    Fave BW / BM toys and WHY

    By CiaraAnne,

    Out of all the Beast Wars and Beast Machines toys out there...what are everyone's top 3 favorites? I know that may be an easy one but can you explain why?


    BWTM Blackarachnia aka Universe Blackarachnia: I have always loved her character in the cartoons and the fact she is a hottie for a toy...well, 'nuff said. :tflaugh1


    BWTM Cheetor (both color schemes) aka Armada Cheetor: I have always been a fan of this mold, not the character...persay. The robot mode is very kewl, even though simplistic in design...but the tail axe is the best part as it fits on almost anyone as a weapon :tfgrin


    BM Electronic Ultra Jetstorm: HUGE toy and hard to find without spending a fortune on him. I just love the alternate mode to pieces! :tfevil

    New Bumblebee ideas for Alternator/New Movie

    Guest Primal-Convoy
    By Guest Primal-Convoy,

    :tftounge I posted the exact same thing at Don Murphy's forum, but I thought it might be good for here, too!



    Volkswagon DONT want a link to TFs anymore. A planned Alternator for Bumblebee :tftounge , which was ready for production, was scrapped as VW, possibly due to their links with Adolf Hitler and WW2 (he endorsed it, you see as "The peoples' car, literally "Volks/Folk's Wagon/Car") :tdown .


    If this is the case, why not try some alternatives for old Bumblebee. these could be:


    1/ The Classic Porshe:



    This car was designed by Porshe himself, alongside the VW Beetle. Its rear engined, like the VW and it looks like a sporty version of the VW. This pic is in yellow too! my first choice.


    2/ A Beetle "Baja":




    When game maker, Sony failed to secure Porshe and Ferrari in the license aggreement for its game, "Gran Turismo 2", it looked for other ways of including similar cars. One way was by using "RUF" cars. RUF is a company that modifies and upgrades Porshes to such a level, that it can legally be considered a different model/make of car.


    Im not sure if a "Baja" qualifies as one, but I 'm sure there are official Beetle kit-car or custom car makers out there that COULD endorse a similar, or beetle inspired shell for use.


    3/ BMW/ Austin Mini-Cooper.






    A small car with a lot of character? VW's Beetle had a few contender to that title and the Mini Cooper was one of them. Now owned by German company BMW, this may not be as difficult to secure as BMW loves media attention for its cars (James Bond and the Itallian Job 2 as examples). Look, it even has its own Sd Penny racer, just like Bumblebee was:




    So what do you think, folks? This could work either for the movie OR the new Alternator line.

    Would G1 Starscream have been a good leader?

    By Smokescreened,

    Hands up who loved G1 Starscream's attempts to be leader? He was a good character for sure and his attempts were either funny or serious, think he would have been a good leader of the Decepticons though? He was a little too sure of himself, always making himself seem better than he really was. That's probably why he was a good character, he seemed to be very insecure inside whenever he bragged about his skills and that could explain why he wanted to be the leader so badly, to prove to himself that he was the best. Anyone else got thoughts on G1 Starscream?



    Alternator Bumblebee?

    I know this pic isn't real, but am I the only one who wishes that this were what Alt. Bumblebee looked like?

    Not you fav TF, but your personal TF

    By Smokescreened,

    Ok, I thought this would be like those 'What's your fav TF?' topics, but it isn't, so bear with me a sec here. As I'm sure some of you have noticed if you've seen me on other boards is that lately I've been picking the name Smokescreened for my username, so maybe I should explain the reason behind it.

    When I was younger, back in 1984, my mum gave me my first TF before my 5th birthday, she gave me G1 Smokescreen, a year before he was released so maybe he was a diaclone, but I don't remember there being the little men with it. Not long after I got Smokescreen, something was done to me that changed my life and ruined it in one fell sweep and TF's became my only support to cope.

    After my fiancee got me back into TF's in 2001, I started wondering about why I liked Smokescreen so much when my childhood TF heroes were Prowl and Op. Prime and then I figured it out after I had a nasty episode last year, Smokescreen is me in a way. He gambles with his life, takes risks and tries to survive against overwhelming odds, that's what I do every day.

    So I started changing my usernames to Smokescreened after I got BT Smokescreen, which ironically was a rebirth for him and the last few months has been a slow rebirth for me in the way that I'm trying to move on from my past and look to my future. That's why I have BT Smokescreen in my sig, G1 Smokescreen as my avatar, since there isn't a huge choice just yet what with the boards being new and all, and why my name is what it is. Smokescreen is my personal TF for myself, for who I am and the way I am. So what's everyone else's personal TF? What TF says something about you as person? And I'm probably rambling and going to be asked to remove this post, but I'm just curious.



    stupid question...

    Big Grim
    By Big Grim,


    I hear them mentioned all the time. Are they the Decepticon jets: Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Thrust, Dirge, and Ramjet? Someday please fill me in

    Something I've noticed about Soundwave

    By Smokescreened,

    I don't know if anyone else has ever noticed this, but the G1 comic Soundwave became purple. I don't know if anyone's ever mentioned it before, but it is an interesting observation. I'm surprised there hasn't been a purple Soundwave released for the collectors, but then again it might happen. Anyone else if noticed it?

    Transformers Live Action Movie

    By Optimus77,

    Hey I'm new to this forum group and I just want to throw out a post to see what kind of replies I can get. I want to know what are some of the characters you would like to see or should I say are must have's in the upcoming movie next year. What will you think the storyline will be like. I'm a big transformer fan and I think I would love to see at least one sequel, who knows maybe at the end have a huge character like fort max or unicron come in a that will be a lead to the next movie. All I know if they do this thing right it will be one Awesome experience.
