    Cobra Zartan is heavy into it. I believe he's very close in getting done. He's just working on the really hard to get japanese exclusive ones now. PM him.

    I've been a huge fan of these since I first encountered them in the 80's. I finally completed the US ones, but now one figure needs replacing; Back on the hunt again...

    Didn't they come in little japanese boxes, with either a decepticon or autobot logo on them? I would love to get the ones with a decepticon logo on them....

    As cz said, I'm one of them too, but have spent a bit more time getting rid of some and only holding onto my faves. Zariganian FTW.

    Seeing as I still have a boxed Japanese BB, to say nothing of guys like cobra zartan with enormous Battle and Laser Beast collections, it's quite easy to debunk the whole "BBs have TF rubsigns" rumor. Sadly, ToyFare's article a while ago didn't help matters. But allegiances are associated with several of them, the easy rule being birds and mammals equal Cybertron, and reptiles and aquatic life equal Destron, with some exceptions. Kinda like Maximals and Predacons.

    Yeah I am a big fan, was a big fan of these as a kid too. My collection is quite small right now, but I am wanting to expand.

    Its tough because the little buggers are so damned expensive!

    The last one has my Laserbeasts in the front row. It's a pity some of them have the wrong arms to replace ones that were missing when I got them, but them's the breaks.
