And from left field, we here at Seibertron.com are pleased to present to the public new galleries of Beast Wars: Transmetal 2 Maximals Nightglider and Stinkbomb, and their Predacon nemesis Spittor! These suckers, part of the 1999 line-up of Transmetal 2 Basics, may look familiar to those who are fans of the Robots in Disguise (2001) fiction... these characters are the predecessors of popular Robots in Disguise stooges Predacons Dark Scream, Gas Skunk, and Slapper, respectively. As always, take a peek at the preliminary images below, and if you'd like to view the full gallery of each character, click either the links or the images of each character to be taken to the full gallery of the respective toy!

Bit of trivia: Dark Scream's fit holes are wider than Nightglider's, as Dark Scream's sword was made thicker than Nightglider's.

Or at least, that's how it was for my Dark Scream and Nightglider.

What? She can already see the comments that'll be posted for the future Snapper gallery? And here I thought Windblade, of all fembots, would avoid the female-character-amongst-a-predominantly-male-cast-with-a-poorly-defined-intuition-power trope...

Speaking of changes to Nightglider, has any evidence ever surfaced that he was originally supposed to be an Archeopteryx, but got a new head(s?) at the last minute? That's just what he always looked like to me, what with the tail shape, and his wings looking so much more like feathers than flaps of skin.

And yes, I already knew about Archadis' existence when I formed this theory 15 years ago.

And there WAS a running change to my all time favorite TM2, Spittor?!? Damn, I may have to start Beast Huntin' again.
"Toilet-Brush of Omens, give me sight-beyond-sight!"

Oh, and have any Transmetal 2s displayed the same flaking problems as their predecessors?

Sooner than later for some of them. BWR Tankor, Thrust, Jetstorm, Obsidian and Strika are at the top of my list and I hope to have them completed before the end of the year. I am looking for decent prices on Savage Noble and Megahead Megatron and have not acquired them yet. If I recall correctly, the rest of the figures are basically identical to their Hasbro releases.

The Beast Wars Returns figures that are the same as their Hasbro counterparts are Convoy, Cheetus, Rattle, Nightscream, and Megatron. All the others are redecos.

Yep, pretty much all of the Deluxe Vehicon drones are different in the Takara BWR releases (and incidentally are typically more show accurate to represent either the drones or their Vehicon General counterparts). I have the Takara Beast Wars Returns versions of the motorcycle drone, tank drone and Strika as Vehicon generals Thrust, Tankor and Strika on my shelf. I'll be using the Takara Generations Tankor as my general once I get that though. I have BWR Jetstorm but I don't believe he's very different (if at all) compared to the US release.

The differences are minor, and best explained here:

BM Jetstorm entry on TFU.info (scroll down for variants)

i know all about tfu, so that was a big DUR moment for me.

he has some subtle (but very nice) differences. his secondary (or tertiary i dunno) color of plastic is like, seafoam green instead of red. no yellow on the face. and those yellow/orange lines on his abdomen are blue instead. very nice. ill have to get him now!

90% of all his gray plastic was also changed to blue. That's a pretty substantial difference.

right right! i noticed that but forgot to mention it.

i wonder if it suffers from the flaking chrome as bad as his hasbro counterpart. i recently acquired a MISB ultra jetstorm, and his chrome is all cracked and ready to fall off inside the box. not to mention my original jetsorm shared the same fate :-(

Hey Ryan, I'm sorry to be beating a dead horse like this, but in your latest Beast Wars/RiD galleries I notice that while you have comparison shots aplenty between the various versions/variants etc., there is actually no information whatsoever either in the images nor the galleries themselves (nor links to) regarding what figures you're actually comparing them to, who released them (Hasbro, Takara etc.), in what lines they were released (i.e. Beast Wars or RiD in this case) and where the galleries for those figures they're being compared to can be found (no cross-linking).

I'm not necessarily asking for all of that (though it would be ideal), but at least one aspect of that, particularly cross-linking the galleries. At least for cases like this where both galleries exist at the same time/were created relatively close to each other (I assume less effort on your part that way since you don't have to dig through old galleries to find each version etc. to cross link them).
