    rakuten.co.jp is reporting that two new Beast Wars reissues have been announced - Gimlet aka Sea Clamp and Motorarm aka Ram Horn, both from Beast Wars Second, and two thirds of the Tripledacus (Tripredacus) gestalt. They're set for a release in August.

    Although not confirmed, I'd imagine DJ (aka Cicadacon) will be following on right behind them to complete the combiner.

    Thanks to Transformers @ the Moon for the news.

    Other than sharing the same mold, Tripledacus and Tripredacus along with their component parts are not related in anyway, so I find its kinda misleading to say things like Gimlet is also known as Sea Clamp...

    Awesome news! I actually wanted Tripledachus rather than Tripredacus because I thought the colors looked better...so I'll definitely be looking forward to these, and hope they re-release DJ as well!

    Exactly...

    Still excited about these 2 releases as the JPN versions looked a lot better than their U.S. versions.

    hmm, would prefer if they'd carry on with the BW show character personally...
    Hopefully they will after these.

    Have they planned rereleases of the original Rattrap, Quickstrike, and Terrasaur yet? Because those are the only reissues I'd really want...

    That was the Mariachi guys, and DJ always peed all over the place. Those three are Mexican-stereotypes! (bound to be worth something if the shit hits the fan!) Damn funny, though...
