    I had a good long laugh when I opened the set and this piece came out as a liner. I had assumed that it was a box-in-a-box situation. I'm not mad or anything, it's just really funny to me.

    The figures themselves are rad too.

    That last image is sexy AF.

    Is Transmetal Waspinator the best unused Beast Wars design? Of the Transmetals, I would say so.

    Just got an email from BBTS that I'm about to be charged for both the Dinobot/Tarantulas and Airazor/Inferno two-packs. I am so excited, but also am going to have a hard time justifying both purchases to my better half. It wouldn't be a thing if I had them spaced out a month or so, but ohh well. When Beast Wars are concerned, ask for forgiveness, not permission. Hahaha

    No way, Transmetal Terrorsaur is the winner of the unused guys. Then Scavenger. Then Waspinator. Then Airazor. And Rhinox holding up the rear. (with the mcdonald's guys far, far behind)

    Nah I agree with him, Waspinator was best. Especially with that third mode. Shame they never released it in a Starscream deco...

    I’m legitimately amazed that Botcon didn’t do it back in the 90’s.

    Wow that’s beautiful! I always loved the look of that mold and Waspy became a seeker. Too bad none of the modes peg together very well.

    I suggested that to them over and over.

    Yeah, huge missed opportunity. Would've been a super popular one.

    And for the story, they could've just had him be from an alternate timeline where Waspinator got transmetalized while he was still possessed by Starscream, fusing the two together permanently.

    Holy molly I never knew I wanted something so much. That's amazing and perfect. A great blend of both and a perfect explanation of that mode from the episode, sort of life Optimal's modes and new look stemming from Prime.

    I love this beyond words. Is this a real repaint, or digital? I'm plebeian and can't tell. But God dang that's gorgeous

    Got Dinobot/Tarantulas in today and shipped my Airazor/Inferno from BBTS as well. Disappointed that the DNA Dinobot hands don't match the new Dinobot, but that was a longshot anyway, so now I've got a complete DNA upgrade kit for Dinobot/Blackarachnia/Scorponok that I really don't need anymore haha

    Damn, I've had similar experiences with pulling the trigger too early. In my experience, contacting customer support has been helpful at halting the shipping process to get those last minute items in the shipment if it's the next day or so. Mileage may vary, but definetly worth a shot to ask.
