The Beast Wars series is interesting in the way that toys from seasons 1, 2, and 3 tend to differ immensely from one another. In the first few waves of the series, transformation was fairly simple and the contrast between "organic matter" and "robotic parts" was more noticeable. Then things kind of got bizarre with Transmetals, Transmetals 2, Fuzors, and those weird ones where an animal transforms into another animal (forgot its sub-line, but a stupid idea nonetheless.) Even so, these toys might interest you:
- Optimus Primal bat
- Optimus Primal gorilla
- TM Optimus Primal
- Ravage (super rare)
- TM Cheetor
- Megatron T-rex
- TM Megatron
- TM 2 Megatron
- Dinobot (really love this character)

Sure do! Here is the most up-to-date snapshot of my Optimus Collection:
Quite frankly, I think RID Optimus is the tallest figure I am willing to collect, because relatively taller toys tend to stick out like a sore thumb.

I was going to PM you to express my interest, then I learned (through browsing the Interweb) of Destructicon Scourge! So I managed to procure both RID Scourge and Destructicon Scourge on eBay! Pretty exciting, I think, considering they will both look nice next to one another. Thank you though for helping me expand my collection.
THANK YOU ALL!!!
