Beast Saga: Massive Multipack Price Drops

I recently picked up the last 2-inch figure set for my Beast Saga collection, and just a few days later noticed it for sale even cheaper - prices seem to be dropping like rocks on this line, with some items like the amazing 6-pack for under $20.  If you've been wanting to experience this Battle Beasts revival for yourself, there's never been a better time.  Prices might get cheaper, but this certainly isn't bad.

Singles are still hovering around $9-$12, so if you missed your Kangaroo because your favorite importer just never happened to get it, it's a good time to finish that set up too.

Review: Takara-Tomy Beast Saga Rynas Burst Action Figure

Takara-Tomy Beast Saga Rynas Burst Action FigureFamiliarity breeds contempt - if you want a line to get some long-term love, martyr it. Rynas Burst was a clear, almost completely unpainted redeco from Beast Saga, a toy line which I foolishly assumed would be brought over to the USA by Hasbro as they did with Beyblade. I still imported pretty much the whole line, mostly because I was so high on vintage Battle Beasts and filled with optimism for the Minimates that I simply had to have everything - and now I don't feel that way. Because this line burned out quickly I actually kind of miss it, even the clear repaints which I was actually starting to get sick of after the third series. Two more unpainted series were planned, and were mercifully axed before it was too late.
