First look at BWII Leo Galvatron plus 6 TV Magazine issues from 1999 added
May 22nd, 2011 11:51:28

The latest parts of our Spring / Summer Special updates are now online.  Today's updated focuses on more Japanese Hobby / Collectors Magazine and features a first look at a forgotten Japanese Beast Wars II Lucky Draw the Leo Convoy coloured Galvatron toy!!  Many of you were probably not even aware of this toys existance, and even those who were have probably never seen images of this toy before.

The update means that you can now find scans of every Transformers toy and image that appeared in the issues of TV Magazine, listed below, which was originally published in Japan back in 1999.

This batch of magazine scans includes high resolution images of the Colouring Competition Beast Wars II toys

  1. TV Magazine January 1999 - 71 images (Beast Wars, Beast Wars II, Microman and Burning Convoy, Flash Lio Convoy and Black Lio Convoy toys)
  2. TV Magazine February 1999 - 58 images (Beast Wars II, Dinozone, Microman)
  3. TV Magazine March 1999 - 58 images (Beast Wars II, Beast Wars Neo, Microman)
  4. TV Magazine April 1999 - 35 images (Beast Wars Neo, Microman, Gold Beast Wars Neo Medallion)
  5. TV Magazine May 1999 - 44 images (Beast Wars Neo, Microman, Dinozone)
  6. TV Magazine June 1999 - 36 images (Beast Wars Neo, Microman, Dinozone)

The famous Beast Wars II Colouring Competition prizes feature in one of these magazines.  These toys have only previously been seen in very low resolution images and no information on them was known before we picked up these magazines.

The article is a little confusing as the competition is to win a custom coloured toy based around your winning entry - however the toys shown (those believed to be the prizes) have already been made by Takara to demonstrate the idea.  This would indicate that these particular toys were not the Lucky Draw Beast Wars II Coloring Competition Prizes, but are purely mock-ups.  This would explain why they have not made it to the secondary market (eBay, Yahoo Japan or Taobao).

You also have scans of various Beast Wars Neo profile cards, images from Beast Wars Metals, Beast Wars II, Beast Wars II The Movie, Beast Wars Neo along with Microman (from Takara) and Dinozone (from Bandai).
