I don't have a big problem with recycling old G1 names, but when they recycle Go-bot names, it starts to get on my nerves.

Default just puts everything into perspective, doesn't it?

Now we know where Gobots fit into Transformers continuity (Never mind the fact that there's a huge gap between Beast Wars, and G1, the gobots are way more important:rolleyes: )

I just hope that they explain the stuff that we're missing from Beast Wars (ie, the need for Maximals and Predicons, and the peace treaty that they speak of in the pilot).

Need for Maximals and Predacons?
Already known... when there is peace there is no need to be an excessively huge energon-guzzling war machine.... QED.

It't meant to be life sized. It is the same size it is going to be in the cartoon. That way you can pretend to use laserbeak.

The Grimlock name now seems to belong to a Transformer who looks like a cross between Hardhead and a Constructicon! That just doesn't feel right to me. Its Grimlock! our guy is a legend. I hope this ain't Grimlock's brain in a new body (I don't think that's the way this new line works is it?).

Galvatron looks a bit like a cross between a Power Rangers toy and Gundam wing. Still pretty cool, but... well, think I'll stick with G1 for now.

...in RiD? Nope, they're different characters. Not good name re-use, IM-no-so-HO... besides which, the Japanese names were cooler.

Correct to "Most of" in that sentence.

Besides the Build team, everyone else's name seemed to fit. One could debate the Train-Trio, but either side works.

In regards to Laserbeak, it'd be an idea if he came with a mini-con Laserbeak, who could interact with the toy characters.

In other words, you've got your life-sized, and you've got one sized to the toys. Not a bad idea, considering.

I think Sideways' minicons can safely be removed from the list....
