    Someone on the boards mentioned that TransArt was possibly venturing into G1 territory. I mean, G1 has been done to death already by so many. I’m hoping eventually TransArt will venture back into the beast era and tackle beast machines. Having a show accurate tankor, jetstorm and thrust would be a dream. Even obsidian and strika would be cool. What would also be cool is to have the zombie Megatron that appeared in one episode were Megatron’s spark inhabited the rusting bodies of tarantulas and the helmet of tiger hawk. Would be kind of sick.

    Did that happen? I wasn't really a fan of BM, but I feel like I would have remembered that. I tried looking it up on TFWiki and there is nothing there about it (no mention of Tarantulas at all for BM that I'm seeing).

    It's a brief scene, but yes. Its not actually tarantulas / tigerhawks bodies in the canon, but rather they reused assets when making the show and clearly used parts of their models.

    Has anyone done tests to find out how durable the chrome on Transart figures is? Or found out the hard way? I'm really tempted to go all out buying as many of the releases as I can in one go.

    I find it to be more durable than the regular metallic paint on some.

    Yeah I remember playing with the fully articulated hands of my original 90s Rampage and also how wonderful it was to have his original 90s non-KO crab legs be on his shoulder pads and definitely not on his forearms at all because this guy is basically 1:1 KO of the original so that's where they had to be.

    Too tall at 32cm and not nearly enough improvements over the original to compete with what TransArt will offer.

    Is that too tall? (Not arguing just not sure where he falls scale-wise anymore)

    I'll definitely hold off judgement until we get better pics, really hard to get a sense of anything here yet.

    So 32cm would be 3.5cm bigger than TransArts. Looking at the scale chart, and assuming we'd want this to scale with TransArt's previous stuff, it would be too tall. It should be basically a slight hair shorter than Transmutate, who is 29cm. He should be about a head taller than TM Megatron, who is 26cm.

    Basically, if the chart from two pages ago is to be believed, TransArt's 28.5cm would be basically perfect.

    Ah got ya, that makes sense. Maybe the difference is from the height of the legs rather than the head? But we'll see.

    I agree this looks to be very flat. That being said I am always excited to see more players in the Beast Wars game.
