    Now post the McDonald's toy!

    Also, that Transmetal Rhinox with the Cheetor colors is sexy, I dig that a lot. It feels like it has its own identity. The other two look too similar in robot mode, but I dig the cyan vacmetal on the center one.


    I never had this toy as a kid, but I thought it was a beat design, same with Transmetal Waspinator toy. I didn't pick up Airrazor, but wasn't as hot in her as the other two 'what if' Transmetals. The Scavenger ant was awesome and I had that as a kid for an Inferno stand-in. But I always dug the Rhinox and Waspinator designs a lot. Seeing these all together makes me really wish I had one.

    Which is the 'real' one?

    Did they do recovers of the Transmetal Waspinator too? Was that figure as awesome as I built up in my head for 20+ years?

    Thankfully I only collect full-sized figures!

    Which one has the Cheetor colors? Yes the blue vac metal is stunning in person. I have to do a double take each time I handle the figure. I do like the Fox Kids one for the Tankor parallels.

    I suppose you could say the "pink" Takara one, since it appeared in the Metals game.

    They're actually not hard to find these days.

    They did, though I prefer the original deco. All Waspinators are compromised in some way. For what it's worth the Transmetal figure is my favorite Waspinator, but for me personally it's not in the top 10 TM/TM2 molds or anything.

    My Beast Wars collection is slightly changing to toy accurate organic beasts from the first two years. Tasmania Kid is definitely a placeholder for Snarl and my custom Grimlock from Unicron9 is definitely the crown jewel of the Maximal shelf. 1000004170.jpg

    It's kinda funny. Torca is the only Fuzor left unsold. I thought he'd be first to go. Maybe people are too scared to buy one in case it breaks.

    Do you have TM2 Megatron's legs like that intentionally or did you just forget to straighten them out in bot mode?
