    But that's cartoon v toy colors, which I'd assume because Hasbro/Takara used to differentiate between prior to the unified branding.

    The BW guys who share a name with G1 guys, at least on the show, are just that....reused names similar to how there are multiple versions of Prime that aren't all the same prime.

    When it comes to name-shares in the toyline, I think only Magnaboss and Grimlock were ever implied to be the same guys.

    Because 2 characters can have the same name, just like humans

    That's a fair point. The fact that we also have surviving G1 characters in the BW era be established like Prowl, Ironhide, Silverbolt, Arcee, and Ravage to go along with Grimlock will help that goal greatly.

    true but to me that just makes hasbro lazy
    true about the prime thing but there's still questions well some because i know how the maximales and predacons are from the future and the autobots were dead..right? so they wouldn't know they were there but if they took primes matrix did they put it back in him? but we need to ask hasbro about that and everything would be in a loop .the autobot's wake up fight for 3 seasons, the maximales are made who knows when , they go back in time and create the beast wars then millions of years later the loop happens again

    You're not gonna get a Grimlock repaint from BW Megatron but Hasbro is likely to uh...spare no expense on a Megatron repaint, so to speak.

    You posted a hypothetical situation in which an 11-year-old asked if he could get a Scorponok. Are you that 11-year-old?

    Why would they make Grimlock a repaint of Megatron when they have Beast wars Dinobot to repaint into a toy accurate Grimlock. Are you saying that you know this is true.

    Oh I see I came in at the tail end of a conversation about G1 characters as Beast wars characters okay

    People share names. Heck, in continuity BW Megs took the G1 character's name as tribute when he decided to go on the mission that turned in to the Beast Wars.

    It's like if someone named you "Steve" after your Grandpa, or if you named a kid "John" after your favorite President. I like the idea that there can be multiple cybertronians with the same name.

    The Maximals/Predacons would absolutely know the key players in "the Great War." And as far as Prime's spark goes, Primal gave it back at the end of BW S3.

    But that doesn't matter, because Kingdom is taking place in a different continuity where the G1 guys are not only awake, but also the same size as the BW cast.

    This conversation is farking stupid. One toy came out this year and is no longer on shelves, the other is coming out next year. They're also two vastly different price points. And both characters already have the name in fiction, and those were years apart.

    No one will confuse the two.

    Yup. Look at Cyberverse. How many Bees, Megatrons and Primes can they have on the shelf at once?

    Kids aren't dumb. They'll make sure their parents know what they want.
