C2E2 2012: DST & IDW Release Battle Beasts!

C2E2 2012: DST & IDW Release Battle Beasts!

Fire! Wood! Or Water! Before there were the Beast Wars, there were Battle Beasts! Released in Japan as an offshoot of the Transformers (BeastFormers), they came to the USA in the late 1980s as Battle Beasts... and they are coming back.



In 2010, Diamond Select Toys (DST) acquired the Battle Beasts brand and in 2012 they are partnering with IDW to bring Battle Beasts back to the comics world. But first, they are bringing some preview goods to C2E2 2012...

Fans attending C2E2 2012 will be able to acquire an ashcan preview of the upcoming Battle Beasts mini-series and a Minimate of one of the lead characters (Vorin, the ram character).

The Battle Beasts mini-series will be written by Bobby Curnow, with pencils by Valerio Schit. The story will focus on Beasts who return to Earth to protect the ultimate weapon from other beasts who want it.

In July, Battle Beasts invade San Diego Comic-Con to launch their comic mini-series and DST will unveil their full line of Battle Beasts Minimates which will make their way to stores in the Fall.

Battle Beasts #1 will be in stores in July 2012, retailing for $3.99
