As promised a couple days ago there´d be an article on the Beastformers Blog about this new line from Italy which seems to be well received amongst various types of mini figure collectors. Where for some of you, as Gormiti collectors, it might not be completely new to find awesome new figures in, and exclusively for, Italy for us as Battle Beasts fans it was quite a surprise when we got confronted with these figures for the first time. They´ve just been released in Italy for a couple of weeks but there is already a lot of interest in this line from outside Italy as well.

 

In order to compose a solid page for this line in English there´s been contact with the company behind this line, Diramix Srl, asking them a couple of questions and there´s been some translation work done in order to be as complete as possible.

 

On the Beastformers Blog two pages about his line can be found:

 

MEGANTIK PAGE: with the general info about this line including a checklist of the figures and an explanation of the game. 

MEGANTIK REVIEW by Beastformers: in which several details of this line are discussed including the rumor of a possible connection to Hasbro as well as some proper size comparisons with the original Battle Beasts, Laser Beasts and Beast Saga lines.

 

For those of you who would like to see more of this line first have a look at the official TV commercial (in Italian);

 

 

 

Click on the image at the beginning of this post to go to the Beastformers Blog and visit the pages there if you´re interested.
Could this be a future BB line in disguise?

 

Enjoy the Megantik!

Many thanks, White Rabbit. :)
It's Cool!!!

I am examining it to buy it at ebay Italy.
However, the postage from Italy to Japan is expensive!

These look cool, thanks for the head's up, I'll keep an eye out for them, (but I still got a bunch of Gormiti to get around to collecting eventually too!)

Hi everyone,

This is really for all UK members out there - I'm going to Italy tomorrow for the week and will have capacity to bring back some blind packs of Megantik if anyone is interested? We can work out postage, etc. afterwards but please let me know ASAP if you want some!

Cheers.

For those who might be interested I´ll soon have a limited amount of full sets available for the US based LRG members;

If you´re a BB fan and liked the Beast Saga line these are definitely worth a shot and if you have any doubts about them read the articles and review about them first ;)
