Beast Wars Telemocha Series was Takara’s equivalent to Hasbro’s Beast Wars 10th Anniversary reissue line. Released entirely in 2007, the series succeeded a one-set toyline known as Beast Wars Reborn, which is also included in this wiki section. Even though the name Telemocha seems to imply “distant coffee” to English speakers, it is a portmanteau of television and omocha (toy), essentially touting the figures’ screen accuracy.
Despite the superficial similarity to Beast Wars 10th, Telemocha was distint in several ways. While both lines used the original Beast Wars Deluxe class molds in premium “show-accurate” decos, Telemochca used selections from Japan-only Beast Wars II and Beast Wars Neo. Of the figures that were shared across the Pacific, none used exactly the same deco, and often used different base plastics. Each Telemocha figure was packaged with a DVD containing an episode of the Japanese-dubbed Mainframe Beast Wars cartoon (even if the character was from Neo or II), and also contained a series of stills of the Telemocha figures interacting with contemporary Movie Fast Action Battlers in front of CGI backgrounds. Like Beast Wars 10th, Telemocha included redecoes of Ultra class Optimus and Megatron, despite the Beast Wars Reborn set of the previous year, while not utilizing the retooling done for the Reborn set.
