Site sponsors TFsource and BigBadToyStore have listed pre-orders for Takara Tomy's Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" and "EG" figures! No real images of the the "Beast Hunters" figures other than Hasbro stock imagery, however these pre-orders confirm Voyager Class Shockwave. As predicted the "EG" series is made up of new "Beast Hunters" Legion Class figures and older Legends Class molds. All are set to release in April.

Yay for Shockwave! :KREMZEEK:

And it looks like some of those EG listings were in fact Classics/Universe/Generations/RTS Legion molds.

I'm very curious at the re-release of many of the Legends. Didn't TomyTakara release most of those already?

They did, but expect them to be repainted, if minor.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

Well, it looks like Takara may be doing away with Arms Microns and stickers for their Beast Hunters line, but only time will tell. I've preordered all of them just in case they're superior to or different enough from the Hasbro versions. Hopefully we'll get some pics of these soon.

I'll wait to get excited until we get more details about the features of Takara's Beast Hunters line.

Does anyone have any notion why the deluxe and voyager figures numbering start at 11?
