    The repaints of these toys look really great... does anyone have the whole set? Any pics out there?

    I have had the original set for about ten years now. I always had a hell of a time transforming that beetle!! :p

    I REALLY want the reissues since the color scheme on BW2 Tripledachus always appealed to me more than Tripredacus.

    I'd buy them, but I don't think Tripredacus is worth $90, no matter how you cut it.

    Since they have no plan of reissuing DJ, not worth it at all :(

    How do you know this? Its pretty logical that they would... or at least that they had planned to.

    Any word on wether or not these are selling in Japan? It seems like they're warming the shelves around the internet vendors.

    I agree though... $90 is too much for what is basically two basics and one basic/deluxe...

    Telemocha Gimlet doesn't come with the part to form Tripledacus' weapon. It was then became quite apparent to Japanese fans that TakTom never intended to reissue all 3 as a combiner :(  The line's finished with poor sales anyway.

    Thanks for the info.

    It figures that the line failed when you look at their stargegy... What were they thinking??

    If these guys show up on clearance, it might be cool to pick them up to change the colors of my Beast Wars set...but DJ is the one most in need of better scheme..oh well.
