    hi guys!
    how can I tell if a battle beast is good or evil?
    okay, the first 20 (??) aren't that hard to figure out, as their boxes are either red ( = autobot = good) or purple ( = decepticon = evil).
    but what about the rest of them?

    Well from the Japanese Cartoon the reptiles and aquatic animals were the bad guys, and the rest were good guys.

    I swear when I first saw the tread title I thought it said "Bare Breasts"

    Needless to say I was disappointed when I clicked on it.

    In Japan they were known as Beast Formers, and released as part of the TF line. In this case, I think Hoolagrin's assessment is pretty well on the money. Mammals and birds were allied with the Cybertrons, and reptiles, amphibians, fish etc sided with the Destrons. [edit] Actually, I've just had a bit of a Google, and found that the Japanese figs had Cybertron and Destron faction insignias as rubsigns instead of the wood, fire and water ones. [/edit]

    I don't think with Battle Beasts, though (the Hasbro-distributed version), that there were good guys and bad guys; there certainly wasn't in any of the fiction I saw. They were simply individuals who formed alliances of convenience; any Beast would fight any other if he had a reason to. Their only aim was to be King of the Hill.
