Battle Beasts!!!
« on: July 27, 2015, 09:01:35 PM »

Use to be nuts for these things


Haven't thought about them in ages but they were so wonderful.

Anyone else have a love for these things?

I was thinking about this a few days back.  They were really fun to collect.

Oh, I do remember those. Like a silly precursor to Pokemon starters.

haha, fuck yes. I finally got a complete set about a month ago, after going on eBay and spending ridiculous loads of money on the harder-to-find ones. I had about 55 of them from when I was a kid, but most were missing arms (they're fragile as fuck). Now I've got all of the main Battle Beasts, minus a pile of weapons (which I don't really care about). Got three of the little wind-up Vehicles, too. I want the three BIG playsets (the Eagle, Beetle & Shark), but they're WAY too expensive for my tastes.

I hadn't thought about these things in probably about 25 years, so it's amusing that they're apparently a commodity. I can't recall any in particular that I did or didn't have (though a lot of the ones in the picture above look familiar). I'm sure most of them were missing their little sticker, though.

The minimates battle beasts are kinda meh. The original ones were so legit. The rabbit is a fucking god.

I had the Rhino and maybe one other. Just never got into them, though I thought they were cool. Too much awesome shit came out in 80's.

They had a real rock, paper, scissors thing going:

Also some awesome carriers or vehicles IIRC.

Agreed that the mini-mate versions are bunk
