In 1997, a two pack featuring new Beast Wars characters was released at the Botcon fan convention. The set included Fractyl (a Terrorsaur redeco) and Packrat (a Rattrap redeco). This pair came in a beautiful box featuring artwork by long time Transformers artist Andrew Wildman. I have now restored the review of this set with updated comments and brand new photos. Check it out here!

Sonar is one of the newest recruits in the Maximal ranks. His fierce and scary looks make him look almost more like a Predacon, but this guy is indeed a Maximal. This is also perhaps the best iteration of a bat that the Beast Wars Transformers line has come out with thus far.
Snarl is one of the 1997 release regular Beast Wars figures. It is a definite attempt at trying a slightly different kind of transformation while adding in an action "gimmick". To a degree it doesn't work but to another degree it is obvious some nice effort went into this design.
Snapper is one of the second line of basic sized Predacon toys for the Beast Wars Transformers line. Snapper would later be repackaged with Armordillo in Japan as part of the volcano playset.
