Too much info hidden away in the fading memories of old toy designers.
That´s definitely something we should prevent at any costs just like the info about the original line but with the shifting change of some newer collectors who like to copy from the original line it´s becoming harder and harder to keep things pure and real.
It´s a shame for sure that in almost 30 years time the BB themselves still prove to be the best because you can´t imagine the hopes we´ve all had for a line like the Beast Saga to be much closer to the BB line to begin with and even though it wasn´t that what we´d hoped for to at least live a little longer than the BB. The DST attempt under the Battle Beasts name was a shameful attempt trying to ride a nostalgic wave that they´d hoped to purchase with the license of the name, this was definitely the biggest failure. Jon´s (Jkaris) Rise of the Beasts line was a serious and respectful 21st century take on the BB but it also showed how hard it is to get a line like that going.
With all these attempts to me it´s pretty clear that IF we ever get to see a good new BB inspired line it has to come from the fans. The knowledge, skills, energy, people are all there but it has to line up perfectly and in the end it´ll all come down to funds which is always the biggest hiccup. I had and still have plans enough but it´s just a whole lot more complicated to pull it of in a successful way if it was easy we´d have seen much more attempts by now and we´d have much more Rise of the Beasts characters around already as well.
Whatever happens we won´t let the 30th Anniversary of the Beasts pass without a decent celebration
