Let's keep it simple: I love Battle Beasts, you love Battle Beasts.  I love enamel pins.  You love enamel pins.  Or you like them.  Or you don't really care, but anything cool related to Battle Beasts and you're all in.  Maybe you're just simply into toys from the 80's.  Maybe you're just really into shiny metal things.  

No matter - you are all welcome here!  

Some info about the pins:

  • Beast is 2" tall, Weapon is 1.25"
  • Soft enamel
  • Zinc alloy
  • Plating is black metal dye
  • 2-3 pin posts on back 
  • Each Beast pin comes with an accompanying Weapon pin 

Hey, I'm new at this.

But this is going to happen.  I have the manufacturer already.  You can see the designs and mock-ups. See below for several pictures of completed Lion pins. For the rest, the final result may vary slightly from the designs shown here. 

While many Beasts are still in just design form, this is the ACTUAL Lion pin!

Pledge now, pay later.   

You won't be charged until the end of the campaign, and only if the initial goal is funded.  I decided I didn't want to make locked designs.  Instead, y'all can pledge at the outset for exactly what you want.  If we can gather enough support, we can make this happen!

Risks and challenges

Pin may vary slightly after production if certain aspects cannot be achieved, however it will never be drastically different from my design. I have a high standard when it comes to quality and control.
Pins can take time to produce, around 4-6 weeks and then need shipping to me as well as back out to the customers so patience is required. There is always a risk of pins being defective, if this is the case for more than enough to send to backers, we would need to get replacements causing further delay in the pins reaching you. This is a very rare case and will be resolved timely.
