" his weakness to fire." i can see the battle now: "you may have beat me to a bloody pulp, broken both my legs and shattered my spine, but i have a LIT MATCH!! whatre you gonna do NOW???"

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:35 PM)

he's also addicted to Oreos. so, two weaknesses. :p

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:34 PM)

I remember Justice League left out his eye beams and played down his strength a bit, which I presume was done to help deifferentiate him from Superman.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:32 PM)

There's a reason why he's considered one of the most powerful of the JLA. Only one they can depend on to defeat him is Plastic Man, due to his brain's malleability.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:27 PM)

Wow, reading about all his powers, he's actually kind of overpowered aside from his weakness to fire.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:23 PM)

Martian Manhunter can disguise himself as anyone, shrink, grow, become invisible, stretch out his limbs, pop out extra arms, change his arms into blades, do all sorts of psychic stuff...

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:22 PM)

Which is kind of dumb. Aside from being a super-strong flying alien with eye beams that wears a cape and has super senses, there's a lot of differences.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:18 PM)

the higher-ups at WB apparently consider Martian Manhunter redundant- a "green Superman." that''s suposedly why hes left out.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:16 PM)

I wouldn't mind seeing them put Steel in one of the DCEU movies, as long as they're better than the last three.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:12 PM)

Really, he should be one of the easiest JL members to cast. You can take any guy of any race who's muscular enough for the role. It'd probably piss off the purists who want everything to be as close to the comics as possible, but you can't do anything without pissing them off.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Foffy's right. I mean, they don't have to keep Martian Manhunter white. He can disguise himself as any race.

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

@Paladin I feel like Martian Manhunter would probably be played by a black actor anyway, though? I mean, his VAs in both the DCAU and The Batman were african american. Also, movies are a separate medium from comics.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

He's, like, the least interesting Earth GL.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Hal Jordan is honestly a really boring character.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:04 PM)

I mean, I don't hate Aquaman or Hal Jordan, but I like Martian Manhunter a lot more.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:02 PM)

Meh, if I were then I would have just used John Stewart as Green Lantern, but I'd also have used Wally West instead of Barry Allen.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 05:59 PM)

because then WB has a reason/excuse to actually cast a black guy in the movie.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Nah, just stick him on a Wildstorm title, great idea.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Like, it's nice have Cybog getting his dues, but you could've have had him replaced Aquaman, not the guy who's literally been on every incarnation of the team and is it's heart and soul.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:51 PM)

Why on the New 52, Martian Manhunter isn't one of the finding JLA members.

You know what I'll never understand?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 05:01 PM)

There are shops with lots of pre-owned stuff like Mandarake, so it doesn't necessarily need to be retail, depending on where he's going.

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 02:28 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:39 PM)

But barnacles don't have- *checks* "The main sense of barnacles appears to be touch, with the hairs on the limbs being especially sensitive. The adult also has a single eye, although this is probably only capable of sensing the difference between light and dark.[4]This eye is derived from the primarynaupliar eye." Huh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (29 April 2017 - 01:29 PM)

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 01:26 PM)

He was killed by his own ugliness. Kind of a "Hoist by His Own Petard" thing.

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:12 PM)

How did the barnacle get killed if everyone died from his ugliness?

hug. I had already convinced myself that I didn't want these guys and that the minimates were the better (and less expensive) toys.

These pics absolutely blow that theory out of the water. They are absolutely gorgeous and I need every single one of them. These are clearly the better Battle Beasts.

OK, THIS is more like it. These are so much more what I want in a Battle Beast revival than the Minimates stuff.

Looks like they use the Bot Shots type tumbler in the chest. Plus battle dice, and cards, and sometimes hand held weapons and playmat boosters? Thats an intricate seeming game. But I'm cool with that. icon-hotrod.gif

Design-wise I think they're just slightly on the "staid" side. So many of the originals were so weird and quirky. Some of these are just a little "normal." That's a very minor aesthetic quible though. They're really a pretty good update. Some are spot on.

This guy is RIGHT ON the old Battle Beast style:
http://www.robotking...p...g=us&CatID=

These are pretty close too:

I would 100% buy these if they came out in the US. Part of me wants to import them and I don't import anything.


-ZacWilliam, wishes Hasbro would import these and throw a new Battle Beasts anime on the Hub. Sold.

I don't think they'd have any right to.

They've sat on whatever rights they have for years now and not produced much at all. And what they are just now putting together doesn't look nearly as good or as true to the old Battle Beasts as what Takara has done here.


-ZacWilliam, I can see where they'd be concerned, I'd be far more likely to import one of these than buy one of their minimates even with the price difference, but I don't think they've got real grounds to be angry...

I wouldn't be too sure of that. Hasbro/Takara are much larger more powerful companies than DST, with much bigger broader markets and lots more money. At most I think it could keep them from being called "Battle Beasts" if released here, but y'know I honestly doubt even that.

If Has/Tak want to release something here, a check to DST would be pretty simple for them I think.


-ZacWilliam, of course who knows if Hasbro would want to, but I'd love it if they did. Oh the blind-pack spending...

Now I am confused. I thought DST had the rights to these? And the toyline is confirmed to be coming in the autumn this year...

I must say, I was never a fan of the old toys, and while I can understand why people who liked them would love these, they are just not doing it for me... their legs and arms, like for the old toys, are out of proportion (too long arms, too short legs) and articulation seems to be just as basic as in 1987, which is kind of pushing it in 2012. So i'll wait for the DST versions, rather.

That said, "Battle Hamster" or whatever his name is is just hilarious. icon-hotrod.gif

These are incredible. They're everything updated battle beasts should be. And more. I'm so pumped for the game as well. I think these would definitively have a place on toy shelves over here. I wouldn't even care if Hasbro dusted off "Beast Wars" and through that on their packaging.

Now, the real question is, when can I buy these?

Praise being said, I still want some minimate battle beasts. All this product is making up for their complete absence as a line for over 20 years. I wouldn't want to sacrifice one for the other-I want them all.

From the prototype shots, I think they have arm, leg, and some neck articulation. Also, they may be dice shooters.

I'll probably fall on them once HLJ.com does their listing. I've never had a problem with Robotkingdom, but their checkout is a headache.

Dice Shooter never occured to me. I just figured the square symbol pieces were tumblers like Bot Shots have, but that could make a lot of sense! Especially with the dice booster packs shown.

These prices are encouraging. I was more than a bit concerned that these were going to be pretty damn big. (Due to the tiny hand holes and theories about the chest-gimmick.)

But at the prices at which BBTS have listed them? They must be close to the original Battle Beasts' size. So... Consider me a lot happier about these!

But wouldn't that mean producing them over under another name, then rebranding the line?

I could certainly see Hasbro wanting to offer these as a another Bakugan competitor, but I think the nostalgia factor is nill, outside of a few folks like us.
