Is this gonna be concurrent with the IDW 2.0 continuity or a standalone universe?
Cool, might actually follow this one.
Got to agree with the general thought that it is really exciting to be getting new Beast Wars fiction again.
Thinking on it, executing Under-3 in cold blood might be the most threatening Scorponok's been shown to be since he blasted Dinobot away in the pilot.
Even better, this is great to know.
just realized from the maximal cover, there is no figure for that new bat character in the kingdom line
Aw, man. Seeing Dinobot stop Terrorsaur from killing that guy... man. When I realized who it was, I felt the same sort of awe I’ve felt in recent years when legacy characters came back for new stuff:
* Han, Chewie, Leia, and Luke in TFA
* Iroh in The Legend of Korra
* Mufasa in the 2019 Lion King
* Rexy in Jurassic World
* Woody in Toy Story 3
Man. That meant a lot.
One of the best parts of all this is that Scorponok may have consistent characterization this time around!
Hmm. I'm hoping the art style grows on me in time.
I was kind of expecting "Gnashteeth" instead of Galavar. It makes me feel less like I have to track down a Gnashteeth toy for the collection, though.
Yes Dinobot is back baby!
Where did you learn that?
So uh, did Skorponok kill or stun that maximal? He/she/they look pretty fried to me
He's dead Jim.
Would match Dinobots "..." Reaction too hm :/
You know what when I tried to imagine what BW megatrons real name was I always imagined it evoking his Shakespearean, flamboyant, ego driven personality, I just couldn’t pin it down. We got Gnashteeth, probably a reference to his crocodile form in 1996 but it’s still animal related. Galavar while not the greatest is totally something he would change to Megatron, it’s as if the writers found a way to pin it down and did it well.
This makes me wonder if more characters will receive similar names,hopefully Optimus Primal can be given a backstory, explaining why an average ship captain would be have the name and face of a godlike leader.
Using an obscure character as canon fodder doesn't do much to get me excited for this. Why not use a generic? Why not keep Under-3 open for later?
On the one hand, I get what you mean. He could've been fleshed out and made into an interesting character.
... On the other hand, it's Under 3. I don't think we'll miss too much from him being offed so early.
Did somebody forget their blue text?? Haha. I mean, all the guards there on that page are just different color variations of the Unit 3 figure so... Maybe the "real one" is still out there??
Separate names with a comma.
