    Except the japanese dub pretended there was no romance until they literally couldn't...and then turned her back into a female for the manga. Still better than Nightscream who they turned into a gay joke.

    The night before last, I dreamt of various cool movieverse toys and woke up to a lame BB/Stinger reissue. Last night, I dreamt of a Tigatron reveal and woke up to exactly that. Hazzah!

    Honestly, he's exactly what we had been told he was; Cheetor but done right. I'll say the colouring doesn't look the best and I feel the fur sculpting could be a bit better (felt the same about Cheetor) but overall, it looks good. Was never expecting weapon storage, since so many other Maximals skipped it.

    Skipped on the MP because it priced me out. Think this one came out well and will fill my Tigatron gap

    I must be getting old because the amount of people who didn’t know about Airazor’s gender flip in the Japanese dub is kinda surprising. It feels a bit like basic knowledge, but I guess it really isn’t. Just funny to see people not getting the jokes.

    I knew about this but I don't think its common knowledge since its kinda inconsequential. The romance was important but it didn't impact the plot. The way romance was portrayed in BW was always through dialogue, so it was also easily removed.

    Secret Weapon Storage was fun and was an icon of the early kenner era flip changers. Respect 90\'s Beast Era greatness! (As well as all of it\'s early 2000\'s repaints that nobody seems to care about except me!)

    So what? These aren't the old toys. The old toys had their own designs that weren't being designed in mind to match up with a character design on a show. The toys did their own thing, and the show tweaked it. Today, these toys are aiming for an accurate portrayal of those show designs and in a mainline budget, some things are just not going to happen. So I'd rather they don't compromise a toy's design to fit a rather huge weapon into an alt mode. You like compromised toys? There's a Kingdom Rhinox with that design philosophy all over it.
