Redid my beast shelves this weekend, working in a new Rhinox figure and some of my Cybertron beasts who fit in as well. 5 shelves, looks great!

Also, I got to see some Beast grails last weekend, here are some of them!

Oh man, pre-BW or TM2 Botcon 2016 Megatron are two figures I really wish I could have. Sadly, Warden hate BW so we won't see Doubledealer or Snapdragon redone as BW Megatron in SELECTS.

The last 2006 Darksyde Megatron went on ebay for $3200, so I know I won't get him ever, but it was so cool to hold him. He is spectacular in person!

Man I just want a new (non MP) figure for BW Megatron. Through bad luck all my figures of him are broken and/or lost and he hasn't resurfaced in CHUG...

Who's the beastie on the top shelf next to the Bumblebee mask? Reminds me of a mazinger Z villain :lol:

Which one? The white one is Devil Gigatron, the red is Savage Noble

Devil Gigatron, now you say it's obvious :lol: the picture looked almost monochrome, while I'd convinced myself that there was more flashes of color on him

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I have him in beast mode and Gigatron proper in robot mode, 1 for each main mode! I bought Devil complete so he was the beast mode one, while Gigatron was missing his tail, dragon arms, dragon head covers, and weapons, but I got all but the little forearms in a parts lot a few weeks back/. But even then, I like having the white Devil one in dragon mode, it looks cooler that way

Thanks!

Cryo Scourge seemed to work there as Cryotek, and it puts the 2 Scourges I have on different shelves. Leo Prime made sense there (and he still has the Child, caring for him until Mando arrives), and Razorclaw was designed as a Beast Machines toy. Buzzsaw and Longrack moved over cause it made sense as well.

I like how it turned out, got Gigastorm in there too, with some room for 3 more bots coming from Burn eventually. I like setting up my displays with room for growth but still look full and complete

The final 3 Transmetal molds I was missing after obtaining a Rhinox ;)

Oh very nice! Did you go in on getting all the recolours of the Transmetals?

Nope, I am a mold collector, i don't really focus in on all the repaints, more just having a representation of the molds in my collection. I only need 1 TM Rhinox, I don't need all 3 paintschemes, or even a non-minicon retooled one.

It provides for a variety of shapes rather than colors, which i prefer. See my Seeker collection for more on that

Little by little, The Plague grows!

Scourge, the tracker. And his huntsmen... the Sweeps.

Only one or two more. I was thinking about stopping at three, in honour of 2, 6 and 7. Then I thought that aesthetically, as they are locusts, Scourge with four Sweeps looks more intimidating. I do love how, just by their mirrored mandibles, they are even visually atypical to each other.

Sky Shadow is very cool, probably the best fuzor mold they made. And he is very photogenic outside!

"And here we have Sky Shadow, who by their nature, are singular hunters. Lying in wait for their prey. Their Camouflage protecting them against the bigger hunters, while perfectly adapted for them to launch a deadly attack of their own."

Seriously getting nature documentary vibes there d-max! :lol:

He blends in so well! I am super happy with him for outdoors pics. He almost looks natural!

Yeah, he looks great outdoors! And I think he was the inspiration for Wreckloose

Completed the Buzzsaw family, they are a great looking group! I actually like this little Beast Machines guy, he's neat

Very nice! I do think clearly they wanted to do more with some namesakes. Creating legacy names out of them. But alas, it was not to be. Buzzsaw was one of the very few BM Maximals I thought was pretty cool, back in the day.


RE: Sky Shadow. It is so strange that he is such a good figure and even the bio basically calls him the leader of the Fuzors. Yet no one ever did anything with him, barring visual cameos.

That he is. Just don't let him near G1 Kickback, Shrapnel, and Bombshell if you have them
