion is quite nifty) or the Robots in Disguise Autobot Mega 3 pack (Mirage, Scavenger AND Spy Streak in nifty colors)

    Echoing the Tankor sentiment. In my opinion, he's one of the very best toys of the Beast Era.

    Pretty much any basic aside from Silverbolt and Longhorn will do you right. I really liked Battle Unicron and Mirage. (I don't have the Tank Drone, so I can't speak to that, but the rest are awesome).

    I found most of the Vehicons decent and the Maximals lame. Night Slash Cheetor isn't bad. Snarl is okay. Really I think the line overall is a disappointment.

    I like the basic Thrust drone, its the most show accurate figure besides the basic Tankor drone.

    I gotta say, for being a basic, Quickstrike is remarkably fun. and he can be posed like he snuck up behind you and is holding a blade to your neck. well so long as you're a basic too. i think i had a set up of him doing that to Mirage, and Longhorn pointing one of his blades at him. a double Maximal Mugging.
