Primal looks so good. Rattrap keeps looking better to me (and more affordable than his T30 self). Cheetor's... Not perfect, but still better than nothing (I actually dig the tail axe, but the blue color keeps changing shades based on lighting so it's hard for me to know if I like the blue or not :lol: ). I'm still surprised at the fact that these guys are actually getting made, but it's such a fun experience seeing them get the same love that G1's been getting

Oh, these look so nice. 5mm hands and a Munky as big as Trukk! So glad I preordered all on Amazon, who knows when I'll get them but at least they've never canceled on me like Walmart or Target. I know Rattrap will fit in ER Prime's trailer but I wonder if Cheetor would too? That would make for some cool pics.

Primal is looking better and better
He looked pretty short in comparison to the primes though, im wondering if that was his stance and position in relation to them or if hes really that short

I was thinking the same about rattrap that would be so fun
And id like to think cheetor will fit as well, considering his beast mode isn't too wide and has enough articulation to crouch down

Primal is in more of a crouch than the Primes behind him, but with the perspective and angle of the photo, I cannot tell how much taller he will actually be with his legs straight.

You're right, looking at the beast-mode legs I now they did do a good job on the animal knees. Kitty crouched down in the back of the trailer with one of the Datsun bros trying to convince him to come out :lol:

what a missed opportunity. if they HAVE to be the same animals they had a chance here to make new cool looks for these animals and bot modes. like transmetals or something. there are so many molds of primal that exist already for example.

Cheetor -yes! Primal - yeeesssss!!! Rattrap, no freaking way. Those shoulders have turned me away since the first shots. I always say they are on sideways, face the sides not the front.

To be fair, this is the first time that he beast modes have designed to look more realistic compared to their past incarnations. I think they did a great job here.

When the fuck did we ever get an actual update to season 1 Primal in all of CHUG? We never had fully new molds of these characters in a collection meant for them to be proportional to eachother. There's been 5 lines of G1 before these that do that, this is the first time for Beast Wars, let us enjoy it.

Yeah lets get experimental with the Beast Wars guys because we have just been getting so much of them haven't we? The Beast Wars anniversary that celebrates these underappreciated characters is just the perfect place too! With everybody having a copy of the original versions there's no value to what their doing here eh?

Ok question: are we expecting Slammer to be a retool of either Fasttrack or Warpath? Or a new mold entirely or what? I'm mostly just wondering if he'll end up being a weaponizer.

I could see Slammer as a retool of Warpath as Metroplex already has a weaponizer, plus the vehicle mode is closer to Slammer's than Brunt or Fasttrack's. Though, if we get him as a new Weaponizer, I'd be interested to see what people make by combining him with Six-Gun

I really hope Slammer is a weaponizer, since all the other Titan partners are as well, for the sake of consistency

Pretty sure a leak said Slammer wasn't a Weaponizer and it makes sense since all of the Weaponizers (and Modulators) have had repaints and Hasbro has now moved on to Fossilizers. If for some reason they did make a new Weaponizer for Slammer then what would his repaint be?

I'm not convinced that Primal is the same size as Prime. Yeah, his legs are bent, but being closer to to the camera should make up for that. At best I would say he's a head shorter coming to Prime's shoulders.

True and the Season One show designs are the most uninteresting. Cheetor's design for example, is hideous. Even the MP. By the same token, his Transmetal 1 design is one of the best in the show. Which is why my curiosity was piqued by Polar Claw, but alas. The Beast Wars toyline had far more interesting designs than you ever really saw in the first season of the show.

However, much like the G1 CHUG lines, some are never happy unless we get the same looks repeated over and over again. In the case of G1, Updated annually. Because, "better" colours/engineering/scale/whatever.
Making them look as different as night and.. later that night.

Even if they did have to stick to the show cast (ala what the MP line is already doing) leaning more into the more visceral designs of the toys would have been better. Which they kind of have with Blackarachnia's Beast Mode. However, the Bot Modes still have to be akin to the show. So in spite of the whining, I agree it is a missed opportunity. However, since Earthrise, I think the entirety of WFC has been.

I don't think counting what the mps are doing as to what Generations should do is unfair. Takara is in charge of the Masterpiece line whole Hasbro does Generations, so one should not control what thd others release and vice versa. I don't think there's anything wrong with this approach as it's the first time that Beast Wars has gotten the attention. Had this been the third attempt with beasts in the main line then fine, mix it up, but as this is their grand revival, keep it simple.

I seem to recall there was a previous anniversary line for Beast Wars. Although from what I've seen of them, they look awful. But (not comparing them in a quality sense) when it comes to this line and MP, regardless of who is putting it out, purely on a repetition of design, it is like...

The anniversary of Beast Wars doesn't limit the designs to season one.

The 2006 line? That was just the old 1996-1998 molds, plus the Cyber Key-compatible Primal and Megatron toys.

Yeah, that's the one. With these things:

As far as WFC is concerned. A modern update to the Transmetals would have been a lot more in keeping with the rest of the line.

Alternatively WFC consisting of the Original Beast Wars roster could have been a better way of acknowledging the anniversary.
