I have to agree with you on that one. Beast Wars is easily one of my favourite series from when I was growing up in terms of story and character development. FUN FACT: Wolfang was originally going to be in the series,
Spoiler:
but it was far easier and much less expensive to add a palette-swapped character instead, so Tigatron ended up with the role.

I never knew that.

I wasn't able to watch all the series till it was released on DVD years ago. I seen the first 2 seasons on tv but then they stopped. Glad for dvds that's for sure.

My brother gave me the complete collection on DVD for Christmas a while back. I've started rewatching them, but our DVD player's stopped working properly. :/

All this Beast Wars talk is making me want to watch them again as well. Hope you get yours fixed. I recently got a bluray player for 60$ They've really come down in price.

I was planning on getting a PS3 sometime this year, which would serve as my Blu-Ray player. Of course, I still need to replace my TV, which broke in the middle of last year... Neutral

I'm thinking I might revise the list of Beast Wars toys I'd like to collect by using the options in the polls. Why just collect a few of my favourites when I could collect all my favourites instead? ^_^

Here's one of my favourite moments from Beast Wars: Transformers:

The Maximals stare at their ancestor, Optimus Prime, who's been near-irreparably damaged.
Optimus Primal: Well, that's just prime.
Rattrap: Or what's left of him.
The others glare at Rattrap.
Rattrap: I know, I know, "Shut up, Rattrap!"...

So Combiner Wars is really growing on me at a rapid rate, and I'm looking forward to collecting my favourites from the series. The currently-known characters/teams which I'd most like to collect are the Constructicons, Optimus Maximus, Cyclonus, the Aerialbots, the Stunticons, the Protectobots and the Combaticons. "But Zack," I hear you ask, "Optimus Maximus and the Combaticons haven't officially been announced yet!" Ah, but there have been leaks which spoil the identities of Optimus Maximus, Onslaught and Scattershot (I'm not listing the Technobots until I know that the Terrorcons will also definitely be coming as well, though).

Even though only three of the original Scramble City combiner teams have been officially announced, there are strong rumours that there will also be new versions of the Combaticons, and some of the clues are in the current toys: Alpha Bravo (and, by extension, Blades) looks like he would make a perfect Vortex; Rook could easily be retooled into a new Brawl figure; Hot Spot is a blatant giveaway that he'd be retooled into his nemesis, Onslaught; and Swindle happens to be the central focus of the storyline's prologue, perhaps hinting at a major involvement of him in the near future, not to mention the fact that it'd be easy enough to repurpose the Off Road mould into a new Swindle toy.

So let's assume that there is going to be a team of Combaticons in Combiner Wars (Yay!). Here's what I would want to see in it:

Onslaught as a retool of the Protectobot leader, Hot Spot
Swindle as a retool of the new Stunticon member, Off Road
Brawl as a retool of the new Protectobot member, Rook
Vortex as a retool of the new Aerialbot member, Alpha Bravo
A brand-new Combaticon* as a retool of one of the jet Aerialbots

That last one is particularly enticing, as having a jet in the Combaticon ranks would really capture the essence of the team's theme. Blast Off is okay, but space shuttles don't really seem like battle-ready vehicles to me. A jet would be a perfect new addition for sure.

Just hearing you talk about them gets me so excited! I'm probably long past collecting them but just hearing some of those names you rattled of brings back so many memories. I still have a bunch of first gen and beyond my kids play with these days.

The Transformers is my favorite toy and cartoon series of all time. To me they were always more then just a toy and they were multiple toys to me. That's why most other toys never really clicked with me as they were just one thing, never changing and always the same.

I have to agree with you there, @Tech_101. Transformers were amongst the first toys I ever owned, and I never really grew out of them. I remember my first combiner toy was G2 Swindle, but I didn't get my first full combiner teams until about 5 years ago, when Power Core Combiners were released.
