Beast Wars Tuesdays continues! We return to the Seibertron.com series of galleries showcasing the products of the 90s that had to do with Beast Wars, Beast Wars II, Beast Wars Neo - given the anniversary of the first series this year - with the three amigos from Beast Wars II: DJ, Gimlet and Motorarm, and their combined form, Tripledacus.
The Jointron brothers are the Japanese counterparts to the Hasbro Tripredacus set (Ram Horn, Sea Clamp and Cicadacon), and feature cicada/torso DJ, legs/lobster Gimlet, and arms/beetle Motorarm, each with a new deco and available as both a gift set and as single figures - probably for the best, given their obnoxious characterisation in the animated series. Check out the full galleries by clicking on any of the images below!

It was Tuesday when I posted it. And it's Tuesday when the banner went up.
You and your limiting timezones.

It's time again to celebrate Seibertron's Beast Wars Tuesdays! Tis on this day we bring you new, fresh galleries of all your favorite classic Beast Wars and Machines toys, plus some really far-out variants. We might have one of the latter today as we take a look at the Takara Beast Wars C-5 Rattle (Or as you might know him, Rattrap!) That green sticker signifies and certifies him a variant, so he's fair game for Beast Wars Tuesdays! As with all other Seibertron galleries, a selection of photos has been presented below, and you can view the full gallery by clicking on any of them! Find all the Beast Wars Tuesdays galleries here!
And, as always, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest Transformers news!

In a sudden plot twist, that has nothing to do with international political scenarios, we bring you another instalment on Seibertron.com's Beast Wars Tuesdays... on a Wednesday!
Join us this week as we keep fleshing out the Maximal ranks with not one but two galleries from the loveable but deadly mechanical expert and spiritual core to the team: Rhinox. The rhinoceros alt-mode equipped character comes in two versions for the Japanese Takara Tomy Transformers release, both from 1996 - with C-7 as a standalone packaged toy, and V-7 as part of a two-pack with Predacon Shadow Panther. Both identical in their paint changes, which added black eyes and a grey coat to the Deluxe Hasbro release (check it out here). Click on any image below for the full galleries, and check out more Beast Wars Tuesdays news stories here!

Not necessarily true. If I understand Takara Rhinox correctly, the US version was originally released as C-7 Rhinox, then the one I have a gallery of here with the green sticker was the "running" change. The VS-7 two pack version is a 3rd version of the toy that was not available in the C-7 package as far as I'm aware. If I recall correctly, Sabrblade Powered Convoy pointed these variants out to me a while back while I was on my hunt for the Scorponok dark purplish/black variant (or just prior to, can't remember exactly): viewtopic.php?f=4&t=100772&p=1746131&hilit=rhinox#p1746131

I hope Reprolabels does a Gigastorm set for TR Trypticon, especially since they now have parts in their conversion sets. Seems like it'd be so easy.

I always wished that Takara would have done a release of Megastorm retooled from the smaller, more articulated Hero Megatron mold so that he could scale better with the rest of his team instead of towering over all of them, as he was only the second-tallest Predacon in the show, second only to Galvatron in height (who himself was bigger than everyone else but not too much bigger).
Now, that all changed when he became Gigastorm, as by then he did supersede everyone's height, with only Magnaboss and Galvatron's dragon mode able to come near to his height.
In fact, because Gigastorm was so big, the cartoon actually made one of the very first uses of an official in-universe explanation for size-changing, years before Dreamwave or IDW would come up with the "mass-shifting", "parts compression", and "mass-displacement" explanations. In the show, Gigastorm had become so big that he could no longer fit inside the Predacon's fortress mothership. In order to make him fit inside, he would have be subjected to an "Elemental Particle Control Beam", fired at him by the ship, which would shrink him down to a more manageable size (roughly the same height as his brother). The effects of this beam would seemingly remain indefinite, or at least until he'd leave the ship. Whenever he'd be seen back outside the ship, he always be back to his original size, but we were never shown him actually regaining that size onscreen. We can only speculate that the effects either wore off whenever he left the ship, or were reversed by another size-changing method that he needed to be subjected to upon leaving the ship.
Though, one time, in an episode where Gigastorm finally made his ambitions to overthrow Galvatron known to his brother, as he and Galvatron fought each other, Galvatron punished Gigastorm for his treasonous behavior by subjecting him to a much greater dose of the Elemental Particle Control Beam, which shrunk Gigastorm down all the way to toy size. Galvatron picked up his pint-sized brother and starting pulling on his limbs and tail like how a child would improperly play with a toy, as part of further punishing Gigastorm. He was back to his normal height by the next episode, though, evidently having suffered enough punishment to fall back in line under Galvatron's thumb.
I recently learned that Gigastorm being a Cyborg Beast is a bit of a misnomer. Though he played a role in upgrading the Combatrons into the Cyborg Beasts, it turns out that he wasn't a Cyborg Beast himself in the original Japanese fiction. Only in the IDW Beast Wars Sourcebook was he declared a Cyborg Beast (or "Cyber Beast", as the Sourcebook called them), based on the longstanding (but mistaken) fan belief that he too was one of them.Va'al wrote:the upgraded Arch-Duke of Destruction featuring the Full Tilt redeco into Gigascouter, on the other hand, is the Cyborg Beast Supreme class Trypticon repurposing, with new added nose horn.
