Transformer of the Day for January 3, 2009


-Faction: Maximal
-Era: Beast Wars / Beast Machines (1996-2000)
-Function: Spy
-Motto: “We’re All Gonna Die”
Notable Toy: Mega Beast Machines (Hasbro, 2001)

Notes: What better character to start off the Beastformers era than our favourite vermin. Rattrap’s strong characterization from Beast Wars certainly took a beating in Beast Machines, but I still love a toy that puts his knievel mode front and center in robot mode.


  1. [...] Notes: Before Transformers: Animated retroduced a neophyte Optimus Prime, Beast Wars brought us Optimus┬áPrimal, a commander who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, taking an undisciplined crew into a war and coming out a leader. Though his metamorphosis into a Transformers shaman was not the transformation fans had hoped for, the delayed release of the Supreme toy under the Robots in Disguise banner was most welcome. The boss monkey fits in perfectly in scale with Takara’s Masterpiece line, as well as Supreme Cheetor, Ultra Nightscream and Mega Rattrap. [...]
