The RM version is Deluxe-sized, the Ultra Megfatron reissue is Voyager-sized.

Then it's perspective

Some of you will think this upcoming "surprise" set of galleries will be the lamest of all of the galleries here but some of you will appreciate a few things that I held onto that I consider to be the first Beast Wars promotional item(s). These 4 "surprise" galleries are very special to me even if no one else likes what I've been working on for the past few hours. Galleries of this surprise will be posted in the next few days.
I just updated my signature to give you guys a teaser of at least 4 of the galleries that I will be launching early this week. Some of you will notice the Beast Wars figures that were part of the McDonald's Happy Meal promotion in March 1996.
While these might not be the most exciting figures to some of you, I did a variety of things to these galleries to make them a little more interesting to everyone. I still have several of the Happy Meal boxes (a couple of which have never been used before) which includes some interesting artwork and some really bad jokes, the "toy reference card for crew", the instructions given to McDonald's to setup the Littlelest Pet Shop/Transformers Beast Wars display (both of which I obtained while I was working them as a teenager) and some artwork that I had drawn of these 4 figures/characters shortly after they were released.
I also pulled out the 10 Beast Wars figures that were referenced on the Happy Meal boxes for a few battle scenes ... which is where my signature image is currently from. I consider these 4 figures to be "official" Beast Wars figures. They're the only original figures that have ever been released as a Happy Meal premium to the best of my knowledge. They're also better than most Happy Meal premiums in my opinion as well.
Before anyone asks, I do not have any plans to do any other Transformers kid's meal premiums from McDonald's or Burger King at this time. As I mentioned above, I consider these 4 figures to be part of the official line. I do not consider any other Happy Meal toys as part of the official Transformers line(s). Maybe one day, there will be a whole section on this site dedicated to Happy Meal toys but it's not a priority on my list for the time being unless I can find a whole collection of them for really, really cheap.
The McDonald's Beast Wars figures will be launched this week along with Takara's reissues of Dinobot and Cheetor and Transmetal Scavenger will even get his gallery posted at very, very long last (I started his gallery in October 2005 and finally got around to finishing it yesterday).
I'm about to head to bed. Have a great night everyone!

Never thought about that... interesting.

I'm looking forward to these pictures!

These should be posted no later than tomorrow night. I think I'll have Dinobot, Cheetor and Transmetal Scavenger all posted by this evening.
