Does anyone know if the Animorphs were designed by the BW team? They seem a lot closer in feel to BW than either the Star Wars or Marvel line (which had seperate teams) did to contempory TF lines.
Admittedly they didnt do a much better job on the human forms, but then trying to turn one third of a Trex into a realistic human is a tough job. Turning an Xwing into a robot version of an Xwing pilot really should be easy in comparison.
They were designed by the TF team. Thus IMO, they are actual legitimate transformers way more than SW or Marvel which basically were poorly designed non-TF transforming toys with the TF name slapped on them.
I got rachel when they first came out with the intentions of customizing her into a maximal named Sahara. She's been on my to-do list ever since. The tri-rex is a great dinosaur, and are not a bad toy. They're just terrible humans. And the giant alien thing is neat. I got that as a monster alien for my beasties to fight.
