The answer to this is simple: This isn't the Beast Wars cartoon continuity version of the character. This is Transmutate from the new Beast Wars: Uprising storyline, which is a completely different universe from that of the cartoon. Depth Charge and Protoform X are likewise part of this universe as well.

Think the G1 cartoon vs. the IDW G1 comics. ;)


Is Transmutate even called by name in the comics?
Yep. Although the comic parsed her name as "Trans-Mutate" (like the BW 10th Anniv. toy and this new toy).
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Oh yeah! Alternate universe.
That's not an answer, it's an excuse. And at that, it's one that can only go so far until it doesn't work.
Sadly for TFCC naming the figure Tansmutate instead giving her an actual name, that excuse doesn't work.

Let's be honest here. It does't work... for you. For plenty of others, it works just fine.

You're missing the point. Transmutate was called the because he/she/it was severely disfigured. If we're getting a Transmutuate that isn't disfigured, why not give her an actual name?
I'm not arguing against their alt-beast wars story at all.
I just find it odd in naming her Transmutate when that name was used for a specific reason.
It doesn't fit.

This one simply has the name for a different reason.

Whether this different reason is as equally valid as the old reason, however, is currently unknown, as that will be determined by the events that unfold within the upcoming "Alone Together" text story.

Its all about character Identification. We keep calling everyone that turns into a red Trucck Optimus Prime, right? How about all the bad guys leading the Decepticons who keep getting named Megatron, the BW guy, the RiD guy, the Armada guy,

"Is someone there? I can sense you, I know you're there. Your spark. It's not like the others. It speaks of your pain. Such sorrow; sorrow blessed with fury. It has a darkness that I can taste. Your torment is not unlike my own. It consumes you. It glorifies you. Embrace it. Shed your mask and embrace who you are. Don't hold in your pain, there's too much to keep contained. You have enough to blanket the world. Let everyone share in it. Let them scream in joyous cacophony. Go. Go with your friends... but have them be the first who see you stop pretending. Show them that you are so much more than 'Trans-Mutate.' And do not concern yourself with me. It won't be long... We will meet each other again."

Still not a member of the official Transformers Collectors' Club? If not, why are you still reading this? Get moving! A quick reminder for everyone, if you'd like to get in on this year's exclusive figure, a retool of the Prime: First Edition Megatron into a pre-Beast Wars Protoform X/Rampage (also representative of the alternate-universe character whose origins lie in the newly-named Club universe Beast Wars: Uprising), now is not the time to dawdle! As always, the deadline is before midnight on 16 March. To get in on the shenanigans, click here!

For our second half of this newsie, the Club also uploaded a new in-hand image of said exclusive Protoform X/Rampage on their website too. The image has been mirrored for your viewing convenience.

Well, the first one to receive a new head was Heatwave (his combiner head, at least). Then you had Runabout/Over-run (or was it Runamuck?). Then we have Rampage. They've been at this incentive figure deal since... 2005? 2006?

So really, only three I can think of. We're not counting the other exclusives, right?

Yeah, it sits pretty high up on that neck due to the way Megatron's head original sat upon it. Megs' head had a lot of hanging parts that covered his neck area, but since Rampage's head doesn't angle that way, it sits up higher and looks proportionally off.

It also has to be small enough to fit through the peekaboo hole in jet mode, so that's another factor. A way they could have possibly remedied this was toy simply nix the horns that stick out from the sides of Rampage's head.

After all, a lot of folks are gonna be using this as a pre-BW Cartoon Protoform X instead of its intended use as Uprising Rampage, and in the cartoon, X didn't have those horns in the past:

So you're proposing removing one of the more iconic visuals of Rampage, from Rampage? #-o

Besides, though the head may be slim from the side, it will probably hopefully seem a tad larger when viewed straight on.
