    Hello, guys, while checking some BW NEO figires I noticed some fo them still ahve the rub-sign symbol in osme part, but some figures like Bump, originally BW Armordillo does not have any rub-sign or something.

    What other BW figures does not have any sign? Which ones do have a rub-sign or spark?


    Thanks a lot!

    Rockbuster and Survive don't have any, either. So I assume remold/recolour Neo figures don't have the crystal. Didn't check the other guys, thoguh...

    (Korean) BW2 Starscream - has a square on the wing behind his left shoulder, but no rubsign inside it. Do not know if Jap version is different. Can't find anything on BB

    BW2 Thrust and Dirge - both have rubsigns on their left wings. The Robotmasters that were repainted from them dont

    BW Tripredacus - has at least one rubsign inside of the beetle shell. Don't know about the BW2 version

    BWN Elephorca - has a square on his back (under the dorsal fin/gun) but no rubsign in it

    BWN Drancron - has a square inside of his beast mode neck (piece that goes behind his back in bot mode) but no rubsign in it

    BW Injector - has a rubsign under his fish head (can only be seen when the spring mechanism is activated). Do not know if it is on the BWN Rartorarta (probably not)

    BW2 Galvatron - has a rubsign under the tank treads on his right leg

    the only other figures I have are Armada Cheetor, Airazor, and Predacon, but I am too lazy to check them

    My Flash Lioconvoy has one. The chest plate that opens up has a rubsign on the other side of it (flip side of the cover). I found that to be a nice surprise :)

    I checked my japanese BW D-13 Starscream and want to confirm he has the rub-sign square, but no rub-sign in sight.

    (Closest pic I have showing it)

    From what i understand, none of the first wavers have rubsigns. Primal/Megatron 2-pack, Terrorsaur, Rattrap, Iguanis, Razorclaw and whoever else was in that very first wave do not have rubsigns. Not sure about the original deluxes, though, but I don't recall Waspy, Cheetor, and the gang having them. HOWEVER, at least one fo the repaints (Lazorbeak a repaint of Terrosaur who in turn was repainted into Hydra for NEO) was remolded to include a rubsign.

    I'm pretty sure the vast majority of Beast Wars figures released in 1996 lacked rub signs. TFU.info lists Inferno with the '96ers and he has a rubsign.

    Thanks a lot for the info. It would be interesting to get for sure which BW orignal figures had rub-sign. I didn't know Terrorsaur had no sign originally.

    Inferno was amongst the first to have a rubsign.

    The first few waves lacked rubsigns:

    2-Pack Primal and Megatron
    Rattrap
    Razorbeast
    Terrorsaur
    Iguanus
    Dinobot
    Cheetor
    Tarantulas
    Waspinator
    Armordillo
    Insecticon
    Snapper
    Rhinox
    Wolfang
    Jetstorm
    Polar Claw
    Scorponok
    Ultra Primal
    Ultra Megatron

    It wasn't until the third wave or so of figures that they started adding the rubsigns. Additionally, any repaints of the previous figures during the BW run were remolded to accept a rubsign.
