Sadly short or not it is great news! I noticed it earlier today as well I guess Tars Tarkas tweeted about it via Twitter but due to the busy Christmas days I didn´t have had the time to look into it yet.
But at first sight it looks like this is another clear homage to the Beastformers line in a relatively ¨short¨ period. Earlier this year, in April 2017, Takara (Tomy Takara) already came with the Takara SF Land Evolution Book which has been well known by TF fans but which this year also showed the Beastformers. Here is the article I created about this release on the Beastformers Blog: TAKARA´s Salute to the Beastformers
It looks like the second homage to the Beastformers line this year which might not really be a coincident knowing the Beasts were released in 1987 not only in Japan as most of us know so that means 2017 is the 30th birthday of the Beasts.
I´m really exited to see how their appearance is received by the TF community because even though this is a Japanese release I´m sure it´ll be noticed and shared internationally as well via the TF community. Most of them already know about the connection between the TF line and the Beastformers but it is always good to see publications like these.
Some pretty interesting appearances of great Beasts, including the Godbeasts indeed, on just those two pages. Hope we´ll be able to get a translation of this short mange soon.
Thanks for sharing this GanguStars!
