    This masterpiece figure of the first version of Beast Wars Megatron looks so good I can't wait to see how a Masterpiece Transmetal Megatron looks, that one was my favorite version of the three, but I do like this!

    A lot of the text is cut off so it'll be hard until we get some actual scans. From what I can see it's mostly just stuff like "no robot parts visible in beast mode", "the show accurate big size makes Convoy look like a child", "these are the pictures that will be used on the packaging", "comes with adapters to use Megatron with Dinobot's base", "the voice chip will play Megatron's most famous lines at random" etc. nothing really earth shattering.

    Now if only his legs and T-Rex head could be removed so all his beast mode kibble could combine into the actual T-Rex like Big Convoy.

    I agree that real life tarantulas and black widow's don't look the same, but they do in Beast Wars. If you go and watch the show, you see that the only difference is that Tarantulas is slightly bigger and has slightly different legs. Other than that, they're pretty much identical.

    The robot modes however are completely different. I agree with you on that. They have similar beast modes and transform in a similar way, but turn into very different robots. That's why I never said they'd be retools, only that they'd share some common engineering.

    While I do agree that the beast modes are pretty similar, Blackarachnia's butt is quite a bit bigger than Tarantulas'.

    Wait, doesn't Dinobot already have a Golden Disk?

    By the way, we got G1, G2 (via repaints), and Beast Wars in the Masterpiece line now. I wonder how much longer it'll be until we see Armada characters?

    There are two golden disks. One from the NASA Voyager space probe, dinobot stole that one from megatron, and second was of a completely alien nature to both humans and transformers.
