This makes me optimistic for a Magna Boss and BW Grimlock re-release. A repainted classics Dinobot would make a great sub figure.

Though it likely will not happen, I could use a replacement Silverbolt and Grimlock. Both originals have succumbed to brittle gold plastic syndrome.

We already got a figure of all of the bots pictured alongside Ultra Mammoth:


  • Eagle[/*:m]
  • Lion[/*:m]
  • Elephant[/*:m]
  • Velociraptor[/*:m][/list:u]

    When I saw Beast Wars Shattered Glass I was really hoping for something like including all the Universe repaints of the Beast Wars figures. They pretty much work for this, as do some of the repaints that were done for Armada and Beast Machines (i.e. the Dinobots in Beast Machines).

    edit: And I LOATHE that they're retconing these guys into Autobots. Screw that, they're Maximals. Always have been, always will be. If Hasbro wants to pretend that the Beast Wars never happened, that's up to them, but those figures were all released under the Beast Wars line as Maximals, not as 'Autobots'. :MAXIMAL:

I'm sorry, but this isn't "Shattered Glass" Beast Wars. This is just normal Beast Wars. At least so far. We've always known the Tripredacus members and Grimlock were the Autobots of the same name just reformatted into Maximals. Ripping off Maximum Dinobots isn't at all original either.

I was hoping FunPub would have left Beast Wars well enough alone as far as "Shattered Glass" is concerned. I have very low expectations for this. If this is the new direction they're taking with the comic, then why the hell is this years BotCon set Machine Wars based?! Why not dig out the old BW molds, or even the Cybertron Beast Planet figures, and repaint those in "Shattered Glass" colors. Gah! This just has FAIL written all over it!

I really hope this gets us Universe Dinobot repainted into Grimlock with a new head from the club. I'd happily pay for that.

Note how this isn't in the usual Beast Wars time frame (before the Great Reformatting to be exact) and even after taking their new forms, they still call themselves Autobots. I'd like to see as yet another universal stream under threat of, or at least participating in, the "Invasion" storyline from last year's BotCon.

I don't know how to respond to this... I liked the animated series, mainly because of its tie-in with the G1 cartoon, but I didn't care too much for the comics. I wonder how they will implement Shattered Glass into the folds. Shattered Glass Maximals and Predacons, perhaps? :-?

I was hoping for SG Maximals and Predacons just because it would be great to get some new repaints of some BW figures, but I doubt they're going to do that. We'll just have to wait and see though. If they do a Botcon set like that this year then it will be the first Botcon set I've ever purchased.

This year is Machine Wars, maybe next year perhaps? Though I know a lot of people are sick and tired of Shattered Glass.

In any case, this is obviously taking place before the Great Reformatting, and therefore they still call themselves Autobots. I think someone said that already, but in case it hasn't been said, thought I'd throw it out there. ;)

I, for one, am glad to see Magnaboss getting some love!

Or a second story that is entirely seperate from the TFCC comic.

Ah, gotcha. That kinda makes sense I guess, though as I understand it, none of the Maximals and Predacons on Cybertron prior to the reformatting/Pax Cybertronia had beast forms, just smaller bot modes.

Either way, I'd love to see some Beast Wars repaints/retools in any form if Botcon/Funpub are down to do them, regardless of whatever fiction they choose to justify them with (I don't collect comics, I *do* collect toys ;)).

Of course, there are still a few Beast Wars figures from Botcons past that I haven't yet acquired (from back when it was done by 3H), but I'll get them soon enough. Probably once I've completed a few more of this year's bigger purchases that I have on preorder.

Precisely. :) -What- your altmode is doesn't make you Autobot/Decepticon or Maximal/Predacon; what technology you use (and what size you are) determine that. Maximal/Predacon bodies were notably different, being closer to human size, sturdier, and more fuel efficient.

Yep, which actually makes a lot of sense if you consider that somewhere in the continuity after The Rebirth (premiere of Headmasters/Targetmasters etc.), the Decepticons returned to Cybertron and the war escalated to the point of Bots and Cons upgrading into Powermasters, Pretenders and every other manner of massively powerful (and power consuming) form. The Energon has to run out sometime, it's not a renewable resource :P.

The best reasons for a truce are lack of money/resources for the war to continue combined with the fact that all of the members of the entire race face extinction if they continue to use up their lifesblood (Energon) to continue the battle.

Actuall, its status as a non-renewable or fenewable, depending on continuity. For example, in the Aligned universe, Energon was plentiful before Cybertron shut down.
