Sounds like y'all need to read "A Meeting of Minds" by Simon Furman. ;)

Let's be honest, we could fill a thread with ideas on how to make Beast Machines a better show...

Would the first point be to not to have made it :lol: what hurts more and with the loss of transtech (at least in terms of non-club material) is the loss of potential. I know some designs were salvaged but there's always the thought of what could have been.

It could have work, if they hadn't undermined practically all of Beast Wars characterisation. As far as Transtech goes... My stance is the same as with the rest of the Beast Era IE if it wasn't part of a show, it doesn't count. So in that way I put Transtech in the same "concept only" boat as Machine Wars. The convention exclusive stuff, just non-canon fanfic.

True. Weirdly enough, to look at some of the Transtech concept art I was curious how some of them would even work as figures...

Let alone, how they would stand??? :lol:

I like how they tweaked it to make Animated Blurr, also getting Guyver vibes from Cheetors head there.

Indeed. Definitely saw Guyver there myself. Transtech sounded so interesting in that it seemed to be Reboot, with Transformers. I wonder if we would have gotten some Vok resolution from it?

Meanwhile, DREAM CASTING:

Season One - 14 characters.

I stuck to the character limit but not how they were arranged by the show. I like the concept of Guerrilla Warfare, so my roster would have been based around squads, defending Territories.

Maximal - Axalon:

Optimus Primal (Bat)
Silverbolt (AKA Magnaboss Silverbolt)
Airazor

Maximal - Combat:

Dinobot
Armordillo
Wolfang
Polar Claw

Predacon - Darksyde:

Megatron
Transquito
Terrorsaur

Predacon - Raiders:

Manterror
Razorclaw
Spittor
Jetstorm - Drone

The idea being the Base unit is Stasis Pod recovery and air support. The secondary team is direct conflict and Energon retrieval.
