    Ha well, Polar Claw is my top favorite Beastformer, and I've got the 90's version. I want that guy to show up in Generations so bad it hurts!! I tell my wife about it all the time LOL. So yeah, I want them to bring him in at Voyager size and with Batscout and I'd love to see how they redo that bone-claw attack appendage (especially in the era of Fossilizers!) And on that note, give him some 5mm ports!

    Man I am excited and ranty today...this pic of Buzzsaw really got me started! I was worried for a minute there that BW was kind of on the downhill trend after Kingdom ended, especially since the rumored leaks for Legacy only seemed to have Tarantulus and Inferno (I'm interested in neither). I uh...really hope that this Buzzsaw isn't some crappy fake.

    HELLS YEAH.

    Buzzsaw was like my 2nd or 3rd figure after I started collecting. He's one of the original bunch from my POV!

    I wasn't. It was clear Kingdom was introducing them back in to the fold and ensuring they got some focus by not rushing through the entire show in one year.

    I think the reason why there isn't much Beast Wars in Legacy is because by the time they closed the line up of characters Kingdom wasn't even in production yet. So it couldn't get affected by any sales results from Kingdom. It takes about 2-3 years to create a line for one year. There will be more Beast Wars in coming years. And we can still hope for some cool Beast recolors and retools for Gen selects or some exclusives.

    That's exactly what I was thinking as well, we will probably just see Dragon Megs, Inferno and Tarantulas, then 1 or 2 more BW repaints as exclusives for the first year of Legacy. After that I expect them to steadily go through the rest of the BW cast as Kingdom was a success :D 

    Legacy will honestly be a well deserved break for my wallet as Kingdom (& the assorted 3rd party upgrades) really destroyed mine :lol

    It amazes me how much fans know about the behind-the-scenes of toy production. Anyways, you're giving me a lot of hope...very exciting. Recolors, retools--bring it all on!!

    Also, for some reason I've been pretty dismissive of Dragon Megs up until this point...I'm realizing now that that is probably going to be one awesome figure.

    Hm.

    The black wings are an odd choice, and given we've had a viable Waspinator mould since 2013, it's a shame Buzz Saw has had to wait this long to get a redeco (and that it's a redeco of the inferior Kingdom design). Nice to see a unique head though.

    Aww yeah. Now I had zero interest in Waspinator (already got T30 and its fine) but I'm totally down to having a Buzzsaw. If anything, their different molds will make them feel less identical on the shelf.

    This was inevitable and probably the least enthused I could be about an upcoming figure.

    Cool. I wasn't enthused about Kingdom Waspinator because the Thrilling 30 one is unironically great, but I might just pick up this version of the mold.
    I've had Buzzsaw as a Fuzor and a Beast Machines guy, but I never had the original.

    He will definitely have a place among my Predacons. Maybe I'll collect up the non-show characters into their own little squad. Too bad they didn't make the BWBB Blackarachnia a separate character (yes, I know I can make it whatever I want, but I prefer official).

    I'm sure we'll eventually get a G1 Buzzsaw updated, but man, who else is going to square off and cannon blast Omega Supreme on my display??

    Buzzclaw was the name of the Fuzor.

    Ah you're right, I mistook him for Manterror, who is considered Buzzclaw's pre-Fuzor name.
    Whatever, Buzzsaw becoming Buzzclaw makes more sense to me
