Ah, sorry Va'al I had seen the solicits on most other tf websites and it was like "this feels too weird to be an oversight, should I do something? "

It's because Va'al sometimes sleeps and works, too. Despite all evidence to the contrary. :P

(This was ready at 6 pm my time on the 19th - But noooooooooooo we need to wait for the BIG sites to cover it first, because EXCLUSIVES. BAH.)

Cool, Tracks gets something to do in an ongoing story!

I am hoping we get more Generations Beast Wars figures thanks to this update.

I would love to have the likes of Blackarachnia,Dinobot,Inferno and many others.

This is sweet! Cant wait for some Tracks finally and Needlenose is a pretty cool Decepticon too. I can only hope that we get a new non-combiner figure Tracks now. I dont collect Masterpiece so that Tracks is out and the one from a few years ago just doesnt look good to me. Too fat and I prefer Tracks to be a 70's vette. If not Tracks may be me first MP figure besides Rumble & Buzzsaw. I was hoping that the Beast Wars guys would be a new colony, so this makes me happy to be an IDW Transformers comic fan these days.

I'm glad they've made the beast wars world a colony this is the richest Transformers universe ever and i'm happy to be reading it.

I just wish they'd stop killing off characters

Woo hoo! Beast Wars! Just in time for the 20th anniversary in 2016. Time to start busting out vintage Beast Wars figures to finish up those missing galleries. :D

I've never been a Beast Wars fan really. I dont dislike it, I just never got into it. Them being introduced like this has me stoked. I'll probably regret not getting Rhinox now :(

I'll be interesting to see what they do with Rattrap and Waspinator, and possibly Sky-Byte going forward. Maybe they'll head over to the Beast Colony!

Hmm, there's a thought. What DID happen to Rhinox after he met Trion, Nova and Galvatron?
