    Rattrap definitely deserves the Classics treatment. Only with no design problems or weird colors.

    Snarl, even though he didn't make the poll...



    ...though out of the one's that did make the cut, I would have to say Scorponok. Would be nice to see a modern interpretation of his design.

    Rattrap.
    Should be a deluxe, in his non-Transmetal body.
    Or better yet, a basic, but they don't use that size anymore, do they?

    Megatron and Primal got good 10th anniversary figures, so they don't need a new mold. Waspinator got an Animated upgrade, and Tarantulas and Rattrap got pretty good transmetal figures. Scorponok's toy didn't seem that bad either. That leaves Rhinox or Terrorsaur. You could probably get a good Terrorsaur repaint out of Animated Swoop to go along with Waspinator. My vote thus goes to Rhinox.

    Rattrap needs to be more than a Activator/Pretender bastard child.

    Yeah, Rattrap deserves a new mold.



    Rattrap was one of my favorite characters from Beast Wars. But his toy left a lot to be desired. It was such a crappy toy. Mine was defective. The gear would slip on his tranformation, and then his sides wouldnt close right. Plus the tail mechanism wouldnt work right, so it never closed correctly.

    Also, his brain and eyes were one piece, so I could take it out, which was stupid. Also, his gun was just retarded. Why they made it two seperate, and small pieces always bothered me because they were so small to begin with.

    Overall, yeah, Rattrap got a really crappy mold, and design. He looked nothing like the show, and the other Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader figures were just better overall. Even some lackluster figures had better designs at least, and looked more like the show.

    I would like to see a Universe Rattrap at some point. Or just a remake. Whatever. I love how they re-did Cheetor and Dinobot, so there's no doubt they can make him a really great figure to have with proper design, and look like the show.

    Rhinox definitely. I'd love for a voyager sized Universe mold.

    Terrorsaur should get a deluxe.

    I'd say Ratrap, but his TM mold is pretty spot on.

    Rhinox, his character never got any justice in toy form.

    In terms of what's on the poll list, gotta go with Rhinox or non Transmetal Rattrap. In terms of what isn't on the list, it'd be nice to get a more stable Inferno or B'boom/Apache- but the latter just has a very special place in my heart (certain memory attached to it)
