    With the return of rub-signs in the Classics line, is there any chance Hasbro might entertain the idea of reviving the Battle Beasts, possibly as a TF sub line? I was very fond of these little buggers back in the day, and it would be nice to have a little sub line like that to collect (one which wouldn't break the bank).

    Seems doubtful - at least the 'connected to TFs' part.

    Battlebeasts!!! Hell yeah!! I'd catch 'em all just like Pokemon...*ugh*...(Pokemon, that is). I doubt it'd ever happen, but it'd be sweet!!! I treasure my BB collection.

    I don't care for rubsigns, and will replace them with Reprolabels on my Classics.

    As for Battle Beasts, sure, why not?

    I would prefer the return of sticker sheets and G1 style weapons.

    This sounds like an online petition waiting to happen. I had a boxfull of them suckers when I was a kid.

    Me and a friend had them setup all ove rour kitchen one night. Ended up losing some in the cabinets for a while.

    I'd like to see the return of the Decoys. Would have been great to have them packaged in with the Classics line.

    I never had any Battle Beasts as a kid and know very little about them. I'm sure if they came out again I would buy some though.

    Haha, didn't they come from a Beast Planet in the Japanese toyline? Hmmm, Beast Planet... that sounds familiar.

    Eh, doubtful. I mean, there's always a chance that someone at Hasbro might think that the return of those cool little guys is a good idea and it could happen. However, considering that the first time Hasbro released them they omitted the fact that they were from the TF Universe... I don't see them putting them out as a TF sub-line this time either. Of course, I could be proven wrong, but I doubt it on this one.

    I've got a full set of the American ones, but only about half the Laser Beasts. It would have been cool if Takara could have also re-released those when they were re-releasing all the micromaster combiners. I typically don't care for blind-packed stuff, but something like that would have been a good outlet for them.

    Battle Beasts? Cool! I missed out on almost all of the originals becuse I didn't know it was a TF subline. I'd also like to see the return of the original Tech Spec/Bio Card that needed the red plastic strip to decode it. Though I guess that's doubtful.

    Am I the only one who doesn't care about Battle Beasts? I honestly didn't see what the appeal was back then, nor do I see it now.

    dude...FIRE beats WOOD, WOOD beats WATER, WATER beats FIRE....how is the appeal missed? jk

    i would love to see the return of battle beasts...i still have a ton...and i remember, when i was living in florida, i went to the beach, and took Eager Beaver with me cuz he was my favorite, and well, beavers like water, and the ocean is water...went swiming, got out...my pocket had turned itself inside out...and EB was lost to the sea....i was so upset...i still dont have an EB...someday ill find him and he shall be mine....

    on the plus side, about 5 months ago, a comic store near me had a dozen battle beasts in the 50 cent toy bin...i bought them all...

    I had a bunch of these when I was young. I think they could come back eventually. If Madballs can come back, so can Battle Beasts.

    I loved the Battle Beasts back then also,and I had about 25 or 30 back then,but
    now I only have 3 left,I wish I could find them somewhere cheap.And what I have
    left is the Eagle,Mole,and the Horse, I forgot what there names are. One day I
    will get my Battle Beasts back. I also would love them to make a come back,and
    maybe a few vehicles for them this time. And not to start a war but would love
    to see them bring back Garbage Pail Kids cards,I had lots of those too.

    I wish they would at least consider it. Maybe even some "Classics" Battle Beasts with a lot of articulation via the Microman line? Either way, I'd like to get the ones I really wanted from way back then. They were cool.

    Incidently, I always took the rub signs off my Transformers...well....except for the mini-spies.
