Toy Review: "Beast Wars Neo" section reopened!

in Beast Wars Neo, News

After years of absence, I finally got around to restoring the text of my Beast Wars Neo toy reviews! Back in the day I used to mainly use scans of catalog photos for the toys, so I'll need some time to catch up and photograph the figures themselves - but for now you can read my thoughts from the distant past on one of the lesser known lines of Transformers, enjoy!

Beast Wars Neo

Saberback is a Beast Wars Neo Destron warrior. He is also one of the few Transformers to have the dinosaur mode of a stegosaurus. Unlike his predecessor Snarl (the Dinobot), Saberback is meant to be an organic stegosaurus, presenting Transformers fans with a new and exciting toy to add to their collection.

Beast Wars Neo Magmatron Toy Review

in 1998, Action Figure Review, Beast Wars Neo, Beast Wars the Second, Combiner / Gestalt, Destron, Ultra

Beast Wars Neo

Name: Magmatron
Beast Modes: Gigantosaurus, Elasmosaur & Queztalcoatlus
Allegiance: Destron
Function: Emperor of Destruction

Magmatron's beast mode is comprised of three dinosaurs. An all around warrior more wildly evil than even Galvatron. On the one hand, he is violently enthusiastic, while on the other he can judge situations quite reasonably. He is also charismatic, enough so that the other Destrons acknowledge his superiority.

Beast Wars Neo

KILLERPUNCH

Name: Killerpunch
Beast Mode: Styracosaurus
Allegiance: Destron
Function: Intelligence Officer

The best intelligence gatherer of the Destrons, specializes in laying out all manner of traps based on the information he gains, then lying in wait and launching attacks that outwit his opposition. His Head Punch isn't just an attack; it also has a homing function and lets no information escape its sight, making it feared by friend and foe alike.

Beast Wars Neo Hardhead Toy Review

in 1998, Action Figure Review, Beast Wars Neo, Beast Wars the Second, Deluxe, Destron

Beast Wars Neo

Name: Hardhead
Beast Mode: Pacheycephalosaurus
Allegiance: Destron
Function: Ground Forces Commander

A large bump on Hardhead's cranium makes for a strong skull, but as its interior isn't exactly packed with cerebral circuitry, he's not that intelligent. He's a stubborn type who doesn't listen to what people tell him. His Head Attack, a head-bump-first charge is surprisingly destructive. Hardhead also wields a Pilesaber blade, and is an expert in swordplay.

Beast Wars Neo Bazooka Toy Review

in 1998, Action Figure Review, Basic, Beast Wars Neo, Beast Wars the Second, Destron

Beast Wars Neo

Name: Bazooka
Beast Mode: Anklosaurus
Allegiance: Destron
Function: Fortress Guard

A rarity among Destrons, Bazooka is serious and single-minded, a rustic samurai type who will not renege on anything he's said. Even Magmatron trusts him for this. Using the hammerlike lump attached to the end of his tail, Bazooka smashes open enemy head modules with his Gigaton Stamp.
