Just a quick question for collectors of the line...

 

Are the Beast Saga figures worth investing in? Thinking of buying some soon.

If you can find them at decent prices in the states. I wouldn't pay extra money to have them shipped from overseas.

I have most of them, and they are cool and interesting. But I way over paid for mine when I was collecting them. It's not a popular or well liked Line, so it's no need to pay a bunch of money for them.

I would say no more than $10 per figure. I've seen them go for $5 a piece on multiple occasions.

I just bought a nice little lot off eBay :D

 

£150 (about $194) including postage.

For 38 figures, works out at a little over $5 per figure.

 

Rather pleased with this and looking forward to checking them out :D

Looks like you did pretty well.

I was going to say, $5 to $10 per figure is fair.

Now the dilemma, do you open them up or leave them in the package?

I opened some of mine and left some in the package.

It looks like you nabbed damn near every figure they released too, short of the blind packed translucent figures and the mini bases.

Well friggin' done.

Thanks Draz :D

 

i think I'm one short, though. I'm sure I read somewhere that there were 39 figures released, not 38?

It's been awhile since I looked at the Beast Saga stuff, (you're kinda making me miss it now!), but I think you've got a complete set. I'm not seeing anything you'd be missing.

After opening my figures (with GREAT joy!!) I'm only missing the Alligator, which comes in the 'Super Winning' Starter set.

 

Ebay, here I come!!! :D

The alligator definitely comes alone! The only set I recall buying was the ocean set.

I could be mistaken, but double-check!

Just checked. The Alligator was indeed a single figure.

Guess the guy I bought them off didn't actually have him.

Still, just ordered the 'Super Wins' set off Amazon at a decent price, and the figures in that set look way more badass than their single pack counterparts :)

 

The detail on that Alligator is amazing :D
