    Well, with the news of MP Dinobot, 2018 is shaping up to be the most expensive year for BW fans since... 2006?

    My first and only Beast Wars purchase. Not bad for $25.00.

    Ay, got both the American and Takara versions of that toy. Not my favorite, but looks really nice with the right shade of metallic blue.

    Assuming the leaked screenshots showing waves 1-3 plus wave 4 deluxes are true(they have been so far), I think there's not much more to expect in the way of all new molds from POTP. Of course only the 1 Titan expected. There are 3 leader molds, so I don't expect any more. There are 3 voyager molds, so likely 1, maybe 2 new molds left. There are 5 legends molds, maybe a couple new ones left there. The Primemasters are just Pretender shells, then deluxes there are 6 all new base molds, so maybe a couple more, but the line up for waves 1-4 is there, so that just leaves wave 5 while wave 6 could very well turn out like TR and just have 1 new item while everything else is repacks.

    So very few new mold slots and few mainline mass retail slots left as well. What will they do for exclusives might be the main hope for any thing more Beast Wars related. While there should be some retailer and online exclusives, there won't be any Hascon exclusive since the next one is 2019, which should be after POTP's run and anything would focus on whatever Hasbro's on to then.

    Nice collection you've got there, @GALVATOM :thumb 

    That's the 3-D printed Dinobot figure in the back, yes?

    Great figure!

    More TFs should come with shields. It's an underrated accessory.

    What are your thoughts (if any) on the Telemocha Dinobot?

    @joegz Great shot! The lighting makes the colors really pop, especially that blue! :cool:

    I don't like it as much as the original Takara colour scheme. The Telemocha almost looks to be burned rather than stripey in my opinion so it resembles his look toward the end of Code of Hero. That's just the way the Dino skin parts are painted though, there's no battle damage deliberately painted on anywhere. The paint scheme favors robot mode at the cost of beast mode in some cases (maybe that isn't a big deal just with how the original deluxe Dinobots beast mode is) with the effort being gone to paint gold shoulder plates he has on the show. His robot head is nice, with the teeth painted but again I just like the original Takara better because overall it feels like there's too much paint on the TeleMocha Dinobot it makes it a bit too busy and we don't even get that much blue on him, it doesn't work as well as Telemocha Cheetor or Megatron

    The transmetals Blackarachnia is pretty great in general, imo.

    No,it's over budget,and it's not so good in robot mode tbh.
