    If the upcoming Beast Wars comic series has more characters then the cartoon, then what characters would you like to see in the comic series besides the ones from the Beast Wars cartoon?

    I want to see Wolfang, Razorbeast, Polar Claw at the very least.

    Maximus Primal would be a really good name for Big Convoy

    So many.

    Insecticon. B'Boom. Air Hammer. Bantor. Sonar. Noctorro. THE MANTERROR. Scourge. Optimus Minor. Snapper. Jetstorm (the dragonfly not the Vehicon). Sky Shadow. Injector. Iguanus. Armordillo. Magnaboss.

    OH! Maybe that could be the Commander class toy for Kingdom! I'd love a better Magnaboss toy. One that isn't perpetually looking up.

    Hot take, Universe 2.0 Ironhide constantly bowing his noggin downward is him overcompensating for raising his combiner head upward too much in his Beast Wars days.

    As for me, Im a sucker for Jawbreaker and I'd love to see him more, maybe with Noctorro. I seem to recall them having a connection.

    Razorbeast. The answer is always Razorbeast.

    The 4-issue miniseries gave Razorbeast just as much characterization in so few pages as half the characters in Beast Wars got over 3 seasons. Brilliantly done. Also love seeing the Air Hammer love in here! I’d vote Torca as well. He’s so much fun despite the GPS.

    For non-show characters:
    Definitely the two combiners
    Jetstorm
    Manterror (fembot)
    B'Boom (and if he were put in a show, VA has to be able to do a good R. Lee Ermy, r.i.p.)

    Maybe to play on the (actually exaggerated) trope of mantis post-sexual cannibalism?

    IMO I think they should make a new female character rather than make a previous character female.

    Maybe it's time for NAVI-ko to appear for the western fan base.

    Wouldn't they need to change the name to "Womanterror"?

    women can be terrors to men so the name makes sense...or would make sense if manterror wasn't a guy already

    That's an easy fix, Manterror was in a fight with Escargon and had their gender changed thanks to Escargon's Love-Love Lancer.

    I always love seeing that display. Hopefully I'll some day be able to add a prototype to my collection.

    Also, check me out. Finally got around to using my TFW2005 account. Building up my posts so I can hunt my last remaining pieces.
