For some reason this possibility never occurred to me and now I'm sad that I didn't get some of those guys. Guard City always had that "unobtainable Japanese exclusive" mystique, and zigzagger made him actually cool on top of that.
I loved the look of this set when it came out. If I'd known that it hit clearance I would have picked up their version of my boy Wildfly. Though probably not from TFSource because I don't want my credit card information winding up in the hands of some unscrupulous distant cousin back in the old country...

As good as representation of Death's Head as I think we're likely to get.
I find it baffling that Hasbro have the Marvel license but haven't managed to find a way to slip Death's Head into the Legends line. They've made a zillion characters more obscure than that and they even made a bloody Death's Head II. It's not like I'm asking for Circuit Breaker or something!
I'm just realizing now that I took a zillion pictures of my Beast-era collection before Christmas when I was dusting my shelves, and I don't think I've posted any of them here. I also have some older pics kicking around that I'm fond of as well. So I'm going to indulge in spamming this place with Beasties.
I don't think I ever showed off my custom pre-Transmetal Scarem! He's actually made from my childhood Insecticon. Which I never would have replaced if I'd known how easy it would be to disassemble him and take out the little automorph spring after the tiny clip that holds him shut in beast mode broke.
Iguanus's colour scheme is so damned photogenic...I think I may have taken more outdoor pictures of him than any other figure I own. I don't think I've posted too much of it here but I absolutely love taking outdoor photos of Beast Wars toys in the summertime. These outdoor shots are actually four or five years old, though.
Manterror is so much fun. It's weird, but it really feels like they deliberately chose the least interesting toys to feature in the first season of the TV show. So many of the non-show guys are so much cooler than the well-known characters.
Even when they're the same mold, like Buzz Saw here!
How did I wind up with this many Cheetors? I don't even like Cheetor! I do adore that Transmetal mold, though.
I think I may actually like Transmetal Terrorsaur more, though! They're both just brilliant designs, and absolutely ahead of their time.
Clay will like this shot:
That's enough for now, I think.
