Night Viper is one of the mid-2000 basic Beast Machines Transformers releases. Rather than another four legged (or six legged) critter, Night Viper adds a snake into the Maximal mix. Many speculated that the Japanese Beast Wars Neo toy Cohrada would be repainted and released as part of Beast Machines, but fans were pleasantly surprised to see that Night Viper is a whole new mold.
After many years of absence from this site, I have begun restoring the reviews that started it all: Beast Wars! This will be slow going as I have a lot of other sections to restore while putting up new content. For now, I've kicked off the restoration with four reviews:
Bantor is one of the regular Beast Wars Transformers 1998 Fuzors toys. His organic parts are a mix of a baboon and a tiger. To a large degree, this fusion works and the tech specs are written up to reflect the action feature of the the toy and the beast modes and integrate them into the personality of the character.
Air Hammer is one of the first regular sized Fuzor toys to be released. He uses a slightly different approach to transform but overall the effect is not as impressive as past regular Beast Wars Transformers toys such as Airazor.
An enthusiastic and adventure seeking Autobot, Meteorfire once hosted the popular Alien Hunt! program where he would dare to go where others did not! Check out my review and gallery of the "Battle Call" Meteorfire figure!
