Would anyone buy Masterpiece Beastwars 7.5 inch sized toys?

"What? Transformers made from animals instead of vehicles and stuff? Doesn't sound so great, throw it to Kenner division, maybe they can make a quick buck or something."
Beast Wars, Machine Wars, Beast Machines... seeing a pattern? Coming soon: "Wars Wars"

I fucking love when people complain about shit like this. Like it's a crime for a female to show off her body.

...I mean granted, she's a robot, so she's showing off her body however, but I see similar things in comics too. People bitch about Power Girl's cleavage. I'm like, Power Girl's whole reason for existing is her cleavage.
I wasn't complaining about her boobs or cleavage or anything. I was complaining that BLACK-arachnia was wearing pink and yellow and had frilly shit glued onto her helmet. The high heels just make me laugh. It all looked awful. Her new helmet looked awful even without the frilly junk. Her face looked different- now she has big lips where before she had thin lips. And speaking of showing off her body being a crime, Hasbro gave her a major breast reduction. She looked stupid. Her original body with its solid looking helmet, sharp facial features, black and gold color scheme, and yes, the double-D's looked far better than her TM2 body.

I'm more of a Beast Machines Blackarachnia guy, myself. That thing was crazy lookin'. But the TM2 variety never bothered me any. I mean, I never went and got it, either, but I never looked at it and said "Crap".

TM II Blackarachnia is also one of my fave BW toys. The show gave her the pink boobs, but the toy actually had purple. Granted it was a "removeable bra" but hey. Just sayin. I also actually liked the heels with the exception that they made her tough to stand. The spider legs made up for that though.

Are you one of those guys who bitches that Bluestreak was never blue? Just because a colour is in a character's name doesn't mean they need to 'be that colour.' And the rest of her was black anyway.

People spend so much time worrying about whether a figure is "mint" or not that they never stop to consider other flavours.

HA,Kinda reminds me of when Hasbro named the energon shockblast recolor toy by the name "Sixshot". then proceeded to give the toy the most ugliest yellow color in creation. the toy only had 2 transfotmation molds. and not enough missles to be equal 6.

I suspose the best thing about the energon sixshot toy was that it came with translucent red plastic parts for the front & back chest. and other translucent red parts all over the toy. THIS WAS AWESOME Because I was able to swap out all the energon shockblast lime green translucent parts & transfer the red translucent parts that came with energon sixshot. to give the shockblast toy more or a G-1 colored shockwave color scheme.

-Now that I think about it, I could also just produce said parts in a lighter clear purple.

Yes, but his name doesn't really have anything to do with that, I just like the Diaclone color scheme better. And in Bluestreak's case it has more to do with matching the outside of the box to what's inside the box (something Hasbro has never done on any release of the G1 Bluestreak).
