    I actually really love Hasbro's Computron. Just... in combined mode only. These individual modes just look embarrassing.

    They're going to be considering the next five years part of the "Beast Wars Anniversary," so as to milk the movie anniversary this year and the show in the future. Still a bit crappy that FunPub is the only one doing anything about it.

    Hardly likely, they've used the name multiple times in 2015. There's no way they lose a trademark that fast.

    thats an impressive sounding set, wonder if they'll use the Takara Legends decos for Arcee, Springer and Magnus, since those were more cartoon-y???

    They'll have new metallic decos. It's probably gonna cost 500 dollars too.

    So what was that last combiner outline they showed... looked a bit like Predaking without wings, but I can't tell if it's that or something else... looks like they're using the hot spot mould though and possibly the Victorion feet?
