Mutant Beast Wars

This isn't the first time Hasbro has pulled something out of left field and pasted a Transformers label on it. The Beast Wars Mutants are one such example of their more *interesting* product ideas. There's are different ideas about where the Mutants line really came from. Supposedly, they were originally intended to be part of the unsuccessful Transformers Animorphs series. However they ended up being released as the final wave in the Beast Wars figures line instead.

The Story
According to the packaging the Mutants are a third faction that were created when Megatron's plan to develop an anti-conversion virus went wrong and thus preventing some Fuzors the ability to change into robot mode forced them into a state of dual-beast modes. As described on the packaging:
    "The evil Megatron has developed an experimental anti-conversion virus with which he plans to win the Beast Wars! This toxin infects its host and prevents the ability to change into robot mode - eventually causing permanent shutdown. But something went wrong... when unleashed on several Fuzors, it caused a reconfiguration of their conversion abilities, trapping their robot modes inside two different beast modes. Now, bewildered by new and potent extrasensory powers plus the ability to change into two ferocious animals, these Transformers join together to form a renegade band of warriors. This is... Mutant Beast Wars!"

Razor Claw
Modes: Raptor to Wolverine
Function : Warrior
Group : Mutant
Released: April 2000
Motto: "Greater dooms win greater destinies!"
Bio: Razor Claw's loyalty and self-sacrifice is unmatched by any of the Mutants. Goes into battle with crusader-like enthusiasm; relishes tearing apart Predacons in both dino mode and wolverine mode. Does not care for Maximals, but realizes they are necessary for a total organic existence. Secretly jealous of their ability to convert to robot mode. Tremendous speed as wolverine borders on teleportation; negative ion shield in dino mode makes him impervious to firepower.

Mode: Bat to Alligator
Function : Warrior
Group : Mutant
Released: August 2000
Motto: "From the sky to the sea, they will fear and respect me."
Bio: Soundwave is a welcome ally to the forces. Bat mode makes him ideal for stealth aerial recon missions. Ultra-sensitive internal radar can detect even the slightest disturbances. Alligator jaws penetrate every known alloy. Tail sends seismic circuit-disrupting shockwaves through terra firma. Like his fellow Mutant warriors, Soundwave is dark and brooding; has a tendency to be overly dramatic.
