We have a winner
Actually, Magnaboss was in the cartoon...
...in the Japanese Beast Wars the Second cartoon.
From memory, it has more red paint on it than the US version of the toy. That works out well for FB, who would have bought the paint in bulk.
Remember when this threas was about Beast Wars?
We're having some Beast Wars-related fun while we wait for more news. Feel free to join in.
Related to the topic, I think it would have been brilliant if they'd homaged Beast Machines with the five main Vehicon generals.
Jetstorm as Silverbolt's mold (also would be an amusing extra reference for Beast fans given Jetstorm's spark in BM)
Tankor from Brawl, Obsidian from Alpha Bravo, Thrust from Groove (if Fun Pub had the rights to that mold), and Strika from Rook.
Damn, now I want this set I just came up with.
There's a lot of logic to that. Any thoughts on a name?
Jetstorm from the Cyclonus version makes more sense. Other than that, those are great ideas...
Yeah. I'd dig that. And it would save me from having to buy that awful Machine Wars set just to get Obsidian and Strika. If the add-on sets are not Magnaboss, I'd be OK with this.
Although, I guess this would be like a "What If" BM version of the Vehicon Generals since Jetstorm, Tankor, and Thrust weren't created until BM. And I guess I still need that Obsidian and Strika for my pre-BW shelf either way.
See, I liked Machine Wars, only Botcon set I liked enough to get the whole set of, but to each his own.
Ditto. Bonus points if the combiner has the Diagnostic Drone head. I was originally going to say it should have giant head-ship Megatron's head, but that's more like a Titan Wars toy.
Sorry to bump a thread, but have we seen the combined form yet? I just realized it's been a while and I don't recall seeing it.
Also, I had an idea for the attendee exclusives... What if, in addition to celebrating BW 20th anniversary, they also celebrate RID's 15th? BW vs RID? I just want to see Fire Convoy done before the CW molds get retired...
No combined form yet. They said a while back on Twitter that the combined form would be shown shortly before registration goes live.
So I've been eagerly awaiting the combined form
Honestly I'd be surprised if Takara didn't release that as a Unite Warriors set.
Although that could make a mean SDCC set for Hasbro next year, too.
