    What makes you think that Beast Saga is related to Transformers in any way, shape, or form?

    Because Beastformers were featured in the 5th episode of Transformers Headmasters titled "Rebellion on Planet Beast".

    As long as they re-release the little bat with the eye-patch and the hook hand, I'll be happy.

    Awesome! I'd be up for a new line of Beastformers (obviously I like the things, as my avatar implies). And these look a lot more faithful to the look and feel of the originals than other recent attempts (the minimates version, the little statues we saw protos of a while back, etc.).

    I consider my Battle Beast collection to essentially be part of my G1 collection. If these end up being released, I think I'll consider them part of Classics.

    EDIT: Looks like instead of rubsigns they might have gone with separate chest panels on these. I wonder if they rotate like Bot Shots'.

    I believe the toys were connected TFs on the packaging in Japan too. Also appeared in the Dreamwave comics.

    Basically in Japan Battle Beasts were a spin-off of Transformers and shared the TF universe.


    -ZacWilliam, wish Hasbro had done that here too. It would have been neat, though I liked them plenty as a kid even without that.

    Now that's a line I could get behind. I've always wanted to collect Battle Beasts. Hope this happens soon, like this year.

    I was never into Battle Beasts as a kid but I found one at a playground. I don't remember which one though. After watching Headmasters I had developed an appreciation for them. I only have a few but I do have my favorite: Pirate Lion. I hope we get him and some of the others that appeared in Headmasters.
