The Japan-exclusive Beast Wars II toy-line took and mostly redecoed already-existing molds from previous toy lines, such as Beast Wars, Generation 2, and even Generation One. Only three characters received new toy molds: Moon, Lio Convoy and Galvatron.

Cybertrons

For the most part, the regular Cybertrons for the Beast Wars II line were repaints of Beast Wars figures which did not have characterizations in the show. In this category, only the Cybertron leader, Lio Convoy, received a newly designed figure.

This toy is identical to B'Boom, transforming into a mandrill. His beast mode face has spring-activated features, with a spring-loaded missile launcher in his mouth. This launcher becomes a hand-held weapon in robot mode. He has a third "artillery station" mode that a Basic-sized toy can pilot. He was available both as an individual and in a two-pack with Megastorm.
A special contest-prize version of Apache in a kind of camo-green was given away as a prize from Comic Bom Bom magazine, as part of a "design a Cybertron" contest, along with new-color versions of all five main Maximals from the series. How many of these Apaches were awarded is unknown.

Galvatron Lio Convoy was a special 'Lucky Draw' prize exclusive which saw the figure repainted into Galvatron's lavender and purple color scheme.

Lio Junior also enjoyed an exclusive Red and Black redeco as well as a white redeco included in Takara puzzle-kits. Both could still be used to form the main body of Magnaboss.

Destrons

The Destrons of the Beast Wars II line primarily relied on releases dating from the Generation 2 toy line. Megastorm, Starscream, and BB are all redecos of toys first seen in Generation 2. Thrust and Dirge were made from the Machine Wars Flipchanger Jets, which were toys originally meant for Generation 2. Only Galvatron would get an original toy made for him.

Japanese ID number: D-12, VS-12
Megastorm is slight redeco of the large Megatron tank from the Generation 2 toy line. He has darkened eyes and a slightly different sticker assortment. The toy retains the launching missile gimmick, but loses the electronics found in the earlier toy. The toy was released individually or as a two-pack with the Cybertron Apache.
In Korea and Indonesia, Megastorm was also released as a Decepticon in the Car Robots line as a Decepticon-styled Destron.
Japanese ID number: D-13, VS-13
Starscream and BB are black and purple redecos of the Generation 2 figures Dreadwing and Smokescreen, respectively. The smaller jet, Starscream, has two missile launcher guns and can link up with the larger stealth bomber 'BB' to form a more 'complete' jet mode. 'BB' has a Gatling missile cannon which can fire six missiles in quick seccesion as well as a number of 'bomb ports' which can drop missiles straight down from jet mode. Lastly, BB is also capable of assuming a 'Cybertronic Tank' mode, which uses the Gatling launcher as its turret.
The two figures were sold together or also in a three-pack which also included the Cybertron Bighorn.
The colors used for this version of the mold are similar to the ones planned for Generation 2 Megatron's ATB release. The stickers, of course, are wildly different.
The smaller jet toy is intended to be 'Starscream', but the stickers placed on the toy have him misspelled as 'Starcream'. The correct spelling is used on the package and instructions, however.
Japanese ID number: D-14, VS-14
Dirge is a redeco of the Machine Wars Thundercracker/Skywarp mold, transforming from a Dassault Rafale fighter jet to robot mode with a spring-loaded one-step transformation.

Japanese ID number: D-16, VS-16
Galvatron transforms into a technological lavender dragon or into a heavily armed mining drill tank. The toy has firing missile weapons and a large 'grabber claw' gimmick made of the dragon's leg.

Both a gold-chromed version and silver-chromed version of the figure was also made available as a 'Lucky Draw' extremely rare exclusive.
An orange and gray redeco of the figure was planed as Galvatron's final upgrade with Unicron's essence for Beast Wars Neo, but was never released. (The character, in this form, did appear in the show, however.)

Autorollers

The Autorollers figures are redecos of the Auto Rollers from the Generation 2 line, including two figures that were not previously released. All four Autorollers were released as Destrons.
In Korea and Indonesia, the Autorollers also released as Decepticons in the Car Robots line.

Japanese ID number: D-21

Halfshell is a white, teal, and gold recolor of the Seacon Snaptrap. The toy can transform into a robotic snapping turtle with 'pom-pom' guns on its back, or form the main body of God Neptune. Despite rumors to the contrary, Halfshell is not related to the Pokemon, Blastoise.
Sea Phantom is a white and gray recolor of the Seacon Overbite. The figure can transform into a robotic shark creature or limb of God Neptune. The toy lacks the 'Targetmaster' accessories to allow him to convert to gun mode, however.

Cyborg Beasts

The Cyborg Beasts were the final toys released for the Beast Wars II line. The toys were each heavily retooled versions of older toys (mostly from Beast Wars), designed to make them look like monstrous fusions of standard Beast Wars designs and technological robots. Each toy was presented as an 'upgrade' to one of the original Beast Wars II Destrons.
Japanese ID number: D-22
Gigastorm is a partial retool and redeco of Generation One's Trypticon. The 'new' toy adds a dino-mode nose-horn and removes the metal ball-bearings from the outsides of the legs. The toy also gains a number of 'detailing' paint-applications, but loses nearly all of Trypticon's weapons and accessories, as well as his electronics.
