    I had this as a kid, and had no idea what the point was. I didn't think it was a real BW TF until much, much later.

    I loved Retrax. No usable arm articulation whatsoever, but he's just SO damn creepy.

    Thank God, I didn't buy him when Beast Wars was out. Man, that is one piece of slag for sure. Thanks Omegus for the review, I did enjoy it.

    I, too, had that abomination of a toy as a kid.

    What's really funny is that I remember my mom commenting on how bad of a toy it was. :lol

    Plays fine for me... I know a few people on my channel had problems viewing it, too, I have no idea why though.

    i have both the japanese and the american version; to tell you the truth; the japanese one is at least 1000 times better then the american version; at least paint wise.

    but then again i bought my american version when it first came out a LONG time ago; i actually quite like it; except for the gimmick. the gimmick becomes loose over time; and makes it impossible for it to stay in place. so it is constantly being switched. and turning into a ball.

    btw. love the "automorph" part :lol 

    this toy would be MUCH better; if it just did NOT have the gimmick.

    strange just wondering if it was only me, what it does is it won't play until it loads all the way ad then it justs skips all the way to the end.
