New Galleries: Takara Beast Wars D-4 Tarantulas and D-8 Blackarachnia

Takara Beasties - Here is something special regarding variants in the Beast Era. For Takara's version of Tarantulus and Blackarachnia, there were variants that are noticeably different from the Hasbro versions. The key to knowing if the boxed toy is the variant or not is the green sticker on the front of the package. If it has the white and red sticker, it's the same as the Hasbro version. The green sticker versions are intended to be the more screen accurate versions, though that will be for you to judge when you will see the galleries.
