    Those are the Japanese versions of Beast Machines toys, right? I believe they were Toys R Us exclusive in Japan, so they were probably made in lower quantities than most Japanese TF toys.

    Also they are semi-popular among western collectors, since they are "show accurate" repaints, so there's not as much incentive to clearance them out (I think)

    Eh Beast machines would have ben better if they kept their beastwars designs but added different alternate molds on cybertron.

    They were Toys R us Japan Exclusives. I think there were only 5000 units for each one.
