It kicks ass. I'm also amazed they used the BW mold.

Also, it kicks ass.

I've never been a fan of this character, or this mold. Glad plenty of people are, though - mine should be easy to sell :D

I will always despise the way Beast Machines interacts with other areas of TF continuity (hydrofracking is a perfect analogy for how the organic core was retconned in to make its story work), but DAMN, I never thought anyone would retool-deco the Dirgegun mold into something this awesome!

And if they keep using at least one Japanese Beast Wars mold per subscription batch, it can only get better. Maybe repaint fellow Cyber-Beast Thrustor all silver to represent the Cyber Raptors from 'Cutting Edge'...though that'd be a troop-builder, and therefore more appropriate being released as such at Botcon.

I'd also like to see Archadis with plumage in completely different colors. I love that mold, but it seemed a shame that in the first wave of BM deluxe Dinobots, Airraptor was the only one without a major color scheme change; mostly gold just lightened to yellow, and I hate gold because it makes me think of photodegredation and urine, so Archadis is ironically one of the few JBW toys I haven't been willing to shell out for.

Actually, most of the BW Neo Destron molds could have new character possibilities after AofE. Granted, a few of them have been repainted to death by Hasbro already.

Pretty fugly, but still worth having on my small Beast Wars shelf as an oddity.

How else would you call a combination of "Thrust" (the BM motorcycle dude) and "Waspinator" (the original)? Besides, in-fiction he's self-named and Waspinator isn't exactly the brightest bulb around. :lol:

I don't know, GoldRabbit maybe? :)

Better than "Thrustinator". Sounds like some sick German sex toy or something.....

Actually, GoldRabbit is kinda cool......

Still better than Nexus Maximus. That one never gets old.

And I am thinking of (finally) changing my name here actually. I haven't had any gold on me for years, it's all flaked off. :lol:

If I have the cash at the time, I'll buy it off of you. This guy is the only figure I'm interested in.
