Cybertron Longrack. During the Cybertron line, TakaraTomy retooled four Armada molds into homages to G1 and Beast Wars: G1 Blurr, BW Buzz Saw, G1 Runabout and BW Neo Longrack.

Hasbro subsequently brought them to the US, while adding Optimus Prime and Demolishor with retooled keys to the mix. The four were re-released in a single set during Universe 2008, with a redeco of that Prime.

I dug up a few of BW toys, namely Armordillo, Iguanus, and Neo Hydra and thoroughly enjoying their spring-loaded transformations. I also have Snapper and an incomplete Insecticon back home and missing them lots.

I really want to find Buzzsaw. Then he and Longrack can be rivals in vehicle form. Plus, Buzzsaw now has a special place in my collection, so it would be nice to get his other toy too.

And hell yeah to springloaded transformations. The Beast Wars basics are what 1-steps today should strive to be. Razorbeast is the best, but I find Snapper to be incredibly adorable


Would anyone count the BWII vehicles as BW toys? I got Thrust and Dirge, as well as 3 of the 4 Autorollers (missing Autocrusher) that would fall under the auto-transformation category.

If anyone has a spare TR Furos, PotP Punch head, CW Dead End, CW Brawl or Swindle, hit me up!

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

I loved the BW basics, so posable and weren't hindered by their gimmick.

Thanks for the information on the homages, wasn't even aware of them!

Same. They were so charming. I had a few but to this day I do have a favourite... although it is pretty subtle :lol:

I think they were. Further cemented by some of them being converted into Beasts themselves.

I have two of them. Hellscream and Carnivac Max-B. Solid additions, next to their contemporaries in the Wolfang and Cybershark molds respectively. Although the cyber-ised additions to their bodies, do make them really unbalanced. Especially Hellscream and his turbine arm.

Good luck with the hunt for the rest!

And the completion of this guy was all thanks to our own Siebertron, who took the battered husk that I had and transformed it with all of the missing parts!

In hindsight I wonder why T30 Waspinator didn't get retooled into BW Buzzsaw with a new head? Considering most, if not all modern molds tend to be thought of with retools and redeco in mind...maybe there is a unused Buzzsaw head on that mold after all.

I found it strange how most of the Transmetal redecos, barring Cheetor, Terrorsaur and Primal, were not made into different characters?

It would have been nice that's for sure, considering all the botcon repaints of him.

Makes me wonder who Rhinox's alternate head was though too
