Right in the middle of all the growing hype surrounding the reveal of Diamond Select’s Battle Beasts line (and comic series by IDW Publishing) comes something a little unexpected out of Japan. We have a couple of first looks at images from a Japanese catalog (or publication) depicting something that more closely resembles what we all knew and loved as Battle Beasts (or Beastformers) back in the 80’s.
The images show off a couple of new prototype figures that are very much in the same style of classic Battle Beasts/Beastformers but they are obvious updates. There is a TakaraTomy logo present in one of the images, along with a logo which reads: Beast Saga. The rest of the accompanying text is in Japanese so if anyone out there reading this can understand the text on the images, please hop on in our discussion thread and provide us all with a translation.
Could this be the proper continuation of the 80’s Battle Beast/Beastformers line that we have all been waiting for? Could this lead to reissues of the old 80’s product? Sound off in our discussion thread and let us know your thoughts!
EDIT: We’ve found a link to a Beast Saga placeholder page here. All of this text is also in Japanese so at the moment we are without any further details.
