Did Bulkhead seriously just say, "We could have 'Beast Wars' on our hands?" :roll:

Oh, if only that were true, Bulkhead. Then we could have, ya know, good writing, good animation, good toys, etc. Instead another round of the same old tired Autobots and Decepticons run around.

The main line of toys and the show lineup seem so disjointed. Cyberverse, on the other hand, is doing a pretty good job.

Wonder if this will mean that we'll see the other cast members like Arcee get new paint jobs?

Sorry, but Beast wars wasn't the greatest in terms of writing. As far as animation goes, cell vs CGI is a matter of opinion. Some of the CGI in Beast wars was amazing but looks childish now compared to Prime. As for toys, well... can't argue with you there. The characters in the cartoon look amazing, the Prime toys for the most part have been... well they are lack luster to say the least

Come on now, I JUST GOT the regular Smokescreen toy and he's already in new colors?!

I am not a fan of late series repaints (looking at you RiD & Unicron trilogy)

Right there, is yet another strictly-Cyberverse deco that we'll probably never get in Deluxe form.

One of two things could happen. We can get Smokescreen's new deco in the Transformers GO! line, or he and Bee will be convention exclusives. Either way, I'll need a new shelf for the Beast Hunters upgrades. :BANG_HEAD:

I only agree with "good writing," which Prime progressively seems to lack.

Prime's animation is more advanced and smoother than Beast Wars'. Prime also uses texture in the animation models (battle scars and scratches, weathering, etc.), or more of it, rather than bland meshes with some metallic "shine."

Because Beast Wars had absolutely no crappy toys and were all Masterpiece-grade gems while Prime has a bunch of shellforming bricks. Both toylines had their share of great and terrible toys. What's wrong with Prime's earlier toys?

Good ole Hasbro! Getting us with one colour only to change the character after a few appearances (not a repainted new character) and hitting us with a G1-esque/Alternators colour scheme!
Why didnt we get this first time Hasbro? :-?

With Transformers Prime concluding after the rather terrible looking Beast Hunters run, how long will it take before fans/collectors are boxing up the short lived Prime figures, making room for more Generations/30th Anniversary figures? :-?

Well, on the bright side if they do release the newly coloured smokescreen in toy form I may just re-purpose my current Smoke as Prowl with some mods, paint, and reprolabels like in the recent creative roundup (although mine will be inferior...)

Plus, if they did introduce Prowl into the show (which I doubt, but...), he wouldn't look exactly like Smokescreen with only a few colour differences - this will make them more dissimilar which is good.

I can see it now:

Miko: "Hey Smokescreen!"

Prowl: "Uhh, actually Miko, I'm Prowl. Smokescreen is blue now, remember?"

Miko: "Oh. Yeah sorry about that, it's just that you..."

Prowl: "I know, I know. I 'look just like he used to.'"

Miko: "Yeah, but a lot. A lot. Was their a sale on white paint?"

Prowl: "Sigh."

Yeah, What the heck... if Smokescreen gets a blue repaint I have to buy it on principle. I guess that makes the inevitable Prowl reprolabel job on the white one easier.
