Beast Wars Tigatron (10th Anniversary TakaraTomy Reissue)

I gave up trying to get an original bright white Takara Tigatron a long time ago.

I just don't get why Hasbro painted theirs in such an off-white cream color.

Craptastic it was.

Beast Wars Tigatron is the the 1999th Transformer that I've acquired.

Tomy-Takara Beast Wars repaints


So in Japan, they are rerunning Beast Wars and Tomy-Takara is rereleasing some Beast Wars molds again.

However, some of them differ from what Hasbro recently released and 2 of them stand out enough that I'll want to get them.

Takara Reissue CheetorThe repainted Cheetor is really nice figure and looks so much better than the previous releases and repaints of it.

Dare I say he almost looks exactly like he does in the show, or as much as one can expect from that mold.

I'll definitely be getting him soon.

And the Black Arachnia repaint is really good too and far superior to the original Hasbro version that looks nothing like the character.

On the whole, there never has been a real good figure for the original pre-Transmetal 2 Black Arachnia. She was pretty much just a repaint of Tarantulus where you swapped the "mutant" heads for one character or the other. Pretty lame but hey, I can see why the did it.

Takara Repaint Black ArachniaBut leave it to the Japanese to finally repaint it looking like the actual characters.

And speaking of decently painted practically show-accurate characters, Evebird got a huge lot of Takara Beast Wars Returns figures off of Ebay recently.

I can't find the link he sent so I can't verify what he got. I may snag some of his extras.

Then again, I've been buying a ton of crack lately and any sense of budge went out the door in January.

And JN, who sold me the Fort Max, also has a Grand Slam and some miscellaneous Headmaster parts I may want.

I promised myself that if I ever acquired a certain figure I'd probably stop collecting.

Yeah. Right.

Addiction. Lame ass adult toy collector addiction.


10th Anniversary Beast Wars Cheetor, Rhinox, and Waspinator

And lo, to my suprise, there was wave 1 of the 10th Anniversary Beast Wars figures so I picked up Cheetor, Rhinox, and Waspinator.

Now yes. I own the originals. But of course, the addict in me needed 1/2 of the Transmutate figure they come with. Six pieces of Transmututate being spread out among waves 1 and 2.

So basically Transmutate ends up costing me $90.


What's a crack addict to do?

Numbers in Collection: 1519, 1520, 1521 (and 1521.5 if you count half of Transmutate)
