    TM2 Megatron... Cohrada... Maybe next time around.

    Now don't get me wrong, I am really looking forward to Year of the Snake Optimus and Omega. I'm even one of the few that liked Year of the Dragon Optimus Prime. But I would really like to see some Beast Wars love accompany some of the big boys. Why NOT have Mach Kick and/or a hornless Battle Unicorn (a la "A.S.S. 09") along with Year of the Horse Weaponizer Optimus or whatever is decided upon???

    Just some future ideas...

    Sheep: Ramulus
    Dog: K9
    Rat: *insert favorite Rattrap figure here*
    Ox: I would think Bighorn/Bonecrusher or BM Longhorn would suffice
    Tiger: Universe Cheetor
    Rabbit: Stampy or Moon anyone?!
    Monkey: ..... Sure. Optimus Minor is great and all, but how about a good ol' fashion "Truck not Munky / Munky not Truck" bitchfight 2 pack!?! G1 Optimus mold (music label head) VS the 10th Anniversary Optimus Primal mold... Hell, swap color schemes on 'em!

    Feedback? Anyone have any ideas for Years of the Pig and Cock*?

    * no trouser snake jokes... Up to and including "Is that a Cohrada in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?" and such.

    Well, Ratrap works for Cock, as he is a bit of a chicken. Also, trouser snake? What does that mean?

    Chicken and Pig would need brand new molds, probably.

    Razorbeast?! I'm an idiot! That's perfect!

    ... Maybe a Foghorn Leghorn repaint of Airazor for the Rooster?

    DOTM Laserbeak for rooster?

    Or use Cybertron Optimus. Those giant wings of his and the super mode crests on his head might work well.

    You could always go the Japanese Zodiac route where the Rooster becomes "generic bird".

    Anyway, I think my personal Chinese Zodiac TFs would be like this:

    Rat=Ratrap
    Ox=Longhorn
    Tiger=Tigatron
    Rabbit=Stampy
    Dragon=TM2 Megatron
    Snake=Cohrada
    Horse=Mach Kick
    Ram=Ramulus
    Monkey=Optimus Primal (or Optimus Minor)
    Rooster (Bird)=Airazor
    Dog=K9
    Pig (Boar)=Razorbeast
