A small image has surfaced over the internet showing what seems to be our first look at a new Takara Tomy Beast Wars Again Tigatron vs Blackarachnia 2-Pack.
While it’s a low quality image we can spot that these figure seem to be redecos of the Kingdom Tigatron and Blackarachnia molds now featuring special cartoon accurate deco and extra paint apps. This could be the fourth special 2-pack of redecos released by Takara Tomy following BWVS-01 Eternal Beast Showdown Optimus Primal vs Megatron, BWVS-02 Stubborn Confrontation Rhinox vs Scoponok and BWVS-03 Cheetor vs Waspinator.
See the image after the break (we have also added an upscaled version) and the let us know your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
I placed my pre-order with The Falcon's Hanger and they're cutting off pre-orders on the 6th of June.
Big Bad Toy Store will probably keep their pre-orders open until just before their stock is due to arrive. They still have open pre-orders for the first two vs. packs.
At Pulse, yeah. They do that with all of their TT exclusives.
Pre-orders are gonna be limited time?
It's not due out until October, unfortunately.
Retailers are taking pre-orders now and hopefully we will start to see these packs roll out on a monthly basis starting with Optimus Primal vs. Megatron due in August, followed by Rhinox vs. Scorponok in September.
They are Japanese products, but I don't believe they are being exclusively carried by any particular Japanese retailer.
Is this cheetor and Waspinator a Japan exclusive and is it in stores? My cousin is in Japan right now and I'll ask her to snag me one if so lol
That’s pretty shitty. I can see why you’d be annoyed.
I've contacted Hasbro Pulse customer service about it. The only way to unsubscribe from these emails is to unsubscribe from all their emails. So I'd miss out on the notice of when pre-orders go live, etc… likely then missing out on the short window that some exclusives are available before they sell out.
Not being facetious, but have you tried just browsing while logged out and then only logging in to actually buy? That should prevent the spam emails caused by simply browsing the site.
I don’t have a Pulse account as I live in Japan but could this possibly be an account setting that you can toggle off?
Sorry for this rant here guys, but I'm just trying other avenues after repeated emails to Hasbro Pulse customer service have fallen on deaf ears…
Hasbro Pulse …. PLEASE stop spam emailing after I just look at a product on your website. Imagine if every time you just looked at something on Amazon if Amazon then emailed you MULTIPLE times about buying it? I looked at this Cheetor/Waspinator set and got 2 spam emails about buying it. I looked at the new ROTB Optimus Prime, saw it was sold out, and still got 2 spam emails from Hasbro Pulse about buying it… WHEN IT IS ALREADY SOLD OUT! I would unsubscribe just to stop these emails, but then I'd also unsubscribe from getting the actual informative emails about new drops, upcoming livestreams, etc. If these "take another look" type emails do not stop, I won't be renewing my premium membership again, and I've been a premium member from the start. Also since you've spammed me about this Cheetor Waspinator set, I've decided against buying it. Also also, since I'm not buying it, I'm cancelling my orders for the other 2 sets of Primal/Megatron and Rhinox/Scorponok that I had pre-ordered from Bigbadtoystore.com. I hope your partner is happy with that!

I'm in Korea so it'll probably be one of the better options for me.
I hope they dont do the transmutate and rattrap vs terrorsaur Lol
Yes they are but shipping and customs increase the price by 30 doblars, at least dor México
Will these be available for pre-order at Amazon Japan?
Head's up for anyone that snoozed too long on the Primal/Megs pack, DeepDiscount has them for preorder still and at about $20 cheaper than Pulse or BBTS. BBTS did have them up until a day or two ago. FOMO bug must have bitten the other fence-sitters at the same time as me.
BEAST WARS PRIMAL VS MEGATRON 2 PK Collectibles on DeepDiscount
Tigatron vs Blackarachnia might be my first skip. Stealing the spider legs from the toy colored version made Kingdom show accurate, and Kingdom Tigatron’s bot mode is basically perfect. I also don’t mind the more realistic paint details for the tiger mode.
That said I’ll wait for the real pictures to pass judgement.
Yeah, BAF BWX Transmutate would be undersized. She was as big as Rampage!
At this point I'm just hoping Super7 does Transmutate as part of their Ultimates line, I think that's our best shot of getting an accurate-looking articulated Transmutate that still scales with the Kingdom/Legacy Beast Wars characters.
You can get decent results by combining two GenSelect Transmutates, but that results in the head looking a little too undersized.
I still want that Transmutate BAF from the 10th anniversary to be re-issued as a single figure with actual articulation added to the mold.
Do you think Takara would repaint Transmutate?
