Rated X wrote:I understand where you guys are coming from. But the idea is just too "left field" for my taste. I have never seen the series where "transmetals" were a part of. I have only watched the regular Beast Wars Seasons 1-3. What it the name of the series so I can check it out ? Im assuming it's a Japanese series with sub-titles. Or was it made in Canada like the original Beast Wars ???
Anyways, I always felt that there are repaints that work and then there are lazy repaints/re-tools. Some are from Hasbro, TFCC, and some are 3rd parties. For me this is one of those lazy repaints. They could have put "dreads" on Delicate Warrior or Valkarie and painted it black and purple. Some people would have loved it and used it as a excuse to broaden their horizon on mixing continuities. Not me. I snubbed the pink version of Motobot and bought the blue Version. She sits on my classics shelf proudly as Chromia who actually was a motorcycle in the toy line. I totally disregard the fact that it was supposed to homage TF Prime Arcee. I guess you cant take the G1 out of me.
so, you're saying that you never saw any Transmetals in the Beast Wars cartoon? I'm assuming that when you say you "watched" them, you mean you bought the DVDs and put them on a table to see if they'd magically do something all by themselves?
Oh, and Chromia wasn't a motorcycle in the original toyline. Or anything else, for that matter. She was a cartoon only character for quite some time.
Maybe we can't take the G1 out of you, but we could certainly take something else out of you if you keep posting uninformed opinions like these as fact.
For what it's worth, from these pics, I'm actually a little let down by this. I'd thought the idea was a good one, but I'll have to see coloured pictures before I sign up. Still haven't gotten my hands on either flavour of the first Motobot yet, but looks good.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
