Some ebay ads have popped up offering these latest vintage reissues of Transformers Beast Wars and while they’re pretty tagged, sellers have access to official Hasbro stock images.
So below you will see the archive photos of Tigatron, which is in a shiny white deco that has never been released in the West, and Scorponok who also has a change of deco with the plastic used for the body being rather gray. that black. For these toys to be available now, it means that they are well past the production stage and could appear at retail (i.e. Walmart) at any time. And yes, these are still exclusive.
And here are the e-bay links for those interested:

In fact, I’m digging the silverest body of the Scorponok figure compared to the original. Do we have an idea of the price for him? This is the first Mega sized toy they released from the original range …
I still have the originals for both, so it’s not a necessity for me, but I hope they continue that line with the characters from Transmetal at some point. I have almost none (just Optimal Optimus and the Dragon Megatron).

I guess the Voyager price for Scorponok. Or Hasbro will just say “fuck it” and call it Ultra Beast and give it the Leader Class award. I mean, check out the Rattrap reissue …

By today’s standards, Rattrap is pretty much a luxury.
Still, I have no idea how big Scorponok is. But if it comes in a box, it will be priced at a traveler C $ 45 like Tigatron at the bare minimum.

I find it funny that on the back packaging of the reissues they classify both Cheetor and Rattrap as “MEGA”. Bruh, I remember buying these toys when I was 11 in 1996 and neither Cheetor nor Rattrap were Mega Beasts, lawl.

Optimal Optimus being the “bigger” toy in this line costing $ 30 USD.
So, 25 years later, Cheetor Doubler in Price is not surprising, but Rattrap goes 4X is just a highway robbery. The Ultra could have been sold for double the original price of $ 40 (there’s a LOT of empty space in this package), but I think they wanted to try and line it up closer to the $ 50 price of the leader of Modern Generations.
So based on my memories of my original BW collection, I had:
1996 Tigatron (given to me by a friend)
1997 Magnaboss & Tripredacus (spent $ 40)
1998 TM Optimus and Megatron ($ 30 spent), Depth Charge and Rampage ($ 40 spent) and Optimal Optimus ($ 30 spent)
1999 TM 2 Megatron and Tigerhawk (spent $ 40) TM2 Dinobot (spent $ 10) and
* Optimus Minor was given to me by the children of a few friends. I indoctrinated them in the TF since I was not yet married or had my own children. Could they have chosen a worse toy . Of course, I never said anything and accepted it with pleasure.
So overall from 1996 to 1999 I spent just under $ 200 ($ 190) on my entire standard BW collection! (I say standard because I was starting to go to conventions and returning heavily to Original Transformers, I had convention exclusives and had multiple BW II and Neo toys) Of course I was going to college part-time and had a job that paid less than $ 7 an hour, until 1999 until I got into banking and started earning $ 11 an hour.
