    Interesting!
    All new molds is a surprise - I would have expected a box set of repaints to be more likely.

    I'm thinking that the Primal and Megatron would be the BW 10th. versions. I got nothing on the others.

    Tho it almost sounds like a Botcon set. Hmmmm...

    Intriguing.

    What a strange mix of characters, too. Cohrada? Archadis?

    Now who has the guts to pony up $225 for these mystery figures, sight unseen?

    Who else thinks these sound like Wonderfest 2007 exclusives? The show is on Feb. 25th, which would make it the right time...

    They're just using generic images; looks like a screenshot from the Beast Wars tv re-airing website.

    Sigh...Beast Wars has me by the short and curlies once again. I will probably buy these if they are indeed new molds, but not until I see some pics! I can try to be that strong at least.

    Guys reread the descriptions, the descriptions for prime/megs is the SAME as the one for the complete set! The only difference between the listings is that the 1st listing is for all of them, the 2nd one is just for primal/megs($69.99)

    So as in new molds, I think they are speaking about primal/megs, IF they are the same as the anniversary collection ones we got in the US, technically they would be new to japan(the new mold deluxe size ones). The rest I would think would be reissues.

    I wonder if when it says new molds that it's just Primal and Megs as those two are offered in a two pack besides the set. If that is the case, and if the others might be repaints, the I'd have to see just how different they'd be from all earlier versions before I'd order.

    Well, a new mold Blackarachnia would get a LOT of people buying.

    The original barely looked like the show model. Though that was Mainframe's fault.

    ...Yeah, preordered. I am really wondering about this set. It sounds good and I'd do practically anything for Beast Wars, but this is asking for a lot of faith (of course BBTS doesn't charge until it ships, yet...). It's funny that they're the first ones to know about it.

    In all, if this turns into what I (don't/do) hope it to be, then goodbye paychecks and a chunk of my savings for an HDTV. :cry

    Me. Pre-ordered in record time, sight unseen. Me loves Beast Wars and that's an interesting character mix. Just lacking MACH KICK...

    I preordered both the 8 figure set and the Primal/Megs set. I figure if the leaders are the only new molds I'll drop the 8 pack, if they're all new I'll get them all and drop the two pack. We'll probably get more concrete info before BBTS has them in hand.

    I don't believe that these are all new molds. Why would Takara develop all those molds, and only offer them for sale for one weekend, THIS weekend no less?

    It doesn't make any sense.
