    Really looking forward to add "Rhinox" in July and "tigatron" whenever it comes out, so I can finish the S1 Maximals!

    Honestly, I think it's damn amazing we managed to get 10 unique molds out of the concept, with each side getting the same number to boot. Feels nice and complete, as opposed to similarly weird niche ideas like the Mutants and Fossilizers.

    More Fuzors would be cool, though. The Maximals could stand to have a little more variety; the Predacons got really experimental.
    An "ultimate" fusion could've been cool. Each side having, like, an Ultra-Class figure made up of a bunch of different animals, akin to Jurassic Park Chaos Effect's sadly-unreleased Ultimasaurus:

    ... or I guess like Tripredacus and Magnaboss if they weren't Combiners.

    Or Magmatron if you ignore his separated dino mode.

    It just gets me thinking what else could they have done?

    We had "Normal Beasts" for the first two years.
    Then we got Fuzors or "Chimera Beasts" and Transmetals or "Mechanical Beasts".
    Then we got Transmetal II's who are "Cyborg Beasts" mixing the organic and mechanical.

    Then we got Fossilizers the BW version of Weaponizers who are "Skeleton Beasts" that can become weapons for other warriors serving as support or merging together into giant bone warriors.

    Seriously, what else can we can get? I honestly would love to see something like "Elemental Beasts" where IDK exposure to a Vok device gives some Beast Warriors elemental powers that can be used in either robot or beast mode. This gimmick would make use of Blast Effects.

    Think we can get Mini-Cons? I mean they did add some of the Transmetals to the Armada line even if the power link gimmick didn't activate anything. Though I think Mini-Cons with beast modes would look better on the Maximals and Predacons then little cars and planes...

    I just love how Kingdom has added new characters to the Beast Warriors line up with the Fossilizers. I want more and I hope we continue to get more.

    At this point, I'm really intrigued to see how Tigatron will differ from Cheetor. But I'm really looking forward to seeing Terrorsaur's engineering!!

    Ps. Welcome to the site!!

    I like this thinking and it could even play around with stuff you see in biology a bit too
    -Minicon pairing mirroring real-life symbiotic relationships
    -Metamorphosis insectoid triple changers
    -Glow-in-the-dark bioluminescent seaformers
    -More playing on the beast/plant and beast/corpse concepts we got a taste of with some of those Japanese dino molds would be crazy
    -FANTASY BEASTS. I want gryphons, manticores, and whatever other freaky myth beast you can name

    Rhinox could be paired with an Oxpecker!

    Or Tarantulas's spider drones. He could have an army of little spider bots. I'm sure arachnophobic TF fans would love that...

    The stock colors weren't doing anything for me, so like my Kingdom version, I had to give this little turbo-changer a makeover.

    Awesome collection. Antagony is has been my grail figure for a long time. I doubt I will ever have one since the price is really high if one does come up for sale. I’m still so jealous of that proto Inferno.

    went on a hunt for t30 Rhinox after the kingdom one was revealed but his price shot up. Got super lucky when I went to a vintage toy store and he was right there for 30 bucks. All I need is a Tigatron for a full season 1 Maximal display
