SACRED BEAST LEGEND BIOROID
Here I'm going to talk about one of my favourite transforming robot toy lines and series called Sacred Beast Legend Bioroid
by toy companies MARK
I believe MARK and SELECT are or were toy company partners and HERO a toy consumer company and worked together to make these toys and mostly all of them were made in Japan, China, Taiwan and I've heard other foreign countries as well.
It will also serve as a origins explanation of the many incarnations of these toys that were made after and that some people are familiar with or remember them in different contents all over the world!
Now a interesting note if people are very familiar with toy company SELECT
then know their toy line series CONVERTORS
which had many different types of transforming robot toys from their own original toys and used some other original toy companies toy molds/characters and slightly retooled or renamed them for their own use and those being from TAKATOKU TOYS
etc. TOY COMPANY TRADEMARK LOGOS
The toy series was made in 1986-87 from Japan and presented 2 sides to each team with a story and character profiles for them being the justice legion TRIANFORCE
and the evil legion DELTAFORCE
. The toys were a combination of bio-humanoid, robotic and transforming beasts and the whole toy line consisted of a total of 18 collectables within the series.
I'm going to divide this topic in a separate 2 parter. First part I'll cover the TRIANFORCE and second part I'll cover the DELTAFORCE. For the most of this review I'll show my own personal collection I have from this toy series and with additions of original photo owners photos to explain the product material as examples.
On to the review!
I've translated the profiles simple on google translate
for the toys from a accurate website who has all these toys and info which I'll provide the website link at the end of the topic.
This is my very first TRIANFORCE toy member and hoping to find the rest. If you have any sources please contact me, I'd be very very interested to do business with you!CHARACTER BIO

One of my favourite parts when owning at least one of toys complete with everything is the toy catalogue which shows the whole toy line up. There was 9 in total of the TRIANFORCE you could collect. It shows all the profile descriptions of the toys/characters with beautiful designing, toy photos, and toy artwork.TRIANFORCE

This is a book that has nearly every piece of work that the toy company did as well as the BIOROID series. These are scanned pages showing the TRIANFORCE. OCTYMUS
