I want to be excited about Beast Wars, but the more I look at what future Earthrise waves have in store, the more I'm afraid we're just going to get a bunch of low-detail, lazily-engineered partsformers that look just like 90s CGI. :(
I hope not. I would like the figures to look like proper, real life animals. I'm hoping for more of the Generations Rhinox/Rattrap/Waspinator than some sort of cross between the BW Masterpiece CGI look and Animorphs. The CGI look just doesn't work for me on the MP toys.

Rotorstorm is pretty disappointing.

I'm a bit disappointed by Rotorstorm. It's just Spinister dressed up in Autobot colours.
In what must've been a late change, does apparently have a new head:

That makes a pretty big difference, even if I still don't think that Spinister's mold is the greatest choice for Rotorstorm. I'm honestly surprised that the figures weren't already produced and on the way to retailers when they showed off the prototype, though. Though I suppose this could have always been the plan and the prototype they showed off wasn't up to date, rather than them fixing the head after negative fan reactions.

He looks like he has huge eyebrows.
