Comics Alliance reveals the long-awaited (by me, anyway) return of the Battle Beasts franchise, in comic and toy form!
Diamond Select has been dropping hints since 2009 about new Battle Beasts products, but I'd all but forgotten about them.
I still have the complete American toyline in storage: all the figures, all the vehicles, and all the proper accessories. Even the mail-away poster. (I'm missing about 3/4s of the Japan-only figures, and I gave up trying to track those down back in the late '90s. They're expensive.)
I was pretty obsessive about these little rubbery guys, because I can't look at them and NOT think Gamma World. (And, looking back, I was 14 at the time...so what the hell was going through my head?)
Sigh. I guess I'm no better now, as 25 years later, it looks like I'll need to make some room....
