So were Beast Wars and Beast Machines. ;)

But, in all seriousness, I get what you're saying. I guess it's just that it keeps getting mentioned since there are still so many who aren't aware of it and such.

I mean, using the above example, I look at my BW and BM toys and, if I didn't know any better, I probably wouldn't see any real connection or relation between the two toylines beyond the generic presence of both having some animal-based toys since the two are very aesthetically distinct from one another. The BM toys even "feel" different from the BW toys and such. ;)

How many times has that been used, btw? PRID, Dead End, AM, Dark Energon, Wildrider, BH... six? Or am I missing one?

I wish we had a non-transluscent version of ole "Slicer," but still... guessing I'll need to track that version down. I have just about all the others.

That said, I'd lurve a nice main-line release in the classics version mold of Wheeljack in Slicer colors. They could call it whatever they wanted.

Wait a minute. I'd just love a G1 recolor as Slicer. That would be smooth.

Oh, if only! But I think the G1 Wheeljack mold is among those that have been lost/destroyed/etc.

Yeah, that one's pretty... just a little blocky.

Reminds me, I can't recall merging him with anyone ever. Hmmm. With Thunderclash and Nightbeat, I can think of at least three or five (including the shatteredverse ones) Energon combiners from the TFCC/Botcon lineup. Am I missing any?

Oh yeah. Back on topic. This Wheeljack mold IS really nice...maybe my top pick for the Prime line.

Mental note: buy a junker Wheeljack, some blue paint, and some paint thinner.
