Don’t Have a Cow (Or Do), DST’s Second ‘Battle Beast’ Series Is Coming Summer 2014 [First Look]

Battle Beasts Series 2 Main
Diamond Select Toys/Art Asylum

Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum’s first series of Battle Beasts based on the IDW comic book by Bobby Curnow and Valerio Schiti introduced fans to a fresh take on the revived 1980s anthropomorphic animal adventure, but there’s a whole lot more where that came from. This summer eight new dimension-displaced beasts will join the fray, including two warriors fans didn’t see in the comic — and we’ve got an early first-look.

Initially shown this past summer at San Diego Comic-Con, the new figures will be sold online and at specialty shops grouped into $9.99 two-packs containing Giraffe and Hammerhead, Cow and Bear, Cobra and Bat, plus Anubis and Thrush. If some of those names seem a little generic, they are — Diamond Select is still perfecting their picks, but will have proper monikers for each chosen soon. Those who’ve read the Battle Beasts comic will recognize everybody in the line, with the exception of Thrush and the upcoming Bat figure.

While Diamond Select and Art Asylum always encourage fans to take full advantage of the modular nature of the Minimates line, Battle Beasts are especially adept at being swapped to create horrifying chimeras. That’s all well and good, but personally I’m the most interested in owning a 2″ tall warrior cow toy with 14 points of articulation. Dude looks like he’s got some moooooooves. Maybe the coolest bovine-based figure since Ryan Brown’s Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa toys?
