    I know there are a few Battle Beast figure fans here (i've PM'ed back and forth with some) so i'm passing along the word..
    Last month we were discussing the early teaser image release of this line in the Battle Beasts thread on Hisstank ( a GI JOE forum) and now it looks to be a full blown line!

    Rise of the Beasts - Series 1 by Jon Karis — Kickstarter

    An exclusive gold armored lion figure has been added as a free bonus for pledges above a certain level! :

    As a fan of M.U.S.C.L.E.S. and Battle Beasts (not to mention owning Masters of The Universe product both vintage and MOTUC) this is everything i love wrapped in one package :D 

    I'm all over these so i figured some of the old school fans of MUSCLES and Battle Beast would want to know !

    I love the original line. I still have a few left, I was thinking of tracking those all down. Might bite on this.

    Sweet! Had muscles and battle beasts as a kid but had since forgotten about them over the years! Sigh! Yet another thing to wring my wallet out over!

    Apparently Series 2 is finished or is 90% finished so a Bat character may show up . I know i'm equally excited about the potential for Series 2 as i am about Series 1 which is why i've pledged $45.


    This line has SO much potential!

    Which is why anyone who is hoping for something out of Series 2 should pledge something for friggin series 1 :lol  if the goals not met we could only end up seeing 1 staggered release at a time if that.

    And pledged. $45 for a set of painted and a set of unpainted is a great deal. I've done a few custom BBs before, it'll be neat to do that on a larger scale too.

    Still a long way to go though... I hope this comes through.

    I went with the $200, as I like the artwork. Hopefully I can pick which piece.

    This is a very cool project. Do I need to pay directly when I pledge, or does it charge me like a pre-order system once they get made? I am ridiculously strapped for cash as of late :/

    You never pay for a Kickstarter upfront. For the typical ones, you don't even pay your pledge unless the target is met. Only if it's successful do you get charged, which would be on March 14.

    Your card will not be charged unless / until the Kickstarter drive reaches it's funding goal :) 

    So make the pledge and if we all hit the goal then fantastic! If not then you wont be charged.
