So, I recently received a package I got off ebay for $30, which was a lot of Beast Machines toys. I wasn't a fan of the show at all, and everything I've seen of the toyline has put me off it. I only bought the lot because it had Thrust and Blackarachnia in it, and I was slightly interested in those two. Unfortunately, those two left me a bit tepid, didn't quite hit the spot. But, fortunately, the rest of the box, which I was just going to write off, turned out uncommonly good. Scavenger, Cycle Drone, Mirage, and Blastcharge were actually quite good fun, especially considering 3 of them were Basics. But the real joy came from the two Mega-class guys. Tankor is all kinds of awesome, even if his vehicle mode is a bit flimsy. Plus, he rivals Animated Swindle in my eyes for best light-piping gimmick ever. If you don't know, he's got a knob on his back that'll actually make his cyclops eye turn back and forth, and the light-piping works no matter where it's pointing. That's damn cool. He's seriously in my top 5 tankformers now. And the other, which I know is probably going to raise some eyebrows, is Mega Cheetor. Yeah yeah, I know what everyone thinks of him, but after getting him in my hands, I'm actually kinda in love with it. Once I figured out the trick to making him stand up, I really started to admire his abundance of joints, and his colors really do it for me. And his proportions, while weird, makes him stand out. Only downer for me is Cheetor's missing his tail, but if I can find one, I'd LOVE to complete him. So, what are some Transformers that you picked up, expecting either nothing or the worst, that ended up destroying your expectations?
