    were Noctorro and Bantor in any of the japanese beast wars shows at all? or were silverbolt and quickstrike all that got any show love?

    No, they weren't.

    Only the Deluxe Fuzors appeared in the shows in one form or another (repainted, as the Blendtrons). Noctorro, Bantor, Air Hammer, Buzzclaw and Terrorgator were ignored entirely.

    Noctorro & Bantor. 2 of the worst toys in the entire line. The fuzor idea was great, and when executed properly kicked all kinds of ass (Silverbolt, Quickstrike, Skyshadow, Torca, Terrorgator), but when it went wrong, HOW it went wrong.

    So true. I intended to never get Bantor and Noctorro, but Noctorro still found his way to me in a huge, cheap eBay lot that had some stuff I wanted. Hated the toy at first. I still think it's ugly as sin, but I've grown perversely fond of him and still haven't got rid of him. Sort of like Data at the bar in First Contact.

    "I hate this! It is revolting!"
    "More?"
    "Please!"

    Does Tigerhawk count as a Fuzor?

    Not officially. He's effectively a Transmetal 2 Fuzor, but he's officially only a TM2.

    I would say so.

    Anyway, if you're curious about uses, you can always check www.tfu.info , at the bottom they have reuses and remold info, in addition to seeing lineups by series.

    Tigerhawk rules he is one of the best beast wars toys in my opinion. I quite like bantor but noctorro's arms bother me a bit the spring design in them just annoys me.

    Ebay:
    I actually liked Banton.. if he had a weeeeee bit more articulation, he could have been loads better. :) 

    Noctorro though, I'm still trying to figure out a use for him. I ended up with him in an ebay lot like Flamepanther, but I really just have no idea with to do with him. I never displayed him with the other figures and I couldn't help but think "Damn, why couldn't I have gotten that kewl shark-hawk instead?".

    I had these two, and sold them when I got tired of pointless beasts. They exhibit my biggest problem with the beast line: they seem to forget they are supposed to be robots under the fur. There are worse toys, though.

    I have Bantor, he was always my "whipping boy" when my brother and I played.
    Always getting beaten up when Terrorsaur "hulked up" into his TM form.... poor bugger.
