    I dought it. Maybe in the future, but not for a long time. If you really wanted to, you could get another Waspinator and repaint it into Buzzsaw. Peace out.

    Even if Hasbro was still interested in doing BW reissues at this point - and with Classics followed by the movie line, they're not - Buzzsaw isn't even a show character, putting him very low on the totem pole of toys to reissue.

    Buy an original, they're not too expensive, and Japanese boxed ones might be especially cheap.

    almost zero percent chance of this happening. Buzzsaw was a non show character, BW reissues are long gone from Hasbro's plans, and they didn't seem to sell very well anyway.

    Just buy a vintage one on ebay or something, they still go for about the price any potential reissue would cost anyway.

    Hasbro made a Buzzsaw homage in the Cybertron line (in the form of an Armada Cyclonus remold) which showed a surprising re-use of the character, but I doubt they'll release another yellow Waspinator so soon after repainting the original.

    It was probably intended to be G1 Buzzsaw instead of the Beast Wars character.

    The colors were perfectly lined up with BW Buzzsaw. No way that was a G1 homage.

    I'd suggest looking on eBay for a Japanese original. They tend to go for ~$20 shipped with "Buy It Now." I've been considering getting a spare myself, as Buzzsaw was my first BW deluxe (after five basics) and helped get me back into TF's.

    The head is also spot on to BW Buzzsaw / Waspinator's "Seeker" type head. Besides, if Buzzsaw from BW was a stretch for those remolds, why'd they break out Runamuck or Longrack, two very fitting yet equally obscure choices?

    Great toys, though.



    Anyways, the odds of seeing BW Buzzsaw are extremely slim. Waspinator gets most of the love on reissues right now, as he was not only a show character, but arguably one of the best TF characters of all time.

    I don't like to make absolute statements. None of us knows what the future may bring, almost anything is possible. Look at all the things people said would never happen. Lord Byron was one of the greatest minds of his time, and he sure looks like an asshole today, doesn't he?

    That said, they will NEVER reissue BW Buzzsaw. Never ever ever.

    Ah. Buzzsaw. One of maybe 10 BW toys I don't yet own. But I will. Oh yes. I will.

    Now that's cool as hell! I never put 2 & 2 together. I have Beast Wars Buzzsaw, he's my 2nd favorite next to Big Convoy. And I have Cybertron Buzzsaw. I never even noticed they're the same character! You just made my day!!!

    It's funny, the first three posts in this thread are hidden cause thier on my ignore list, but nevertheless, I thought about this the other day so...

    Most likely not, since we got Waspy last year, but if hasbro was smart, they'd repaint BWX molds, reissueing them into beloved characters such as Tigatron, Grimlock, Blackarachnia and Buzzsaw.

    I wonder, I'm missing about that many as well. Would the ten happen to be the three TM2 Basics that never made it over here, the repaints from the first line (Wolfang, Grimlock et al?) and a couple of odd ones in the middle that had very limited release?
