    As a huge fan of Battle Beasts and LaserBeasts, I felt obligated to transform the amazingly cool Draego-Man into the equally amazing and cool Skull Grotess of the Laserbeasts.

    I've always been a huge Battle Beasts fan, but could never justify buying Chief Carniuvs until now. How I didn't see him as a perfect base for White Leo when he first came out is beyond me.

    And inspired from a great idea my buddy DestrongerLupus had way back when we were working on a BeastFormers comic:

    Thanks! The next step is to actually apply paint to the figures and hope they come out looking like the digibashes :) 

    I thought about digibashing a full line, but most of them would just be palette swapped figs with a BB head pasted on like so:

    (always thought the line would benefit from some female beasts)

    I think the MOTUC line is ideal for BB customs, with all the interchangeable armor the combinations would allow for sme pretty good BB likenesses. The only thing really needed would be heads. If someone a lot more 3D savvy than me were to offer animal heads via Shapeways or somehing, I think you could probably knock out a majority of the Battle Beasts and Laser Beasts with some paint and some minor mods.

    Not sure what that has to do with the digibashes, but sure, why not?

    I agree, this is why I'm stoked about all the Battle Beast lines that seem to be popping up (Beast Saga, Armovors, the short lived but still possible Rise of the Beasts-but I despise the Minimates line), but part of me really wishes there was a full scaled, articulated version of those fuzzy warriors. It's funny, the more I worked on these digibashes, the more I started thinking the Battle Beasts would mesh as well with the MOTUC universe as well as they did TF, possibly better with the right story.

    Thanks!

    Thank you! I originally fitted a laser disc onto Grotess, but didn't really like the way that it looked.

    I decided to reference the heat rubs by making White Leo's cloak clasp black, but there's definitely no replacing that tell-tale black square:)

    I already own these motoc and would gladly buy them again in these decos.

    If you don't mind, can I share these on he-man.org?

    So would I, in a heartbeat! Plus it would be a funny jab at Hasbro. Feel free to post these on the org if you'd like!

    Many thanks! The more I look at the figures in the line the more Battle Beasts I'm starting to see. I may have to take a crack at sculpting some heads!

    He's what kicked off this whole idea, after him, Chief Carnivus into White Leo just made all the sense in the world :)

    Great ideas! I love Battle Beasts and I love MOTUC, so this is right up my alley! Love it!

    Although that Rabbit-Lyn is freaking me right the hell out. :)

    Haha, you know, if we replaced MerMan's head, painted hos armor yellow and maroon, then rigged his left hand to be replaced with the sword... that might work out nicely!

    Thanks! I'm a big fan of the tireless effort you've put in on those Botcon digibashes! And I agree, Rabbit-Lyn is a bit freaky :lol , she's in bad need of an MOTUC styled head!
