The only thing about this I'm somewhat excited about is an actual mold for Smokescreen. Even extra crap on him is a slap to my face. Why is it that an awesome series have such a crappy toyline?

Wow, this series looks truly terrible. It's like Transformers Gen2 and Beast Machines had sex and this is their offspring.

I'm starting to wonder if Hasbro needs to give their TF brand a long needed break so they can try again at a later time when they have an actual good idea for this series. Transformers hasn't been worth collecting since Binaltech/Alternators.

Looks like a new mold to me. The hip and wing placement seems different from the FE.

But it's another easy pass for me. 2 out of 8 figures revealed in this line so far are only maybes. I'm definitely going to be saving some money this year.

Beast Hunters seems to be destined to fail. The whole "beast" concept wasnt liked by everyone back in the 1990's. I think bringing it back will slow down the momentum of the TF franchise.

Would have to see better picks, but looks Starscream would make a halfway decent Terrorsaur repaint. Also, he comes with Inferno's gun for some reason.

Dear Hasbro design team, thank you for unwittingly saving me a whole lot of money with this crappy, gimmick filled, huge abomination of a series/toy line. You give me and plenty of others great reason to give our money to third party developers who actually make TF's that spark our interests. :grin:

Yeah, it's sad that the most serious and well-done cartoon we've ever had has to go this direction. (ie. more aimed at kids) I'm really hoping the show can hold its momentum and tone while feathering in a few beast characters. That's going to be tough seeing the toys and characters. I'm heavily invested in these classic characters and voices... won't be the case with a bunch of new monster characters.

I think best case scenario, the show has a few one-off shows where they catch or kill some random baddie Predacon by the end of the show... and any other permanent characters added are along the lines of Grimlock, other dinobots, or insecticons. I wouldn't mind a Ravage, either. But if the show just turns into a sudden animal circus... or medieval festival o' dragons... then I'm going to be the first to call it "jumping the shark" at end of season two. #-o

Here's hoping that's not the case.

I don't think a single iteration of Transformers has been "liked by everyone," so that's an empty statement. Beast Wars saved the franchise, after all. And let me say, if my kid self from 1996 got transported to the present day, I would gobble Beast Hunters up. I think it'll do fine.

Yeah, I think the toys will sell fine... but I think CHANGING a show from fairly G1 in nature INTO a beast wars show midstream is a huge mistake. That's why I hope it's done very carefully and delicately. I hope the show characters retain their original designs. I think that one thing would help a lot in maintaining the look and style established so far.

I suppose it's at LEAST a step. I think Hasbro/Takara learned you can't put out three movies (or three seasons) of the same show with the same identical toys. At least we're getting SOME sort of change/upgrade. LOL. Not sure why they can't do a nice color swap like the car brothers in RID. It didn't bother me getting that blue flaming car in red, or the police car Prowl in two colors, etc. Those looked great both ways.

Aaaand, I wish they'd just make Bee talk. I think that would keep him from getting sidelined like he has been by Smokescreen. You can only do so much with an R2D2 character. You get an "awww cute"... and then where do you go from there?

Hey again. I'm TOTALLY just kidding. :-D I actually completely agree with you.

Mind you, I also think that Wheeljack retool is pretty wacky looking, though I picked him up. He looks like a Scooby Doo villain.

That's what I thought when I first saw him. He'd make a pretty good Prime/Classics Terrorsaur in my eyes. Didn't notice the similarity to Beast Wars Inferno's weapon until you brought it up.

Um, guys? We already saw the animation model for Starscream and Soundwave for the Beast Hunters season. They looked nothing like their Beast Hunters figures and exactly like their 1st/2nd season selves. I don't see why people are getting bent out of shape about it.
