So these are just straight up (minor) repaints then?

They look nice, but nothing too exciting. I guess if you missed out on either figure, they might be a good deal, but I don't know what they're running for on ebay...

I see no need for these after the BWX repaints/remolds. (exclusive to TRU in the US) They were the definitive versions of these two molds.

Just because you can do something...

Beautiful figures.

They would be must buy's if they had not been released half a dozen times since the turn of the century.

No. They not just repaint and remold.
They have enlarge the figure, bigger than before , more detail.
And a mask that can put on figure's face.

But... nothing has been remolded from the original releases. They're painted differently sure. The BWR set had remolded stuff, these do not. I still don't quite grasp why these are out exactly.

I'm just wondering, what's the protocol for getting news items front paged?

I started a thread about the website update almost 2 weeks ago, but I just chalked a lack of responses to a dying interest of Beast Wars repaints. I also posted eBay listings I found selling the new figures (I wasn't the seller).

Who should one pm about news items?

There is none, just hope your thread get noticed. PM'ing any member of the News Crew may help, but keep it reasonable. Also be sure you're up-to-date by searching through the news archives. We sometimes get so-called "news-worthy" threads with the news posted several weeks ago.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

Yup, Jelze is right. Send us any news items if you have them. You can submit them here: http://seibertron.com/contact/index.php?subject=news, which can also be found under the "Contact Us" drop down menu at the top.

We try to check the forums every day for threads regarding news articles that members find. However, sometimes news related articles can be overlooked, especially if they are buried in a thread or if the thread has a title that is misleading.
