    Agreed, he is the worst Beast Wars character by a 'country' mile. However he's super unlikely as he wasn't in 'Beast Wars' in Japan, he was in Beast Wars Metals. No choice would upset me but the least exciting from season 1 will always be Scorponok for me, a boring idiot with a boring goofy design who I'd feel obliged to pay for just for completions sake.

    I hope Waspinator or Terrorsaur is next. Finally got TransArt Transmetal Optimus and finally picked up MP41 all should come in the mail at the same time as MP 50. Up to date on all the releases, finally. I just hope Jiang XingToys Tyga Eagle looks as good as TM2 Megatron. I'm very excited though in general, the cast gets ever closer to being completed.

    I know it’s completely off the subject of this thread so sorry about that, as you spoke about the jiang xing tygaeagle, I assume we won’t be getting any 3rd party Panels this year now will we as tfcon in October has been moved to next July. The reason I ask is because we did get the 3rd party panels put online at march’s tfcon earlier this year but nothing for july’s.

    Would love a Depth Charge. Was always my favorite. I havent bought any of the masterpiece BW but would spend the bucks for him.

    I was gonna say, I love Quickstrike and he's easily one of my favorite characters in the show, I'd love an MP of him.

    I think Airazor will be an interesting release. She's almost as "impossible" as Terrorsaur is, but she doesn't have the popularity. If we were to get her early it'd be a nice indicator that they were committing to the entire season 1 cast at least. Especially if they don't half ass it. Like here's the least likely character for you all to get, and we went big with the engineering on it too.

    With Tigatron coming in a week or so, I got it at a steal from Amiami, I want to think that a Pink Needlenose will be coming next!

    So from another thread I just had an idea:

    Does Inferno need more than one faceplate? If they included a single faceplate that could open and close it's mouth, like with Dinobot, would that not cover all of Inferno's expressions?

    Unlike Dinobot, or other characters, he didn't really have a large variety of expressions. He didn't really smile or frown. His mouth was either open or closed. His mouth moved very "muppet-like", where basically his jaw moved very stiffly.

    If you can close his mouth for "Neutral" and then open it for "crazed", I feel like that covers 98% of scenes of his.

    I would actually be interested in going through the episodes and seeing if he has more expressions than I remember, but that's kind of the impression I have of him.

    Yes, his mouth was very puppet-like, but his eyes/brows were the ones going crazy, if I recall correctly. Maybe they should do interchangeable eye sections and leave the mouth as is? Although knowing TT they’d still do full alternate faceplates anyway.

    So what if instead of intechangeable face, we had something like MP dinobot in raptor mode has, where the eyes could change. If you had an opening and closing mouth with changing eyes, I think that would work great.

    True, although I think you could work in only two eyebrow expressions that way. Ideally, he should have standard eyes, intimidating eyes and surprised eyes (think of when he was killed alongside Quickstrike by his Queen with the Nemesis).

    I want multiple face plates. Otherwise you’ve just got a South Park Canadian.

    There are plenty of minor manipulations to his eyes, brow and upper lip section to create different expressions.

    Anyone think TT jumps to season 2 without finishing 1? Would like 1 to be completed but wouldn't mind a TT MP TM Megatron sooner rather than later.

    Quick Question: Does anyone know the latest on MP-34 being re-released at BBTS? I see it says October.

    Any day now?

    I didn’t hate Quickstrike but he was easily the blandest character in that he was just a typical mook. If he didn’t have the cowboy speech pattern there’s be nothing to him. (Reminds me of how Aaron Archer I think once said the Cybertron characters were given accents because their personalities were so bland, so it gave kids something to emulate in play)
