the chest drawer on my tripty is fine. nice and tight even with full tilt clinging on

@  Dekafox : (25 September 2017 - 10:14 PM)

Mine seemed to ahve teh slight door warping too but it's not bad enough that Full-Tilt's weight pulls it open, so I haven't bothered with chest screws yet

@  Dekafox : (25 September 2017 - 10:13 PM)

I did the hip compression too when I got mine earlier today. It was hard to tell when I did it enough(and the end of the spring still hurt a bit after a bit of doing it) but seemed to work fine. Also seemed very tail-heavy when I worked on getting him to stand angled instead of upright

@  BlackMax : (25 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

@Tm_ You can be a dude on a TF message board, that's not half bad.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 September 2017 - 05:06 PM)

Thats good.. I can't do those kinda of fixes... can't do anything really.

one of his legs was tight so i had to do the fix. hes all better now

Sad to say, I'll likely be picking up The Last Knight this week. If nothing else, it should look fantastic on 4K Blu-Ray, and my 4K OLED is still new enough I'm willing to watch things I hate if they look stunning

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Yeah, I picked it up last time when it got the 3-D conversion re-release treatment

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2017 - 12:57 AM)

To be honest I think I'd rather a copy of The Lion King over a copy of The Last Knight, and I already own a copy of the Lion King on bluray...

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 12:36 AM)

I spent some time looking for a thread about The Lion King before I figured out the movie you actually meant

Arrrg! Just as I was about to make my first purchase from BBTS in years: their website up and dies on me.

Picked up Slugslinger. Awesome figure except for some unfortunate mold degradation. His fists are so loose and held just by friction. Hopefully they don't start falling out randomly.

Oh great, my PS3 stopped reading discs. Brilliant.

@Robowang I have one somewhere and I can send it to you. Don't worry about it. Just let me find it

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2017 - 04:43 PM)

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:24 PM)

That whole flat-rate shipping thing makes the math easy.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

4 bucks

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

Anybody have the TR PM OP trading card they don't want? I lost mine! Will pay you for it.

These look sweet. Sadly, I imagine DST's versions will stop these from having a domestic release here icon-screamer.gif.


I wouldn't be too sure of that. Hasbro/Takara are much larger more powerful companies than DST, with much bigger broader markets and lots more money. At most I think it could keep them from being called "Battle Beasts" if released here, but y'know I honestly doubt even that.

If Has/Tak want to release something here, a check to DST would be pretty simple for them I think.


-ZacWilliam, of course who knows if Hasbro would want to, but I'd love it if they did. Oh the blind-pack spending...


If Has/Tak releases these here, as some sort of Beyblade or Bakugan (sp?) Rival, they should call it Beast Wars and roll it into the Prime Mythos.

Bakugan still holds lots of space in toy aisles, and having Beyblade didn't stop Hasbro from introducing Botshots.

I'd think then that already having a line of figures with cubes in their chests as part of a game sold here would make it a pretty safe bet that we won't be seeing Beast Fight on US shelves any time soon.

I like the aesthetics of these. These are much more toys than the Diamond Select ones, and that's one of the parts of the franchise Diamond Select doesn't seem to have grasped.

Now these, THESE are something I could get behind.

I like how they properly capture the ridiculousness of warring animals clad in armor. The very realistic heads are superb (if you look at that Dolphin and don't crack a smile there is something wrong with you...)

The DST versions seem to hung up on being "super serious" warring mystical animal stuff... feeling like a throwback to the late 90's/early 00's. Like the random (lame) stuff you'd find in the back of your comic book store, perhaps at a discount.

I'm definitely going to have import some of these, and reward the better line with my monies!

I thought Mindwipe. Maybe they are speakers on his shoulders? They looked like turbines to me.


The Walrus also appears to be wearing a bathtub/submarine.

I'll still buy the minimates because they'll be fairly cheap and accessible. The design isn;t to bad, and some of the accessories fix my main problem with them (the legs).

These are incredible. They're everything updated battle beasts should be. And more. I'm so pumped for the game as well. I think these would definitively have a place on toy shelves over here. I wouldn't even care if Hasbro dusted off "Beast Wars" and through that on their packaging.

Now, the real question is, when can I buy these?

Praise being said, I still want some minimate battle beasts. All this product is making up for their complete absence as a line for over 20 years. I wouldn't want to sacrifice one for the other-I want them all.

Great minds think alike! Although anything new would be incredible. Maybe when Diamond bought the license it was a reminder to TakaraTomy the line existed in the first place and they decided to take another crack at it. It does seem weird that both versions of Battle Beasts are coming out THIS fall, after essentially 20 years of nothing.

Also, I want to know how to play this damn game yesterday.

Since they has been finally revealed, I can now say I did some work for this line, mostly on the sea creatures assortment.
So far I recognize Pirazon (the piranha) and Coelence (the coelacanthus) - other may have been re-drawn or revised (like with the swordfish guy, they changed the design quite a bit, but kept my weapons designs).
Great to see the toyline coming to (plastic) life!

That's pretty awesome to hear. I thought they did a good job of capturing the general aesthetic of the old toys so hearing you were involved somewhat makes sense. Good Job. icon-hotrod.gif


-ZacWilliam, hopes there are more coming. Bases and Chariots maybe too, like the originals had. Me and my bro had a bunch of those.
