Rise of the Beasts! Series 1.
Rise of the Beasts is a
new collectible offering in the spirit of classic 80's toylines like
M.U.S.C.L.E., Battle Beasts, He-Man and Thundercats! Savage Beasts that radiate power combine with ancient technology long lost to modern man.
Whether you are a fan of mini-monos or small painted, articulated
figures, you will LOVE these figures!
Series 1 consists of 4 figures - A Lion, a
Gorilla, a Horned Toad and a Komodo Dragon. The first 3 beast's heroic
body styles were partially inspired by classic toy lines like
Thundercats, Sectaurs and Masters of the Universe. The 4th is suggestive
of the fantastic Battle Beasts line with its squat, muscular
proportions. Series 1 will be made of PVC (like M.U.S.C.L.E.s, Battle
Beasts, etc.), approximately 60mm tall, available in both painted and
non-painted formats, with a weapon and joints at the shoulders. Here are
a few images showing the figures.
The Lion will be cast in white PVC. For the painted version, the armor will be charcoal gray with red highlights. His hair will, of course, be yellow.
The Gorilla will be cast in black PVC. For the painted version, the
armor will be red with black highlights.
The Horned Toad will be cast in red PVC. For the painted version, the
armor will be black with yellowish highlights.
The shorter Komodo Dragon will be cast in a dark green PVC. For the painted version, the
armor will be bronze.
These figures are AWESOME! and will be even more incredible once they are home with you on your toy shelf! So let's make this project a success! Spread the word and let's try to not only fund Series 1 but fund enough to get Series 2 going as well.
