While posting in another thread I started to wonder how well the old Beast Wars (and maybe Beast Machines) molds would do if they got a straight re-release today (not updates or redesigns). Not as exclusives or something like that, but as a mainstream release alongside whatever main TF line would be running. Beasts seem to be making a comeback in Transformers so perhaps the time is right. Plus it can't always be just dinosaurs and dragons. It's been a while now since those toys were on shelves and I'm sure many kids will have never even heard of the Beast Wars line, but would still find it really cool and fun. The toys generally weren't overly complicated and the transformations were often fairly simple. Articulation was pretty good too. Seems like they'd fit in perfectly with Hasbro's current 'simpler for the kids' design trend. Maybe the Basics could even be upscaled to Deluxe size if Hasbro fancied. Assuming the molds aren't lost or too wrecked, it would surely cut down costs since they're already fully designed and exist. Plus there's a brilliant show already made and ready to put on telly again to help advertise the line. Terrorsaur's mold is getting a new repainted outing in the AoE line so Hasbro must consider there's some appeal to modern kids there (ignoring the possibility they just reused that old mold to be cheap rather than make something new from scratch). I love the Beast Wars toyline and think it would still hold up really well even today. Perhaps it could even include some old Japanese Beast figures that never made it to America or Europe. Or would you be against the idea in case it jeopardized the possibility of more Generations Beast Wars character toy updates in the future? Perhaps you can see a major stumbling block to the idea that I've not considered. Try not to see it from just a collector's point of view, but from would it fit into today's market for children's Transformers toys? Thoughts? I've also added a simple Yes/No poll to compare.
