    Isn't it time for a Beast Wars revival? I mean we have 24 different Iron Hide's from 68 different universes, but only 1 Rattrap. I want more BEAST WARS!!

    Actually I would very much prefer BW to be just left alone. Yes, it's my favorite series so far, which is why I don't want them to keep rebooting it in comics and such like what they did to G1 so far... Toywise, sure, why not? Except that the Universe Cheetor looked pretty horrible IMO. Then again, the Universe Dinobot was pretty much win, so it can kinda go both ways.

    Beast wars was fun. Would be cool since Hasbro's doing a bunch of sideline stuff these days anyways.
    Classics Cheetor & Dinobot were a little wierd though.

    Would love some more basic BW combiners.
    Magnaboss, Tripledacus & Magmatron we're cool.
    Or 2 new Piranacon sets. The original version, and a new verson similar to the energon/Superlink/Classics combiners.

    DVDs and a new Toyline would be perfect for Beast Wars.As for a new TV and/or Comic Series,I don't really wish for one,considering that Beast Wars was done so well,to revive it wouldn't go up par to it's predecessor.

    At least we had a few Beast homages in Animated,and that's fine by me.

    For the most part I agree, but I am not sure if the general population is ready for beast transformers again. A subline would be nice, but I doubt that Hasbro is going to move away from what is working.

    The 10th Aniv. BW toys didn't sell well & the BW Classics toys were some of the poorer sellers of that line. The general public just doesn't want animal TF as much as some fans would like them to.

    I'd love to see some rereleases of some older figures like Transmetal Megatron so I could get one for cheap that wouldn't break in pieces either

    Sad that the public might not want them, but I really hope for Beastformers again. Of course it's not going to supplant the vehicle ones, but it would be nice to at least have some beast transformers as parts of bigger lines (GENERATIONS I'M LOOKING AT YOU)

    And yes, hulk23869, we need us more Rattrap!

    I think I'd much rather have a show with good writing like beast wars, than just a re-hash of beast wars.

    I don't have a problem with reviving the property, but I really want them to somehow get rid of the name "Optimus Primal". That was an unbelievably cheesy take on the "good guy" leader. I'd even argue it's important to ditch it now because Optimus Prime has become a household name. Seriously, bad pun is bad.

    People saying the public might not accept animalformers could be right. A solution could be to introduce the characters on Cybertron first. In other words, make the first year or so of toys look like actual robots. That gives all fans something brand new to munch on, and keeps in sync with the uber-robotic look of the movie toys.

    A good idea. I believe what you are saying are robotic animal modes? If not, do forgive me.

    I think releases of Transmetal-like figures may garner good support. I'm not sure about kids nowadays, but as a kid, Transmetals made me all kinds of crazy with their uber-cool robotic look, plus those (admittedly half-hearted) vehicle third modes they had. I would just love to see some animal modes be done again, even if they are a small minority.

    I wish I had at least one of the BW toys.:(  But, I don't like the Universe Cheetor, and couldn't find Dinobot, so... Yeah. We need more BW toys in Universe/Classics. Especially Transmetal versions. I loved Tarantulus in his TM form.:D

    All I want, is for them to do some really kick-ass figures.

    All the characters from the show, re-done to be show-accurate (as possible) in proper scale.

    I want Rhinox and Dinobot to be bigger than Optimus, not the other way around dammit. lol

    Oh and maybe a re-release of the show on DVD? One of the discs in my season 1 set is messed up (despite not having any really visible flaws o_O ).

    Beast Wars badly needs a return. I hope for more Beast Wars characters in Generations, especially Rhinox and Rattrap, but any beasties would be fine. I really loved Beast Wars, and I hope for Hasbro to show it some love, rather than throw it away.
