    I agree a Silverbolt/Transmutate/Rampage set would be pretty cool. But then how do you pair up the rest? There aren't enough predacons for the rest of the maximals. Only other option would be to include non-show characters or forms, or to treat TM2 Blacharachnia as a predacon.

    If my speculation around the Transmetals going into the SS line is correct, there won't be a need for more VS packs, because they should already be screen accurate.

    It's a dangerous game being played with Beast Wars figures now. If a new figure is revealed and it's not screen accurate, fans may not buy it, holding out for the presumed VS (or similar) offering that is.

    I would honestly leave Optimal Optimus unpaired as he's most likely going to be a Commander. That would be a big pricetag for a gigantic VS set for no reason when the Commander should be accurate enough. That evens out the cast.
    That's so true and I agree. The more I think about it the more I hope this was a Kingdom thing only otherwise people will wait for the "better" redecos and hurt BW sales. So unless they completely fumble the deco (like in some of the Kingdom figures) then there's no need for more VS sets. And if they do mess it up I hope they redo them individually instead (in a Walmart Cheetor sort of situation)

    Actually it would still leave one other character unpaired. The Maximals outnumber the Preds by two, assuming you don't use either Silverbolt or TM2 Blackarachnia as a Predacon.

    Man, that'd be awesome.

    I just want more Beast Wars stuff in general, particularly if that also includes II and Neo.

    They could always do variant repaints. Like Predacon Rhinox, Code of Hero Dinobot, and The Trigger Blackarachnia for the vs counterparts.

    I think Takara doing them with more paint apps would still happen. But if it takes say 3-4 to get through all the Transmetals I feel like we would wait 6 years for Takara to do their 2-packs.

    I honestly wouldn't mind if Takara did 2-packs again.
    The BW Again sets will have their own display separate from my main Kingdom and Legacy figures

    Anyone gotten the set with Inferno yet? Does he have the two guns? Some in hand shots only showed one.

    It's so one can be used as a gun and the other can be used as his butt thruster without having to choose either or between the two

    Yea, because the figure wasn't intended to have 2 guns, it's an extra that takara included for this release

    Can you pop off Tigatrons head? I want to buy the Amazon one and swap the head from my Kingdom one.

    The entire head, probably so, but you'd have a big orange patch on your otherwise white (and yellow) tiger's neck. As for trying to swap the faces, I had the thought also, but never went to try and take the head piece apart.

    I'd just paint the back of the head. Yeah ideally I'd want to take the head apart but I'm not sure that's even possible. I think the off white head can work since he does have white in some spots or I could paint it.
