    Bring them on!

    I've always preferred Beastformers as they tend to have sleeker and better looking bot modes. If this is better than Perfect Effect and Takara, I will be selling my MP-32.

    However, it looks like we will need to wait another 1.5 to 2 years for these to come out as they are numbered after Defensor.

    Never cared for the organic look of the Beast Wars designs, but I do very much like this styleised, robotic take on Primal. Also, the hope of getting some of those other wicked designs from the art book excites me.

    I'm not really into Beast Wars, but the concept art is pretty cool, and they're mechanical beasts, so maybe I'm cool with it.

    GT-6 is yellow Devy with drills, and GT-8 is Defensor.

    No GT-7 and 9 yet. This is going to be a long wait.

    GT-10, -11, and -12 look to be pretty cool.

    Though I have complicated feelings about taking someone's doujin designs and making them into toys.

    Um, I dont need / want a robotic gorilla. But the cat looks good...

    If the design skews so far from the original source, I'd rather have an original character...

    For beasts, I need LOTS of joints. As animals have organic moving parts that need to be present...

    Transformers T-Beast, only released in Japan AFAIK.

    I'm interested in this line. If this goes well, there's at least seven more designs they can use for future figures (Wheeljack, Jazz, Soundwave, etc.).

    Pretty interesting robotic take on Primal. If this is indeed the start of a new line based off of the Transformers T-Beast designs then I'm all for it. I'm glad they're going for something pretty different as opposed to the same old MP styled lines.

    I never watched Beast Wars cartoon before, so have very few interest in the current Beast war toys, including MPs. Most of the reason is because the beast war's toy is not "robot" enough in beast mode.

    So this line make perfect sense to me, just like Transformers + Zoids, Which I like.
