    He's weird but I dig it! I also like that I can have this as my Twinferno and the TR figure as my Doublecross. Twinferno is gonna be Doublecross' cousin from Appalachian country.

    I challenge you to find five random fans who even know who that is! ;)  I can't even tell which program that is.... Car Robots?

    Here's hoping RID gives us a Grotusque and a proper non-Titan Master Repugnus. The Monsterbots are my favorite subgroup ever.

    @MartyFeeb: BB is from Beast Wars II, a Japanese exclusive TF series. He was basically Starscream's big, stupid buddy. He's so dense, in fact, that the only word he can say is "Roger!"

    i can see that in regards to the no-nose thing. some characters i feel it kind of works for and like with knockout from prime my love for the character makes that a minor issue for me. much like how non traditional headmasters being headmasters in TR are a minor nitpick for me. hey at least we agree on them putting better figures out now. i'm thankful for that since i was sure this was going to be a short lived toyline.

    that scorponok is quite fun...i got the paralon version for the homage but he transforms really well to a bug. that soundwave his HIGH on my want list and i hope the blurr is a taste of things to come with a few more rescue bot cameos in this line

    I don't follow RiD regularly, so I may have missed them originally.

    Ironically, I think I owned the guy in toy form! :lol  He came with a smaller jet! Multi-missile launchers! :D 
    I counted THREE fans. So.... I win? :D 

    Anyway, BWII?!?! Wow, that's obscure. If I know my TF programming, it was not only Japanese-exclusive, it also never received an official sub/dub. Meaning, anyone who HAS SEEN IT has most likely watched a pirated/fan-sub version... which is pretty hardcore in the realm of TF fandom (it's hard enough to get fans to watch the official Japanese G1 shows!). From what I know, the only way to watch BWII in English is to go to proper (nonofficial) website... (which is on my to-do list, simply because of some of the awesome BWII characters/toys it spawned!).

    So... yeah... OBSCURE. :sly:

    It is also Takara's reuse of the toys that would have been Megatron and Starscream in the US, had G2 not been canceled.

    Karyuudo Fansubs subbed this show last year, you can find it in full on their YouTube channel or download off their website.
    BWII was probably the funniest show I watched last year, its definitely worth a watch.
    Also BB is a repainted G2 toy, Dreadwing, and Starscream was a repainted Smokescreen. I have them and they're really awesome toys. I was disappointed Takara never made a BB with that Generations Dreadwing they did a few years ago, that head sculpt was superb.

    BWII BB says more than just "Roger" here and there, but by no means is he big on conversation.

    I'm actually watching the show right now when I'm bored since I haven't gone back to work yet.
