Beast Wars turned 20 years old this year. Specifically back in April when the anniversary of the original airing of "Beast Wars" parts 1 and 2 occurred. But, there was the entire summer then to wait before there was more - or even a repeat of the "Beast Wars" two parter. It left the question of what to expect from this show. On September 18th, we got the first answer, with the debut of the first new episode in the show's regular syndication airing. And so, keep reading, as today we look back on the 20th anniversary of "The Web"...
Just after we brought you a gallery of G1 Optimus Prime statue photos from prime 1 Studio at SDCC, we have an image of a prototype from Wonderfest for Optimus Primal! This statue goes for a heavily textured appearance with loads of sculpted fur, interspersed with various mechanical details - and of course, a dismembered Waspinator incorporated in to the base unit. Not to mention it has some super bright light up red eyes! Click through to see the photo, thanks to Chohenken.
With Hasbro so far uninterested in observing the 20th anniversary of Beast Wars, fans seem to be taking matters in to their own hands. Following from the Dinobot made out of Generations Springer we highlighted yesterday, we have a custom Silverbolt by Javier Alvarez. Made from Beast Hunters Grimwing, this calls back to a 2014 poll held by Million Publishing to decide on a future Generations

A Twitter user by the name of Suguring has posted an image of a custom Dinobot figure to Twitter! Made from the Generations Voyager-class Springer mold, the figure seems to sport a Henkei Dinobot head - which going by current aftermarket prices makes it a pretty expensive custom! The shield is borrowed from the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Ratchet Figure. Keep reading to have a closer look!
A customizer who goes by @yasuu22 on Twitter has posted images of their take on BotCon 2016's Magnaboss figure - and you can definitely say it's an upgrade! Going well above and beyond the mere sticker sheets for the retail versions of Silverbolt, Prowl, and Ironhide, yasuu22 has given each of the three a full Beast Wars makeover!
