from Allspark "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!"
