Beast Wars
That's Just Primal Candy Toys and Other Little 'Formers - Far Out Friday
BaCon - Friday, May 12, 2017


We're always looking for the next BIG toy to put on the shelf, but what about the little 'formers? Those tiny bits of plastic depicting our favorite Transformers characters can be a lot of fun to collect. What's quite remarkable is the quantity and quality of toys you will find, especially from Japan. Where, gashapon (capsule toys) and other types of tiny collectibles are extremely popular. For this week's Far Out Friday, I am going ape with a look at some of the Beast Wars Optimus Primal small toys from Kabaya, Takara and Hasbro. See them all in the image gallery below.

Though I cannot speak for all of us here at TFormers, I am myself not a statue person. But this certainly makes me think twice. Prime 1 Studios has posted to Facebook showing their stunningly beautiful statue depicting Megatron as he appeared (more or less) in the first season of Beast Wars. The dino parts are a fair bit more detailed and "realistic" but otherwise this is a love letter to the original cartoon model. About the only fault I might find is the dismembered Dinobot on the base. The price for this is $1149, or $1199 for the exclusive version with the extra face option.

Reports are coming in that comics legend Len Wein - creator of Wolverine and Swamp Thing, writer of the "All New, All-Different" X-Men team, and editor of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen - has passed away at the age of 69. While he is perhaps rightly best known for those accomplishments, Wein was also a screenwriter who worked on no less than four different Transformers series: G1, Beast Wars, Beast Machines, and most recently the current series, Robots In Disguise. Our condolences go out to Mr. Wein's friends and family.
Beast Wars the TV show and Beast Wars the toys frequently didn't quite line up when it came to the look of the characters. Now that Beast Wars has earned a place in the Masterpiece line, that reality is starting to become a challenge as the show designs have to be reverse engineered as functional toys. But Beast Wars didn't always look the way we know it, with stylized, emotive characters that cheat their way between forms. At one stage of development, things were very different.

This bit of news was announced during the Hasbro Transformers product previews that the next Prime in line will be none other than Optimus Primal! This is not a great surprise considering all the attention the he has gotten with the new Masterpiece figure and recent reveal of a Beast Wars cartoon revival. Not that I am disappointed, I thinks its just Prime! Read on to see the official work from the group page.
An interesting news story has just surfaced that we are choosing to classify as a RUMOR until we find corroboration: a site called Entertainment Unlimited has posted a story claiming that Beast Wars is scheduled to make its return in late 2018 as a Netflix Animated Series! Marvel Comics writer Jason Aaron is said to be the scripter for the series, and a character list is given - though, given some of these characters one has to assume that this is an all-new continuity and not some kind of continuation of the original. (Which is slightly inevitable since, y'know, Beast Machines. Keep reading for the list!
