    Just noticed my Terrorsaur is stressing/deforming at the neck hinge. Is this a common issue?

    I think this was mentioned earlier in the thread? Something about a pin? But maybe I'm confused

    Hmm pin on my mine doesn’t look to be at an angle. The right side looks to have a lip of mold flash on it that is smashing to the corner and causing the mauling/stressing of the plastic. Might have to punch the pin out and get in there with a file. I don’t think the piece will crack. It just looks unsightly now.

    I think that sounds like the image someone shared. It was before people started showing Dinobot comparisons in this thread.

    Could it be the same problem that were reported by some Japanese collectors?

    Yep, mine has the same amount of damage. Going to have to pop the pin out to see what’s up.

    so now that we've got the entire season 1 cast done. plus an extra set via Waspinator/Starscream.
    do we think Takara could continue this line?
    if so, HOW?

    Tbh, I see them definitely making a 2-pack of blackarachnia and silverbolt in the future. What difference would there be between that blackarachnia and the current BWVS blackarachnia? Idk.

    as for other stuff:
    Probably by either doing more G1 sets like the nemesis bridge set. (Ark bridge set with Prime, Jazz and prowl anybody?). There's a good chunk of cash to be made in regards to that.

    Or they could continue doing more obscure, episode specific sets. Like a redeco of blackarachnia from when she took control of that island. Or a terrorsaur powered-up on energon.
    A Code Of Hero Dinobot would be pretty cool.

    I was thinking TM2 Megatron and Tigerhawk could use a BWV release. But that would be a big box for two leaders. Maybe they'll release them individually.

    There could be a Silverbolt vs Quickstrike set after we get Quickstrike from Hasbro

    On the Dramatic Capture front I hope for a Bad Comedy set with Galvatron, Cyclonus, and a pair of Starscream feet.

    I would definitely be up for BA in that silver color scheme when she was powered up that one episode (bonus points if they include the staff). I guess on the complete other end, you can do one of the heavily battle-damaged decos she had. I'd also be up for that darker-colors evil Rhinox from that one episode.

    If TakaraTomy continues the Beast Wars Again series in the future, Silverbolt would likely be paired with a hypothetical Rampage as TT sticks to the original VS pairing wherever possible.

    The exceptions are characters that were originally paired with non-show characters, and of course the Possessed Waspinator set, as there is no original equivalent.

    Quickstrike was originally paired with TM Airazor, who didn’t appear in the show. So a hypothetical Beast Wars Again Quickstrike could be paired with either TM Cheetor or TM Rattrap, since they were originally paired with TM Waspinator and TM Terrorsaur (who both also didn’t appear in the show).

    Considering how the majority of BW Metals vs packs involved non-show forms (only two out of six didn't), adhering to the Silverbolt/Rampage pairing feels kind of pointless. Hopefully Takara sees that Rampage/Depthcharge makes way more sense.

    Just got my Dinobot/Tarantulas set in today and I have to say as much as I don't like that the knees are black on this Tarantulas release, the QC jump from my OG Legacy figure is leaps and bounds, wow. OG is loose as heck and will still stand, but he will fall under his own weight if tapped. You can even see where they added dimples in the ball joints for friction on the spider legs as opposed to the original's smooth ones. I never owned the original Dinobot because at the time I was holding myself to only buying the MP Beast Wars figures, but it looks like I am going to have to wait 3 lifetimes for those to be done. Anyways, he's pretty great as well. I like the feel of his plastic. I do feel like his metallic blue is a tad too dark on him in comparison to the MP and the show in my opinion. The white lipstick doesn't bother me at all really. He also feels really solid and good. I've heard varying QC issues with other releases so it makes me happy that for once I'm not boned by the QC gods.

    Really happy with this purchase. Unfortunately we are living on one income now so the only way I'd even be able to comfortably afford the entire collection is if I started selling off my old 2000s stash haha.

    There's only one combination of season 2 and 3 Maximals vs Predacons that's I can think of that perfectly matches everyone up based in-show confrontations. But it relies on using Silverbolt as a Predacon from his first couple episodes (where he has a confrontation with Cheetor).

    TM Optimus vs TM Megatron

    TM Cheetor vs Silverbolt

    TM Rattrap vs Ravage

    Depthcharge vs Rampage

    TM2 Cheetor vs TM2 Dinobot

    TM2 Blackarachnia vs Quickstrike

    Tigerhawk vs TM Tarantulas

    Optimal Optimus vs TM2 Megatron


    (Also they should make a new Transmutate build-a-figure)

    That would be great for a Silverbolt + Transmutate + Rampage set like someone suggested.
    One of the highlights of the Beast Wars cartoon that episode.

    Idea i had: expand into bw2.
    Take legacy Needlenose repaint/retool him to make bw2 Dirge. And toss him in a 2 pack with Tasmania Kid.
