See this? It's me being insanely jealous of you.
I didn't even know there was a more show accurate set! I've only ever had bootlegs of the original rattrap and terrorsaur. I only got heavy duty into beast wars until about transmetals/fuzors/transmetals 2 (yeah I know right? So unfair) but I had made some odd choices before that (snarl, magnaboss, drillbit). Thanks to stores like KBtoys I was able to get tm primal and megatron as well as depth charge and rampage. So I missed out on a lot of the first release figures and those were my favorites too. I know everyone else likes the transmetals the most, but for some reason I like the originals more. I think they just looked more iconic or something. They'll always be what I think of when I think of Beast Wars.
Luckily the reissues have brought down the prices of guys like Primal and I've been getting the originals misb dirt cheap on eBay. Unfortunately Rattrap and Terrorsaur are the main 2 in demand figures that haven't gotten rereleased besides scorponok. I repainted my yellow and pink terrorsaur to be more show accurate, both are pieces of crap though. Rattrap came with two left (or right) hands on BOTH knock offs I have of him, and they're not made by the same bootleggers, one has painted rat feet the other doesn't along with some other minor differences. I couldn't believe how crappy they both are, their joints always falling off. So I finally bought a loose rattrap on eBay missing a rat foot and a gun just because I finally had to have him. It's funny because I JUST bought it, and haven't even received it yet, when you posted this.
Sorry this is long winded, I should just say "great score" and be done with it. I just like to ramble.

Actually Id never noticed this set either. Now i want one, my Terrorsaur is missing his gun anyway and my Rattrap has been repainted to be more show accurate. Actual show accurate versions would be great! Thanks for sharing this with us.
