$3 cheaper at TCP.
Transform Element TE-MM002 MICE WARRIORS
The lack of wrist articulation + ball joint elbows is kinda killing it for me
For me, Rattrap is the 'king maker' for whether I should get MP or Legends BW.
If there's an upgrade kit to replace the arms (Somewhat decent chance, given the recent BA kit), or MP Rattrap ends up a mess, then I'll definitely be picking him up
Wait, is there an MP Rattrap on the way? Or do you mean "IF an MP Rattrap is made, and it's a mess..."? I don't think I've heard of either an official or 3rd party MP Rattrap being announced. I feel like 3rd party toys aren't on the market forever, and may be hard-or-impossible to get later on. If you're assuming that Takara will eventually give all the Beast Wars characters the MP treatment, I would advise caution; we don't know if they're planning on doing MP versions of all the BW characters, and even if they do, we don't know how long it'll take. This Rattrap might be unobtainable by the time a hypothetical MP Rattrap comes out.
After Megatron, Blackarachnia, and Tigatron, I would expect all the core season 1 cast (at the very least the Axalon crew) to get official MPs eventually. But that's eventually. Who knows how many years it'll take Takara to get to characters like Scorponok or (my number one wish) Airazor.
Pretty sure Takara will get to the entire season one cast.
They only have Rattrap, Rhinox, Airrazor, Scorponok, Terrorsaur, and Inferno to go.
No love for Waspinator, huh?
yea at that point ill just wait on takara honestly
It depends on what you're looking for.
This line allows me a cheaper alternative that I can imagine as a somewhat accurate size compared to my chug toys.
They lack some articulation and some of them aren't completely accurate, but they look the part and are fun toys that also allow me the legends scale experience and thus help keep down the overall size of my collection.
There's no need to justify your choice of scale especially if you are in the correct thread.
the fact that a colleague is inclined to jump from legends to mp on the double, means you already know everything you need to know
yea, ill pick and match. like their rattrap, im ok with the one we have. their BA, ill go with TE as the MP is very fiddly and the price for that size a figure... eeeh nah.
This idea of disregarding scale as an important deciding factor is bizarre to me. If I was in the market for an MP scaled Rattrap, this would not even be an option worth considering. Likewise, since I'm currently in the market for a legends scaled Rattrap, a hypothetical MP Rattrap isn't worth considering.
But if you're totally cool with mixing an matching legends and MP scales, more power to you. There's no wrong way to collect.
I took it more to mean he was deciding whether to collect either all MPs or Legends for the entire line so the quality of each respective Rattrap would be the deciding factor. However as we definitely won’t see an MP Rat at least until mid 2021 that’s a decision that won’t be made for awhile.
That’s why I’m just buying everything!

Nothing really new, but I figured I'd post it here in order to keep the hype alive.

Anybody see that silver repaint of Blackarachnia on TransFan’s Facebook page a few hours ago? I’m curious to see if it’s getting an official release, or if it’s just a custom...
It looks pretty good.
Now that I think about it, silver Blackarachnia is one of the very few times Beast Wars actually featured a straight color swap on the show. Only other example I can think of is predacon Rhinox. Would definitely make sense for TE to take advantage of that with a redeco of Black Widow.
Is this what u are talking about in the background of the new Mirage pics in this link
Transform Element Mirage
think you missed the pics on pg 28 about the new BA redeco with silver arachnid legs?
Yeah just seen these. Count me in for the repaint. Now give me a packrat from rattrap and I’ll be happy.
edit: found another pic on Facebook, I edited the pic to cut out mirage
Even they’re bending Transmutate’s left leg the wrong way.
