TakaraTomy-Beast-Fight-Collection-001

Robotkingdom’s Facebook Page has added a ton of photos of TakaraTomy’s Beast Fight Collection aka Beastformers aka Battle Beasts. These are separate and very different from the Battle Beast line being put out by Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum. It appears the Beast Fight Collection will have an accompanying board game as well.

    I don't read Japanese. If anyone has any additional info on this, please feel free to share.

    I don't read japanese too. I will try to get a pic of the full page to help our japanese speaking members to translate it.

    Maybe SydneyY or one of the other guys over at TFW can take a look? (I'll post a link in the TA section over there). Technically, it's TF news since BB were an offshoot. Also, I wonder if Deefuzz has seen this thread yet.

    Near as I can tell, yes. Hopefully, someone who sees it will be able to translate.

    Fuck the DST stuff, this is what I'm most interested in.

    This pages are taken from 最強ジャンプ (Saikyo Jump) in the may issue (#5). I hope you like them.

    These look odd, the torsos don't really seem integrated into the whole to me, almost like an IPod with animal bits sprouting out of it. I wonder if the chest display is electronic this time around, might explain the block-y look. I am still looking forward to seeing more of them.

    Best hope is a place like Past Generation Toys or BBTS or even Robot Kingdom carries them. I don't think they'll see a domestic release due to conflicting licensing with DST over the Battle Beast property.

    It's astounding how much Battle Beasts have in common aesthetically with the Decepticon Pretenders. Do we know if they had any common designers on their brands back in the day?

    ^This.

    I am stoked about all these Battle Beast returns.

    I may have to do some importing as well. Maybe my LCS will order some cases and save me a little money. Hmm...

    Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me at all. Both lines were designed in-house by Takara, so it's quite possible.

    Supposedly Battlebeasts (US name) was a Transformer spin-off. I don't know the whole story as to what or why they were or how hey fit into the whole story but, yes, they are a TF extension.

    ...Actually, here is the Wiki entry on the whole thing...
    Battle Beasts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Explains better then I could.

    I am excited as all hell for this line! Preordered everything! I just finished my M.U.S.C.L.E. collection and swore I wouldn't collect anything else. Let's see just how understanding my wife really is...oops!

    I am well-aware of the connection between Battle Beasts and Transformers.

    It was only a TF spin-off in Japan. In the US, it was marketed as a completely separate toy line. Foster and I were discussing the possibility that the designers of the TF Decepticon Pretenders and the Beastformers were the same people.

    The designers at Takara were/are known for working on multiple lines and IPs at a time, unlike Hasbro's structure where each IP has its own team of designers (which is why Crossovers are designed by Hasbro, not Takara/Tomy).
