    "Over the last year, Diamond Select Toys has been teasing their upcoming Battle Beasts toy line (Battle Beasts were known as Beast Formers in Japan, for anyone questioning their connection to Transformers) by giving away exclusive figures at conventions and shows. Now, however, it looks as though they are finally gearing up to release these figures at retail!

    Xybot found the following listing for the anthropomorphic animals, which may mean they may be on shelves sooner rather than later! (Yes, TRU means Toys R Us!)
    MINIMATES MAX BATTLE BEASTS WAVE 1 (TRU)

    Also, ToyNewsI has received an image of the Battle Beast figure that will be released alongside a Minimates carrying case. This figure is a red repaint of the crocodile Battle Beast that DST used to tease the toy line!

    They were also one of the ally races in the Japanese "Headmasters" series. Loved the original toys, at least until they introduced the "Sun" faction.

    i played with one of the exclusive ones awhile ago, and hate it... the minimate body style just doesn't lend itself well to this concept... which sucks, cuz i love my battle beasts. still wanna finish my collection someday.

    Hasn't this been like a couple years now? So the newest image we get is a repaint of the croc? Lame.

    Red huh? Not white?

    Well good to know this line is going to be slavishly re-creating the vintage line ;) 

    I just realized, I'm totally "geewun" over BattleBeasts :lol

    Love the original Battle Beasts, the newer ones seem to have more detail however with figures on this scale I'm not too concerned about too much detail.

    I will be very hard pressed to avoid picking these up.

    I only had a few Battle Beasts when I was a kid but I thought they were cool as hell.
