I literally let out a high-pitch choral note for a good long while upon laying eyes on that beauty.

Man, that toy looks perfect. I hope they take liberties with the "Deluxe" scale here so that he won't be as big as Cheetor and Dinobot from '09.

Love that it's his original "organic" rat body, always preferred those to the Transmetal and later ones (although TM Megatron and Tarantulas had awesome bot modes). But it kinda bugs me that the rat head doesn't really look like a rat head, instead it looks almost dog-like.
But if he has his cute little rodent mouth instead of 90s EXTREME GRIMACE! all is forgiven.

OH MAI PRIMUS
BOUGHT!
Although for once I wouldn't mind if this deluxe was a little undersized.

You have to give it to HasTak - they've really been hitting these "Beast Wars" figures out of the park!

Allow Rattrap to join Rhinox and Waspinator in this reaction:

For those who doubted:



Anyway...

So the unveiling of Rattrap, combined with the Amazon listing of Tankor, pretty much confirms we're getting those two along with Crosscut and Nightbeat. Whether they'll be redecos or completely new toolings is anyone's guess (well, besides Rattrap, obviously).

If there's one thing I have to harp about, it isn't about the figure itself (I just can't look at it from a negative perspective, it's that good): it's the fact that we have a total of four Maximals (counting Dinobot) and one Predacon for the Classics and other affiliated lines. I just hope that the "Beast Wars Megatron from Fall of Cybertron Grimlock" prototype makes it into reality. :PRAY:

My initial reaction exactly.

Not a fan of how I can see his tail poking out of his bottom, and the entirely translucent handgun seems pointless. If my eyes doth not deceive me though, it looks like he also has opening forearm flaps like his show character model did. I wonder if there's any other reason to that than fanwank, cuz I'm not sure anything would fit in them.

I was waiting for this day for SO long... I always wanted the original Rattrap figure, but I never found it in stores when I was a kid. And now... this is going to be so awesome.

Rattrap's face = "Who farted?!"

jk, looks very nice. For those collecting the Beast Wars stuff, this must be heaven. Cool that the rat legs look to be poseable too.

Despite the fact that he was mostly a shellformer, he was awesome. The guns splitting and hiding in each rat body side was very clever.

Well, it's definitely not perfect/100% show accurate, but it's pretty damn good. I'll definitely be buying it.

I just hope his beast mode doesn't have those robo-parts like the version of him shown in that Transformers mobile game did. That would be a real shame.

And yeah, that gun needs some paint. Shouldn't be too tough to take care of that though. Just a bit of silver, gray and bronze/copper should set it right to make it look like the show.

Eh, Cheetor and Dinobot from Universe weren't so great, but the BW Generations figures seem to be a GIANT step up. Want this one BAD. Hope they keep going with the BW updates, I'd LOVE to see... Okay, well, the entire rest of the cast.

EDIT: Given the general reaction to the reveal, I'm surprised nobody's said this yet.

We're all gonna buy. :grin:
