30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2000

Posted on 04-24-2014 at 12:00 PM by Sol Fury under Beast Machines
2000 As the 21st century dawned full of promise, the Beast era reached its conclusion, and with it the long running continuity that had begun with More than Meets the Eye Part 1 in 1984. The Beast Machines toyline was released in full force, though by the time there was substantial product on the shelves the first season of the cartoon was already finished and the second season was well underway. 2000 also brought the final four releases in the Beast Wars line – the Mutants – and brought back the Dinobots as a subline of the Beast Machines toys. Meanwhile Takara decided to go their own direction, moving away from beasts and instead running with a new series about a group of car robots.

Beast Machines Unproduced Megabolt Megatron Grand Mal Prototype

Posted on 09-19-2013 at 04:46 PM by Sol Fury under Beast Machines
Capture-000025tf Here is something extraordinarily cool. During Beast Machines' second season, you might remember that Megatron had a gigantic flying fortress modeled after his head - the Grand Mal. You might also be aware that a toy was designed for the Battle for the Spark subline of Beast Machines toys, which was canceled from that line and ultimately released in the following Robots in Disguise line. You might also remember that toy being rather unlike the depiction of the Grand Mal from the series, featuring spider legs not featured in the show.

What we have here to share with you now by way of the Robot Points blog is a previously never-before-seen prototype of Megabolt Megatron - one which follows the on-screen design of the megahead fortress much more closely. The design of the alternate head form lacks the spider legs, and features the thrusters at the rear as on the original design. As with the release version, the toy transforms into a robot mode, this one with clear chest panels showing off moving gears.

What is shown in this blog post is a resin prototype, and it is believed that this concept never progressed beyond this point. It is thought that the design was overhauled into the one that was released to maximise playability with the spider legs, and perhaps also because the gears in the chest were too expensive to implement.

Check out the full story on the Robot Points blog and take a look at this rare piece of unreleased Transformers merchandise.

Beast Machines Unreleased Megatron Megabolt In Package Images

Posted on 02-16-2013 at 07:40 AM by Sol Fury under Beast Machines
1361013629631 Here is a real blast from the past. Via the Futaba image board we can share some images of a packaged sample of Megatron Megabolt from the Beast Machines line with you. For those not familiar with this toy, it was originally intended for a release in 2001 as a part of the Beast Machines Battle for the Spark line, but the line was cancelled before it ever made it to retail (the toy would later be released, repackaged, under the Robots in Disguise line). What we have here for you is a rare look at a packaged sample of the Battle for the Spark Megatron Megabolt, a toy which like the Generation 2 Stunticons or Megatron ATB only exists in very small (probably single digit) quantities.

Take a look and enjoy!

Beast Hunters - Plans For A Possible New Beast Wars/Machines Cartoon & Toyline

Posted on 09-12-2012 at 01:00 PM by SilverOptimus under Beast Machines
Beasthunters Whoa Hasbro! That’s two days with two reveals… Oh yes, you read the title… here’s the story from your favorite Transformers Website:

Hasbro has applied for a brand-new Trademark (at the United States Patent & Trademark Office) under 2 categories:

Toyline: toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms.

Cartoon Series: entertainment services, namely, an on-going animated television series for children.

And the Trademark is… Beast Hunters.

Fans of the Beast Era would immediately recognize the new trademark as the original working title for Beast Machines.

We don’t know how this will eventually turn-out to be… but we do know that there are thousands of TFW2005 Beast Era fans dancing at the moment. Party tonight, people?
