    Possibly... here's a Zoids tortoise for what it's worth:

    Does that artbook have a Megatron design too?

    I initially said no to these, but if they look good painted then I might be tempted. Especially if they do characters like Soundwave and Megatron and Jazz...

    It would be awesome if someone had the book so we would know (I don't see why there wouldn't be a Megatron in it).

    All we have to go on is a few Pinterest posts and Ebay pictures, sadly.

    What are the odds he's an alligator though?

    Do you have images of the rest of the T-Beasts? I'd love to see them all in their robot modes and alt modes! :) :) :)

    I don't like beast wars and I like the toys even less but I would buy that Sideswipe in a heartbeat.

    I don't have images of the T-Beasts. I just tried to determine the beast alts from images posted throughout the thread. Those images were probably gathered from across the internet.
    Kudos to whoever gathered them so quicly.

    I found some of the alt-mode choices rather surprising,
    Wheeljack as a Wolf, for example.
    Frenzy essentially transforming a Buzzsaw clone was inspried, though.

    I'm not all that interested in Primal, but Rodimus and Sideswipe look interesting. Hoping these are a similar size to MP Primal though, or a bit smaller. If I was to get a group of these designs I wouldn't want them too large.

    I really hope they pick up that Frenzy design though. A G1 Frenzy who turns into one of the cassettes is too fun an idea to miss out on. :D

    Of course they have to make the one Decepticon the coolest of the bunch.

    I am loving the concept, and would be an insta buy if the product could be closer to the lineart.
    That Wheeljack is an insta buy, but feel that Jazz does not work as either animal and should be given a better animal then a horse, and the polar bear just doesn't fit him as a character.

    If you've seen Japanese G1, that joke is hilarious!

    Does anyone know what the name of this art book is called, so that I might purchase it?

    Powerglide is a cardinal probably.
    The other Soundwave may be a turtle.

    I'm sorry what the fuck exactly is Ultra Magnus supposed to turn into? I think I'm fine with my Ultra Mammoth...

    I was thinking that a lot of these designs look like Zoids version of Transformers.

    That is just a ridiculous travesty for a character with such.... gravitas. And no shoulder stacks? What were they even thinking....

    No.. I denounce this.

    Not interested. We don't need more Optimus Primals. I mean, I admire that they're trying a different style to previous toys, but I just don't care for the aesthetic.

    Huh. I have never seen that before. I don't know if I'd say they're pulling it off. That design is much rounder, while this toy is way more blocky. I know this is the sort of thing that's tricky to get right in plastic form, but I just don't like how blocky it looks. I dunno, maybe if it's painted well, I might warm up to it.

    OK, where do these designs even come from? I do like that Sideswipe. Not sure about Hot Rodimus. Looks a bit too brawny for him.
