    Creative Beasts Studios, the guy who did the accurate articulated Raptor toys and just finished up the Ceratopians, is going to start on T-rex builds. He is looking for suggestions. Mergatron, S1 Megatron especially, is a must in my book. Possibly T-Wrecks as well.

    Here's the thing. They guy is a small business with kickstarter backing. If you go flood his page with BW decos, you must put your money with your mouth is and buy them. He's already a Beast Wars fan and did a quasi Guiledart homage. He'll do them, you've just got to buy them.

    Anyways, go leave a comment for BW Megatron here.

    EDIT: On a second reading, it looks like he is asking for species suggestions, not decos
    I'd hold off on suggesting anything just yet.

    They don't. It would be an homage rather than an actual stand in.

    Stupid question, but does anyone know if TFSource actually has PE Beast Gorira, PE Mega Doragon, and JX Metal Winged Dragon in stock?

    I only ask because other places list them as "Out of Stock".

    As I understand the question, I don’t believe there’s a way to answer it without coming off patronising- so I’m going to embrace it-
    Going out of stock on one site doesn’t mean they’re out of stock on all sites; so if it says Beast Gorirra and Winged Dragon are in stock on TFSource- which it does- then it means they are in stock. Buy away.
    No Mega Doragon though. But remember, this doesn’t mean it’s out of stock on all other shops.

    TFSource also buys collections & pieces of collections and stacks orders, so with out going to the site and checking the deets, its possible that they were buy backs ore delinquent stacks that were never paid for.

    Thanks. I was mostly asking because I've never ordered from TFSource before, and didn't how accurate their listings are. I've been to plenty of sites that list things as "In Stock", when its really not.

    But yeah I'm thinking of finally pulling the trigger on Beast Gorira and one of these Megatron's. Leaning more towards Mega Doragon because its cheaper, but damn I love how show accurate the JX figure is.

    If you want them to pair with each other then go for mega doragon, jx is way to big to pair with beast gorira

    Hey all, I heard that Beast Wars Megatron Masterpiece has a potential hip breaking issue. I am usually OVERLY careful with my stuff, but if I have a truly fault product that breaks is there a warranty for these things?

    Was waiting a long time to find this TM2 Cheetor variant for a decent price. It wasn't sealed. Which is fine. I open all of it anyway.
    Just ordered the yellow eyes TM2 Dinobot mosc to go with it. And I believe I'll be opening that one up once it comes in! :D

    Looks like the grey/metals are lighter colored than the original.

    Yep. Silver paint used in place of the gray paint apps.
    It's an early promotional type release from Japan. It was on a US card with the bio/tech spec covered by a sticker with Japanese writing.
    I've also got this TM2 Dinobot on the way. Same story.
    Unfortunately the differences are very minor compared to the Cheetor variant.
    i-img901x1200-1534710286adojhy297328.jpg
    But. Given our shared obsession with the character I needed it lol
    I'll probably open it. Wish all the red paint was replaced with yellow instead of just the beast mode eyes, though.

    It's odd that these variants are on these US cards instead of in the Metals boxes. I think for the most part the Metals TM2 Cheetor and Dinobot are exactly the same as the Hasbro counterparts, yeah?. Considering how different Power Convoy was from OpOp... Idk. Weird.
