    I was just thinking, as Battle Beasts appear in the Japanese Transformers (Head Masters) would you consider Battle Beats to be part of your Transformers Toy collection or display them alongside your Transformers?

    For me it’s a Grey area! :inquisiti

    I do and I plan to get the Battlebeast to go along with my Headmasters display.

    That's cool, I’ve ordered a bunch of them, I wasn't sure whether to display them with my Transformers or other action figures.

    Yep ! They're both quite expensive though ! I'm keep checking Ebay for the odd cheap one ! Single battle Beasts are going for about £4.99 + P&P each. If you want to get a few the costs can mount.

    They do look good next to Headmasters though !

    They're a spin-off so I don't think it's too far fetched. I would display them on a shelf next to the TFs but on a different one. That's just me though.

    I think they'd look cool on Fort Max and Scorponok in city mode, with the head figures of the other HMs. They'd also look all right as gunners riding on the top of the Targetmasters in vehicle mode, holding the TM weapon from behind. I don't have any Battle Beasts but maybe I'll come across some at my next Botcon or something.

    I've got a big bag of them somewhere in my TF storage. Regardless of that I don't really count them as part of Transformers though, even though they appeared in the Japanese series.

    I didn't realize the connection when I was a kid, but now I definitely consider them a part of Transformers.

    Still missing about a half dozen of the Laser Beasts, but not real motivated to go after them at the moment.

    I've just bought GRUESOME GATOR without Rub for £2.99 + £1.20 for P&P. A seller on Ebay is selling a good few for that price without Rubs, the ones with Rubs are going for £4.99 + £1.20.

    don't have any and don't plan on buying any. So no, I wouldn't think of them as part of my TF collection.

    It would be nice if Reprolabels could get into Battle Beast rubsigns.

    it would be mate. I'll propably get a few more without Rubs on to build them up, then when I have a fair few I'll start and buy some of the more expensive ones. To buy one in the original packaging it costs about £30.00.

    It's weird, I remembered those things only after I wiki'd them. The thing that popped out for me was the fire, wood, water thing. But I don't remember actually owning them. They seem familiar yet they don't...maybe I had a friend who had them.

    They were very cool. I'm sure if they did a Battle Beast cartoon I would have watched it.

    Have you seen them in Headmasters ? I've watched that episode a couple of times now.

    Never watched Japanese episodes. If they did an actual Battle Beast series, that would have been cool.
