3/21    Several people have pointed out things I missed in G1 character pages. For instance, Thrust and Dirge did appear in Beast Wars (2, in Japan).   I also have learned that Roadbuster, Whirl, Topspin & Twintwist appeared in the European Transformers comics! I've also updated the Dinobot Snarl page having foolishly overlooked the 1997 BW character.  All pages have been updated w/ the info and a few new links about it. I've also updated the BW Jetstorm page and the BMach Jetstorm pages after being reminded by several astute fans that Jetstorm is a G2 Character name :)  Oops!

(Okay they're great but probably not anywone's favorites!)  In addition to the Jumpstarters: Topspin & Twintwist, I've added the Deluxe Vehicle Autobots: Whirl & Roadbuster.   Much to our dismay, none of these guys have ever appeared in the cartoons OR comics.  Correct me if I'm wrong!
2/5   Check out the What's new @ Mainframe Page, where they've added a totally cool Voice Actors page for Beast Machines.  (The flash-Java version added 1/27 locked up my computer both times I tried to load it but the 1/24 version worked just fine for me. :)
