First it was a comic book teaser, but now it looks like an all out micro assault.
Actually first first off it was a toy line in the 1980s that was loosely connected to the Transformers. Relive your youth with this classic commercial.
A year or so ago Diamond Select Toys announces that they have the rights to make new toys of these figures and will be incorporating them into their MiniMates line.
A teaser of such a figure was handed out as a give a way at the New York Toy Fair. Just to tease and build interest.
There were four versions of this figure. Three were handed out at conventions and then a red one which could be found in a MiniMates case, and thus the only one available for the general public to buy.
Now as if that’s not enough, it was recently announced that IDW will be publishing a brand new Battle Beasts comic book series. Check out some of this great art.

And all this is topped by TakaraTomy making all new versions of the toys in Japan. These will be called Beast Fight, but they are obviously a continuation of the Battle Beasts line.
