Transformers: Pre-Beast Wars Toys!
Is now ever a GREAT time to be a Transformer-fan! There’s the Alternators line (giving fans complex toys based on licensed vehicles), the Titanium line (returning the series to its die-cast roots, with some fan-favorite War Within characters to boot), the Classics line (bringing back original characters in their quasi-original forms, only with better moulds and more articulation), AND a live-action movie in the works!
But what about the poor Beast Wars fans?
Well, they’re taken care off. In addition to the Beast Wars reissues series, Botcon has the hardcore fans covered with a line of Pre-Beast Wars toys. These are the characters as they appeared on Cybertron, before their reformatting into fuzzy animals. They’re repaints of previously released Armada, Energon and Cybertron toys but with Beast Wars-accurate colors, remolded heads and even Golden Disc-themed Cyber Planet Keys. So far, Optimus Primal, Dinobot, Cheetor and Rattrap have been announced.
