    I just snagged a Killer Punch, Crazybolt, Randy, Survive, & Mach Kick--which means once they arrive I'll have collected the complete BW Neo line, aside from the Blentron... they're so spendy, not sure they're worth it to me...

    An EPIC battle between Megatron in his season 1 body, riding his Transmetal beast mode, and Cheetor who is in robot mode. 20180414_012702.jpg

    Sorry, these are the only figures I have for these characters. :confused2

    These two are a great pair. They even have the same colors. Torca would look great with a couple Noctorros flanking him.

    That's great!
    And every now and again you can find good deals on them on Yahoo Japan.
    Elphaorpha is usually the most expensive of the three. But they all look great. I dig Elphaorpha and Drancron's colors more than the US releases.

    Noctorro was such a surprisingly fun mold for me. I bought it on a whim and it was well worth it.

    I honestly thought I posted the next pic of the blackarachnia custom I’m working on :)  anyhow I used an orange marker on her just to see how orange looks, I will be painting them when it’s complete. I’ll admit it’s very finicky trying to attach the picks lol can’t wait to see what it looks like complete

    Also my dad was cleaning out the attic and he went to throw out a box of power rangers and I found a black and gold villain I think, so I took him because I thought it would make a good ravage, so after taking the figure I found two little blasters and a tail In a separate box of toys :)  so I just finished his body and that I just need to add a predacon symbol somewhere and paint his tail.

    Of my collection I only kept an original Transmetal Tarantulas, the Beast Wars Reborn Primal/Megatron 2-pack, Telemocha Tarantulas and Cheetor. Wish I'd kept more after the big purge if I'm honest. Looking at the prices of some of that stuff now makes me weep. However I was suffering form an addiction that required some drastic measures to put me on the straight and narrow at the time, did me a lot of good to get rid.

    just for anyone curious.. i had a few figures when I started... maybe 10 and its been over $1500 now to get to this point. started this collection back in august of last year.. so that's current prices.

    in short, very expensive but very worth it to me.

    i personally have faced many troubles with tf collecting and because of those troubles have never owned many beast wars figs because i always felt that it would be a waste to buy them more then once. so if i bought a figure and sold it later then bought it again, id be really upset, but now ive come to terms with my tf issues and will not be selling them anymore. so im finally going to build up my beast wars collection!

    ill put up pics and opinions of my acquisitions over time!

    do it! I don't think there has been a better time for beast wars collecting. Just take a look at MP Dinobot (some serious love went into that design).

    Wowsers! This is why I could Never do it again, must have cost me less than £800 to get the entire show cast from Beast Wars and Beast Machines back in the early 2000's. Glad your happy with your collection, it's always a nice feeling to get an entire set.
