The 2004 bit is in regards to Beast Wars Returns (Beast Machines) since Japan didn't get that series until that year.

Oh man, this mook is covering way more than I was expecting. I know it's not likely to happen, but it's enough to really make me wish that this would get an English version, even one that still focused on the Japanese side of things.

Is that was that nightmarish thing is to the left of the Diver/Niagra set? I asked on another forum yesterday, but I guess it got buried. I only remember the few kids/animals Animorph toys, nothing like that. My kids actually watched the show when it was on Netflix a few years back. I fully admit it was desperate on Hasbro's part to slap the TF brand on Animorphs. In the end it didn't really help, but I guess it probably didn't hurt either. Were they actually released in Japan? Or is this book just trying to cover everything from that time period?

ya, that is the main villain, whos name I had to google to remember (visser three). thats the Mega version, which had 3 modes.* edit: looking closer that is not the mega, that is the smaller figure. I forgot that the mega version was skittles colored. Technically, one of the few decent toys from the line. Though they did set the bar pretty low. I liked the trex trio, and the mega scale tobias is easily one of the best bird transformers ever made imho, except for his floppy falls off hands.

as for them in Japan, idk. I know according to the afore mentioned google search, there are 2 toys that are listed as non U.S. only.

I think it's covering everything. There's a lot of Hasbro-only stuff in the above pics as well as Takara stuff.

As for the Animorphs line, the human toys were bad. Very bad. Which is why I only got the four non-human toys that changed from aliens into monsters:
  • Mega class Ax/Scorpion
  • Mega class Visser Three/Inferno Creature
  • Ultra class triple changer Visser Three/Inferno Beast/Hork-Bajir
  • And even the uber-rare European-only Deluxe class Taxxon/Alien

Their construction, engineering, molded details, and gradient coloring make them feel like lost Transmetal 2 toys.

Curious. To my eye, this guy seems to share some more overt engineering, tying it in with TM2 (and beyond?).

If this mook ever gets an English language release, I'd have the pre-order same day.

The Taxxon definitely has the same walking legs gimmick as the Megatron Megabolt mold, yes.

Plus, the bipedal mode definitely has TM2 Scourge's legs.

Sort of. The double knees can actually straighten out, unlike Scourge's legs.

The Taxxon's legs just look better bent like that since straightening them out looks more silly, what with how tiny and thin they are compared the rest of its much larger and bulky upper body, which would thus make it look like it's walking on sticks for legs.

Oh I see, they straighten?? Silliness aside, it looks like the figure would be far too top heavy if that were the default.

The Beast Wars Mutants were cancelled Animorphs figures. Similar concept to Savage/Noble.
