    Well you said "Heresy" when I dissed the Beast Machines designs, and then you went on to say that some of them where better than Beast Wars, and honestly the whole thing I did was just a bad joke that probably came across as pretty rude... sorry.

    Believe me when compared to most of the faces of BM her face in Earth Wars is perfectly fine.

    I think that's just the game designers having fun. Rhinox is the same from memory.

    But yes, dial up the organic-ness slightly and get that Voyager figure on the shelves!

    Frankly, I'm just happy to see BW and/or BM characters being featured in anything.

    I really like this Dinobot, it's my favorite so far from the game designs. Beast mode reminds me of the Cyber-raptors due to how lean and feral he looks and you'd of thought with all the knight themed dinosaurs that came out in the movie lines at least one of those might have made a fit for this but I don't like any of those, far too many spikes. I like the spikes on this design though and they'd kind of fit in with the other rib parts if they where the same colour.
    Black Arachnia's face looks to be covered by a helm, if you look at it that way it doesn't seem so odd and fits in with the "armored up" look.

    While we're in a kind of BW drought and I'm waiting for the Fans Hobby Megs to get to here, I thought I'd photograph one of the best convoy designs (in my opinion) who also happens to have a very large number of representations since his debut.

    The originals (or figures based off the original)

    So I think now would be a good time to discuss the possibility of new BW figures in the POTP line. I especially hope for Dinobot's Forged to Fight design, as every other character model (That I know of) is based on a toy of some kind.

    While having elements of the universe design, cheetor is pretty far from that in reality

    Wait, are you talking about the Forged to Fight thing? Because Cheetor isn't in that.

    No. Earth Wars is a completely different beast. The only BW characters to appear in Forged to Fight are Rhinox, Waspinator, Dinobot, and soon to be Scorponok and Megatron.

    Okay good to know he’s coming to the game and can’t wait to see his design bring it on :D  so was their many predacons in G1 other than predaking himself.

    Not really, unless you count ravage. G1 predacons were strictly predaking and his members, bw predacons are the descendants of the decepticons or upgraded decepticons (like ravage)
