    BBTS has a bunch of Japanese Beast Wars figures up they just listed as for pre-order with really good prices. The highlights are Lio Convoy Flash version (clear) and Magmatron each listed at $29.99.

    Anyone looking to fill out thier Beast Wars line may want to check it out. Looks like some really good prices on a lot of figures.

    Magmatron and Starscream & BB are great deals! I'd have jumped on them if I didn't have them already.

    I know--I just bought a Magmatron for a few bucks more on eBay and I didn't see the Starscream 'til after it sold out.

    I've got a US Magmatron already. He's sitting with my Dinobots.... is there a difference in the molds at all? (i.e. something the US took away)

    I was wondering this a little whiles back--can't find the thread, but the general consensus I got was 'No,' except for maybe some differing paint shades. I stuck with the US edition also.

    It's BBTS, dude! Throw the pre-order on there--you don't pay for it 'til it's in, so no worries. Also, I'm terribly irresponsible when it comes to excited purchases.

    Man, I'm pissed... I just paid $40 each for both Flash Leo Prime and Galvatron last weekend at Otakon. ;_; But whatever, I might just buy Rampage, seeing as I like his colors more than the US version. Everything else isn't all that hard to find.

    Different shades of color. J-Magmatron is a bit more metallic. Also, I think the US sword(s) is a little more blunt edged... but not positive about that one. So no real huge difference.

    If only Lio Convoy was the original version, although Galvatron sounds pretty temping.

    Probably would've caved on Starscrem & BB, even though I have the molds twice already, but it was sold out by the time I got there. I've got pretty much everything else. They are definitely good prices, though. Everyone who doesn't already have BW2 Galvatron, buy him right now. He is far too awesome for words, and $25 is a great price.

    Finally caved, eh? :D

    Yes. Beast Wars Galvatron is definitely a fun toy. Ah, it looks like Magmatron is sold out now.
