Beast Hunters Japan EZ Collection First Listings

HAS22385

Hot on the heels of the earlier Beast Hunters listings from Takara-Tomy, we have some listings of a Beast Hunters EZ Collection coming to Japan in April, also from Hobby Ark:

EG-01 Convoy
EG-02 Bumblebee
EG-03 Prowl
EG-04 Smokescreen
EG-05 Hound
EG-06 Tank Megatron
EG-07 Starscream
EG-08 Airachind

Once again no pictures are available. All are priced at SGD$13, implying they are all the same size class – in other words, Legion class. Of those named, you might recognize Bumblebee, Smokescreen and Airachnid from the first assortment of Beast Hunters Cyberverse – but there are other names on the list such as Prowl, Hound and Tank Megatron who are completely new to us.

Don’t take the list as gospel though – EG-01 takes the name “Convoy”, Optimus Prime’s old Japanese name which has not been used for a mainstream line in Japan since 2009. However there are hints here at some kind of new Cyberverse / Legends class toys in some shape or form – time will tell what they actually are!

    So that confirms Shockwave...

    Doesn't look like Arms Microns are returning... Too bad...

    So what are G1-10?

    Can't wait to spend $35+shipping for Beast Hunters Bumblebee. Totally worth it.

    Shockwave? pfft, who cares? It's all about Bumblebee.

    I don't think there's supposed to be a "G01 - G10". There might either be an error in the codes for these figures and the "G1" is actually GI or GL, or for whatever reason these figures are going to be coded as G1, which would be weird. Most if not all Takara Transformers lines start with Prime as the first figure, and with Bumblebee following the three Voyagers, the other Deluxes probably follow after him.

    VERY interesting.... Prime still has green windows BUT a blue sword.

    Thanks for sharing the news, Thundershot... voyager shockwave has made my night!

    I think the most interesting bit of this news, to be honest, is that it means Beast Hunters is gonna air straight after S2 finishes in Japan.

    Which makes me suspect that whether or not we're getting any seasons after Season 3 is up in the air... BH always struck me as a season that would either get combined with the first 52 episodes in Japan or with a future set of episodes, given we aren't getting full seasons at this point.

    That would make sense actually.
