Back in the glory days of Beast Wars, after the initial series in Japan, Takara decided to start making new beast molds on their own. We got the fantastic Lio Convoy and Galvatron toys, repaints of a number of G1 and G2 toys, including two that had never been previously released. We also got a lot of straight repaints of American Beast Wars toys. I picked up all the new, G1, and G2 molds, but not the Beast Wars repaints. I was looking at stuff on ebay and found 4 deluxe and 2 mega molds that I didn’t get back then, really cheap, so I picked them up. All are repaints, slight to total accept one. I thought I’d review them since when I got them out of the box I got a little nostalgic for toys that I hadn’t thought much of back in the day, but seem so much better with the passage of time.
I never liked this mold, but I think a big part of that was the coloring of the original USA version. Transquito is brown and yellow and purple. Bigmos looks amazing. Still not a huge fan of the mold, but they made him look amazing. Another toy with it’s missile in it’s mouth. If not for that, I think he would look even better.
Overall: If you’re picking between the USA and Japanese versions, the Japanese looks way better, but it’s still not a mold I can really recommend.
