Transformers Artifact of the Week: Beast Wars Magnet Figures

Beast Wars Magnet figures were released in 1997. They came packaged two ways. Individually they came in gashapon capsules. These included the catalog shown above. They are small plastic figures with a magnet on the back. The cool thing is that they are very nicely painted. I am still missing Tarantulas to complete the set of 10.

The second way they are packaged is in 3-Packs. I have no idea how many different 3-Packs there are for Beast Wars. As they are ten in total, either they all don’t come on cards, or some contain duplicates. I have also found a Beast Wars II Magnet Figures 3-Pack. No idea how many of these there are. I haven’t found any individual ones from capsules, but I assume they exist.

If you have any further info on these, or even better, no where I can find any that I’m missing, please leave a message below.

As always, you can find over 17,000 Transformers artifacts from every Transformers series and generation at

Thanks for reading!

I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.

    I have seen three different 3-packs for each BW (Waspeeter/Convoy/Terrosaurer, Rhinox/Cheetas/Megatron, Tarans/Dinobot/Rattle) and BWII (LioConvoy/Galvatron/Thrust, Scuba/Tasmania Kid/Dirge, and Bighorn, Apache, Diver). I’ve yet to see any individual BWII magnets in gashapon capsules.
