Via Baidu user 俊阳May we have our first in-hand images of the upcoming Transformers Legacy Beast Wars Inferno.
It seems this figure is out at stores in China (together with Armada Starscream), and now we have clear images of the packaging, robot mode and an extensive set of images of the instructions (
no alt mode yet). As we can see from the images, Inferno is quite a detailed mold with a good level of articulation and a cartoon-accurate design.
Update: Ant mode images added!
See all the images after the break and then let us know your impression on the 2005 Boards!
Just saw him at Target next to Legacy Armada Starscream. Didn’t pick him up This time. Right after Christmas, y’know.

Okay, that was fun, but how about we go search for Inferno now?
I need to go out and hit some Targets tomorrow….
Got mine at target today!View attachment 29733506 View attachment 29733507 View attachment 29733508 View attachment 29733509
He's a great toy. I love the opening mouth and the great ant mode

I absolutely love the beast mode. It’s just so deeply satisfying to have him stand so tall and not collapse under his own weight like the original. Fantastic detail and the eyes are just so wonderful expressive.

Bot mode is certainly elevated by the fantastic head sculpt and it’s great to see that fourth hidden butt flap. I know some are put off by the faux legs, but they push all the right nostalgia buttons for me.
Mine arrived yesterday. I love him.
"Feeling cute. Might get blown up later idk…"

I can't put him down, he's awesome and I love the beast mode. View attachment 29720334 View attachment 29720335
One of the greatest shelfwarmers of Beast Wars getting redone and then remolded into one of the other greatest shelfwarmer of Beast Wars would be incredible. But as someone who unironically loved Transquito as a kid, that would be a day 1 preorder.
On a serious note, Inferno in hand is great. The beast head transforms in such a way that there's no visible bot parts from top or bottom, and the ant legs are super stable. On top of that, the ant-butt pegs together around the legs, which also peg together. The whole thing is *super* stable.
Also, for any JP BW fans or even JP-curious….this guy could totally pull off a great Transquito/BigMos.
Hauler was so horrified in that moment that his face broke, and he was stuck with that expression forever.
Bad news, chief. I got it in hand and it's only made things worse.

Not brave enough here.
I don't think it's even that. It seems like the peg/hole is still there of anyone was brave enough to try busting it apart.
Yea, that always bugged me as well
Ah right I remember this. Their goal was to provide character updates that are updates in robot mode but more real world accurate accurate beast mode ( accurate to real animals not the show while the robot mode are fairly accurate to the show)
Damn budget cuts….
What annoys me about that isn't the inaccuracy, but the fact you can tell at some point the tail was planned to come off his forearm and serve as an accessory with a 5mm port and then….possibly for stability reasons? They ditched it.
