    I’m not entirely sure, I don’t have armada hoist (dinobots mold mate) or blitzwing/megatron from titans return, unicron trilogy deluxes are typically larger than modern deluxes, but still shorter than modern voyagers

    I'll have to think of something for Megatron if not the Botcon. Plus it's also hard for Waspinator.

    Yo, i'm getting rid of a X9 metals Jaguar (Ravage). I thought i'd give you guys dibs before I toss it into the cold abyss of the free market.

    It was taken out of box twice, doesn't have the Megatron sticker, and has the Decepticon sticker on the chest.

    Not a huge fan of the beast mode with the visible robot bits in-between the skin but still, give me a Voyager class figure that looks close to this and I'll buy it.

    So I've been looking at some of the beast wars models for Earth Wars, and I must say, I don't like any of them, save for maybe Megatron. Optimus just feels off, and both his, and Cheetor's transformation animations are just so lazy. Blackarachnia isn't actually all that bad, except for her face, which is horrid. Though I'm pleasantly surprised to say that Forged to Fight is the complete opposite, where I genuinely really like all their designs, save for one, that being Rhinox. Though the only other two BW characters that I've actually seen are Waspinator and Dinobot, they both look amazing, and I can't wait to see how Megatron and Scorponk turn out. And I must say, I flipping love Dinobot's new look!

    Can we please get a toy of this design in Power of The Primes? With Primal winning the vote and getting a new leader figure, and the MP Dinobot slowly making its way, I really feel like our chances of getting new Beast Wars figures in main line toy series is pretty good.

    As cool as that Dinobot looks, Hasbro will surely find some way to screw the toy up, undoubtedly on purpose too.

    That's a pretty pessimistic way of looking at things. What makes you think this?

    Seriously though, the Earth Wars designs are crap. Who looked at this

    Or this

    And thought this was a good idea? Because they aren't. They're crap.

    I don't really have a problem with them. Not completely to my taste but acceptable (if unimaginative) designs that are in keeping with the and recognisable as the characters they depict. I don't play the game so I'm not really invested either way.

    But Blackarachnia's face. Good god, why did they need to mess up her face like that?

    Because Universe Dinobot was yellow and purple. I would have accepted all the toy's other flaws, but the color scheme was inexcusable. Why can't they ever get his colors right?

    Just doesn't bother me I guess, far worse crimes have been committed with the franchise.

    Universe Dinobot was also a long time ago.

    Fair. I still prefer all the Earth Wars designs over the Beast Machines Maximals.

    But the beast machine maximals are horrific! Or at least their robot designs. The beast modes I actually find amazing. Especially Cheetor. But the robot modes are just so bad. Especially Cheetor.

    TBH they don't bug me toooo much

    Not exactly in my taste but without the context of the characters the designs themselves aren't too bad to me.
