Anyone with the original BA figure think it'll look better in robot mode?

Nah, Japan is only just now getting Beast Machines (re-titled 'Beast Wars Returns') and this is one of the colour schemes they've apparently adapted to better reflect the show...

I don't really think it will look better. The darker scheme on the original works surprisingly well.

Oooh, I'll have to check out the local Big Lots for that Lio Convoy...

Problem is, Big Lots stores are hardly consistent when it comes to what crappy knockoff merchandise they carry.

I bought the Emergency team/Defensor KO. The head for Defensor has already broke off. Very cheap plastic. Still pretty good. However, the orginal Defensor head, was poorly designed in the first place.

Firstly, that isn't Beast Wars Black Arachnia, thats from Beast Machines. Secondly, don't say it's Beast Wars if it's that gay BM crap.

Considering the number of male roles in the series it is a possibility.

Thirdly, don't enter threads if you're clueless as to what's going on. As someone else stated, Beast Wars Returns is the name of Beast Machines in Japan, as it just got imported there this year. And Beast Machines was far from "gay". It was well-written and well animated.

Get a clue, kid.

Looks like thats always been the case though.
I mean when they brought in the Femme-bots in G1 S2 it went a bit pear shaped to put it mildly...not good characters...Arcee in the Japanese Headmasters series was just the receptionist.

Blach Arachnia was a good strong female character.

Question. How come its taken so long for the Japanse to get Beast Machines?

Too true....it actually had good charachter development. and Prime died...properly...didnt come back...stupid plot holes (curses later G1 series)

They're very... yellow. I picked up a KO Devastator, Defensor, and Superion a few months ago for $5 each. They also have a simplified RID Megatron, Optimal Optimus, Heinlad, TM2 Rattrap, and the Lio convoy. I've not seen any TM2 Megatron KO's, though.

It is cheap plastic, but they're cheap toys.
