It was on September 16, 1995 that Beast Wars first hit the air waves (Known as Beasties in Canada). To put that in perspective, the original G1 Transformers cartoon had premiered a mere 11 years before that. The impact the Beast Wars series had on the Transfo

I love the Robots In Disguise designers. Hasbro may not be doing a Beast Wars Anniversary event, or giving us tons of new Beast Wars updates or reissues, but they clearly gave us a reincarnated Beast Wars Scorponok as a TRU exclusive deluxe figure. Oh, and Starscream is back again too. 🙂

I’ll be honest, as the exclusives for the last Botcon were revealed online, I didn’t really feel all that excited about Unit-3. For a guy that loves new and obscure characters, I really can’t explain it. He just didn’t do it for me. Who is Unit-3? Long story short, he’s a character created for this year’s Botcon comic, based off […]

Beast Wars II Full Sub Released By Karyuudo Fansubs

Beast Wars Release Redone

Callum somehow managed to avoid Transformers during his actual childhood, but then the live-action films piqued his interest, Animated suckered him in, and IDW's comics made sure he stuck around.

Beast Wars II, broadcast in Japan from 1998 to 1999 to bridge the gap between the local release of Beast Wars seasons 1 and 2, has long been an enigma to the English-speaking fandom, having never been subtitled in its entirety. Now, courtesy of Karyuudo Fansubs, a full English sub of the show has been released for the first time ever!

After yesterday’s announcement of the exclusive LG-EX releases of Legends Rhinox, Rattrap, and Waspinator, people were wondering what the differences were between the LG-EX release and the previous Generations / Legends releases.  Now we have better pictures to show off the changes.  Rhinox features a non-metallic brown and green in addition to other deco changes, Rattrap appears mostly the same […]

Are you in the market for some inaccurately scaled teammates/enemies for your Masterpiece Optimus Primal? You’re in luck as TakaraTomy updated their Q-Transformers site with this little doozy. It doesn’t look like there has been any remolding but each of them seems to have lost the more “shiny” paint they were previously covered with (at least in Rhinox and Waspinator’s […]
