    So are you aware they had a comic line? It was vastly different from the original concept, and transtech became a multivariate hub. So transtech could also work as a generations line with a few transtech sprinkled in

    Edit: yeah, im aware there weren't like enough for a whole straight line, but they could be sprinkled in to give us unique interpretations of repeat characters.

    It wasn't really a full comic line. Just cameo appearances, in a hub world through the Shattered Glass storyline.

    Holy that Megatron is amazing. They knocked him out of the ballpark. God, I hope Galvatron is just as good

    What was the original concept for animated called? Hero or something like that I think. That had some cool designs that could fill out a future transtech line

    I'm hoping he's old leader size, but I really doubt it.

    I want Animated Hotshot to get made so bad.

    Im digging the new BW stuff cuz imma gettin pretty tired of the G1 overload.... But thats NOT condoning any Armada, Energon, or Cybertron nonsense! :lol 

    Maybe its the fact that they revealed Cyclonus NEXT to these BW toys... Im just not interested in Cyclonus now! :lol 

    Wait for a 3P version. It'll happen.

    Personally, I have no space for giant TFs (other than the Titans, of course!). U could pair this Megs with Legends scaled BW toys, no? (I.e. 3P legends BW, until Hasbro decides to pick up that scale as a permanent size class again).

    With Galvatron coming too, going to be a whole lot of purple in this line.
    Looks nice though.

    Despite the Beast Wars designs never being my favorite designs, I actually think these figures are quite good looking. They look like the characters while being modernized just a bit. I like seeing them with more panel lines and texture and whatnot. We see that a lot with the G1 cast...but I rarely see the Beast Wars characters in a more modern context. I especially think Megatron looks cool, I kind of wish that toy came out when I was a kid and going through my dinosaur phase.

    I think Cyclonus looks okay. I honestly think the 2008 Universe toy (I have the purple 2010/11 version) was a fantastic toy and still holds up well. This looks like a slightly more clunky version of that to me. I definitely won't be getting him because I don't need to replace my Cyclonus...but it doesn't look like a bad toy by any means. I've always liked Cyclonus' design, so it's always nice to see new toys of him.

    Yeah, I think the time for those kinds of leader class figures are past, although I don't mourn them that much. They were really hit and miss, titans return for example had three leader molds, the Blaster one was great I think, Overlord was alright, and Sixshot was a mess. The Wfc trilogy ones were really fun to play with even at their smaller size, and if we need a toy of a really big character we have commander class. Like TR Overlord was good, but he would be much better suited to commander class, even when compared to the old leader sizes of the Prime wars trilogy. I'd personally have smaller, better toy for my £50 than a bigger, underwhelming one for the same price. Not to say I would be happy getting a Minibot for leader class price, we have to draw the line somewhere, but compare ER Optimus with Potp Optimus and Potp Optimus looks so cheap and clunky in comparison, despite it being less than 2 years since it's release.

    I'm really impressed with the visual direction Hasbro have taken with the BW Megatron, like the dino head looks so beautifully sculpted it made me excited for Primal, Rhinox and Dinobot as a result. I can't wait to see Rhinox specifically, I think he will look great.
    I almost like Cyclonus, but it's not the sculpt that bothers me, it's the colours. I guess I just dislike Cyclonus in lavender, because I'm really fond of the Universe Cyclonus' colours. Idk, just makes him stand out more to me, and it looks great in person. I'll probably get this one and paint him up in black and silver as an homage to the Universe one.
