I have a sort of nostalgia

I have a sort of nostalgia for Beast Wars. I'm a bit dismayed much of my collection was damaged from Hurricane Sandy but ah well.

BW reminds me of a time when it was conceivable to collect ever (near every) Transformer that was coming out.

Hey, I'm sorry to hear that, man. As far as I know, the worst storm that we had where I live was Hurricane Hugo. I wasn't even a year old yet back then but every so often I hear people talk about it.

Was there a sub-line that you liked in particular? (Original, Fuzors, Transmetals, Mutants, etc) Or did you like a few individual characters from different sub-lines?

Definitely the Transmetal

Definitely the Transmetal line. While I did like regular Beast Wars (especially the insects like Waspinator), the TM was both a fresh air of creativity and a bit of nostalgia due to the use of chrome which reminded me of robot toys of the 80's. My favorite was TM Waspinator. I still have both versions of the mold.

You should check out the new Waspinator mold. It's super show accurate, the Takara version has better color and paint apps. But if you love the character it's the best representation and one the better new official figures.

He looks pretty good, but the one I'm really after is Rhinox. 9.5 times out of 10 I'll probably be getting the Hasbro version though. Lol.

For me I'd say the regulars and the Transmetal II's. I loved the asymmetrical designs and to me they seemed like mutant hybrids of beast and machine rather than beasts turning into machines. Characters like Scourge, Jawbreaker, and TM II Cheetor could easily pass for cyborgs.

Excellent.

I always liked the early Beast Wars, prior to transmetals, when they had organic looking forms. :D

I have a soft spot for the originals as well. I guess that's why I'm trying to track down some more. Lol.
