The robot that never was. Which is a shame since 1950s Knock-Off Krang is just the best.

Reedman, G1(ish) style!
(I'm pretty sure I'm taking this idea from a post somewhere here on the Allspark, so if you came up with this gag about Reedy being Ravage's tape-guts, thanks!)
Now that's what I call a tapeworm...

When Predacons of the far future attempt to use a time machine to summon Megatron, they instead get... some unholy giant that turns into an all-terrain aircraft carrier with an old-timey wooden ship's wheel. The Preds and Maximals know full well who this Majin Zarak is, but we the audience have never seen him before or since. Which is kind of a fun idea, the notion that Cybertronian history goes far beyond what the various cartoons and comics have covered.

By far my favorite bot in terms of design, and one of my favorite movie monsters in general. Always nice to see something that you feel like you need to invent new words to properly describe. I mean, you could say "unicycle robot", but that utterly fails to convey how he 'walks' his wheels in apparent effort to stay balanced, or the way his head/torso(?) sort of just dangles between his shoulders, or the odd impression he is only part of a much larger entity.

A couple of Beast Wars figures can launch missiles out of their mouths, but while Sky Shadow and Bonecrusher's are designed as if they're meant to be secondary jaws, Transquito's got a sickly translucent yellow glob of barf. Gross! His projectile puke doubles as a proboscis, which... is a very strange sentence to write.

It always struck me how Unicron was first introduced dwarfed by a pair of stars immediately before devouring an entire planet with cold indifference, all the while haunting ethereal music plays. A strange mix of an evil beyond comprehension, yet who is itself insignificant on the cosmic scale...
Acolyte of Unicron
Namely Kranix, who somehow or other became that little moon drone that comes with Unicron's toy. Rather disturbingly, the Lithonian already has the Big Guy's facial hair and feet. Freaky!
